Karolinska Institutet,

The Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS) conducts world leading research in aging, dementia, epidemiology and care sciences. This research extends from basic molecular and cell levels to clinical research and societal studies. NVS educates almost a third of KI students at basic and advanced levels. The Department has approximately 450 employees and a revenue 2019 of 497 million SEK. It comprises seven divisions, located at Campus Flemingsberg and Campus Solna.

The Division of Neurogeriatrics consists of 16 research groups and approximately 90 employees whereof approximately 20 are PhD students. Its research is focused on Alzheimer disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, and is strongly oriented towards translating findings from basic research into clinical practice.

The successful applicant will join a vibrant research center, which offers many opportunities for professional growth and is situated in the beautiful city of Stockholm. Applicants should have completed a Ph.D. in neuroscience or neuroscience-related fields. A strong background and training in electrophysiology, especially patch-clamp techniques, as well as imaging techniques is preferred. He/she will be able to select from a number of projects that aim to explore how electrical oscillations in neuronal networks, which play an important role for higher processes in the brain such as learning, memory and perception, are modulated and altered in pathological states of the brain. Our lab uses hippocampal, septal and neocortical slice preparations as well as in vivo recordings and electrophysiological recording and imaging techniques.
