Fellows program


SciLifeLab Fellows program

In order to further strengthen the research environment SciLifeLab regularly recruits young, talented research leaders to become SciLifeLab Fellows. Each fellow is recruited by one of our host universities and receives funding from them.

The first call for SciLifeLab Fellows was opened in 2013 and has attracted both Swedish and international talents. During 2016 the program will be broadened to include fellows employed by other universities than the host universities, in order to expand the SciLifeLab network nationally.

Strategic recruitments

SciLifeLab also made a number of strategic recruitments 2010-2013. The purpose was to recruit excellent research leaders with good networking abilities and whose research areas strengthened and complemented those already represented at SciLifeLab. The recruitments have been made both nationally and internationally to attract the greatest talents. The researchers are financed, mostly by funding of Strategic Research Areas (SFO in Swedish) from the host universities.
