Postdoctoral Researcher in Metabolomics of Pulmonary Medicine
Posted: January 19, 2014
Expires: March 15, 2014
Science jobs from Karolinska Institutet (KI):
The overriding aim is to increase disease understanding in asthma and COPD thereby to discover new targets for improved diagnosis and treatment. Specific goals are:
To establish quantitative molecular fingerprints of clinical sub-phenotypes of asthma and COPD, with the goal of introducing improved methods for diagnosis, prognosis and the prediction of therapeutic responses.
To employ multivariate statistics and network-based modeling to link molecular epidemiology to patient phenotype towards the goal of mapping disease etiology and pathology.
To establish more predictive animal models for research on allergies and airway diseases.
The successful applicant will belong to the Division of Physiological Chemistry II in the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics. The daily working environment will include the KI analytical core facility consisting of >30 researchers working with state of the art equipment including 5 Orbitraps and 2 QqQs coupled to dedicated nanoflow and normal flow separation modules. The environment has a strong and internationally recognized research tradition in the physiology and pathobiology of bioactive lipids. The project is funded by leading Swedish and international foundations. This full-time position is temporary (two years).
Qualifications : We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a Ph.D. in mass spectrometry or bioanalytical chemistry and experience in small molecule mass spectrometry as well as biological sample preparation techniques. We are especially interested in candidates with prior experience working with eicosanoids or other bioactive lipid mediators in inflammatory systems. Experience or interest in working with bioinformatics tools for pathway reconstruction and network analysis, as well as multivariate statistics is a significant merit, as is biomedical training with experience from clinical research or studies of metabolism. Excellent communication skills and an ability to interact socially and scientifically with other post docs and students in the laboratory and with collaborators in various networks are essential. Previous post doc experience and a strong publication record are strong merits.
To qualify, the applicant must hold a doctor's degree or a foreign qualification deemed equivalent to a doctorate. Applicants who have completed their degree no more than three years before the last date for applications will be given priority. Candidates who have completed their degree earlier than this date will receive equal priority if special grounds exist (e.g., parental leave, military service).
The Karolinska Institutet is one of Europe's largest medical universities and contains commensurate resources and infrastructure. A total of 600 research groups span the full spectrum of medical disciplines and includes 2,000 researchers, 1,000 technicians, and 2,300 postgraduate students from all parts of the world who take part in both basic and clinical research.
Start date: Funding is available immediately, but the start date is negotiable. This position is initially available for 24 months, with potential renewal for at least an additional 12 months based upon mutual agreement.
Salary: Salary is stipend-based and includes health insurance.
Applications: Send applications, including research experience, CV and at least two references to Craig Wheelock (email@example.com). The position is open until filled and applications will be evaluated as received.
