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 and Duties
We are seeking talented and enthusiastic researchers with expertise in medicinal chemistry, chemical biology and cell signaling to advance drug discovery efforts and investigations on death receptor signaling and physiology in cancer cells. The research entails studies on the p75NTR death receptor using chemical, molecular and cellular biology methods in cell culture models, as well as preclinical mouse models of melanoma and glioma, with the objective to identify and characterize promising chemical leads for the treatment of these cancers. Please see Goh et al. (2018) Cell Chemical Biology 25, 1485–1494 for a representative publication of this work (carlosibanezlab.se/Publications).

Entry requirements
Candidates will be accepted at the postdoctoral level with a PhD awarded within the last 3 years. Strong and documented expertise in 1) molecular and cellular methods as applied to studies of cell signaling, OR 2) medicinal chemistry and chemical biology, is a requirement for consideration. The successful candidate is expected to be sufficiently independent to formulate questions, design experiments and perform research. Excellent command of the English language is reuqired.

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

  1. 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
  2. A complete list of publications
  3. A summary of current work (no more than one page)
  4. Statement of research interests

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