Naturvårdsbiolog

Naturvårdsbiolog är en biolog som genom påbyggnadsutbildningar och arbetslivserfarenhet har specialiserat sig inom naturvårdsfrågor. Anställningstitlar som förekommer är bl a biolog och bevarandebiolog. Oavsett titeln kan man arbeta med samma typ av frågor, samtidigt som två personer med samma titel kan arbeta med ganska olika arbetsuppgifter.

Naturvårdsbiologer arbetar i första hand med frågor som har att göra med bevarande av biologisk mångfald och med naturvård. I arbetsuppgifterna kan ingå arbete med uppföljning och miljöövervakning för att se om det sker förändringar, positiva eller negativa, i vår natur och miljö över tiden.

Utbildning

Akademisk utbildning inom biologi krävs, oftast lägst på master-nivå, det vill säga minst fem års heltidsstudier på högskola/universitet. Rekommendationen är att börja läsa biologi och ta ut kandidatexamen i biologi och sedan söka påbyggnadsutbildning i Artbevarande eller i Miljövetenskap eller söka till ett masterprogram med inriktning inom bevarandebiologi eller biodiversitet.

Efteråt kan man fortsätta fördjupa sig inom område "naturvård och artbevarande". På sikt kan man bli miljöforskare.

Eftersom man med den denna typ av frågor ofta arbetar i de internationella miljöer med kollegor från olika länder, är det viktigt att ha goda språkkunskaper i framförallt engelska. Kan man flera språk är det mycket meriterande.

Bra förberedande utbildning finns på gymnasieskolans Naturvetenskapsprogrammet, inriktning Naturvetenskap.

Arbetsplats

En naturvårdsbiolog kan t ex vara anställd på naturskyddsenheten vid Länsstyrelsen. På naturskyddsenheten arbetar man med att bilda, vårda och informera om skyddade områden, som nationalparker, naturreservat, Natura 2000-områden, naturminnen med mera. 

Det är ett omväxlande arbete som passar dem som brinner för frågor som rör natur och miljö. Arbetsuppgifterna kan variera och inkludera allt från inventeringar av olika arter och floraövervakning, till planering och uppföljning av skyddade områden och naturinformation.

En myndighet som arbetar med artbevarande i Sverige är Naturvårdsverket. Andra organisationer som arbetar med denna typ av frågor är bland annat WWF, SIDA och Greenpeace.

Job description

Modulation of ER stress responses in primary lung cells

Thesis project:
30 credits
Student location:
AstraZeneca, Gothenburg, Sweden
Start:
January 2022

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, arising from perturbed protein homeostasis, activates the unfolded protein response (UPR) that leads to a myriad of downstream cellular events. We believe that dysregulation or defective UPR responses plays an important role in chronic respiratory diseases such as COPD or IPF. This project aims to investigate and modulate the UPR pathway activation in primary lung cells of different origin to identify the major cell types targeted by ER stress and its specific downstream UPR responses.

Responsibilities

In this placement, the student will be part of a cross-functional team within Research and Early Development, Respiratory and Immunology (R&I), building scientific knowledge around disease-causing molecular mechanisms and identification of novel targets for treatment. Specifically, the student will be working closely with a team investigating the role of ER stress in COPD and IPF.
 
Objectives and goals:
  1. Establish protocols to induce ER stress and monitor the UPR and associated respiratory disease-relevant biological pathways in primary lung cells.
  2.  Acquire extensive training in fundamental molecular and cell biology techniques, including qPCR, cell imaging, Western blot and other cellular/protein assays. 
  3. Contribute scientifically to the cross-functional ER stress team.
  4. Get insight in project work and drug discovery. 

Qualifications

Essential Requirements
  • Good networking skills and interpersonal skills.
  • Interest and curiosity in molecular biology and the experimental work behind drug discovery.
  • Ability to work independently.
  • Understanding of cell and molecular biology.
  • Written and oral communication skills in English.

Desirable Requirements 
  • Experience in cell culture.
  • Experience in molecular cell biology techniques eg. qPCR and Western blot.
  • Skilled in problem solving.

Application

Randstad Life Sciences is cooperating with AstraZeneca in this recruitment process. We only handle applications sent through Randstad’s website.

All chosen candidates need to pass a background check and an alcohol and drug test before starting the project.

Deadline for application: 2021-10-20

Job description

Clearing for Lung Tissue Transparency – towards 3D imaging

Thesis project:
30 credits
Student location:
AstraZeneca, Gothenburg, Sweden
Start:
January 2022

Did you know organs can be made transparent and be imaged in 3D? If you are interested in working with 3D imaging of lung in a group with advanced imaging labeling techniques – please come join the Swedish Imaging Hub at Imaging and data analytics, CPSS (clinical and pharmacological safety sciences) for you master thesis.

Now that we have developed clearing protocols for creating transparent organs a number of questions about exactly what can be viewed, how structures are connected to eachother, in what magnification can the tissues be viewed and how many things can we label and investigate at the same time. The organ we will start exploring this in is the lung. Lung tissues have a complex matrix of heterogenic molecules, for example elastin, collagen and phospholipids in cell membranes. Our clearing method remove many of these heterogenous molecule while proteins and carbohydrates that are covalently bound to the matrix and each other are still preserved, making us able to label what is of interest with fluorescent tags and image them. At first we will focus in imaging a lot of the important proteins naturally occurring in the lung together with inhaled drugs and on top of that explore capturing a detailed 3D view of disease related phenotypes like inflammation and tumors. You will join an organization at AZ focusing on Imaging, imaging analyses and how to use artificial intelligence to support the image analyses. The organization is a part of AZ that works with safety concerns which might arise during drug development.

Responsibilities

By joining our team you will learn techniques and principles around tissue labelling and imaging. You will learn to appreciate how important imaging is during scientific trouble shouting and drug development. The goal of your particular project will be to:

  • Further improve the clearing protocol in particular to speed up the clearing and labeling process.
  • Test different labeling techniques to get the most out of the 3D information as possible
  • Evaluate the 3D high resolution images and support the development of digital image analyses to quantitatively determine numbers and volume measurements

Qualifications

Essential Requirements
  • You have at least 2 years of studies at the University
  • English communication skills
  • Commit to labwork
  • Thorough
  • Responsive
Desirable Requirements 
  • Science focused
  • Creative

Application

Randstad Life Sciences is cooperating with AstraZeneca in this recruitment process. We only handle applications sent through Randstad’s website.

All chosen candidates need to pass a background check and an alcohol and drug test before starting the project.
