Karolinska Institutet

At the division of Obstetrics and Gynaecology we perform advanced research within advanced reproductive medicine. Within this subject the lab of Dr Lanner focus on early human embryo development.

A postdoctoral position in genome engineering in bovine embryos is available with Fredrik Lanner’s laboratory. The laboratory is investigating how the early human embryo develops during the first week, from fertilization to implantation in the uterine wall. We have established single cell transcriptional road-map of early human embryo development and are now initiating functional gene studies using CRISPR genome editing in the early embryo. The postdoc will initiate genome editing in bovine embryos to elucidate how lineage specification and pluripotency is controlled in the early embryo. We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic candidates with suitable background for such studies.
