The research at the division focuses on developing new methods and molecular tools for biological research using novel materials and bioengineering. Examples include peptide decorated polymer scaffolds, DNA origami and microfluidic devices. The questions we focus on are cell-signalling and tissue development and regeneration. We are currently looking for supporting personnel to continue to develop the division.

The duities include assisting the work in the division both in the lab and in administrative tasks. These taks include but are not limited to: taking care of chemical inventory, making sure lab safety is adhered to in the division, assisting work in the lab, organizing inventory and data on lab materials (for example plasmids and DNA libraries), keeping track of some purchases deliveries and invoicing, assisting with administrative tasks, organization of visits and events.

Applicants should be able to take initiative on their own to best support the research and have collaborative and social skills as well as being a rigorous co-worker.
