Description of the position: Studies of respiratory chain complex I, with the aim of elucidating the energy coupling mechanism on the molecular level. Different bacterial model systems are used to obtain biological material of wild type and mutants that subsequently will be investigated in vivo as well as in vitro. Advanced molecular biological work constitutes a cornerstone in the project, but it also involves expression and purification of membrane proteins and measurements concerning energy coupling efficiency.
Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad. Special eligibility requirements comprise knowledge from first-cycle studies or the equivalent, but can also refer to special professional experience. Additionally, sufficient knowledge of the subject area is required for third-cycle studies. Students meeting special eligibility requirements are those who have- at least 60 higher education credits within the same subject area as the third-cycle studies, of which in-depth work of at least 30 higher education credits of relevance to the subject area- a Swedish medical degree or Swedish certification as a doctor.
