Disorders in immune system and lymphocyte function lead to inflammatory diseases e.g. rheumatoid arthritis and Type 1 Diabetes. Project will focus on studying the molecular mechanisms underlying immune mediated diseases aiming at enabling individualized treatment in the future.

Description of recruiting organization
Molecular Systems Immunology group aims at understanding the regulation of human immune system to predict, prevent and treat immune mediated disorders. We study epigenetic and transcriptional regulation of T cells and molecular mechanisms of immune mediated diseases such as Type 1 Diabetes.
Turku Centre for Biotechnology is a joint research institute of University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University. The mission of the Centre is to promote high quality research and training. The Centre has excellent state-of-the-art technology platforms and expertise in NGS, epigenomics, proteomics, computational biology and high-end cell imaging.

Qualifications
Successful candidates have:
·         A relevant doctor’s degree (postdoctoral researcher) or a relevant master’s degree (project researcher) e.g. in life sciences or in biomedicine
·         High level of motivation, self-initiative and independency
·         Excellent team work and communication skills in English (both oral and written)
·         First-rate molecular and cell biology knowledge and skills with a strong background in epigenetics.
·         Strong publication record in international journals (postdoctoral researcher) at least in one of the following areas: immunology, molecular and cellular biology, autoimmunity, genetics, epigenetics.

Application
The salary is in accordance with the University salary system (for teaching and research personnel) level 5 (postdoctoral researcher) where the work specific salary component is 2 865,30 €/month or  levels 3-4 (project researcher),  where the work specific salary component is 2 181,44-2 475,31 €/month. In addition, there is a share increase based on the personal performance, which is, at most, 46.3% of the base salary. The position starts at earliest on Feb 1st, 2018 (or as agreed). The positions are initially for two-three years. There is a trial period of four months.

The deadline for applications is Jan 15th, 2017. A link to the electronic application system can be found from the following link: www.utu.fi/careers  . Please include a CV, full publication list, list of selected publications and contact information for three references in your application. In addition postdoctoral researcher applicants should also enclose academic portfolio (http://www.utu.fi/en/university/come-work-with-us/Pages/Coming-to-Work-for-the-University.aspx). For further information on the positions please contact: Prof. Riitta Lahesmaa, e-mail: riitta.lahesmaa@btk.fi .

Expert in biodata analysis (master/doctor degree in a relevant subject) with a strong ICT background.
 
The major tasks are related to the management of data of the Blood Service Biobank (blood donors) and Hematological biobank (patients with hematological malignancies), and related scientific research. Position is open immediately and can be fulfilled till the end of year 2018 (or for 12 months) and may be renewed.
 
Skills needed: command of R and Python and experience and/or genuine interest in biomedical datamining. Salary: depends on experience.
 
The Finnish Red Cross Blood Service (FRCBS), a not-for profit organization, serves the blood product supply for entire Finland and is the sole blood bank in Finland. Our tasks include activities ranging from recruitment of blood donors, testing of donated blood, and the production and storage of blood products and selling them to hospitals. We are actively involved in cell and organ transplantation: we act as the Finnish hub for stem cell grafts and we do all clinical donor-patient compatibility tests for transplantation.  We also do scientific research within our sector, with the annual research budget of ~3 million euros. We have four scientific focus areas: blood donations and donors; extracellular vesicles of blood cells; whole genome histocompatibility; and novel cell therapy products and publish more than 30 peer-reviewed papers each year.
