(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral studies (scholarship) in investigating the effect of microbiota-derived lipids on the gut mucosa
Dietary fatty acids are metabolized by the gut microbiota into downstream lipid mediators that can exert potent biological functions in pro- and anti-inflammatory processes. Recent studies have demonstrated a role of these gut microbial-derived products in several pathologies. However, little is known about the effects of these novel mediators upon their local environment in the gut. Studies will focus on the role of these metabolites in intestinal development and barrier function in vivo. The project will employ a combination of in vivo zebrafish-based models, small intestine organoids from mouse isolates and high-throughput platforms to interrogate the function of microbiota-derived lipid metabolites in the modulation of intestinal development. Additional studies may explore the production of lipid mediators by specific microbial strains using mass spectrometry. This project will apply cutting-edge in vivo tools to investigate how microbial-derived lipid mediators modulate intestinal homeostasis and physiology.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral researcher in molecular chaperone treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
Protein misfolding and aggregation is a cause of disease, and self-assembly into amyloid fibrils is linked to different devastating human diseases including AD, which poses an urgent social-economical challenge for the society. Major research efforts have been undertaken to understand the disease pathophysiology, and to develop disease-modifying therapies, but novel approaches are urgently needed. BRICHOS is present in proteins that harbour a region with high propensity for amyloid formation, and the role of this chaperone domain is to protect these amyloidogenic regions from harming cells. Notably, mutations in the BRICHOS domain can lead to lethal disease. Recombinant BRICHOS domains also recognise “non-client” amyloid peptides linked to different human diseases, for example AD. Further, the BRICHOS domain passes the BBB which makes it a realistic and attractive agent to harness for various applications in neurodegenerative disorders.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher in Health Economics evaluating colorectal cancer screening
The primary purpose of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is to reduce death from the disease by finding the cancer at an early curable stage, but also to reduce the incidence of the disease by removing potential precursors (adenomas). In Sweden, until recently, there has been only one regional program for organized population-based CRC screening covering approximately 25% of the Swedish population. Starting in 2008, the screening program of Stockholm-Gotland invites men and women ages 60-70 (no exclusions) to submit stool samples every two years for detection of occult blood and individuals with a positive test are referred to a diagnostic follow-up colonoscopy. There is a lack of colonoscopy resources, and our hypothesis is that with an individual risk prediction model for CRC, the re-invitations to screening after a negative test or surveillance after screening colonoscopy could be tailored and, hence, generate a more cost-effective program with limited side-effects for the screening participants. As a first step we are currently evaluating the effectiveness of the ongoing program on mortality and incidence and the overall objective of this postdoctoral project is to evaluate different health economic aspects of the program, e.g., its cost-effectiveness and cost of illness. Other health economic aspects are being discussed.

About The Karolinska Institute, Sweden – Official Website
The Karolinska Institute sometimes known as the (Royal) Caroline Institute in English is a research-led medical university in Solna within the Stockholm urban area of Sweden. The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The assembly consists of fifty professors from various medical disciplines at the university. The current rector of Karolinska Institute is Ole Petter Ottersen, who took office in August 2017.
The Karolinska Institute was founded in 1810 on the island of Kungsholmen on the west side of Stockholm; the main campus was relocated decades later to Solna, just outside Stockholm. A second campus was established more recently in Flemingsberg, Huddinge, south of Stockholm.
The Karolinska Institute is Sweden’s third oldest medical school, after Uppsala University (founded in 1477) and Lund University (founded in 1666). It is one of Sweden’s largest centres for training and research, accounting for 30% of the medical training and more than 40% of all academic medical and life science research conducted in Sweden.
The Karolinska University Hospital, located in Solna and Huddinge, is associated with the university as a research and teaching hospital. Together they form an academic health science centre. While most of the medical programs are taught in Swedish, the bulk of the PhD projects are conducted in English. The institute’s name is a reference to the Caroleans.
