A postdoctoral fellowship in platelet research is available at the Department of Biomedical and Clinical sciences, Linköping University. The university has 32,000 students and 4,000 employees, for more information see .

Fellowships may only be granted to foreign citizens with a PhD acquired in another country than Sweden. The fellowship amount is 300 000 SEK (ca 28 000 USD/26 000 Euro) tax free per annum for up to two years.

We are looking for a qualified person with interest in hemostasis and platelets, to join our research team. Platelets play a crucial role in hemostasis as well as thrombosis. We are interested in understanding the physiological mechanisms regulating platelet activation with special focus on thrombin receptors, see our homepage We have a multidisciplinary group including researchers and clinicians. The postdoctoral fellow will be eligible to apply external grants and have access to departmental and institutional career development programs, such as grant writing workshops.

A PhD/or equivalent degree granted by a university outside of Sweden is required. The candidate should be highly motivated and have documented research experience in one or more of these methods/ areas, (1) flow chamber models of thrombosis, (2) animal thrombosis models, (3) fluorescence and confocal microscopy, (4) flow cytometry and calcium measurement, (5) pulldown and mass spectrometry, (6) data analysis using Python and/or R language.
