A 3-year full-time position as postdoctoral fellow (postdoc) is available in the research group “Laboratory of Experimental Cardiology” led by Associate Prof. Magnus Aronsen and supported by Prof. Finn Olav Levy at Department of Pharmacology, Oslo University Hospital.

The group studies phosphodiesterase regulation of ion transporters and channels in cardiomyocytes, aiming to provide future therapeutic strategies for cardiac diseases.

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc candidate with an interest in cardiac biology, pathophysiology and translational research. The candidate will work on projects to study potential new treatment of especially ventricular arrhythmias and heart failure. The project will mainly focus on whole cell patch clamp in cardiomyocytes from normal hearts and various animal models of cardiac disease. The candidate or other group members will perform fluorescence imaging in a state-of-the-art setup, PLA assays, superresolution imaging and other molecular techniques in combination with various in vivo experiments.  

The candidate is expected to work with national and international collaborators, within an enthusiastic research environment that offers an exciting possibility to combine ambitious scientific projects with active career development at international level for the hired candidate. 

Oslo University Hospital is a workplace with great diversity. We believe this is absolutely crucial to solving the tasks required of us. We therefore want this diversity to be reflected among the applicants for our positions and encourage everyone to apply regardless of who you are and what background you have.


  • PhD degree or equivalent, preferably within cardiovascular science, physiology or pharmacology.
