Wanna collaborate with us?


We are always interested by highly motivated young scientists at the Master, PhD and Post-doctoral level! Applicants with an international research experience and strong background in molecular biology/immunology/developmental biology/bioengineering are encouraged to apply. You will be most welcome in a young, friendly and dynamic environment. See below positions detailed. Please provide your CV, motivation statement and up to 3 referees at: paul.bourgine@med.lu.se



The lab: The successful candidates will be part of the novel laboratory for Cell, Tissue and Organ engineering. The laboratory is part of the Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM LU), at the Lund Faculty of Medicine (https://www.med.lu.se/english). Focusing on regenerative medicine (regeneration, replacement and repair), WCMM LU is part of a national effort to strengthen Sweden as a world-leading life science nation (https://www.med.lu.se/wcmm).

Our lab aims at deciphering the cellular & molecular mechanisms occurring during phases of bone formation/repair. Using state-of-the-art 3D culture systems, death-inducible human mesenchymal lines and tissue engineering protocols, we focus on studying processes of cartilage/bone/bone marrow establishment in human(ized) contexts. Compiled knowledge will be used for the design of cell-based but cell-free extracellular matrices, to be used as smart-materials for skeletal repair. As such, the lab covers both fundamental and translation research aspects. More information available on our website: www.bourginelab.com


The University: The lab located within the BioMedical Center at the Faculty of Medicine, and is part of Lund University (Sweden). The university was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. Lund University has 42 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and MalmöThe Faculty of Medicine as part of Lund University is responsible for education and research within medicine and healthcare. Our academic programs are closely linked with the healthcare system and are firmly anchored in the faculty’s strong research tradition. Our research spans a broad field within experimental preclinical research, near-patient clinical research and health sciences research. The Faculty of Medicine, with its 1,800 employees and 2,700 students in Lund and Malmö, is a knowledge-intensive meeting place for students, teachers and researchers from all over the world. Easily accessible via Copenhagen airport (35min), Lund is a dynamic and well-connected city in the heart of the Scandinavian hub.
