Associate Senior Lecturer in Proteomics

The Department of Immunotechnology is conducting research within the Life Sciences. Currently, the research groups have a specific focus on immunology, oncology, autoimmunity and hypersensitivity. The modern laboratory facilities are located at the dynamic Medicon Village Science Park where academic research is hosted together with private companies and actors from the health care sector. A wide range of state-of the art infrastructures are available including dedicated laboratories for mass spectrometry analysis and antibody production. The application of advanced technologies to solve complex biomedical challenges has taken the department to the forefront in several of the described research areas, and several spin-off companies are also located at Medicon Village. 

Subject description
The proposed research focus includes application of a combination of affinity purification and mass spectrometry in proteomic investigations within the Life Sciences. The research is expected to have synergistic effects with other research at the Department, such as immunology, cancer, autoimmunity or hypersensitivity.

Work duties
Employment as an assistant professor (associate senior lecturer) is a career development position and  aims for the holder to develop his or her independence as a researcher and educator. The work duties mainly involve research and teaching. The position shall include the opportunity for five weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning.

Work duties comprise:

  • Research within the subject area to an extent of at least 70%
  • Project leading/collaboration with other academic groups and authorities
  • Teaching at different levels
  • Supervision of degree projects and doctoral students
  • Actively seeking external research funding
  • Co-leading the mass spectrometry platform at the Department of Immunotechnology
  • Collaboration with industry and wider society
  • Administration related to the work duties listed above                                                      

Qualification requirements
Appointment to associate senior lecturer requires that the applicant has

  • a PhD,
  • or acquired corresponding research expertise.

Priority should be given to applicants who have completed their degree or acquired the corresponding expertise no more than seven years before the last date for applications.

Additional requirements:

  • Very good oral and written proficiency in English.
  • Excellent, documented skills within mass spectrometry-based proteomics, including hands-on experience with mass spectrometric analyses
  • Documented experience of biochemical reasearch methods such as affinitiy purification and protein sample preparation
  • Documented experience with analysis of data from high-throughput methods.

Assessment criteria
For appointments to associate senior lecturer, the following shall form the assessment criteria:

  • A good ability to develop and conduct research is the primary criterium.
  • Teaching skills.

Other qualifications:

  • Demonstrated ability to obtain national or international external funding grants in competition.
  • An extensive international network is considered a merit.

Consideration will also be given to ability to co-operate, drive and independence, and how the applicant’s experience and skills complement and strengthen ongoing research, education and innovation within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.

Terms of employment
This is a full-time, fixed-term employment of a maximum of 4 years. The period of employment is determined in accordance with the collective agreement “Lokalt kollektivavtal om meriteringsanställning – biträdande universitetslektor” (“Local agreement on career development positions – associate senior lecturer”) between Lund University, SACO-S, OFR/S and SEKO, dated 26 June 2013.

Instructions on how to apply
Applications shall be written in English. Please draw up the application in accordance with LTH’s Academic qualifications portfolio – see link below. Upload the application as PDF-files in the recruitment system. Read more:

We are always seeking to recruit exceptional researchers  at all career stages


The Department of Immunotechnology, performing world leading research in the field of applied immunology and has a long history of innovation driven research. The main research areas are oncology, allergy, autoimmunity, neurobiology, and antibody engineering. Our research employs advanced technologies including different types of microarray technologies (affinity proteomics), phage display, genomics and transcriptomics, large-scale mass spectrometry-based proteomics, and associated bioinformatics. In addition, we provide genomics and proteomics services, and our antibody development platform has been integrated into SciLifeLab’s Drug Discovery and Development Platform.


MSc. Students

We have thesis projects for Masters students within immunotechnology. Please, contact the PI responsible for the research group of interest for more details.  


Ph.D. Students

We are always interested in reviewing Ph.D. student applications. For further information and updates on the application process, please contact the PI responsible for the research group of interest.   



Postdoctoral fellows

We welcome applicants for postdoctoral fellowships to apply at any time. The Department of Immunotechnology provides an advanced environment for scientists with experience in antibody technology, mass spectrometry, genomics and transcriptomics, large-scale mass spectrometry-based proteomics, different types of microarray technologies (affinity proteomics), phage display, and associated bioinformatics. In particular, we encourage people with experience in immunology, mass spectrometry, array technology, applied science and more patient oriented research (or with a strong motivation to learn the other discipline) to apply. 

For more information please contact the PI responsible for the research group of interest.


Several groups at the Department of Immunotechnology is part of the research net-work, CREATE Health, with a focus on cancer research. One of the main objectives of CREATE Health is to encourage interdisciplinary and collaborative research projects in order to develop and apply new strategies for better and earlier diagnosis as well as better treatment options for cancer patients.
