… interested in joining the lab?

We always seek motivated postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and Master students who are passionate about fundamental biological questions and would like to work in a young and international research team. We welcome applications from candidates with a background in microbiology, genetics, cell biology or biochemistry, but also other disciplines.


We are currently searching for postdoctoral researchers to join our lab. Candidates are expected to have a strong background in microbiology / infection biology, cell biology, genetics or biochemistry. Experience in live-cell imaging techniques, deep sequencing or proteomics approaches are an asset, but not a must.
Although funding is currently available, prospective postdocs are strongly encouraged to apply for fellowships. Swedish foundations providing postdoctoral fellowships include the Wenner-Gren foundation (deadline in October) or the Carl Tryggers foundation (deadline in May). Other funding sources for postdocs include EMBO LTF and Marie-Curie fellowships.
If you are interested in a postdoc position in our lab, please inquire by sending an email including CV and a letter of motivation stating your research interests to kristina.jonas@su.se.

PhD students

We always welcome applications from students interested in pursuing a PhD project in our lab. PhD students are usually part of the graduate program of the Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute, at Stockholm University, which leads to a PhD in Molecular Biosciences. Please visit the graduate program’s webpage for further information.
PhD students will have the opportunity to learn how to dissect molecular mechanisms of essential cellular processes by using multi-disciplinary approaches. Candidates are expected to be highly motivated and to have a keen interest in fundamental biological questions. Experience in microbiology research is beneficial, but not required.
Please contact Kristina Jonas if you are interested in a PhD project in the lab.

Master students

We have a range of interesting projects for Bachelor and Master students. The projects will focus on understanding bacterial cell cycle regulation. Techniques used in our lab span from genetics, cell biology and biochemistry to modern live-cell imaging and high-throughput sequencing and proteomics approaches. Please contact Kristina Jonas to receive more detailed information about available projects.

Student assistants, Summer Jobs etc.

If you are interested in working in the lab as a student assistant (e.g. for a summer job) send an e-mail to kristina.jonas@su.se, or just drop by our lab to have a chat.
