We welcome applications for postdoctoral studies in integrative molecular epidemiology (colorectal cancer) at the Department of radiation sciences, Umeå University. The position is for two years, starting in autumn 2019, or upon other agreement.

Project description:

The research project aims to identify, distinguish between, and validate risk-predictive and diagnostic biomarkers of colorectal cancer. Combining blood-based biomarkers with refined risk profiling could allow more personalized colorectal cancer prevention and screening, through the identification of high-risk individuals for earlier or more frequent colonoscopy.

The project uses prediagnostic blood samples, including highly unique sets of repeated prediagnostic measures and pre- and postdiagnostic measures from the same patients. Analyses range from broad, omics technologies including untargeted metabolomics and targeted proteomics, to candidate biomarkers from the literature.

The successful applicant will be given the opportunity to develop independent research ideas, within the scope of the project, utilising resources from Swedish, European and international cohorts and consortia.

Eligibility and other qualifications required:

Candidates must hold a University degree equivalent to a European University PhD in statistics, epidemiology, bioinformatics, genetics or similar at the time of recruitment. In normal case the doctorate exam should have been acquired within three years prior the last day for application to this position, unless special circumstances exist. Special circumstances include absence due to illness, parental leave or clinical practice or appointments of trust in trade union organizations.

The candidate must have experience working with large datasets and be fluent in R/Bioconductor. A very good command of written and spoken English is required. Experience with statistical modelling using both continuous and binary outcomes, large sets of covariates, repeated measurements, and evaluation of prediction accuracy is a major advantage, as is a publication track record in molecular epidemiology.

We are looking for a highly motivated scientist who is quick to learn and has a demonstrated ability to work productively both independently and in a multidisciplinary team. Preference will be given to candidates with with superior analytic and communication skills. Please see link for examples of research from the group:

Project description

Energy levels is monitored to optimize cellular metabolism and physiology in all living cells. In plants is this regulated primarily by two kinases Target of Rapamycin (TOR) and Snf1 related kinase 1 (SnRK1) with opposing activities. The kinases operate at cellular level but regulate tissue specific processes as well as general physiology of the plant. The candidate will join a team focused on understanding the molecular details of these signaling pathways. We have taken a cell-culture based approach to be able to follow the signaling pathways minute for minute. We are using polysomal profiling to follow translational changes and biochemical approaches to identify factors important for these changes. The project is focused on understanding the translational gene regulation in response to changed metabolic status. We are studying translational changes using RiboSeq and based on these results, we will identify regulatory factors and characterize their mode of action.
