The Perinatal laboratory is located at Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Sahlgrenska Academy, Sahlgrenska University Hospital/Östra. The Perinatal laboratory and research group is led by Professor Bo Jacobsson.

Project title: Familial aggregation of gestational duration

Job assignments

The PhD education in Medical Science comprises carrying out a scientific project and completing at least 30 credits of courses at third-cycle level. The doctoral student must also write a scientific compilation thesis or monograph corresponding to at least 120 credits. For more information about third-cycle studies at Sahlgrenska Academy, see https://medarbetarportalen.gu.se/sahlgrenskaakademin/forskarutbildning/languageId=100001

Project: Preterm delivery, defined as delivery before 37th completed weeks of gestation, is the leading cause of perinatal mortality worldwide. While medical progress has improved the survival of preterm born babies, we still lack effective strategies preventing preterm delivery. The main obstacle is a vague understanding of the biological mechanisms involved in preterm parturition. Heritability analysis provided the evidence for genetic contribution to population variability, and gave promises for successful genetic-variant identification. However, findings of genetic analyses have not provided a complete explanation for preterm delivery aetiology. The dissonance between the evidence of heritability and genetic studies has been enclosed under the term of missing heritability.

This project aims to provide insights about the contribution of genetic factors to pregnancy duration, and consequently contribute to the debate on missing heritability. An alternative to heritability analysis, are the analysis of family aggregation, which might provide insights about possible mode of inheritance. Here, we propose to study the relationship between the duration of gestation within the pregnancies of a mother. The contribution of primiparity, interpregnancy interval, parental gestational ages at birth, on this relationship will be considered. We plan to find optimal models to the nature of our data and the outlined problem.

In this project, we want to get insight into preterm delivery through the exploration of big epidemiological data. Therefore, we are looking for a PhD student with experience in epidemiology, mathematic and a strong interest in statistic. You are a driven and creative individual with the ability to learn statistical concepts independently. Additionally, we see that you have experience in using R software (other languages such as JavaScript, SQL are an advantage). It is a merit if you have experience of ”dry-lab” work. “Wet lab” experience is not a merit in this context. You will be working with big epidemiological and genetic dataset and programming and documented experience from this is an advantage. The research group is international, therefore, you have proficiency in English and Swedish in speech and writing is desirable. 

Third-cycle studies are equivalent to four year full-time and lead to a Degree of Doctor. Those appointed to doctoral studentships shall primarily devote themselves to their studies. Those appointed to doctoral studentships may, however, work to a limited extent with educational tasks, research and administration (departmental duties). Before a PhD degree has been awarded, duties of this kind may not comprise more than 20 per cent of a full-time post.

Eligibility

To be eligible for third-cycle studies, the applicant must meet both the general and specific entry requirements.

A person meets the general entry requirements for third-cycle studies if he or she:
1. has been awarded a second-cycle qualification
2. has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second-cycle, or
3. has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad

A person meets the specific entry requirements for third-cycle studies in Medical Science if he or she: has successfully completed the English B/6 course or is considered to have acquired equivalent knowledge through previous studies

Assessment

In selecting between applicants who meet the general and specific entry requirements, their ability to benefit from third-cycle studies shall be taken into account. The assessment shall attach particular importance to documented qualifications for:
– specific knowledge and skills within the subject area and related research fields
– experience of scientific theory and relevant research methodology
– scientific analysis and presentation verified through thesis, degree project, scientific journals or the like.

Employment

After admission to third-cycle studies you will be appointed to doctoral studentship. Regulations for employment of doctoral students are given in SFS 1993:100. The initial appointment may apply for no longer than one year. An appointment may be renewed for no more than two years at a time. A person may be appointed to a doctoral studentship for a total of eight years. The total employment period may, however, not exceed the time corresponding to full-time third-cycle study for four years.

Location: Sahlgrenska Academy, Institute of Clinical Sciences, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Extent: 100%. First day of employment: as agreed.

Post doctoral position in Sociology

Ref PAR 2020/1096

The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 49 000 students and 6 400 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

The Department of Sociology and Work Science has over 100 employees, teachers, researchers, PhD-students and administrative staff. The department carries out research, education and collaboration in a number of areas. There is research on labor, employment, welfare, social movements, sustainable development, environmental policy, sociology of law and social control.

