A postdoc-position is available in the project ”Engineering 3D printed and knitted degradable scaffolds” financed by Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research.

We will in this project design porous, three-dimensional degradable scaffolds for soft tissue engineering. The scaffolds should combine pliability with mechanical rigidity with the aid of for example 3D printing.

The aim for this part in the project is to use the information we have around the possibilities and limitation of the processes, combine it with the properties of the tissue and three-dimensional scaffolds. The design process will integrate a biomechanical assessment of scaffolds using Representative Volume Element (RVE) simulations of the individual 3D designs. Specifically, such assessment aims at predicting macroscopic properties of 3D scaffolds to design biomechanics-compatible tissue implants. Material mechanics simulations will also cover the extrusion process of the polymer during the printing process.

Project home page: https://www.kth.se/che/divisions/polymer-technology/research/research-projects/assoc-prof-anna-fi/engineering-3d-printed-and-knitted-degradable-scaffolds-1.702318

Job description

A position for Advanced Data Analysis in Plasma Proteomics is available in the group of Associate Prof. Jochen Schwenk, located at SciLifeLab in Stockholm. The group conducts high throughput and multiplexed immunoassay analysis of plasma to explore biosignatures of health and diseases.

A successful candidate will be involved in multivariate data analysis and data integration conducted within interdisciplinary projects. The aims are to model the generated plasma biosignatures with clinical information as well as with other omics data (e.g. RNAseq, NGS). The aim is to improve our understanding of high dimensional data (big data) and create knowledge beyond identifying differentially abundant proteins. The task of a successful applicant will be to use modelling for multidimensional and network analysis, as well as methods of machine learning towards non-linear dimensionality reduction of the highly dimensional data. The projects will disentangle information for these complex data structures and provide novel opportunities for studying health and disease.

Qualifications

The applicant should hold a PhD (or Master’s Degree with 2+ years of experience) in biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, or of a related field. A PhD should be awarded less than 3 years before the deadline of the application. The applicant must have a strong background in integrative data analyses such as of omics data and a profound knowledge about biology. A keen interest in describing geno- or phenotypes through modelling approaches is of merit. Independent competence and in-depth knowledge in programming (e.g. R, Python, Pearl) and biostatistics with preferred experience in multivariate analysis, machine learning and modelling. A successful candidate should possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills (written and verbal), be motivated to work in a team and interdisciplinary projects.
