Postdoctor In Medical Radiation Sciences
The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 56 000 students and 6 600 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.
The Institute of Clinical Sciences is one of six Institutes within Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg. We conduct research and education that puts people’s health and quality of life in focus. We represent 16 different research areas and are divided into four sections. Through a fruitful collaboration with the healthcare and Sahlgrenska University Hospital, we have developed joint projects and meeting places that benefits both health care and research
At the department of medical radiation sciences, research on various aspects and uses of radiation are included. Ionizing radiation is a part of radiation therapy and diagnosis with x-rays and radioactive substances, and non-ionizing radiation is included in diagnosis with ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. In the environmental radiology radiation sources in our environment and transport of radioactive materials in biological systems are studied. Knowledge of the impact of radiation on living cells and organisms (radiation biology) is important for assessing the radiation risks.
