POST DOCTORAL Reserach Fellow A post-doctoral position is available at the Biotechnology Centre at the University of Oslo, UiO ( For further information contact Hilde Nilsen, Tel. +47 22840511, or e-mail

Norwegian Pay scale: 53-56 (NOK 383.000 – 403.700 per year, depending on qualifications)

Application Deadline: 29 September 2006

Your application should include CV, list of publications, a summary of past research and future research plans as the names and contact details of three references.

Please submit your application quoting the REF. NO: 06/11935 to: The Biotechnology Centre of Oslo, P.O.Box 1125 Blindern, N-0317 Oslo, Norway.

A 3 year position for a post-doctoral research fellow is available at the DNA damage response laboratory at BiO.

Our research aim is to understand how spontaneously generated DNA damage is sensed, signalled and repaired in metazoan organisms. We also seek to understand how accumulation of endogenously generated DNA damage affects cell physiology. A particular focus in our work is to elucidate the role of DNA repair enzymes in the activation of the signal transduction cascades that lead to activation of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in response to endogenously generated DNA damage. We use genetic, cell biological and biochemical approaches and C. elegans and human cell lines as model systems in our research.

We seek a highly motivated candidate with experience from studies of DNA repair, DNA damage response pathways, or extensive practical C.elegans experience to study responses to oxidative DNA damage in C. elegans. The project involves genetic studies in C.elegans, characterisation of mutant phenotypes with respect to mutagenesis, transcriptome analyses, and lifespan, RNAi screening, and extensive use of microscopy.

We seek a highly motivated candidate with a PhD in relevant disciplines with the ability to work independently and in teams. We have an international work environment and use English as working language. Candidates with practical experience with C.elegans will be preferred.


POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS at the Karolinska Institutet Dept. of Biosciences and Nutrition Model Systems Unit

Two postdoctoral fellowships are available in the laboratory of Thomas Bürglin. Research at the laboratory is focused on developmental biology of Caenorhabditis elegans,, primarily of the nervous system.

One research topic centers around the hedgehog-related genes and their function, the other research topic revolves around homeobox genes, which play fundamental roles as transcriptional regulators. The laboratory has developed 2-channel 4D microsocopy to follow live gene expression during C. elegans embryogenesis ( In combination with gene knock-outs and laser ablation, gene function can be studied at single cell resolution.

Applications are welcome from scientists with a good background in molecular biology. Experience with C. elegans or other genetic model systems is welcome, but not an absolute requirement. Good English communication skills essential. To qualify for the exchange fellowships, applicants cannot be of Swedish nationality, or have obtained their Ph.D. at a Swedish University.

The positions are initially available for two years. Please send application, CV , and letters of reference to:

Thomas Bürglin Dept. of Bioscienes and Nutrition Novum Halsovagen 7 SE-141 57 Huddinge Sweden or send email to: thomas DOT burglin AT biosci DOT ki DOT se
