Karolinska Institutet,

The Department of Laboratory Medicine consists of 6 divisions and is active in many areas of Laboratory Medicine. The department is involved in advanced basic scientific, clinical and epidemiological research. The department is one of the largest departments of education at Karolinska Institutet.

Division
The Division of Clinical Microbiology conducts preclinical, translational, clinical and epidemiological research projects. The laboratory is located within the newly build facilities at Alfred Nobels Allé 8 (ANA8), Campus Flemingsberg. This new laboratory, ANA Futura, is creating a leading translational integrated research environment equipped for cutting-edge research, where the boundaries between institutions and clinics are torn down and researchers collaborate on the basis of common research profiles. The announced position will be placed in Professor Anders Sönnerborgs research group, which has a strong focus on pathogenesis, antiretroviral treatment and cure of HIV infection. The experimental research is focused on the interaction between HIV and antiretroviral drugs as well as mechanisms of viral latency.

Duties
The applicant will be joining the research group of professor Anders Sönnerborg and mainly work on viral latency and viral drug resistance in patients with human immunodeficiency infection as well as studying regulation of HIV latency using state of the art multiomic strategies (including single cell assays with combined epigenetic/transcriptomic/proteomic tools).

Our group has access to a large patient material and collaborates with a large number of similar centers around the world. We publish 15-25, well cited (current h-index 58), papers per year in renowened journals.

Entry requirements
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
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.
