Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience, Ibanez

The laboraroty of professor Carlos Ibanez is now seeking a talented and enthusiastic researcher with expertise in medicinal chemistry and chemical biology to advance drug discovery efforts and investigations on death receptor signaling and physiology in cancer and neuronal cells. The research entails medicinal chemistry studies on small molecules targeting the p75NTR death receptor identified in our ongoing screens, with the objective to improve the pharmacokinetic and biological properties of chemical leads. 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 medicinal chemistry and chemical biology is a requirement for consideration.

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.

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

  • 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
  • A complete list of publications
  • A summary of current work (no more than one page)

Applicants should arrange to have at least two confidential letters of reference sent independently by referees to this email address.

Funding is available for an initial period of 3 to 4 years, starting during the first half of 2019.
