Work for LUDC
Lund University Diabetes Centre (LUDC) is one of the largest diabetes research centres in the world with more than 300 members of staff.
LUDC is working towards improved diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diabetes and combines expertise in several fields to achieve this goal.
The research centre gathers expertise in genetics, epidemiology, statistics, bioinformatics, molecular and cellular biology, physiology, clinical diabetes, and endocrinology. We have large unique biobanks and databases with genome-wide data linked to national registries providing information on disease progression and treatment.
LUDC has in-house platforms for most molecular genetics’ methods and metabolomics. Omics-information combined with extensive phenotyping allows a systems medicine approach to dissect the complexity of diabetes. A central theme is to develop precision medicine to improve health and quality of life for patients with diabetes.
The research centre is part of EXODIAB (Excellence of Diabetes Research in Sweden), a strategic research area at Lund University. The aim of EXODIAB is to develop new treatments and drugs to prevent, delay, or cure diabetes. EXODIAB is a joint research initiative in collaboration with Uppsala University.
All positions are regularly posted in the Lund University recruitment system, Varbi.
