There is an open post-doctoral position for an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Canlon lab is investigating the role of glucocorticoids and inflammation on the circadian regulation of synaptic pathology. Central to this research is the characterization of novel signaling pathways regulating synaptic coupling dynamics (un-coupling and re-innervation) under various stress conditions.

The goal for the post-doctor is to clarify how glucocorticoid-dependent inflammatory signals cause synaptic pathology. The work involves protein analysis and biochemistry (western blot, ELISA, immunoprecipitation and ChIP), analysis of RNA sequencing data and FACS (sorting and analysis). This study will be utilizing different mouse models.

The applicant should have publications that reflect the duties which are included in this research.
Furthermore, it is an advantage to have experience with cryostat sectioning, immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, light microscopy, image analysis, and molecular biology standard techniques.

We are seeking a highly motivated person with a passionate interest for detailed analysis of molecular mechanisms underlying synaptic disorders. The applicant should also be able to express himself well in English, written and oral and be able to work both independently and in groups. Applicants must hold a certificate or equivalent for independent work with mice. The candidate is expected to be relatively independent in the areas of experimental design, data gathering and analysis as well as manuscript preparation.
