PhD Scholarship in Neurobiology Within The Area of Neurodegenerative Diseases

Uppsala University, Sweden has an opening PhD position in pathology. Applications are welcome before September 02, 2019.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of age-related neurodegenerative disease and causes much suffering for the patients and their families. Knowledge about the cellular mechanisms behind the initiation and spreading of the disease is still very limited. Decades of research have focused on neuronal abnormalities during the disease progression, but recently more and more attention has been given to glial cells. Being the most numerous glial cell type, astrocytes have great impact on the brain environment and may constitute a potent treatment target. The overall aim with our research is to clarify the involvement of astrocytes in the initiation and progression of Alzheimer's disease and to investigate their therapeutic potential. The PhD project will be focused on studies on tau pathology in astrocytes by investigations of advanced cell culture systems and analysis of patient samples. The selection of candidates will be performed according to the following criteria: fulfillment of the eligibility requirements, personal suitability, previous work experience and / or research in the related field. The supervisors, together with the department's research education group, will make the final selection. The Medicine and Pharmacy Research Education Committee is the body that formally accepts the student.
