We are an interdisciplinary research team at the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) at Karolinska Institutet (KI) and SciLifeLab in Stockholm, Sweden (https://www.hausserlab.org).
Within a tumor, individual cancer cells adopt different phenotypes. These differences support tumors in progressing from local to invasive to metastatic and help them become resistant to therapy. We are interested in mapping the evolutionary constraints on the diversity of cancer cell phenotypes, and in exploring how these constraints can be exploited to treat heterogeneous tumors (Hausser&Alon, Nature Reviews Cancer 2020).
Our lab combines a broad spectrum of skills, from experimental to data analysis to theoretical. You will bring in data analysis and theory skills. Your responsibilities will include:
Expertise in the following fields are not absolute requirement but will be appreciated:
In addition, your personal skills will be highly valued.
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. Applicants who have not completed a doctorate at the end of the application period may also apply, provided that all requirements for a completed degree are met before the (intended) start date of the post doctoral education.
The head of the department determines whether their previous training and scholarly qualifications correspond to a Swedish doctorate or higher.
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.
An application must contain the following documents in English or Swedish:
The application is to be submitted on the Varbi recruitment system.