The position is advertised as part of the ongoing research project Urban Gardens as Meeting Places in Gothenburg, Budapest and Bucharest: Building Collaborative Capacity for Sustainability in Different Socio-economic Contexts.

Subject area

Sociology

Research area description

Urban gardening is increasingly popular in cities around the world. Motives can vary, from relaxing leisure activities to necessary food supplies. The role of urban gardening is determined, among other things, by the economic position of cities, and its inhabitants, but how it develops is also affected by political factors and the decisions of local authorities. Gardening can be initiated and developed from the bottom up, spontaneously and demand-driven, or be part of local decision-makers’ conscious plan for an attractive living environment. How gardening opportunities are shaped and gardens and cultivation sites are designed affects which practices and social relationships are developed. This project examines how different forms of cultivation in an urban environment contribute to both social and environmental sustainability.

Job assignments

The research tasks mainly consist of contributing with qualitative research and analysis work with knowledge on how overall planning and design of gardens can contribute to social and environmental sustainability by initiating and supporting collaborative processes. The project is a comparative study of cities from different positions in the global economic system and with different forms of governance of the city (Gothenburg, Budapest and Bucharest). In addition, comparisons between gardening projects in different parts of the city will be made in each city. Teaching and supervision can be included in work assignments, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours. The holder of the position must carry out research (analysis work and publication, independently and in collaboration) that makes a substantial contribution to the research area described above. The holder of the employment is expected to perform most of his duties on site in Gothenburg, but the project group is international.

Eligibility

Qualified to be employed as a postdoctor is the person who holds a Swedish doctoral degree or equivalent foreign degree. In the first instance, it should be considered for employment that graduated a maximum of three years before the end of the application period and not been employed as a postdoctoral student for more than a year in the same or nearby subject area at the University of Gothenburg. Even those who have graduated earlier may be considered for special reasons (eg sick leave, certain trust assignments, parental leave or similar circumstances). If special reasons are cited, these must be substantiated in the application. The applicant shall have a doctoral degree in sociology. The doctoral degree must be completed before the last application date.

Assessment 

Scientific competence are of greatest importance. This is documented primarily through the doctoral dissertation and other cited publications. International peer-review publishing is an advantage. Good ability to independently collect and process qualitative data and write scientific publications is a requirement. Knowledge of urban cultivation is an advantage, but so is segregation and inequality. Good knowledge of English and Swedish is a requirement.

Employment

The employment is a fixed term-employment for two years, fulltime, placed at the Department of Sociology and Work Science. First day of employment as agreed.

Appointment procedure

In addition to expert review, interviews and referral may be included in the selection process

At the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, at the Sahlgrenska Academy, we conduct research and education covering a wide range of knowledge areas. The institute comprises five different departments: Clinical Neuroscience, Health and Rehabilitation, Pharmacology, Physiology and Psychiatry and Neurochemistry.

The Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, invites applications for a postdoctoral position at the Department of Physiology. 

We are seeking a motivated and talented post-doctoral researcher for driving an innovative research project within the area of regeneration focusing on the role of the regenerative cells of the human kidney and their significance for normal kidney function and disease development. The candidate will have a key role in the project. The project will involve bioinformatical investigation of large cohorts as well as a broad cellular and molecular techniques applied to the increasing the understanding of kidney regeneration and the nature of renal regenerative cells.

The candidate will be employed at the Institute for Neuroscience and Physiology and will be included in the Wallenberg Centre for Molecular and Translational Medicine (WCMTM https://www.gu.se/en/molecular-translational-medicine). The candidate will be a part of a large collaboration between Professor Jenny Nyström and Professor Martin Johansson at the Institute of Biomedicine at University of Gothenburg together with Professor Pernille B Laerkegaard Hansen, Dr Kevin Woollard and Dr Lisa Buvall at AstraZeneca in Mölndal and Cambridge, UK. The project team has expertise in renal regeneration and collaborates with world leading experts in the field. The candidate will be able to utilize this network within the project. The current project has a clear translational focus and the candidate will have access to all environments and techniques available at the collaborative partner locations.

