We are looking for strong, motivated, intellectually curious, and diverse scientists to join our team. The Kasson group is recruiting postdoctoral fellows:
Postdoctoral fellow (experimental) studying viral entry mechanisms.
We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow studying viral infection via the endosomal pathway, focusing on influenza and other emerging viruses. We use single-virus optical methods to study viral infection mechanisms. Background in biophysical chemistry, quantitative virology, or endosomal cell biology is desired. An example of our recent work in this area is available at: doi.org/10.1101/2020.04.12.038109.
Key requirements are a PhD and scientific background in quantitative virology, quantitative cell biology and / or biophysical imaging, strong publication list compared to years of experience, successful demonstration of scientific knowledge, and ability to work with diverse teammates. Key skills for success will be viral and cell culture, biochemical isolation of viral components, advanced fluorescence imaging and quantitative analysis of results.
Contact kassonlab <at> gmail.com with a statement of interest and a CV. This position is based at Uppsala University.
Postdoctoral fellow (computational) studying virus-membrane interactions.
We are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow using molecular dynamics simulation to analyze viral protein-membrane interactions and mechanisms of infection. An example of our recent work in this area can be found in Pabis et al., PNAS 2020. As a postdoctoral fellow in our group, you will perform molecular dynamics simulations, develop and apply quantitative analysis methods, and interface closely with experimentalists in the group to test your predictions and incorporate experimental data. We feature close integration of computation and experiment, which makes this a special and powerful training environment.
Key requirements are a PhD and scientific background in biomolecular simulation, strong publication list compared to years of experience, scientific and intellectual curiosity, and ability to communicate clearly and work with diverse teammates.
