The Biotechnology Centre of Oslo (BiO) is a centre for molecular 
biology, biotechnology, and bioinformatics within the University of 
Oslo, devoted to research and post-graduate training. The Centre has a 
common research focus on cellular signalling.

A 3 year position for a post-doctoral research fellow is available at 
the DNA damage response laboratory at BiO.

Our research aim is to understand how spontaneously generated DNA damage 
is sensed, signalled and repaired in metazoan organisms. We also seek to 
understand how accumulation of endogenously generated DNA damage affects 
cell physiology. A particular focus in our work is to elucidate the role 
of DNA repair enzymes in the activation of the signal transduction 
cascades that lead to activation of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in 
response to endogenously generated DNA damage. We use genetic, cell 
biological and biochemical approaches and C. elegans and human cell 
lines as model systems in our research.

We seek a highly motivated candidate with experience from studies of DNA 
repair, DNA damage response pathways, or extensive practical C.elegans 
experience to study responses to oxidative DNA damage in C. elegans. The 
project involves genetic studies in C.elegans, characterisation of 
mutant phenotypes with respect to mutagenesis, transcriptome analyses, 
and lifespan, RNAi screening, and extensive use of microscopy.

We seek a highly motivated candidate with a PhD in relevant disciplines 
with the ability to work independently and in teams. We have an 
international work environment and use English as working language. 
Candidates with practical experience with C.elegans will be preferred.
