The Hagström-Andersson research group (1-3), Division of Clinical Genetics, Lund University (4), is announcing a 24-month postdoctoral scholarship within high-resolution genomic studies of acute leukemia (experience in next-generation sequencing and bioinformatic analysis is a required) starting in early 2019.

Postdoctoral scholarship
We are looking for a skillful, ambitious and highly motivated postdoc to join the Hagström-Andersson´s research group, Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University. The overarching purpose of this project is to unravel the pathogenetic mechanisms involved in hematopoietic cell transformation using a combination of genomic approaches and murine genetic models. More specifically, by using high-resolution genomic studies, also at the single-cell level and in vivo models, our goal is to gain new knowledge on how leukemia arise and best should be treated. The postdoctoral project focus on high-resolution genomic studies of leukemia and experience in next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics analysis is required.

The Hagström-Andersson research group
Our research group performs cutting-edge research recently published in well renowned scientific journals (Nature Genetics, Nature Communications, and Leukemia). All equipment, including advanced cell sorters and next generation sequencing are available, as well as several in vivo experimental models, providing a solid base for our research.

Qualifications required
We are looking for a highly motivated scientist with a suitable research background. Applicants are expected to have recent first author publications in internationally renowned peer-reviewed journals. Previous experience from next-generation sequencing and bioinformatic analysis is required and previous work with cancer or hematopoietic malignancies is a strong merit. The applicant should not have been employed by Lund University within the last two years in order to be able to receive a scholarship. The PhD degree should not be more than three years old at the last day of applying. Applicants close to finishing up their PhD studies are also welcome to apply. Ability to work independently, as well as part of a team is essential.

How to apply
Candidates should provide an application referring to Dnr: V2018/2052 along with the following documents:

1) a motivation letter, maximum one page, outlining why you are applying for the fellowship. 2) a curriculum vitae
3) a list of publications
4) PhD Diploma
5) the contact information of at least two references including at least one recommendation letter

Send applications and questions to Anna Hagström-Andersson:

Last day of application is December 21, 2018
