Postdoctoral Position in mitochondrial genetics

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr Aleksandra Trifunovic at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, to investigate molecular mechanism of aging driven by increased amount of mtDNA mutations. Research will relate to our ongoing efforts to understand the mechanisms of cellular and organismal aging induced by increased amounts of somatic mtDNA mutations and as a follow up work on mtDNA mutator mice, a model for premature ageing. Part of this project will include work on recently developed C. elegans model. The successful applicant will be working in a newly assembled Center for Mitochondrial Medicine at Karolinska Institute.

We welcome enquiries from prospective applicants with a good background in mitochondrial research. Experience in work with mice or C. elegans would be a distinct advantage.

Application should contain CV together with the names and addresses of two referees and be sent by e-mail to:
