The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) is a department with a strong focus on basic science. CMB conducts research and education in cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, stem cell biology, cancer and infection biology.
A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Thomas Perlmann at the department of Cell and Molecular Biology at Karolinska Institutet. The lab is located at Biomedicum, a new research building with excellent infrastructure and world leading research in many areas of biomedical science.
The lab’s focus is on the development and maintenance of dopamine neurons within the ventral midbrain. We are unraveling the signaling and transcriptional regulation that govern the specification, differentiation and maintenance of these cells. The studies have relevance for regenerative medicine and neurodegeneration in relation to Parkinson’s disease and other brain disorders. We are using mouse genetics and other methods including single cell RNA sequencing in our studies. In collaborative projects we also focus on regenerative strategies such as stem cell therapy, and on the maintenance of dopamine neurons in the human brain.
A postdoctoral position (scholarship) is now open in projects devoted to questions concerning the development and subtype specification of dopamine neurons, and mechanisms underlying aging and dopamine neuron maintenance.
The applicant should be a highly motivated individual who can collaborate and function well in a team. We are looking for an individual with a PhD in neuroscience, stem cells or developmental biology, and with skills preferably in more than one of the following areas: human embryonic stem cells, single cell RNA-sequencing and bioinformatics, mouse genetics, and histological methods. Previous experience with mouse animal work is also desirable and appropriate certificate for mouse animal work (FELASA C or equivalent) is a merit. Excellent English oral and writing skills is a requirement.
Scholarships for postdoctoral qualification can be established for foreign researchers who place their qualifications in Sweden. The purpose of scholarships for postdoctoral qualification is to promote internationalization and contribute to research qualification after a doctorate or equivalent.
A scholarship for carrying out postdoctoral research can be granted for a maximum of two years within a four year period following the receipt of a doctoral degree or equivalent.
To be eligible for a postdoctoral scholarship, the person must have obtained a doctorate or a foreign degree deemed to be equivalent to a doctorate. Applicants who have not completed a doctorate at the end of the application period may also apply, provided that all requirements for a completed degree are met before the (intended) start date of the post doctoral education.
The head of the department determines whether their previous training and scholarly qualifications correspond to a Swedish doctorate or higher.
Type of scholarship
The amount is tax free and it is set for twelve months at a time, paid out on a six months basis. In exceptional cases, shorter periods may be acceptable.
An application must contain the following documents in English or Swedish:
- A complete curriculum vitae, including date of the thesis defence, title of the thesis, previous academic positions, academic title, current position, academic distinctions, and committee work
- A complete list of publications
- A summary of current work (no more than one page)
The application is to be submitted on the Varbi recruitment system.
