Post-doctoral positions are available at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala, Sweden to investigate the influence of nuclear organization on gene transcription and genome integrity. Successful applicants will work in the group of Stefanie Rosa ( for an initial period of two years. Our group uses a combination of genomics, single molecule imaging and computer modelling to determine how the intrinsic physical properties of nuclear organization and epigenetic mechanisms regulate and constraints biological processes.

Department of Plant Biology

The department of Plant Biology is located in the recently built Uppsala BioCenter at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). The department focusses on plants, but other organisms such as virus, bacteria, fungi, insects, yeast cells and even human cells are also studied. The department belongs to the Linnean Centre Plant Science in Uppsala. Uppsala is a lively university city, conveniently located close to Stockholm (40 minutes by train) and Stockholm’s main international airport (20 minutes by train).



Candidates should have a PhD in molecular cell biology, plant developmental biology, plant genetics, genomics or related topics. Prior work with genetics, plants, transcriptomics, microscopy and molecular biology are assets. Experience with cell biology techniques and bioinformatics would be greatly valued. Creativity, motivation and drive are important personal characteristics as is excellent proficiency in English. Candidates should also have an ability to conduct independent research, take initiative, and interact with other scientists. A demonstration of previous scientific output is also highly desirable, such as a first author or joint-first author published paper.

Specific documents to include: (1) CV with full publication list, (2) a description of research experiences, (3) a letter of motivation and (4) contact information of two to three references. Please send your application to Informal inquiries are also welcome.
