Postdoktortjänst i geriatrisk epidemiologi

The postdoc researcher will conduct epidemiological research on depression in relation to neurodegenerative disorders in the longitudinal population studies of older adults included in the National E-Infrastructure on Aging Research (NEAR). NEAR consists of 15 databases derived from longitudinal cohort studies located in different geographical areas in Sweden. The databases participating in NEAR include more than 180,000 people over age 50.

The Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS) conducts world leading research in aging, dementia, epidemiology and care sciences. This research extends from basic molecular and cell levels to clinical research and societal studies. NVS educates almost a third of KI students at basic and advanced levels. The Department has approximately 450 employees and a revenue 2019 of 497 million SEK. It comprises seven divisions, located at Campus Flemingsberg and Campus Solna.

Aging Research Center (ARC), a division within NVS, is located at KI Campus Solna, Stockholm. It is a multidisciplinary academic environment, representing medicine (e.g., neurology, epidemiology, psychiatry, geriatrics), psychology (e.g., cognition, structural, functional, and molecular brain imaging), and social gerontology (e.g., sociology, public health, social epidemiology, social work). The center has around 75 employees, it has a strong focus on research with unique research resources, such as large-scale longitudinal studies and nationwide registries.

At the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at Sahlgrenska Academy, research in large areas, from molecule to human, is conducted. The Institute has five departments: pharmacology, physiology, health and rehabilitation, clinical neuroscience and psychiatry and neurochemistry. The unit carries out world-leading epidemiological research in late life health. The unit also manages the Centre for Aging and Health - AgeCap, a national FORTE centre, which is part of the University of Gothenburg's initiative UGOT Challenge. The studies conducted at the unit include a wide possibility of using different methods from social and psychological factors to biomarkers and genetics.
