Description of research group and duties 
We are looking for a senior research specialist to strengthen the Professor Ulrika Ådén´s group at the Neonatology Research Division. The research group constitutes of PhD students, postdocs, research nurses, psychologists, among others. The research is focused on strategies for preventing and treating neonatal brain damage. The work is divided into the following areas:

  • Experimental models of neonatal asphyxia and white matter injury
  • Characterization of long term inflammation and the effect of immunomodulation and behavioral follow up of experimental neonatal brain damage
  • Neonatal brain imaging during development using magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis of brain damage and prediction
  • Long term follow up of children with risk for neonatal brain damage, in particular children born preterm.

Entry requirements and bases for assessment
A person is eligible to be appointed Senior Research Specialist if he or she has been awarded a Degree of Doctor or has achieved the equivalent scientific competence, as well as documented research after publicly defending his or her doctoral thesis. We stress research expertise when assessing applicants, with strongest emphasis of published studies in the field of perinatal medicine.

We are seeking an outstanding candidate with expertise in perinatal medicine, in particular animal models of perinatal injury. The position will be funded for 1 year with possible extension.

The successful candidate should have a PhD in medical sciences. It is required to have several years of postdoctoral training and experience from practical training and supervising PhD students and younger colleagues. Experience from coordinating and leading research projects is essential, in particular from stem cell biology and immunology. The ability to independently perform cell culture, FACS, immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, molecular biology and protein chemistry, including experience from both cell culture and animal models, are strong merits.

The candidate must be able to work independently and show flexibility and ability to collaborate. The candidate should also have published papers as corresponding (or co-corresponding) author. Excellent speaking and writing in English is mandatory.
