Karolinska Institutet, Institutionen för neurovetenskap, Ibanez

The Department of Neuroscience includes several research groups working on different aspects of nervous system function, both under normal conditions and in various disease states. Research projects include a broad range of studies on the molecular and cellular levels, networks of neurons, and the organization of the nervous system as a whole. The Department has a flat organization with 40 researchers, of which 24 are full professors and 65 PhD students.

Teaching represents a fundamental activity at the Department, which participates in several undergraduate courses and postgraduate education programs. Each year approximately 15 students receive their PhD from our Department and many of our graduates have gone onto distinguished careers in the academic or private sector.

The research group of professor Carlos Ibanez is now seeking a talented and enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers with expertise in molecular and cellular neurobiology to advance investigations on the functions and mechanisms of neurotrophic signaling in the nervous system. The research entails studies of death receptor signaling pathways in cell culture models as well as phenotypic characterisation of mutant mice carrying specific mutations in neurotrophic factor receptors.
