(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc summary/title: Researcher position in Statistics/Pharmacometrics
The project involves establishing longitudinal models based on data from clinical trials and observational studies. Several applications concern data from patients with rare diseases and the project aims to develop powerful and robust methods to assess therapy effects in clinical studies with small patient populations. The investigations will include models and methods in the range between standard analyzes (e.g., mixed models for repeated measurements) to mechanistically based pharmacometric models (typically non-linear mixed effects models). Aspects such as causal inference and definition of estimates will be included in the project. The projects are run in collaboration with medical and statistical research groups in both academia and industry in Europe.

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc summary/title: Researcher in population genomics
Until recently tree breeding in Scandinavia had relied on two species, Scots pine and Norway spruce. There is today a strong will to increase the number of species that are genetically improved and birch is one of the main species of interest. Within the framework of a newly funded center of competence we are currently building the tools to implement genomic selection in birch. Within this framework we have now resequenced the full genome around 600 birch trees along two parallel lines in Sweden as well as in populations across Europe and in sibling species, mainly Betula pubescens. The candidate will help with the population genetic analysis of these data and focus more specifically on the Distribution of Fitness Effects and on the estimation of the deleterious mutations. While the project focuses on the diploid species Betula pendula, there will also be also possibility to extend the analyses to the polyploid species, Betula pubescens.

Postdoc summary/title: Postdoc position in developing zero-cobalt layered cathodes for sustainable lithium ion batteries in future electric automotive
More specific, the focus of the investigations will be on the assessment of electrochemical performance, sustainability and cost effectiveness of zero-Co cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles. In practice, this means for example to cycle the batteries under specified conditions, and thereafter analyze the cell components with experimental methods. These will rely on electrochemistry, diffraction, and spectroscopy, but also other methods and experiments at synchrotron facilities may be applicable. We will also focus on the development of Co substitutes in the layered cathodes to obtain an understanding of the best usage strategy of the zero-Co layered oxides from the batteries while they are being charged and discharged in electric vehicles. The project will entail characterizing materials, electrode preparation, cell assembly, conducting electrochemical testing and measurements of structures, morphology and interfaces as well as thermal stability. The postdoc is expected to perform high quality research, with the aim of disseminating resulting works through high impact peer-reviewed journals or at national and international conferences. Strong collaboration with colleagues in academia and industry as well as other national and international project partners will be expected.

Postdoc summary/title: Postdoctoral position at ALMEDA
The ALMEDA (African Literary Metadata) project is a five-year research project, funded by a European Research Council. ALMEDA is recruiting a postdoctor with expertise in East and/or Central African literature. Literary circulation across sub-Saharan African is dominated by informal, ephemeral and not-for-profit literary and oratory cultural forms, such as spoken-word poetry, street theatre, self-published writing and a variety of online genres. These informal African literatures are rarely catalogued and therefore exist outside of any structured metadata system. The consequence is that formally published English and French African novels are hyper-visible globally, while the rich literary and oratory cultures of the continent itself are caught in a perpetual state of structural ephemerality. The ALMEDA project addresses this problem in three ways. First, by providing a history of literary metadata on the African continent, the project will provide a diachronic understanding of how colonial cataloguing systems came to construct the idea of the ‘literary work’ as book-based and thus dismissive of Africa’s oral cultures. Secondly, ALMEDA aims to develop a metadata scheme specifically aimed at rethinking the very idea of the literary from a history of oral culture. This scheme, which is predominantly aimed at accurately creating metadata for contemporary informal literary materials, will be multilingual, which will enable a unique descriptive model that allows African-language genres to inhabit their own categories, rather than having to be forced into European literary ontologies. Thirdly, the project will develop a linked open metadata database to make these literatures searchable and their records enduring. The ALMEDA research team includes experts in African literature, African library science and digital humanities/information science. A number of case-study researchers and fellows will also be attached to the project. As such, the project operates as a team-based research environment in which scholars and experts will be addressing the key questions of the research project together. Contact project PI Ashleigh Harris for more detailed information on ALMEDA.

(16) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc summary/title: Postdoctoral position in Molecular Systems Biology
As a postdoctoral fellow in molecular systems biology, you will develop a new method for mapping basic processes in bacteria using DNA microscopy (Weinstein et al. Cell 2019). With this method, intracellular structures can be visualized through hybridization with unique nucleotide probes, concatenation, sequencing, and finally image reconstruction based on molecular proximity. The imaging is optics-free but analytically demanding; the project thus includes some computational science and possibly AI-based analysis methods. The fellowship is a full-time research position with teaching opportunities if you are interested. You are expected to run your project independently and you have the freedom to develop your ideas within the overall scope of the research plan. We offer a stimulating interdisciplinary environment where you will work closely with experts in microbiology, biophysics, microscopy, image analysis, and molecular biology.

About Uppsala University, Sweden –Official Website
Uppsala University is a research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Sweden and all of the Nordic countries still in operation. It has ranked among the world’s 100 best universities in several high-profile international rankings during recent years. The university uses “Gratiae veritas naturae” as its motto and embraces natural sciences.
The university rose to pronounced significance during the rise of Sweden as a great power at the end of the 16th century and was then given a relative financial stability with the large donation of King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 17th century. Uppsala also has an important historical place in Swedish national culture, identity and for the Swedish establishment: in historiography, literature, politics, and music. Many aspects of Swedish academic culture in general, such as the white student cap, originated in Uppsala. It shares some peculiarities, such as the student nation system, with Lund University and the University of Helsinki.
Uppsala belongs to the Coimbra Group of European universities and to the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities. The university has nine faculties distributed over three “disciplinary domains”. It has about 44,000 registered students and 2,300 doctoral students. It has a teaching staff of roughly 1,800 (part-time and full-time) out of a total of 6,900 employees. Twenty-eight per cent of the 716 professors at the university are women. Of its turnover of SEK 6.6 billion (approx. USD 775 million) in 2016, 29% was spent on education at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, while 70% was spent on research and research programs.
Architecturally, Uppsala University has traditionally had a strong presence in Fjärdingen, the neighbourhood around the cathedral on the western side of the River Fyris. Despite some more contemporary building developments further away from the centre, Uppsala’s historic centre continues to be dominated by the presence of the university.
