Qualification Details

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.

Responsibilities/Job Description

We are looking for a candidate who has a PhD in bioinformatics, computer science, data analysis or similar field. The candidate is highly motivated and independent with experience in next-generation sequencing data analysis, computational genomics, medical statistics, computational biology and/or imaging analysis. The project combines single-cell, multi-omics data with large scale human genetics to investigate the cellular origin of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Alzheimers’ disease (AD). The postdoc candidate will cooperate closely with researchers in the team as well as with our collaborators and participate in projects that involves data analysis, visualization, and development of new computational methods for processing and analysis of large-scale omics data. We welcome applications from candidates with pure computational background and those combining experimental and theoretical approaches.

About the Department

The successful candidate will join in the Applied Immunology & Immunotherapy group with dr. Sebastian Lewandowski.

The team is part of the Karolinska Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis (KNIMS) network which gathers around 40 researchers working on different aspects of the pathogenesis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and other neurodegenerative diseases, including genetics, epidemiology, immunology and epigenetics, with excellent clinical cohorts and experimental models. The Applied Immunology & Immunotherapy group is physically located at the Center for Molecular Medicine, a translational medical center with ~500 researchers working on complex diseases, and with extensive national and international collaborations. The Applied Immunology & Immunotherapy group studies why chronic neurodegenerative diseases occur, and then devise ways to prevent or treat them, applying a range of molecular immunological techniques, experimental models and patient cohorts.
