Post-doctoral position at the Department of Molecular Skeletal Biology

Lund University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The Faculty of Medicine is a part of Lund University, and is responsible for education and research within medicine and healthcare. Our academic programs are closely linked with the healthcare system and are firmly anchored in the faculty’s strong research tradition. Our research spans a broad field within experimental preclinical research, near-patient clinical research and health sciences research. The Faculty of Medicine, with its 1,800 employees and 2,700 students in Lund and Malmö, is a knowledge-intensive meeting place for students, teachers and researchers from all over the world.

The Department of Clinical Sciences in Lund (IKVL) is one of six institutions at the Faculty of Medicine, Lund University. The department has a broad collaboration, both within the faculty and within other units at the University. IKVL also has a well-developed collaboration with Skåne University Hospital (SUS) and Region Skåne as well as the surrounding community and business.

Research group

Bone is a complex organ that offers structural and mechanical support to our body but is also the principal location for hematopoiesis. Bone formation involves as distinct stages as possible the formation of cartilage, vascular supply, bone and bone marrow. Our lab aims to compile human specification knowledge on these processors to drive the creation of innovative regenerative treatments.

Within the group we aim to maintain a good working environment based on mutual respect and consideration. We constantly strive to improve the conditions for work, development and participation for all employees.

We are hereby adverstising for the position of a post doctoral fellow. The position is full time for two years according to central agreement for temporary position as post-doctoral fellow. Desired start date is the 1 of March or according to agreement.

Work assignments

The candidate will exploit human mesenchymal cells for the generation and characterization of human ossicles. The project will consist in understanding the mechanisms underlying preferential engraftment of human hematopoietic stem cells in human ossicles.

Qualification requirements
Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position, completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.
