The University of Oslo is Norway's oldest and highest rated institution of research and education with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. Its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally esteemed research communities make UiO an important contributor to society.
Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) is a Centre of Excellence (CoE) based at the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo. CEES combines a broad spectrum of disciplines (population biology, genomics, statistics, mathematical modelling) to foster the concept of ecology as a driving force of evolution via selective processes, with a corresponding influence of evolutionary changes on ecology. CEES has over 160 members (Professors (20), postdocs/researchers (45), PhDs (25), Master's students (25) and technical and administrative staff) and many guest researchers. The members represent 30 nationalities and constitute a vibrant and creative research environment. CEES coordinate several international networks. The budget = 150 million NOK (about 50 externally funded research projects). CEES is chaired by Professor Nils Chr. Stenseth.Jobbnorge ID: 138901
A three-year post-doctoral fellowship position for a qualified candidate with background in comparative genomics is available at CEES, the Department of Biosciences (IBV), Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
Start date no later than 1 October, 2017. The 3-year position includes 10% obligatory duties at the Department of Biosciences (IBV). No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo.
The project is funded by UiO:Life Science as a part of the Convergence environment "Comparative immunology of fish and humans" (COMPARE). Convergence environments are interdisciplinary research groups that will aim to solve grand challenges related to health and environment. COMPARE is funded by UiO's interdisciplinary strategic area UiO:Life Science (uio.no/life-science) and lead by Professor Kjetill S Jakobsen.
The COMPARE Convergence environment is a collaboration med between Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES), Dep of Biosciences, Faculty of Mathematics and natural sciences, Centre for Immune Regulation, (CIR), Rikshospitalet, Institute of Clinical Medicine, the Faculty of Medicine and Centre for technology, innovation and cultural studies (TIK), the Faculty of social sciences.
The position will be affiliated to CEES, a national centre of excellence (CoE).
The laboratory work of this project will be carried out at CEES and CIR as well as at our collaborating partner at University of Sterling, UK. The bioinformatic analyses and the high throughput sequencing will be performed at CEES in close collaboration with the NSC.
Project descriptionThe candidate for this position will work with comparative genomics of fishes and humans - with an emphasis on the special immune system of codfishes. High throughput sequencing and analysis of such data will be central tasks. The project aims to understand the codfish immunology which is unique due to its complete lack of MHC class II molecules and CD4+ T cells. The successful applicant will work in close contact with other molecular biologists, cell biologists, immunologists and bioinformaticians at the two interactive multidisciplinary centres, CIR and CEES as well as researchers at IBV, Dept. of mathematics and Dept. of informatics. Both CIR and CEES are Centres of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway. The candidate will join two strong academic research environments.
