A 2 months part time researcher position is available within the research group led by Ali Harandi, Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Institute for Biomedicine, Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The focus of the research group is on vaccine evaluation, particularly on studying mode of action of vaccines and adjuvants.

Job assignments

The development of novel vaccines may be facilitated by a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of action of vaccines or their individual components as they pertain to their interaction with the immune system. The research group is currently involved in several projects with an overarching objective of improving our understanding of vaccine mechanisms of action. The research is done by employing cutting-edge transcriptomics and metabolomics technologies combined with conventional immunological methods.

The researcher will be responsible for systems biology analyses and interpretation of big datasets generated from whole genome transcriptomics and metabolomics analyses of biological samples retrieved from human and animals following vaccination.


A PhD in immunology or other relevant areas with postdoc experience and proven track record in vaccine research is required. Documented hands on experience and expertise with analysis of –omics (transcriptomics and metabolomics) big datasets, and previous experience of research in vaccine evaluation are highly desirable. The successful candidate will have excellent communicative skills particularly regarding scientific communication in English, a high degree of autonomy, a developed way of critical thinking, and documented ability to work successfully in a group.


Fixed-term employment 2 months, 20%. At the Institue of Biomedicin. First day of employment as agreed.
