Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Immunology

  The Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology (MTC) at Karolinska Institutet conducts research and teaching within immunology, infection biology, cell biology and cancer. MTC have about 40 research groups and our key words are multidisciplinary, bridging, national and international collaborations. The research group of Dr Lisa Westerberg seeks a Postdoc (computational/experimental) in the field of computational Immunology to study immunodeficiency diseases and lymphoma. The Westerberg lab has a long track record in deciphering molecular mechanism for development of severe immunodeficiency diseases in children ( https://ki.se/en/mtc/lisa-westerberg-group ). Ongoing research in the Westerberg lab is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms for development of immunodeficiency diseases with high incidence of lymphoma. The Westerberg lab uses a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach, working closely with research groups at KI, Karolinska University Hospital, Scienc

Postdoctoral studies in the neuronal control of body weight homeostasis

  The Furlan Lab aims to identify and understand the central and peripheral circuits regulating food preference, homeostasis, and body weight regulation, with a focus on obesity. To do this, we employ an interdisciplinary approach, using state-of-the-art techniques, such as transcriptomics, circuit-tracing methods, and functional manipulation strategies in the mouse model. We believe that interrogation of these understudied circuits will critically advance our understanding of how the brain and body achieve important physiological processes, and will contribute to enabling the development of novel approaches to treat obesity and metabolic syndrome. Division The Furlan lab is part of the Neuroscience department, in the Biomedicum, at Karolinska Institute research campus, a vibrant, highly interactive, internationally-recognized center for medical research with outstanding research infrastructure. The department is formed by more than 200 researchers, investigating the most diverse biolo

Postdoctoral position in Onur Dagliyan’s Group

  Applications are invited for a fully-funded postdoctoral position in  Onur Dagliyan’s Group   at the   division of Molecular Neurobiology.   The lab’s research focus is to uncover experience-driven protein signaling mechanisms in the mouse brain by developing new protein engineering technologies. The group is building a new interdisciplinary research program as there is an immense potential for new fundamental insights to be discovered Research Team and the Division Neuronal activity dependent molecular signaling processes are central for brain development and plasticity. These molecular events form the mechanistic basis of complex neural computation, learning and memory. The Dagliyan laboratory focuses on specific molecular events in neurons happening at different time scales, starting from the immediate modifications at the synapse, to longer time scale molecular events including gene expression, which are key processes for the behaviorally induced plasticity of neuronal circuits.

Postdoctoral studies in toxicology (scholarship)

  Programmed cell death is one of the most successfully developed area in biomedical research. Disturbances in this process are associated with pathogenesis of various disorders, including cancer. The search for targets in tumor cells, which activate their elimination, is essential for increasing the effectiveness of anticancer therapy. Active, motivated, and willing to focus on these research topic postdocs are welcome. Division For many years the Division of Toxicology has focused on understanding of mechanisms of various cell death modalities and using this knowledge in order to understand the pathophysiology of cell-death associated diseases. We are looking for a qualified and enthusiastic person to join the research group of Professor Boris Zhivotovsky. The group is well-known in the field and published extensively in high impact journals. The candidate will also have a chance to collaborate with other groups within Karolinska Institutet and outside of Sweden.    Duties Many genes
