Postdoctoral scholarship in electrochemical measurements of vesicle loading and trafficking

News: Feb 09, 2018

The Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Gothenburg, offers a postdoctoral scholarship in electrochemical measurements of vesicle loading and trafficking.

The scholarship holder will work on a project to a state-of-the-art set of quantification and imaging methods to study nanometer cellular vesicle loading, storage, and trafficking and to use this to search for a unified concept relating cellular degeneration and malfunction across various diseases. We are unique with our combined capabilities to measure the chemistry and structure of nanometer vesicular structures, both statically and dynamically, with nanoelectrochemistry, NanoSIMS, and stimulated emission depletion (STED) superresolution microscopy.

Dnr E 2018/93

Scholarship period: The scholarship covers a period of 24 months in total.

Preliminary start date: 2018-07-01

Supervisor/contact person: Andrew Ewing, +46 (0)761172293, andrewe@chem.gu.se
