KTH Data-driven Life Science Fellow Candidate Seminars

March 8, 2022 @ 09:30 17:00 CET

These public presentations are linked to the recruitment of two tenure-track assistant professor positions in data-driven life science (DDLS) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology: “Data-driven Precision Medicine and Diagnostics” at the Department of Protein Science, School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Health, and “Data-driven Cell and Molecular Biology” at the Department of Applied Physics, School of Engineering Sciences.

The presentations are given by the invited applicants for the corresponding positions. Each presentation is 25 min followed by 5 min Q&A.
