Doctoral student in Medical Science - Function and gene expression of single beta-cells

 


The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 56 000 students and 6 600 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

Doctoral position in Medical Science

Project title: Function and gene expression of single beta-cells

The Department of Physiology is located at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at the Faculty of Medicine at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg. The Department conducts research within the area of physiology. Several projects involve a close collaboration with the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. We offer undergraduate courses as parts of study programs in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Speech and language pathology, Dental hygiene, Occupational therapy, Physiotherapy and the bachelor program of Cognitive Science. The research groups at the Department represent a broad range of research areas within the field of physiology.

General information about being a doctoral student at the University of Gothenburg can be found on the university's doctoral student pages: https://medarbetarportalen.gu.se/doktorand/?languageId=100001&skipSSOCheck=true    

Duties   

The PhD education in Medical Science comprises carrying out a scientific project and completing at least 30 credits of courses at third-cycle level. The doctoral student must also write a scientific compilation thesis or monograph corresponding to at least 120 credits. For more information about third-cycle studies at Sahlgrenska Academy, see https://www.gu.se/en/sahlgrenska-akademin/doctoral-studies

Project: Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an escalating health problem of enormous proportions. Although existing drugs reduce hyperglycaemia, they fail to stop the gradual beta-cell failure that is the key determinant of disease progression. There is consequently an urgent need for improved knowledge of the cellular mechanisms that cause beta-cell failure. We have recently demonstrated that human pancreatic beta-cells lose their mature phenotype in T2D. Interesting reports have also shown that there are pools of beta-cells within a pancreatic islet that differ in secretory response to glucose and that the proportion of such pools is altered in T2D. This is yet a largely unexplored area, but the new findings emphasise the need to analyse the single-cell phenotype to better define the exact changes of beta-cell function and expression in T2D and enable treatment that more precisely counteracts secretory failure.

The doctoral candidate will use cutting-edge single-cell techniques to study the functional and gene expression changes that are associated with beta-cell failure. Genes that are consistently associated with beta-cell failure will be scrutinized in-depth by a range of cell-physiological techniques to pinpoint the mechanisms that fail in the secretory machinery when the gene is perturbed. By defining the phenotype and proportion of cellular pools in diabetic and non-diabetic conditions in a more precise manner than has previously been possible, the project is at the international forefront and has the potential to lead to new mechanistic understanding of beta-cell failure and potentially identify new targets to preserve beta-cell function, which is an urgent clinical need. The doctoral student will get unique training in cell-physiology, gene expression analysis and clinical medicine. The student will be part of a stimulating research environment with access to expertise in a diverse range of areas of relevance to the project.

Education at third-cycle level comprises four years of full-time study, and leads to a doctoral degree.

Postdoctor in Experimental Psychiatry

 


The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 56 000 students and 6 600 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

At the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, at the Sahlgrenska Academy, we conduct research and education covering a wide range of knowledge areas. The institute comprises five different departments: Clinical Neuroscience, Health and Rehabilitation, Pharmacology, Physiology and Psychiatry and Neurochemistry.

The Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, invites applications for a postdoctoral position at the Department of Psychiatry and Neurochemistry. 

Subject area

Experimental Psychiatry 

Subject area description

Schizophrenia is one of the most serious psychiatric diagnoses. Schizophrenia is characterized by so-called positive, negative and cognitive symptoms. Available pharmacotherapy is effective mainly for treatment of the positive symptoms (hallucinations, delusions), whereas the negative (anhedonia, inactivity, ”autism”-like symptoms) and cognitive symptoms are more difficult to treat and at the same time are those with most impact on the long-term prognosis for the patient. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a gigantic public health problem and afflicts also psychiatric patients, e.g. patients with schizophrenia. Treatments available for AUD, both pharmacological and psychological, have small effect sizes and simply are not good enough. The research group has recently patented two new treatment principles, one for the negative symptoms of schizophrenia and one for AUD. This preclinical project is aimed at further experimentally confirming and developing these new treatment principles. To this end we use a combination of behavioral models, in vivo microdialysis, neurochemistry and molecular biology. The studies will be conducted under supervision of Professor Bo Söderpalm and Professor Mia Ericson, at the Institute for Neuroscience and Physiology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg. 

Job assignments

The candidate will be responsible for the behavioral models and contribute to the in vivo microdialysis studies as well as the neurochemical and molecular biological analyses. The candidate will also be expected to compile data, draw figures and write initial versions of research articles and funding applications.

Eligibility

The eligibility criteria for employing teaching staff are set out in Chapter 4 of the Higher Education Ordinance and in the Appointment Procedure for Teaching Posts at the University of Gothenburg.  

To be eligible for appointment as a postdoc, the applicant is required to have a doctoral degree, a doctoral degree in art or a foreign degree that is deemed to be equivalent to a doctoral degree. This eligibility requirement must be met before the employment decision is made. 

In the first instance, those who have completed their degree no more than three years prior to the end of the application period shall be considered. Those who have completed their degree more than three years prior to the end of the application period may also be considered in the first instance if special grounds exist. Special grounds relate to leave of absence due to illness, parental leave, commissions of trust within union organisations, service within the defence services or other similar circumstances, as well as clinical service or service/assignment relevant to the subject area.  

Assessment

Previous theoretical knowledge in the field is appreciated. Previous experience of behavioral models in rats and mice as well of the in vivo microdialysis technique and neurochemistry is a merit. Great emphasis will be placed on personal suitability.

In the first instance, those who have completed their degree no more than three years prior to the end of the application period shall be considered. Those who have completed their degree more than three years prior to the end of the application period may also be considered in the first instance if special grounds exist. Special grounds relate to leave of absence due to illness, parental leave, commissions of trust within union organisations, service within the defence services or other similar circumstances, as well as clinical service or service/assignment relevant to the subject area.  

Assessment criteria 

The applicants must have a PhD in a relevant area of research such as structural biology, biochemistry/biophysics, pharmacology or related fields. The successful candidates should have extensive experience in cloning, expression and purification of membrane proteins. Extra merit is given to those with previous experience in structural biology (cryo-EM or X-ray crystallography) or in pharmacology.

Great emphasis will be placed on the candidate’s personal suitability for the position and interest in the subject area as well as their long-term research goals. The work involves close collaborations with other researchers and thus demands flexibility and a willingness to travel for data collection purposes.  Excellent communication skills (spoken and written) in English are a prerequisite for the position.

Regulations for the evaluation of qualifications for academic positions are given in Chapter 4, Section 3 - 4 of the Higher Education Ordinance.

Employment
