Description

The AlzeCure Foundation together with University of Gothenburg announces a new Ph.D. student position. The Ph.D. candidate will work on evaluating different molecules as potentially new biomarkers in Alzheimer's disease. This is both for diagnostic use as well as for monitoring efficacy following therapeutic treatment. The candidate will be trained in various biochemical and molecular techniques, e.g., mass spectrometry, proteomics, and immunoassays. We aim for translational research and the project will involve both exploratory preclinical biomarker work as well as investigating human AD samples. The unit has extensive experience in clinical AD biomarker research and a strong preclinical neuroscience environment.

  • The candidate should hold a master's degree or equivalent in medicine, pharmacy, biology, molecular biosciences, or related disciplines.
  • Experience of working in a biomedical laboratory is highly valuable.
