Karolinska Institutet

The Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC) operates mainly at The Flemingsberg Campus in connection to Karolinska University Hospital Huddinge. The Department also operates at Karolinska University Hospital in Solna and Solna Campus. There are 14 Divisions and 1 Section at CLINTEC. The activities include clinical research, education and development.

We work in an international and multicultural environment with undergraduates, graduate students, exchange students in the ERASMUS program, postdoctoral researchers, educators and scientists at Karolinska Institutet and organizations with a common vision of excellence in research, education and development. CLINTEC has about 180 employees, about 200 graduate students and 400 affiliated scientists and educators.

The researcher is responsible in maintenance and development of new tests for fast evaluation of organ or cell graft quality and function (before transplantation) or organ injury and rejection after transplantation). The researcher is working two days per week with flexibility for coming to the lab when graft tissue is available for examinations. The researcher is expected to work independently in the lab. Close co-operation with clinicians is expected for creating good research environment for innovations and inspiration. The aim is to identify new, more specific and sensitive markers of organ (liver, pancreas) function and injury with potential commercialization of the findings.
