Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine, Solna, Rheumatology division

The Department of Medicine, Solna, is one of the largest departments at Karolinska Institutet. The department consists of several divisions that are separated into different research groups. The core activities of the department are research, doctoral education and undergraduate education for medical and biomedical students. The research has three main profiles: allergy, cardiovascular medicine and inflammatory diseases.

The Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM) is a nationally leading and internationally competitive environment for studies of tissue inflammation. Ample interaction between groups interested in different aspects of basic and applied molecular and cellular immunology leads to innovative approaches to address basic and clinical biological questions. The Eidsmo laboratory is part of the Division of Rheumatology, where interdisciplinary research focus on tissue immunology and epidemiology. The laboratory offers state-of-the art techniques, from basic cell sorting of tissue derived cells to cutting-edge molecular and imaging techniques.

We seek a highly motivated person, preferably student, to help out with basic tasks in the laboratory, such as cleaning, preparation of tissue samples, performing enzymatic experiments and supporting the research group. This is a part time position of maximum 10 hours per week.. The work is performed in close collaboration with basic T cell biologists and clinicians to understand the fine-tuned balance between T cell biology in skin diseases.
The studies will include work on patient material, cell lines, animal models and primary skin-derived cells. Therefore, the prospective student will be involved in research methodology and project development in clinically relevant areas.
