Three Doctoral Researchers

who are highly motivated and talented to join our vibrant research community in Biocenter Oulu and in a Research Council of Finland project within the ECM-Hypoxia Research unit at the Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine. 

The ECM-Hypoxia research unit (ECMH RU) consists of five internationally strong research groups which perform globally recognized research on the extracellular matrix and hypoxia in health and diseases. We are equipped with leading-edge infrastructure in all fields of cell and structural biology. We are a highly international and interdisciplinary team.

About the job

The current projects aim to study new molecules interacting in hypoxia-signaling and metabolism, especially obesity. Our previous work shows that certain enzymes of the hypoxia pathway may act as central switches that could connect the networks for oxygen and nutrient supply. However, whether, and how, these switching mechanisms work is as yet unknown. This will be investigated in the work of this project.

If you are curiosity-driven and eager to interact with biochemists and structural biologists this might be an interesting offer for you.
