Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Pharmacy (neurobiology)
Position as postdoctoral research fellow is available at School of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences, University of Oslo. The fellowship is part of the PharmaTox Strategic Research Initiative.
The fellowship period is 3 years. Within the framework of the position duties may be assigned. Starting date as soon as possible, no later than 01.01.2017. No one can be appointed for more than one specified period at the same institution.
Job description/ Project description:
The background for the PharmaTox Strategic Research Initiative is the present international lack of knowledge about the possible long-term effect of pharmaceuticals on neurodevelopment. PharmaTox is a multidisciplinary center comprising strong research environments in pharmaceutical bioscience, biology, bioinformatics and statistics. We will develop new strategies for studying neurotoxicity of pharmaceuticals by combining human epidemiological data with biological data and data from animal models. The epidemiological data consists of the Mother and Child Cohort (MoBa) at the National Institute of Public Health linked to other national health registries.
The aim of the postdoctoral position is to conduct experimental research in animal models (mainly chicken) of pharmaceuticals commonly used by pregnant women with an association to behavior effects in the MoBa cohort, to find molecular mechanisms of their effect on neurodevelopment. Such medications include paracetamol, antidepressants, and antiepileptic drugs. Many of the studies will be conducted in the developing chicken embryo.
The postdoctoral fellow will become part of the neurobiology group at the Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences and a member of the PharmaTox Strategic Research Initiative. An important part of the position will be to lead a research activity including Master students from the School of Pharmacy.
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.
The candidate must have a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in Pharmacy (neurobiology). PhD candidates who have handed in their thesis are also eligible to apply.
Knowledge of brain development and experimental studies in animal models (e.g. the chicken embryo model) is advantageous.
Experience with Master student supervision is an advantage.
The main purpose of post-doctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in top academic positions within their disciplines.
A good command of English is required.
Position code 1352, Pay Grade: 57 – ۶۵ (NOK 486 ۱۰۰ – ۵۶۷ ۱۰۰ per year, depending on qualifications and seniority).
The application must include:
CV (summarizing education, positions, pedagogical experience, administrative experience and other qualifying activity)
Copies of educational certificates, transcript of records and letters of recommendation
A complete list of publications and up to 5 academic works that the applicant wishes to be considered by the evaluation committee
Names and contact details of 2-3 references (name, relation to candidate, e-mail and telephone number)
Please remember that all documents should be in English or a Scandinavian language.
In accordance with the University of Oslo’s equal opportunities policy, we invite applications from all interested individuals regardless of gender or ethnicity.
UiO has an agreement for all employees, aiming to secure rights to research results a.o.
