Postdoctoral Researcher in Signal Transduction, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden


We aim to recruit highly motivated postdoctoral researchers to strengthen our technical skills for in vivo studies of physiological Ca2+ signaling in pancreatic islets.
The focus of the projects can be categorized as follows

Technically oriented tasks

  • Establish, develop and use new techniques for fast 3D fluorescence imaging of living cells in the living animal. One such technique can be SCAPE microscopy.
  • Master and refine already existing techniques for fluorescence imaging in our laboratory, including confocal, multiphoton and widefield modalities.
  • Give support to users of advanced microscopy in our laboratory.
  • Be instrumental in an advanced project for development of a miniature wireless device for monitoring of fluorescence.

Data processing tasks

  • To refine, develop and implement image analysis strategies for image registration, noise reduction and cell segmentation from time series of three-dimensional data.
  • Perform higher-level image analysis including cluster-, and network-analysis in order to generate information about three-dimensional functional connectivity within the islet.
  • Give support to users of advanced image processing in our laboratory

Two individual researchers may divide these tasks between them. Therefore, researchers representing a subset of the listed skills are welcome to apply.
