In the laboratory we will use a combination of gut microbiota analyses, microbiota transplantations (FMT), state-of-the-art ex vivo mucus measurements, antimicrobial assays, as well as confocal and fluorescence microscopy. In addition, we will use dietary interventions in mice and humans and closely work with Norrlands University Hospital Umeå (NUS) to analyze relevant patient samples.
In addition to the specific requirements below, we are looking for self-motivated team members with strong interpersonal skills. Interested candidates, please consider the following open positions in the Schroeder lab:
Postdocs & PhD students
Currently there are no open positions
If you would like to join the lab with your own fellowship (MarieCurie, HFSP, EMBO etc.) please contact Björn to discuss.
Undergraduate students (Bachelor-/ Master level)
We are constantly looking for highly motivated and talented undergraduate students that are curious about the interaction between diet, gut microbiota and the intestinal mucosal immune system. Students that are interested in joining the lab (ideally 6 months), please contact Björn for more information and include a letter of motivation why you want to work with us (0.5-1 A4 page, including prior research experience), a CV and up to two reference contacts to enquire about opportunities in the lab.
Please contact us well in advance since our available student projects are quickly filled.
