Open Positions

Current vacancies in Lund Stem Cell Center Research Groups:

Biomedical Analyst/ Research engineer in stem cell research

The Lund Stem Cell Center FACS Core Facility is seeking a biomedical analyst / research engineer in stem cell research to join their team. The FACS Core Facility is an important unit within the Center and its purpose is to develop and offer high-quality services in the field of flow cytometry to researchers at Lund University, as well as, external research groups.

The candidate will support the management of FACS instruments within the facility and associated laboratory work. They should have a degree as a biomedical analyst or the equivalent, and it is meritorious if applicants have experience working with/handling various flow cytometry instruments such as: BD FACS ARIA III, Melody, Symphony S6, Discover S8, Fortessa, Symphony A1 and Cytek Aurora. Individuals from diverse or underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: 13 May, 2024

Research engineer at the Lab of Epigenetics and Chromatin Dynamics

The Douse Group, led by Dr. Christopher Douse and including an additional 6 employees, is now looking for a driven and experienced lab manager to support the lab as a whole. The research group conducts research on epigenetic mechanisms in brain development and degeneration and is currently working on a project funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, which aims to reveal general principles of how the epigenetic regulation of the repetitive genome affects human brain development and degeneration. 

The ideal candidate should have experience in viral vector production, molecular cloning, neural and/or stem cell culture, and nucleic acid and protein extractions and separations, Western blotting, qPCR methods, and be able to communicate in English and Swedish (for administrative purposes).

Application deadline: 24 May 2024

PhD position in germline stem cell development and fertility

The Gopal Group is seeking a doctoral student with an interest in extracellular biology and germline stem cells to elucidate how glycans and glycan binding molecules regulate germline stem cell development and fertility. The goal is to identify how protein bound and free carbohydrate chains and their interactors control stem cell fate and fertility. To decipher the basic signalling, the group employs Caenorhabditis elegans, an invertebrate with highly conserved signalling in germline stem cells, using 2D and 3D cell culture models for application-level studies. 

The duties of the applicant include planning and performing the experiments in the lab. The PhD student will collect data and participate in discussions with members of the lab. The project will involve learning novel biochemical, genetic, and gene modification tools such as CRISPR/Cas9, confocal microscopy and bioinformatics.

Candidates should have an MSc in biomedicine or similar, or equivalent knowledge acquired in Sweden or abroad, excellent oral and written proficiency in English, previous experience in research labs during degree projects, proven ability in thesis writing, and a good understanding of cell-molecular biology and a strong interest in extracellular biology and stem cells.

Individuals from diverse or underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: 24 May 2024  at 23:59 CET

Postdoctoral Fellow in Regenerative and Cancer Biology

The Leigh Group is currently seeking a curious and driven postdoctoral fellow with an interest in cancer biology, regenerative biology, 'omics data analysis, and CRISPR screens to join their team at Lund University. The position, generously funded by Cancerfonden, will include the application of both wet and dry lab approaches to study the cancer resistance mechanism inherent to salamanders. The project will make use of CRISPR combined with high throughout screening to identify the functional underpinnings of cancer resistance in salamanders. 

Individuals from diverse or underrepresented backgrounds as well as candidates with an interest in gaining experience in computational and/or experimental sciences are encouraged to apply. 

Application Deadline: 15 June 2024 at 23:59 CET
