Postdoctoral Researcher in Metabolic Engineering in RNA virus infection

  The Department of Laboratory Medicine consists of seven divisions and is engaged in advanced basic scientific, clinical, and epidemiological research. The department is also one of the largest education departments at Karolinska Institutet. A postdoctoral position is now available at the Systems Virology Lab, Division of Clinical Microbiology. The research The Systems Virology lab aims to identify the molecular mechanism of host-viral response against RNA viruses using multi-omics technologies and experimental assays. We aim to identify the components of the immune response that are required for natural immune protection and linked with disease severity that can be translated into the future development of vaccine and antiviral strategies against emerging and re-emerging viruses. The research team has both bioinformatics and experimental teams and works in an interdisciplinary research environment. The present postdoctoral position is towards understanding the host-viral interacti

PhD student position in cancer computational biology

  To be a doctoral student means to devote oneself to a research project under supervision of experienced researchers and following an individual study plan. For a doctoral degree, the equivalent of four years of full-time doctoral education is required. The research group The Hausser lab researches quantitative principles in tumor biology. We do so along two research lines. (1) Within a tumor, single cancer cells express different genes. These differences facilitate resistance against anti-cancer therapy because a given therapy may fail to eliminate the diversity of cancer cells. We are interested in mapping the evolutionary limits of this diversity, and in exploring how to exploit these limits to treat heterogeneous tumors. (2) We research equations that state how key tumor properties relate to each other: cellular composition of the tumor, heterogeneity of cancer and immune cells found in the tumor, spatial organization, tumor growth rate, shedding rate of metastatic cells, and s

Postdoctoral researcher to study synergistic effects between DNA damaging cancer therapeutics and targeted agents for an industrial collaboration

  The Helleday laboratory, at the Department of Translational Medicine and Chemical Biology, is located at SciLifeLab and consists of about 30 researchers, doctoral students, and postdocs. Our goal of the business is to improve current cancer treatment by utilizing defects in cancer cells to tailor specific drugs against all types of cancer, with minimal side effects. Our work includes both basic research and translational research and we have several collaborations between different disciplines. The research group is multidisciplinary with expertise in cell biology, biochemistry, drug chemistry and pharmacology from both academia and industry. Your mission Cancer is often characterized by genome instability which is one of the enabling characteristics of cancer. Along the progression of cancer, mutations occurring in the genome maintenance and surveillance systems endanger the integrity of the genome. This genome instability results in new mutations and genomic rearrangements drivi

Postdoctoral Researcher in Risk and Resilience in Neurodevelopmental Conditions using the ICF system

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher with a strong passion for conducting research that strives to contribute to the quality of life and mental wellbeing of individuals with Neurodevelopmental Conditions. As part of a European consortium - Risk and Resilience in Developmental Diversity and Mental Health (R2D2-MH) – we are conducting research which aims to improve the mental health outcomes of young people with these challenges. The postdoctoral position will examine the factors related to risk and resilience for adverse health and psychosocial outcomes in by developing International of Classification of Functioning (ICF) core sets for risk and resilience in this population. In addition, the postdoc interacts with researchers in the European Consortium and contributes to other work packages investigating resilience. The research group KIND , Karolinska Institutet Center of Neurodevelopmental Disorders, located in the heart of Stockholm, is a leading competence center for research

Postdoctoral Researcher in Molecular and Translation Lung Cancer Research

  We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher (Scholarship) with an interest in lung cancer biology/therapy. You should hold great prior knowledge in tumor biology and it is preferred that you already are familiar with extracellular vesicles (EVs) research. When joining us you will work in a multidisciplinary environment, close to frontline preclinical/translational/clinical lung cancer research but also in context of radiation therapy as well as with our partners on microchip technology for EVs characterization .
