Åbo Akademi University is an internationally acknowledged research university with an extensive responsibility for providing education in Swedish in Finland. With its international research community and its strong Nordic ties, Åbo Akademi University has an acclaimed and recognized position within research and education both nationally and internationally.
Åbo Akademi University Research Flagship InFLAMES: Innovation Ecosystem based on the Immune System, funded by the Academy of Finland, invites applications for a fixed-term project researcher position in the field of endothelial mechanobiology and inflammatory signaling for a period of two years starting June 21st, 2021 or as agreed, the COVID-19 situation permitting. The fixed-termed position is full time.
About the research environment
The InFLAMES Flagship (https://inflames.utu.fi/) is a joint effort of Åbo Akademi University, University of Turku and the associated ecosystem. It aims at being an internationally recognized, top-level, immunological research and development cluster attracting both researchers and business partners. It will produce break-through knowledge on immunological principles and diseases. The Flagship also aims to provide novel discoveries, which lead to improved diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory disorders. Innovations, internationally recognized scientists, an extensive state-of-the-art research infrastructure and intensive academy–industry interactions form the foundation of the InFLAMES Flagship research.
The position will be seated at the Sahlgren lab, Cell Fate Lab (http://cellfatelab.github.io/), Cell biology, Faculty of Science and Engineering in Turku.
The group seeks a project researcher to work on endothelial mechanobiology and integrity, barriers and mediators of inflammation and novel model systems. Mechanical forces and the Notch signaling pathway control the structure of vessel walls while deregulation of Notch is linked to atherosclerosis and pulmonary artery hypertension, associated with inflammation and arterial remodeling. Our aim is to study the interplay of mechanical, Notch and inflammatory signals in controlling the architecture of blood vessels via in vivo, in vitro and in silico model systems.
