(01) Fully Funded PhD Position

PhD position summary/title: PhD in surface and interface characterization of battery electrodes using operandi photoelectron spectroscopy.

Energy storage becomes increasingly important for developing a sustainable society, in which e.g. the use of fossil fuel needs to be reduced. Batteries can today replace the combustion engine in vehicles and in doing do it is an important component for electrification of the transport sector. Here it is important that the batteries are both safe and long-term stable. The redox reactions involved in energy conversion in batteries occur at the interface between the solid electrode and the electrolyte. Upon battery use oxidation occur at the anode and reduction occur at the cathode.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry

This project aims to fight bacterial resistance against existing antibiotics through development of metallo-beta-lactamase inhibitors. These substances will be given as part of combination therapies along with antibiotics to protect the latter against enzymatic cleavage. This interdisciplinary project will include the design of new drug candidates, development of synthetic routes for their preparation and evaluation of their binding to beta-lactamases using advanced NMR spectroscopic techniques. The studied compounds will be tested for activity against isolated beta-lactamases as well as against bacteria, in collaboration. The project will provide training in synthetic organic and medicinal chemistry as well as in advanced NMR spectroscopic techniques.

(03) Fully Funded PhD Position

PhD position summary/title: PhD-student position in structural biology of antibiotic resistance.

A large proportion of clinically used antibiotics act on bacterial translation. Clinical resistance mechanisms include efflux pumps, mutations or modifications of the target, degradation or modification of the drug and factor-assisted protection of protein synthesis. There are few examples of factor-assisted rescue and they are mostly poorly understood. The aim of this project is to clarify the structural and mechanistic details of such mechanisms, for example FusB-mediated resistance to fusidic acid (FA). The project will include single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) as well as other methods in structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics and will involve collaboration with the group of Magnus Johansson

(04) Fully Funded PhD Position

PhD position summary/title: PhD position – Chromosomal hybrids: A Source of Globally-Spread Antibiotic Resistant Pathogens.

The Hughes research group at IMBIM, Uppsala University, is seeking a highly motivated candidate to pursue PhD studies into the genetic basis of antibiotic resistance. The research group investigates bacterial chromosome organization and mechanisms of evolution of resistance to antibiotics. Recent research suggests that the formation of chromosomal hybrids has contributed to the creation of globally widespread virulent and antibiotic resistant bacterial pathogens. The mechanisms of hybrid formation, factors that influence their rates of formation, and the global prevalence of strains with hybrid chromosomes among clinical isolates are currently unknown. The candidate will develop experimental model systems to study the mechanisms and rates of formation of hybrid chromosomes in bacteria, use whole genome sequence analysis to study the genetic architecture of hybrid strains, and apply bioinformatic analysis to evaluate the prevalence of hybrid strains among clinical isolates. The project aims to clarify the factors that promote or constrain hybrid formation using a combined bioinformatic and experimental approach

(05) Fully Funded PhD Position

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Medical Bacteriology – focusing on bacterial biofilms and antibiotic resistance.

The position is within the research group of Linus Sandegren at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology. The focus of the research group is on fundamental aspects of antibiotic resistance evolution and how resistance plasmids are maintained and disseminated between pathogenic bacteria and serve as platforms for evolution of antibiotic resistance. This PhD position is focused on how bacterial biofilm formation affects antibiotic resistance development and spread of resistance plasmids. In the proposed projects we will study how newly identified mutations affecting K. pneumoniae biofilm formation affect bacterial susceptibility to antibiotics, how different antibiotics and antibiotic concentrations affect biofilm formation, and how biofilms affect the evolution and spread of antibiotic resistance. We will use this knowledge to design and test antibiotic combination treatments with better effects against biofilms. The project involves collaboration with researchers at Uppsala University hospital.

(09) Fully Funded PhD Position

PhD position summary/title: PhD student position in experimental nanoelectronics and spintronics.

 Electrons possess a magnetic property called ‘spin’ that can be Up or Down. Spin-polarized electrons or spins form the basis for spintronics that enabled ultrahigh-density magnetic memory storage and precision sensing, thereby revolutionizing the information technology age. Over the past decade, the advent of 2D materials brought a fresh stimulus for spintronics. This project aims to use the spin of electrons to realize efficient spin devices using 2D materials and advance towards complex spin integrated circuits. The project involves advanced nanofabrication in state-of-the-art cleanroom facilities at Ångström Laboratory, and precision measurements utilize a number of sophisticated techniques to characterize the devices’ 2D material heterostructures.

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in the palaeoenvironment of early humans in Central Asia.

Central Asia is a key route for ancient human expansion out of Africa with early human migrants leaving behind stone tools in thick wind-blown dust (loess) deposits in Tajikistan, deposited over the last 2-3 million years. However, much remains unknown about the timing and environmental context associated with the first presence of modern humans and ancient hominins in Central Asia.

This PhD position is part of an exciting cross-disciplinary project, involving scientists from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Russia and Tajikistan, that will answer questions such as when did humans arrive in Central Asia and what was the environment and climate like at the time.

About  Uppsala University, Sweden –Official Website

Uppsala University  is a research university in Uppsala, Sweden. Founded in 1477, it is the oldest university in Sweden and all of the Nordic countries still in operation. It has ranked among the world’s 100 best universities in several high-profile international rankings during recent years. The university uses “Gratiae veritas naturae” as its motto and embraces natural sciences.

The university rose to pronounced significance during the rise of Sweden as a great power at the end of the 16th century and was then given a relative financial stability with the large donation of King Gustavus Adolphus in the early 17th century. Uppsala also has an important historical place in Swedish national culture, identity and for the Swedish establishment: in historiography, literature, politics, and music. Many aspects of Swedish academic culture in general, such as the white student cap, originated in Uppsala. It shares some peculiarities, such as the student nation system, with Lund University and the University of Helsinki.

Uppsala belongs to the Coimbra Group of European universities and to the Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities. The university has nine faculties distributed over three “disciplinary domains”. It has about 44,000 registered students and 2,300 doctoral students. It has a teaching staff of roughly 1,800 (part-time and full-time) out of a total of 6,900 employees. Twenty-eight per cent of the 716 professors at the university are women. Of its turnover of SEK 6.6 billion (approx. USD 775 million) in 2016, 29% was spent on education at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, while 70% was spent on research and research programs.

Architecturally, Uppsala University has traditionally had a strong presence in Fjärdingen, the neighbourhood around the cathedral on the western side of the River Fyris. Despite some more contemporary building developments further away from the centre, Uppsala’s historic centre continues to be dominated by the presence of the university.
