Postdoc Position in Lungmedicine at Lund University

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship position in molecular biology to join Lund University. This fellowship is last for 2 years and posible to extend. The deadline to apply is December 13, 2018.

The Faculty of Medicine is a part of Lund University, and is responsible for education and research within medicine and healthcare. Our academic programs are closely linked with the healthcare system and are firmly anchored in the faculty's strong research tradition. Our research spans a broad field within experimental preclinical research, near-patient clinical research and health sciences research. The Faculty of Medicine, with its 1,800 employees and 2,700 students in Lund and Malm, is a knowledge-intensive meeting place for students, teachers and researchers from all over the world.

In the project “Dysregulated inflammation and lung injury” we will characterize mechanisms causing lung injury during both systemic and local inflammation in the airways. Intervention will be performed using novel small molecular compounds as well as determining the importance of key molecules of the immune system. The disease models used will reflect ARDS, COPD, and asthma.

We can offer a stimulating environment with access to state of the art techniques including Bioplex, multi-channel Q-PCR, and surface plasmon resonance. In addition, we are a network of several interacting research groups, sharing techniques and instruments as well as having regular seminars

Both in vitro and in vivo models of airway inflammation are used. The work will include design and planning of studies, performing experiments, analyzing and compiling data, and writing manuscripts. In addition, supervision of students and giving research seminars will be included.

This is a career development position primarily focused on research. The position is intended as an initial step in a career, and the assessment of the applicants will primarily be based on their research qualifications and potential as researchers.

Particular emphasis will be placed on research skills within the subject.

Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree deemed equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position, completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.

To be eligible, the recipient must hold a PhD degree within a relevant field (e.g. medicine, biomedicine, molecular biology or similar).

The eligible person should have experience of cell biology (e.g. cell culture and flow cytometry) and protein chemistry e.g. SDS-PAGE and western blot).

Experience from murine models of human diseases is an advantage. Broad knowledge of the immune system.
