A postdoctoral position is available at the Institute of Biomedicine, Department of Pathology, in a research group studying etiology and pathogenesis of neuromuscular diseases. The research group has recently identified two new diseases of glycogen metabolism causing progressive muscle weakness and heart failure. These diseases are caused by recessive mutations in the genes encoding the E3-ubiquitin ligase RBCK1 and glycogenin-1, a primer for glycogen synthesis. Both these diseases show a remarkable storage of abnormal glycogen in heart and muscle in addition to various proteins.

Subject area
pathology and biochemistry

Specific subject description
The research concerns studies on human and mouse muscle tissue in glycogenin and RBCK1 deficiency caused by gene mutations that leads to storage of abnormal glycogen and proteins. The project aims at identifying the storage material to get insights in the pathogenesis by applying proteomic and biochemical studies, cell culturing and immunohistochemistry on material from affected humans and mouse models. Applicants must have good practical skills in mass spectrometry/proteomics/protein chemistry.

Job assignments
Own research under guidance as for a post-doc

Eligibility
An achieved doctoral degree is compulsory for a position as postdoctor at Göteborg University. The doctoral thesis shall be in a relevant area according to the specific position stated here. Since a position as postdoctor aims to give new holders of the doctorate the opportunity mainly to strengthen and develop their scholarly proficiency, we aim for those who have a doctoral degree not older than 3 years counting from last date of application.

Assessment
Applicants must have good practical and theoretical skills in mass spectrometry/proteomics/protein chemistry. Experience in studies on experimental mouse models is qualifying. Great emphasis is on interpersonal skills and ability to work independently.
