Project Description

  • We are looking for a Research Scientist having experience with technologies such as immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization and autoradiography. 
  • Experience with mass spectrometry for proteomics and clarity would also be beneficial. From a research perspective you have worked within the CNS field, and it is an advantage if you have an understanding of psychiatric disorders and ideally have a thorough understanding of neuronal circuits underlying such diseases. 
  • The ability to understand the translation of genetic data to biological functions and understand anatomical CNS translation from rodent to humans will also be beneficial.
  • Our department, Synaptic Transmission, In Vitro is engaged in early to late stage drug discovery within CNS disorders. 
  • We are dedicated to identifying novel drug targets based on in depth understanding of the neurobiological processes underlying disease etiology and pathology. 
  • The Department currently consists of 8 research academics, 5 laboratory technicians, 2 post docs, 1 PhD student and 1 master student.

Your job
  • By contributing with your highly qualified knowledge around histology/anatomy you will be part of a team effort aiming at translating basic science into applied research. The ultimate goal of your effort is to validate and progress CNS target opportunities from an in vitro perspective. 
  • Your daily job will primarily consist of lab work and technician supervision to support our pre-clinical research projects with information about quantification and distribution of targets. 
  • This also implies how targets are affected by pharmacological interventions or animal models of disease phenotypes. 
  • You will also be involved in identification and assessment of new targets based upon your knowledge around immunohistochemistry and protein-protein interactions.
  •  You will interact with other scientific disciplines internally and with external partners thereby contributing to a collaborative environment.

Our preferred candidate holds the following professional and personal competences:
  • Holds a Ph.D. level degree and a few years of post-doctoral experience within histology/anatomy and related techniques with strong track record
  • Experience within CNS research with focus on neuronal circuits is an advantage
  • Experience with gene and protein expression in native tissue, mass spectrometry for proteomics and protein-protein interactions is an advantage
  • Experience in managing external collaborations including CRO work is an advantage
  • Is proactive, efficient, and has an independent work style with a goal-oriented and flexible mind-set aiming at working with highest possible scientific standard in a timely manner
  • Has a strong and active external scientific network
  • Is a strong communicator and team player in multidisciplinary project teams
  • Fluent in oral and written English.

We offer
We are an internationally oriented group that offers excellent laboratory facilities, an open atmosphere, highly qualified colleagues and a warm social climate.

About us:
  • Our company  is a global pharmaceutical company specialized in psychiatric and neurological disorders. 
  • For more than 70 years, we have been at the forefront of research within neuroscience. 
  • Our key areas of focus are depression, schizophrenia, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. 
  • An estimated 700 million people worldwide are living with psychiatric and neurological disorders and far too many suffer due to inadequate treatment, discrimination, a reduced number of working days, early retirement and other unnecessary consequences.
  • Every day, we strive for improved treatment and a better life for people living with psychiatric and neurological disorders – we call this Progress in Mind. 
  • Our approximately 5,300 employees in 55 countries are engaged in the entire value chain throughout research, development, production, marketing and sales. 
  • Our pipeline consists of several late-stage development programmes and our products are available in more than 100 countries.
