The Petter Brodin’s research group located at Science for Life Laboratory in Stockholm is a part of the Unit of Clinical Pediatrics, Karolinska Institutet. The group develops and applies experimental and computational research methods for systems-level analyses of human immune systems. The aim of the team is to understand immune systems’ variation in health and disease and the regulatory mechanisms underlying such variation and adaptation to environmental influences. Another important focus is the development of immune systems in early Life.

The responsibilities of this candidate in the lab will involve a literature study towards the establishment of a database of the pharmacological effects and side-effects of chemotherapeutic agents on the human immune system. This is an important part of a project called Immune Systems Against Cancer in Children, ISAC headed by the Brodin lab in collaboration with the pediatric oncology unit. To understand the effects of the chemotherapeutic regimens immunomonitoring is performed but the existing and previously reported effects of such drugs are complex and must be collated and systematically reviewed which is the focus of this project.

Entry requirements
The successful candidate should have experience in pharmacology and pharmacovigilance work. It would be particularly important for the candidate to have experience with drug literature review and analyses of reported side effects for a range of drugs. Understanding of immune cells and proteins and the use of databases is beneficial. It is important for the candidate to be fluent in both written and oral Swedish and English in order to follow drug regimens in Swedish and international treatment protocols as well as reported side effects.

A selection will be made among qualified applicants on the basis of the following criteria:

• Some documented experience in the aforementioned task areas.

• Prior experience and knowledge in pharmacology and pharmacovigilance.

• Expressed interest in the Project.

The qualifications of the applicants will be evaluated on an overall basis.
