Karolinska Institutet,

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.

Division
A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Thomas Perlmann at the department of Cell and Molecular Biology at Karolinska Institutet. The group is interested in how specific cell types in the brain are generated. We are primarily focusing on dopamine neurons and we are unraveling the signaling and transcriptional regulation that govern the specification, differentiation and maintenance of these cells. The studies have resulted in the identification of several transcription factors with key roles in these processes.

Moreover, we are also interested in regenerative medicine in relation to Parkinson´s disease and other brain disorders. We are using mouse genetics and methods such as single cell RNA sequencing in our studies. In collaborative projects we also focus on development and maintenance of dopamine neurons in the human brain. 

We now have an opening for a postdoc in projects devoted to questions concerning the potential for neurogenesis of dopamine neurons in the adult brain.

Entry requirements
The applicant should be a highly motivated individual who can collaborate, communicate 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, mouse genetics, bioinformatics and histological methods.

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.

The head of the department determines whether their previous training and scholarly qualifications correspond to a Swedish doctorate or higher.

Type of scholarship
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. 

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.

Application process
An application must contain the following documents in English:

  1. Curriculum vitae and qualifications, presented in accordance with Karolinska Institutet’s qualifications portfolio (http://ki.se/meritportfolj )
  2. A complete list of publications
  3. A summary of current work (no more than one page)

The application is to be submitted on the Varbi recruitment system.
