Om jobbet

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in Chemistry for a fixed-term position at the School of Science and Technology.

Subject area

The subject area for this position is Chemistry (within Metabolomics / Exposome Research / Systems Medicine).


We seek a postdoctoral researcher within the field of computational metabolomics and exposome research. Research is linked to the new and ongoing research projects funded by the Swedish Research Council, Novo Nordisk Foundation, Formas, and Academy of Finland. The main overarching theme of these projects is investigations of the links between exposures to environmental chemicals and the pathogenesis of certain metabolic and immune-mediated diseases, such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and type 1 diabetes. The successful candidate will be embedded within the systems medicine research team:

supervised by Professors Matej Orešič and Tuulia Hyötyläinen.

Relevant recent publications by the research team:

  • McGlinchey A, et al. Prenatal exposure to perfluoroalkyl substances modulates neonatal serum phospholipids, increasing risk of type 1 diabetes. Environ Int. 2020; 143: 105935.
  • Sinisalu L, et al. Early-life exposure to perfluorinated alkyl substances modulates lipid metabolism in progression to celiac disease. Environ Res. 2020; 188: 109864.
  • Sen P, et al. Metabolic alterations in immune cells associate with progression to type 1 diabetes. Diabetologia. 2020; 63(5): 1017-1031.
