Do you want to contribute to improving human health?

The research at the Division of Molecular Metabolism aims at understanding the regulation of mitochondrial function and the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in disease and ageing. Using patient material and different animal models, our overall aim is to get insights into disease pathophysiology and to develop novel treatments.

Your mission

We are currently looking for a Research administrator to join the research group of Professor Nils-Göran Larsson. The successful candidate will play an important role for the development and smooth running of the unit. The work includes establishing and maintaining effective working relationships with division staff, staff at the clinic Centre for Inherited Metabolic Diseases (CMMS) at Karolinska University Hospital, staff in the department and other units within Karolinska Institutet, internal and external collaborators, authorities and funding agencies. The duties will be varied and include:

* research and identifying available and suitable funding opportunities, coordinate grant application activities

* contribute to the preparation and drafting of applications and reports to funding agencies

* manage the reporting process with the funding agencies
