Postdoctoral Fellowship/Researcher

Offentlig forvaltning

We seek a highly motivated scientist for a 3-year postdoctoral fellowship position or researcher position (post-postdoc position) in a multidisciplinary team at the KG Jebsen Centre for B-cell malignancies, Department of Immunology at Oslo University Hospital (OUH)-Rikshospitalet.

The successful applicant will use high-dimensionality analyses of cells and advanced serum proteomics to define mechanisms and actionable targets in autoimmune and immune mediated bleeding disorders that have potentially life-threatening disease course, relapses and refractory disease. 

Research Framework
We have had a leading role in the field with publications in NEJM and EHJ (first to discover, characterize, treat, and name the syndrome vaccine-Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT)); and in Lancet describing therapy and outcome for immune thrombocytopenia, ITP (PROLONG study). We build on established framework, multi-centre network, established core competencies and demonstrated ability to quickly translate our results into new trials: Most recently, the groundbreaking DART trial (2021-) where highly pre-treated and multi-refractory ITP patients receive daratumumab (anti-CD38). The work includes followup of severe adverse effects of vaccination and pathogenesis of autoimmune bleeding disorders. The work will be embedded in established studies on immune responses in cancer, autoimmunity and infection.

Oslo University Hospital is a workplace with great diversity. We believe this is essential to perform the tasks required of us. Therefore, we pursue diversity among our job applicants and encourage everyone to apply regardless of who you are and what background you have.
