Call for Academic and Industrial PhD Projects in Data-driven Life Science

The SciLifeLab & Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) announces calls for PhD projects within academia and industry.

DDLS is a 12-year initiative funded with a total of 3,1 billion SEK from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The purpose of the program is to recruit and train the next-generation of data-driven life scientists and to create globally leading computational and data science capabilities in Swedish life science.

One of the programs main objectives is to establish a research school for 260 PhD students, within academia and industry. The aim of the DDLS Research School is to educate highly skilled and competent professionals who will make a significant contribution to Swedish life science field.

The PhD students will be recruited to a host university/organization/company in the Swedish life science sector, linking them with strong local research environments as well as with the national DDLS program.

The DDLS program will focus on four strategic research areas of data-driven research: cell and molecular biology, evolution and biodiversity, precision medicine and diagnostics, epidemiology and biology of infection. We are now launching a competitive grant call for the PIs to suggest exciting data-driven research projects and training opportunities for PhD students in the four strategic areas.
