PhD-position within Biochemistry – Autophagy mechanisms:
One of the main interests of the group is a system that has been evaluated at the molecular and cellular level with a range of chemical, molecular and cell biological techniques concerns mechanism of autophagy. Autophagy plays an important role in physiology including development and ageing and has been associated with diverse human diseases, including cancer, cardiac hypertrophy, and pathogen infection.
The PhD student will focus on cell imaging, analysis of cellular phenotypes, protein expression and purification, biochemical and structural characterization. The project is funded by European Research Council (ERC) and Wallenberg Foundation. The project is interdisciplinary with strong collaborations across scientific disciplines.
