Institutionen för medicin, Solna, Avdelningen för kardiologi

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 Division of Cardiology conducts translational and clinical research in a broad spectrum of cardiovascular disease

The Cardiology Unit at Department of Medicine, Solna has a position as senior researcher in cardiovascular research open for a highly motivated scientist. The project includes research focused on identifying molecular mechanisms and treatment of reperfusion injury in experimental models of myocardial ischemia. The project is focused on the interaction between endothelial cells, myocytes and blood cells in the development of reperfusion injury as well as in the identification of novel therapeutic targets. The studies are mainly performed in isolated organ models but also include cell culture systems and in vivo studies.

Entry requirements
Applicants should have a strong research background in experimental cardiovascular research. The applicant should have documented experience from studies of myocardial ischemia and reperfusion in isolated heart models as well as functional studies in isolated vessels, in particular the interaction between blood cells and cardiovascular function. Experience from laboratory methods including Western blotting, immunohistochemistry, enzyme assays and cell cultures are needed. Since the work is performed in a clinical environment with clinical based research questions an MD is a merit. Previous experience from a position as assistant professor or researcher and experience from supervision of PhD students are strong merits.

A person is eligible to be appointed Senior Researcher if he or she has been awarded a Degree of Doctor or has achieved the corresponding scientific competence, as well as documented research after publicly defending his or her doctoral thesis corresponding to qualification as Assistant professor.
