Open postdoctoral researcher position (synthetic biology, antibody technology, antibody drug development) at the University of Helsinki

We are looking for a second postdoctoral researcher to join our team. The projects involve – apart from enthusiasm and dedication – the setup of novel methods and requires knowledge and experience in the areas of molecular biology (cloning, mutagenesis), E. coli genetics, protein analysis (Western, IP, ELISA), protein purification (basics) and cell culture (transfection, cell line establishment). Knowledge in bioinformatics will be advantageous. Project goals include improvements of in-vitro antibody generation technologies and the generation of antibodies. Details will be discussed in the job interview.

The postdoctoral position is for two years and will start during spring 2017 with a probation period. The salary is based on the standard University of Helsinki salary system. Applications are considered as soon as they arrive and there is no fixed closing date since before we can hire, we have to relocate our lab in-house to have more lab space, which will happen sometime during beginning of 2017.

How to apply?

If you are interested, please send your application including CV, motivation letter and names of two people who would be willing to provide references with contact information as a single pdf-document to
michael@jeltsch.org with a notification ”MSc position”/”PhD position”/”Postdoc position” in the subject line of the mail. Please also attach or link to a short (maximally 2 minutes long) video, in which you explain, why you want to join our lab and why you are the candidate that we should chose. Please follow these instructions as I do not guarantee to answer applications that don’t fulfill these formal requirements.
