Offer Description

Do you want to contribute to better health for all?

The Division of Insurance Medicine, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, is a leading center for research about sickness absence, morbidity, work, and life situation. We offer an engaging and international research environment where you will have the opportunity to contribute to high quality research at international level. The complex research questions demand an interdisciplinary approach, and people with many different backgrounds work in the projects. We also have comprehensive collaborations within Sweden as well as internationally in European countries, USA, Canada, and Australia, including EU-financed projects.

Your mission

We are looking for a postdoc who will work in different projects about associations between life situation, morbidity, and work ability. We conduct both observational and intervention studies.

The position involves participating in, planning, and conducting studies. Your duties will primarily involve analysing data, some data management, and writing manuscripts and grant applications. You are encouraged to develop your own ideas and work towards advancing your own independent line of research within the area.

The position is a fulltime position for 2 years, with the possibility for extension.

Your profile

To be eligible for employment as a postdoctor a doctoral degree or a foreign degree deemed to be equivalent to a doctoral degree is required. This eligibility requirement must be fulfilled at the latest at the time of the employment decision. It is considered as an advantage if you have completed your doctoral degree within the last three years, if there are special reasons, your degree may have been completed earlier.

Documented experience of epidemiological studies is required for the position. Experience of working with large databases of register and/or survey data as well as analyses in, e.g., SAS, STATA, SPSS, or R, are meriting for the position. Experience of working with nationwide Swedish registers and research within the insurance medicine area are particularly meriting. Good knowledge of spoken and written English is essential, and knowledge of Swedish is meriting. The applicant should show a high degree of conscientiousness, initiative, and independence. The work will be conducted in collaboration with the PI and other project members, and places high demands on flexibility and good collaborative abilities.

A creative and inspiring environment with wide-ranging expertise and interests. Karolinska Institutet is one of the world's leading medical universities. At Karolinska Institutet, we conduct successful medical research and hold the largest range of medical education in Sweden. At KI, you get to meet researchers working with a wide range of specialisms and methods, giving you ample opportunity to exchange knowledge and experience with the various scientific fields within medicine and health. It is the crossover collaborations, which have pushed KI to where it is today, at the forefront of global research. Several of the people you meet in healthcare are educated at KI. A close relationship with the health care providers is important for creating groundbreaking top quality education and research. Karolinska Institutet is also a state university, which entitles you to several benefits through our collective agreement.
