. Post-Doctoral position - Otília Vieira Lab

A Posdoctoral research contract is available in the Lysosomes in Chronic Human Pathologies and Infection Lab at CEDOC. The posdoc will work on the pro-atherogenic potential of a novel family of oxidized lipids, identified by shotgun lipidomics in cardiovascular disease patients, in cells and animal models. The potential on these lipids in prognosis and diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases will also be assessed. This project will be carried together with cardiologists from Hospital Santa Cruz, Carnaxide (Lisbon area) and a German Lipidomics company.

To apply send your CV, a motivation letter and the name of 3 referees to otilia.vieira(at)nms.unl.pt.
