Personalized medicine has the potential to change the way we think about, identify and coordinate health problems. It is already having an exciting impact on both clinical research and patient care, and this impact will grow as our understanding and technologies improve. Therefore, we seek a new colleague at Professor level within this field. 

The Department of Health Science and Technology carries out multidisciplinary research, and teaching in the area of health science and technology. The department as more than 250 employees and is responsible for more than 1700 students. More than 100 PhD students are enrolled in the doctoral school affiliated to the department. Department of Health Science and Technology has extensively developed their facilities for laboratory based medical research, after starting the medical program 10 years ago. Facilities as classified laboratories for gene technology, human pathogens, viral vectors, isotope work and an animal facility are present. Furthermore, the department is well equipped for medical research with the state-of-art molecular and cellular biology equipment in addition to microtomes and microscopes. The department also has laboratory facilities for Multichannel EEG and EMG analysis, electrical stimulation, prosthetics and assistive robotics, ECG-analysis, ultrasound, 3-d movement analysis, respiratory and circulatory examinations, sensory and motor functions analysis.

In 2000, AAU established a new five-year master program within biomedical engineering, in 2006 within medicine with industrial specialization, in 2007 within Sports Science and in 2010 within medicine. In 2019 a master within Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy was established. All educations at AAU are based on problem-based teaching.

We expect the candidate to have a professional experience in fields related to personal medicine such as genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, bioinformatics, or pharmacogenomics. A candidate with experience in human clinical studies will be preferred.
