Research Engineers to the Spatial Proteomics National Facility
School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health at KTH
KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The Spatial Proteomics facility at SciLifeLab in Stockholm works on different projects revolving around spatial proteomics for cells and tissues. The team consists of 7 people and is now looking for a substitute research engineer (until August 2024) with possible extension of additional 1 year. The focus is to offer highly multiplexed immunofluorescence using state of the art protocols and equipment. Currently we work with the platforms from Akoya Biosciences (Phenocyler Fusion) and Lunaphore (COMET and LabSat). In the role as research engineer you will primarily be working in the lab, but tasks also include quality control and some sample analysis as well as generating project reports. Much work will be to perform projects for external users, but the position also includes internal development and implementation of new protocols. Do you want to gain experience in a strong emerging spatial omics field and work with new technologies at the forefront of research? Do you want to contribute to drive cutting edge projects forward? Then apply for this position!
