The Deindl group is seeking a
Two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Molecular Biophysics
The Deindl group focuses on investigating the molecular mechanisms of protein machines in the regulation of gene expression using a highly multidisciplinary approach that combines single-molecule imaging with structural and biochemical approaches. We are part of the SciLifeLab ( and located at Uppsala University, in close proximity to beautiful Stockholm.

You will join our efforts, in the framework of an ERC Advanced Grant, to develop a new multiplexed method for the real-time visualization of the complex dynamics with which nucleic acid-interacting proteins interact with DNA or RNA molecules, as a function of their nucleotide sequence. This method enables a comprehensive profiling of the sequence dependence in fundamental genome-interacting processes.

We offer you to become part of a dynamic group and a stimulating multidisciplinary environment where you will closely interact with experts in biophysics, microscopy, biochemistry, and molecular biology.

Required qualifications
A PhD in biochemistry, biophysics, physics, bioinformatics, or another relevant discipline is required. To qualify for the fellowship stipend, you must have obtained your PhD no earlier than 6 years ago. Furthermore, you should have experience with next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics, and programming. Prior experience with machine learning-based data analysis is advantageous. You should be self-motivated, creative, and have an interest in basic research and method development. As the project requires collaboration with other researchers, you should have good social skills and an excellent ability to communicate in English.

The application should be written in English and include:
1. Short letter of motivation with a short description of your research interests, and why you feel you are a good match for the project.

2. CV, including a description of relevant skills and experiences, as well as a full publication list.

3. Names, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers for 3 referees. State their professional relation to you (e.g., PhD supervisor). Please do not include references in your application.

Starting date: as soon as possible or as otherwise agreed

Informal inquiries and applications should be sent to Martha Schattenhofer,, with subject header "Postdoc in Molecular Biophysics".
