With about 800 employees spread over approximately 425 man-labour years, Klinmed is the university's largest institute. Our activities follow the clinical activity at the hospitals and are spread across a number of geographical areas.

Job description

A two-year full time position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow (SKO 1352) with background in clinical mass spectrometry based proteomics is available at the K.G. Jebsen Coeliac Disease Research Centre, Institute of clinical medicine, University of Oslo.

The position is affiliated with the research group of Professor Ludvig M. Sollid at the KG Jebsen Coeliac Disease Research Centre, Department of Immunology, Institute of Clinical Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, and the project will be supervised by Dr. Jorunn Stamnæs.

More about the position

The project focuses on exploring the use of clinical biopsy material for proteome analysis by mass spectrometry. The aim is to identify tissue protein signatures that can serve as markers for active disease or disease remission in patients where histological classification is challenging or inadequate. The project will also explore approaches to obtain spatially resolved tissue proteome information.

A main goal of the K.G. Jebsen Coeliac Disease Research Centre is to translate advances in the basic understanding of the pathogenesis of coeliac disease to the clinic: to improve disease diagnostics, to implement novel treatments and to identify new therapeutic targets for this common disease. This project will contribute to development of improved diagnostics and approaches to assess patient treatment status.

The successful applicant will join a thriving and highly multidisciplinary research environment that combines basic, translational and clinical research on immune mediated diseases with particular focus on coeliac disease and autoimmunity. For more details about the research group and centre, please visit the centre web site.

The main purpose of the fellowship is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.

No one can be appointed for more than one specified period as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the same institution.
