Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?
The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) is a department with a strong focus on basic science. CMB conducts research and education in cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, stem cell biology, cancer and infection biology. CMB is located in Biomedicum, a new interdisciplinary research center designed to concentrate much of the experimental research conducted at Karolinska Institutet Campus Solna under one roof to promote collaboration. Biomedicum houses approximately 1,200 researchers and other personnel and allows expensive equipment to be shared and utilized more effectively
Description of the research group
Kirsty Spalding research group investigates various properties of human adipose tissue. We are interested in understanding the heterogeneity of human adipose depots, how human fat cells respond to obesity and senescence in human adipose tissue.
The successful candidate will be responsible for performing core techniques central to the laboratory’s research. This includes handling human tissue (tissue dissection, cell and nuclei isolation), immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry and confocal microscopy, molecular biology (DNA and RNA isolation, qPCR, protein analyses including western blot and ELISA/Mesoscale), invasion assay and cell and tissue culture.
To be eligible, an applicant must have:
- Bachelor’s degree in biomedicine, molecular biology or molecular biotechnology
- Masters degree
- Expertise in molecular biology techniques, including qPCR, western blot and protein assays
- Histology and immunocytochemistry techniques and confocal microscopy
- Cell invasion assay
- Senescence (SABG assay)
- The applicant must speak and write fluent English
Preference will be given to candidates who have expertise in the above techniques in human adipose tissue
Excellent interpersonal and organizational skills are required. Emphasis will be placed on qualities as responsibility, flexibility, teamwork and ability to solve problems.
