Designation/Position- Postdoctoral Fellow Position-2019-20
University of Gothenburg, Sweden invites application for Postdoctoral Fellow Position-2019-20 from eligible and interested candidates
About- The Institute of Biomedicine is involved in both research and education. In both of these areas, we focus on fundamental knowledge of the living cell – what it consists of, how it works, how its function is directed by the genetic material, and how it interacts with various kinds of micro-organisms. Using this knowledge, we try to elucidate the causes of diseases, and find new ways to diagnose and treat them.
The Institute is composed of the following four departments:
- The Department of Infectious Diseases
- The Department of Microbiology and Immunology
- The Department of Medical Biochemistry and Cell Biology
- The Department of Laboratory Medicine
At present, the institute has about 370 employees and approximately 400 million SEK in total assets.
Research/Job Area- Molecular biology, Biochemistry and related area
Project Title- Molecular Adipocyte Metabolism
Location- University of Gothenburg, Sweden
An achieved doctoral degree is compulsory for a position as postdoctor at Göteborg University.
The doctoral thesis shall be in a relevant area according to the specific position stated here.
Since a position as postdoctor aims to give new holders of the doctorate the opportunity mainly to strengthen and develop their scholarly proficiency, who have a doctoral degree not older than 3 years counting from last date of application.
The ideal candidate will have experience in molecular regulation of metabolism and the techniques used in molecular biology, biochemistry and animal work measuring metabolic parameters such as glucose tolerance tests. Experience in the methods used to monitor basal and insulin-mediated glucose uptake is important.
With this project the candidate will study the how brown and white adipocytes regulate their metabolism in response to external signals and during adaptation to metabolic stress e.g. diseases such as type 2 diabetes. The aim of this project is to identify the molecular mechanisms responsible for metabolic adaptation in adipocytes and how this also influences metabolism in other organs e.g. muscle and liver.
