We are recruiting a highly motivated candidate with a background in vascular biology, tumour biology and/or neuroscience for a 2 years postdoctoral training (possibility of extension) to the research group “Translational Neurology” at the Wallenberg Neurocentrum and Wallenberg Centrum for Molecular Medicine, Lund University.

Bridging between the lab and the clinic, our group is interested in cutting-edge neuroregenerative therapies spanning from mechanistic studies for target identification all the way to clinical trials. We examine the dysfunction of the neurovascular unit with a special focus on pericytes as key players in neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration and potential target cells for brain repair. Our research is translational, involves human samples and has a close connection to clinical implementation.
The project will focus on the histological and molecular characterization of vascular cells in in vivo models of Parkinson’s disease and glioblastoma and in human samples.The candidate will work with in vivo models, confocal and light sheet imaging, transcriptomics and proteomics.
Our group is a member of centres of excellence in neurodegenerative disease research ( and regeneration ( The environment at Lund University provides excellent post-doctoral training in state-of the art techniques, numerous guest lectures and workshops.

Candidates must have a PhD not older than 3 years at the time they start the position.
