Chief Technology Officer
Ph.D. job offer: Deploy RRMs for in-cell analytics.
This is a 4-year PhD-student position focusing on synthetic biology, i.e. living systems (bacterium) where non-natural behavior has been introduced. The primary host is Ridgeview Instruments AB in collaboration with Uppsala University. Our efforts target RNA Recognition Motifs where computational and experimental research join forces to understand cellular control. The PhD work includes method development to use LigandTracer for bacterial cells for monitoring and quantifying induced behavior and apply the methods on molecular targets within the RNAct consortium.
When evaluating candidates for this position, special weight will be given to earlier experience in:
(a) Culturing and transfection of bacteria
(b) Molecular interaction analysis
Strong motivation, willingness to cooperate with the RNAct partners and to travel within the EU, the capacity to work independently, and desire to network and communicate are important qualities. The applicant must be proficient in spoken and written English. In filling this position Ridgeview aims to recruit the person who, in the combined evaluation of competence, skills and documented qualifications, is judged most suitable to carry out and develop the work-in-hand and to contribute to a positive development of the company.
