Eight Postdoc projects will receive funding from the SciLifeLab committee at Stockholm University. The aim of the initiative is to stimulate collaborations between principal investigators at SciLifeLab and other parts of the Stockholm University campus as well as between research groups from different disciplines.

Each funded project has a main applicant from Stockholm University, and one or more co-applicants from other universities and institutes, including Karolinska Institutet, KTH, Uppsala University and Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet.

After thorough review by external experts, a total of eight collaborative projects, encompassing 17 principal investigators, were awarded:

Rachel Foster (DEEP)/Fabien Burki (SciLifeLab/UU), Marc Friedländer (SciLifeLab/SU)/Love Dalén (NRM/CPG), Erik Lindahl (SciLifeLab/SU)/Michael Landreh (KI)/David Drew (DBB), Mattias Mannervik (MBW)/Sebastian Deindl (SciLifeLab/UU), Christos Samakovlis (SciLifeLab/SU)/Joakim Lundeberg (SciLifeLab/KTH), Anna Sobek (ACES)/Kristina Jonas (SciLifeLab/SU), Erik Sonnhammer (SciLifeLab/SU)/Claudia Kutter (SciLifeLab/KI) and Neus Visa (MBW)/Vicent Pelechano (SciLifeLab/KI).

The Postdoc positions are covered by Stockholm University – SciLifeLab SFO funding for two years.
