Karolinska Institutet, Institutionen för fysiologi och farmakologi

At the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology we teach and conduct internationally acclaimed, high-quality research in Physiology, Pharmacology, Anesthesiology and Intensive care. We have around 400 employees, 30 research groups, and 90 doctoral students. Our research fields include cellular signaling, cardiovascular and respiratory systems, neuropsychopharmacology, neuroinflammation, pharmacogenetics, regenerative medicine, Renal System, anesthesiology and intensive care, muscle physiology and pain. Our collaboration with the clinics at Karolinska University Hospital provides unique opportunities for translational research within our subjects.

The post-doctoral candidate will have the opportunity to join our research Group of Experimental Audiology where we are focused on characterizing how circadian rhythms influence the interaction between glucocorticoids and inflammatory signaling.

More information about the research Group: http://ki.se/en/fyfa/experimental-audiology  

The project aim is to clarify how circadian and glucocorticoid-dependent inflammatory signals cause synaptic pathology. A battery of functional (EEG based recording), morphological (light and confocal microscopy) and molecular (RNA seq, cytokine profiling and FACS) methods will be used on mouse models.
Applicants with a strong background in these techniques and immunology are given preference. Moreover, experience with the mouse auditory system would be useful but not necessary.

The candidate is expected to be relatively independent in the areas of experimental design, data gathering and analysis as well as manuscript preparation.
