Post doc scholarship in Spatial Chemical Mapping of Normal and Transformed Tissue

Posted by , on 20 March 2023

Job type: Postdoc scholarship

Location: Lund, Sweden (and partly Gothenburg, Sweden)

Closing Date: 16 April 2023

We offer an opportunity for a postdoc candidate with any background within the medical sciences or natural sciences to learn from and with a transdisciplinary research team that works at the intersection between tumor biology, evolution, chemistry, and geology. There will be opportunity for the fellow to apply insights from any of these fields to the explorations of new ways to detect cancer early. In ongoing projects, the candidate may be able to identify and pursue questions pertaining to the chemical characteristics in tissues that are normal or undergoing transformation (cancer). The methods can include a variety of mass spectrometry tools, cell culture, tissue sectioning, mathematical mass balance modelling, and isotope geochemistry. The scholarship primarily aims to offer an opportunity for the curious and driven candidate to establish their own line of research. The scholarship offers an educational and exploratory purpose of the opportunity. A goal of the project is for a candidate to unravel new ways to think about and approach early cancer detection, with methods, tools, or thinking from any field within the medical or natural sciences.

Salary: 30.200 SEK, paid in advance for three months (scholarship is a grant and therefore not subjected to tax deduction, but does not entitle the recipient to compensation in case of illness, does not constitute a pensionable income, or does not entitle the recipient to vacation.
