Researcher / Senior Researcher

For SweTree's research and development activities in Umeå, we are now looking for a Researcher / Senior Researcher with focus on the development of genetically modified trees, both via classical genetic engineering and via site-directed mutagenesis, such as CRISPR. Focus is also on process development in vegetative propagation via somatic embryogenesis for large-scale SE-plant production.

Your profile

We expect you to have a PhD in plant molecular biology. Knowledge in plant transformation and somatic embryogenesis is an advantage. You must be able to independently plan, carry out and report your work with high efficiency and accuracy. You may be a relatively recent graduate, but work experience after a doctoral degree is an advantage.

SweTree is a project organization where we work in teams towards common goals. We place great value on good collaboration and communication skills, both with colleagues in the team and with international partners and customers.
