MIIC Postdoctoral program
Medical inflammation and Infection Center postdoc program
MIIC at Linköping University is seeking Postdoctoral Fellows; Linköping Sweden
Linköping University is one of Sweden’s six large universities, currently enrolling 32 000 students. The university recently launched the research Centre “Medical inflammation and infection Center” (MIIC), involving some 30 independent research groups from the Faculty of Medicine. MIIC research focus is on infections and inflammatory conditions, which are major concerns for human health. MIICs overall goal is to perform high quality basic and clinical research that provide new research findings that can contribute to improve human health on a national and global level.
Our research center MIIC is now seeking Postdoctoral Fellows (2 years) within several of the MIICs research areas, described below with links to MIIC homepage and the specific group leader.
Please contact the below group leader/s for further information and to submit your CV and a letter-of-intent.
Deadline: July 20th 2020

Lennart Svensson: Study of intestinal viral infection in human and mice stem cell-derived enteroids with the focus on communication between different cell types such as enterocytes, enterochromaffin cells, enteric glial cells, and nerves, in vitro and ex vivo.
Maria Jenmalm: Can pre-and postnatal Lactobacillus reuteri and ω-3 PUFA supplementation prevent allergy development by influencing infant immunity?
Jorma Hinkula: Development of nanovaccines and immunomonitoring as advanced next generation respiratory virus vaccination.
Åsa Keita: Study the importance of enteric glial cells (EGC) and their roles in intestinal barrier function and interaction with immune cells, nerves and bacteria in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and patients with inactive ulcerative colitis (UC).
Jan Ernerudh: Immunological mechanisms in pregnancy complications. The project involves functional studies of cellular interactions, multicolour immune phenotyping and protein profiling to reveal normal and dysfunctional immune tolerance mechanisms and their role in pregnancy complications.
Marie Lerm: How does the immune system epigenetically adapt to infectious disease challenges such as tuberculosis and Covid-19?
MIIC´s overall goal
is to perform high quality basic and clinical research that provide new research findings that can contribute to improve human health on a national and global level.
MIIC aims to:
- Create a collaborative and integrative environment in MIIC research areas, infection and inflammation, that strengthens the basic (LiU) and clinical research (Region Östergötland/Sydöstra sjukvårdsregionen)
- Form bridges between the Medical Faculty, Technical Faculty and clinical research that enable collaborations and joint ventures that will improve treatment and diagnostic procedures useful for health care and society
- To help and support the recruitment of additional scientists, primarily international postdocs and new principal investigators for MIIC’s basic and clinical medical research
- Increase the high impact publications as measured by publications in the top 25% journals within the specific research field and publications with an impact factor over 4
- Take advantage of the different expertise within MIIC to instruct about state-of-the-art technology/methods to advance the research within MIIC
- Provide MIIC PhD Students, postdoc fellows, and junior researchers with a research environment where they can flourish and develop their scientific skills
