Postdoctor Genetic Risk Factors and Different Hallmarks of Alzheimer's

Lund University has an opening postdoctoral associate position in psychological testing. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 2 years. Applications are invited up to February 07, 2019.

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.

The laboratories of Niklas Mattsson and Oskar Hansson at the Faculty of Medicine, Lund University now seek a postdoctoral fellow for genetic/bioinformatic analyses in Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Our research is focused on defining and understanding biological processes in Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. We work both with cohorts of patients and cognitively unimpaired volunteers, who undergo extensive testing with neuroimaging, biomarker measurements and neuropsychological testing, and with animal- and cell biology experiments. The postdoc will join a growing multidisciplinary team of neuroscientists and clinical researchers, who are dedicated to increase the knowledge about neurodegenerative diseases. The long-term goal of our research is to contribute to the development of new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases where effective treatments are still lacking. The postdoc will focus on genetic data analyses to identify links between genetic risk factors and different hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. A key task will be to integrate genetic information with other data that is already available in our studies, including neuroimaging (MRI and PET) and biochemical data. The project may also include analysis of gene expression data and protein expression data, including on material generated from induced human neurons. The position is full time over 2 years. Applications should include a personal letter, curriculum vitae, proof of completed PhD, and names/contact information for three references.

Deadline: February 07, 2019
