Researcher (Protein Scientist), Mammalian Protein Expression core facility
Protein Production Sweden (PPS) is a new national research infrastructure with financing from the Swedish Research Council, with the aim of co-ordinating and performing the production of proteins in different expression systems for Swedish researchers. The co-ordination of activities at five universities in Sweden will lead to an increased availability and competence within protein production, and will ensure the production of proteins with high quality. The Mammalian Protein Expression (MPE) core facility at the Sahlgrenska Academy is a part of PPS with focus on the production of proteins and glycoproteins in mammalian cells.
MPE is a resource center offering research services within the production and purification of recombinant proteins from mammalian cells. MPE is one of several advanced research infrastructures at the Sahlgrenska Academy (www.cf.gu.se), which provide advanced technical equipment and qualified competence in several disciplines. MPE is now looking for an experienced protein scientist who will aid in the development of MPE’s capabilities within specific areas of protein and glycoprotein production, purification and characterization, as well as contribute to the national collaboration within PPS.
A key focus for this position is to run and be responsible for protein production projects for different researchers. The work is lab-based and involves culture and transfection of mammalian cells, protein purification, characterization and quality control. This includes planning and performance of different types of mammalian cell cultures, including large- and small-scale transfections and bioreactor cultures, purification of produced proteins and various protein analyses. Some molecular biology work and cloning of cells may occasionally be involved in the tasks.
