Postdoctoral Research Opportunities. The MIMS Excellence by Choice Postdoctoral Programme in Molecular Infection Medicine at Umeå University, Sweden

The MIMS Excellence by Choice Postdoctoral Programme is supporting recruitment of excellent Postdoctoral Fellows to research fellowships in the highly interactive and multidisciplinary research environment for molecular infection medicine at Umeå University: The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) and Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR).

MIMS is the Swedish node of The Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine. MIMS and UCMR researchers combine a strong molecular infection biology programme with chemical and structural biology to clarify molecular mechanisms of microbial infections. We aim to recruit new postdoctoral scientists with competence and ideas that will strengthen the research environment and contribute to its renewal.

The MIMS Excellence by Choice Postdoctoral Programme is coordinated at MIMS in collaboration with Professor Emmanuelle Charpentier at the Department of Regulation in Infection Biology, Max Planck Institute of Infection Biology (soon to be established Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens)

The programme is open to all nationalities with a non-Swedish PhD degree in a field relevant for the programme. Features of the fellowships include:

  • Development of a project proposal forms the basis for recruitment
  • Participation in research networking activities within The Excellence by Choice Postdoctoral Programme
  • Access to MIMS-affiliated core facilities and technical platforms

The fellowships are full-time for 24 months.
