We are al­ways in­ter­ested in hear­ing from en­thu­si­astic post-doc­toral sci­ent­ists and stu­dents.


Often cited as the land of a thousand lakes, Finland is a progressive European country with an unrivalled quality of life. These characteristics extend to scientific research and education, where the University of Helsinki has a longstanding reputation in neuroscience and mitochondrial medicine.

Our laboratory is located in the Faculty of Medicine, at Biomedicum Helsinki based in the Meilahti Medical Campus. This spacious development affords us direct access to the state-of-the-art equipment for our research requirements in cell biology, biochemistry and translational neuroscience. Our laboratory is also well networked: we have major collaborative links internationally, as well as with other groups in Medicine/Life Sciences. This is a fantastic location for a period of productive and focused scientific research, in a burgeoning field!

Prospective Post-doctoral candidates are always encouraged to enquire about joining the lab. Candidates who wish to pursue a competitive fellowship are particularly welcome to get in touch, well in advance of application deadlines. Please send a research statement of interests and CV detailing publications and referee contact details.

Opportunities for internships and studentships will open in 2018, but enquiries are welcome year round.
