A 4-year PhD Research Fellowship in molecular biology/genomics is available at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES), Department of Biosciences, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
The project will have emphasis on single-cell transcriptomics of immune cells. This project uses cutting-edge technology within molecular biology, modern high-throughput sequencing and bioinformatics. 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 and bioinformaticians in two interactive multidisciplinary centres, Centre for Immune Regulation (CIR) and Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES).
The applicant must have a Master’s degree (or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian Master’s degree) in molecular biology or genomics. Experience with immunology, RNA-seq, high-throughput sequencing or bioinformatics is considered an advantage.
