Essential for the role


PhD in a relevant discipline (area of Bioscience)

Relevant experimental in vivo experience in the use of animal models, animal handling and in vivo techniques within the respiratory area

Experience in various cellular and molecular biology techniques for the measurement of protein expression and activation (eg ELISA,western blot, FACS, Meso Scale Discovery (MSD) technology platform), and RNA (qRT-PCR, RNASeq)

Ability to independently design, perform and analyse in vivo experiments in rodents and interpret experimental data

Good understanding of pharmacology, physiology and immunology

Understanding and experience with molecular biology

Understanding of statistical methods, quality control and data reporting/archiving

In addition, you possess excellent written and oral communication skills in English as well as great problem-solving skills related to in vivo research and data analysis. You are a team player with a positive and goal oriented attitude . You are organized and incorporates the views of others in your communication and collaboration.

Desirable for the role


Respiratory disease knowledge, including target and mechanism knowledge (COPD, asthma, cough, IPF, tissue regeneration) and basic understanding of Pharmacokinetics

Experience/knowledge in the field of antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) delivery technology

Valid education required for compliance to work with live animals in Sweden

Experience in writing ethical applications for animal work in Sweden

Knowledge in immunohistochemistry, histology scoring and histomorphometry

Good written and oral communication skills in Swedish
