Welcome to NDPIA!

The National Doctoral Programme in Infection and Antibiotics (NDPIA) is a research school funded by The Swedish Research Council (VR) and is affiliated with MIMS (Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden, Umeå University) and the Swedish National Network for Infection Biology.

NDPIA has the goal to connect research environments studying infection biology and antibiotics throughout Sweden by offering courses & workshops, conferences, research stays in Sweden and abroad, and network meetings that promote scientific research and recruitment of young scientists.

NDPIA supports participation in these activities by co-funding of travel and accommodation costs. PhD students and postdoctoral fellows enrolled at a Swedish university/institute or with one of our international partners and studying infection biology and antibiotics are welcome to apply for membership here.

KI is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in bacterial regulatory RNAs in disease

Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?

NDPIA Director of Studies Dr. Edmund Loh and his group are looking for a postdoctoral research fellow to work on a project on RNA-mediated pili regulation in the meningococcus.

The Edmund Loh Lab is focusing on RNA-mediated molecular mechanisms that are involved in bacterial pathogenesis. The pathogen of research is Neisseria meningitidis (meningococcus) and we utilise a wide variety of genetic, cell biological and biochemical methods and techniques. The research in Dr. Loh’s group focuses on the regulation of sRNAs and their gene expression patterns during various biological stress conditions.