Subject area

Medical sciences: kidney physiology and pathology with a focus on kidney regeneration.

Subject area description

The global incidence of kidney disease is rapidly increasing. Regardless of initiating event, kidney disease may result in death of kidney cells and if unchecked this process ends in acute or chronic kidney disease. We currently lack specific treatments for most forms of kidney disease. Established kidney disease is always the result of an imbalance between pathological mechanisms and the renal capacity for regeneration. Even though the number of kidney diseases is vast, the injury response of the kidney is relatively homogenous. In a healthy kidney very few cells are mitotically active. Following injury however, especially the tubular cells display a robust regenerative response. The nature of the regenerating cells has not been unequivocally established however. The traditional view is that randomly surviving cells dedifferentiate, proliferate and regenerate the injured epithelium. More recently an alternative hypothesis has been suggested favoring a stem or progenitor cell pool localized to the kidney, that drives regeneration. This project aims at further characterization of the regenerative cells of the kidney thereby enabling novel treatment principles for kidney disease.

Job assignments

The candidate will conduct in-depth bioinformatic analysis of published patient cohorts and animal model data and data from in-house activities to properly characterize kidney progenitors. The candidate will then use a broad repertoire of cell and molecular biological techniques such as e.g. cell culture, explants, transfection and expression systems to validate novel progenitors discovered in silico.

Eligibility

To qualify as a postdoctoral researcher the applicant should hold a PhD in a relevant subject. Since postdoctoral constitutes a qualifying appointment for junior researchers, we aim to target those who have a doctoral degree not older than 3 years from the application deadline.

Assessment

The applicant must have a PhD degree and is expected to have a scientific productivity of high quality with publications as first authors in internationally renowned journals. The applicant must have an extensive background in bioinformatics and/or cell and molecular biology expertise in the field of regeneration. Experience in in-vivo studies is an advantage. Previous research in experimental renal medicine, especially regeneration, is a merit. The applicant is expected to plan, conduct and analyze experiments in an independent manner and to actively contribute scientifically to the group and to coordinate the project between the different partners. The candidate must have excellent oral and written communication skills in English and be prepared to travel between the different sites where the research groups are located. Great emphasis will be placed in personal suitability.

Employment

The employment is limited (temporary) for 24 months, 100% of full-time and is placed at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology. Starting date; as soon as possible or as agreed.

Mer information om Institutionen för Marina Vetenskaper finns på www.marine.gu.se.

Project description                                  

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student in marine chemical ecology. Chemical sensing is the key sensory modality in the ocean but we still know very little about it in marine plankton. What compounds are the signals? How can they be recognized and interpreted? How do they transmit between organisms? How do organisms and ecosystems respond? This project is centred around novel chemical alarm-signals between marine plankton, a group of lipids discovered in our lab named copepodamides. Phytoplankton sense copepodamides and respond with defensive traits such as toxin production, altered swimming behaviour, increased bioluminescence. The project will be tuned to the interest and background of the successful candidate. You could e.g. focus on the chemical aspects (structure elucidation of hereto unknown signalling molecules, field measurements etc), the biological (the effect of copepodamide signalling in cells, between organisms, and on the ecosystem level), or the physical (how do signalling molecules spread at the turbulent microscale?). Irrespectively, you are likely to work with different zooplankton and phytoplankton organisms and be involved in fieldwork on marine stations and research ships. You will also have access to a fully equipped chemical ecology lab including culture facilities and GC/LC-MS instruments.

Experience with motion analysis, image analysis, analytical chemistry, mass spectrometry, scientific writing, plankton ecology, social skills, and programming are meriting. The successful applicant will be self-motivated, solution oriented, curious and passionate about science. You should have a relevant exam in biology, chemistry, physics, or equivalent. We are a transdisciplinary group and welcome applicants from biology, chemistry and physics. The project is 50% funded by the Swedish research council (VR), and 50% departmental funded which allows for some more degrees of freedom than fully externally funded projects. Interested? Check out our homepage http://pelagial.se/, and feel free to contact us for further information.
