Post-doctoral position in Microbiology at the Cava lab

We offer a postdoctoral position for a Microbiologist at the Department of Molecular Biology at Umeå University, Sweden. The opening is temporary with a competitive salary for two years but can be extended and it is available immediately or as agreed.

The Department of Molecular Biology has about 200 employees. The department’s main tasks involve research, graduate education, and undergraduate education as well as interactions with the community. For more information, see:

The Cava lab at the Laboratory of Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) and the Department of Molecular Biology (Umeå University) is a multidisciplinary and stimulating research space that investigates bacterial cell wall biology and genetics at the interface between basic and clinical research. Our goal is to improve the inventory of players in cell wall biogenesis, remodeling, and regulation, characterize the function and interplay of known components, and evolve our work into quantitative studies and computational modeling. This research program has potential in the development of novel antimicrobial strategies to combat multidrug-resistant bacterial pathogens.
