DDLS Fellows positions: now open for applications

Want to conduct data-driven science in cutting-edge settings? Then apply to the DDLS Fellows positions! The fellows will be recruited under tenure track principles and with a budget of 17 MSEK (to cover salary for 5 years for the DDLS Fellow, two PhDs and two postdocs, as well as running costs). A total of 20 positions will be published over the coming weeks and be open for applications until September 5, 2021.

The SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, now sets out on its mission to recruit and train the next generation of life scientists. In this round of recruitments, the program seeks 20 Fellows within four research areas: data-driven precision medicine and diagnostics, data-driven epidemiology and infection biology, data-driven cell and molecular biology, and data-driven evolution and biodiversity.

As a DDLS Fellow, you will be part of the next-generation of data-driven life scientists and create globally leading computational and data science capabilities in life science in Sweden. You will accelerate the data-driven paradigm shift in life sciences, and conduct research at the global frontline within your field of interest. You’ll also take part in forming a research community of world-leading caliber, and connect with initiatives across disciplines and sectors.

“The tenure-track recruitment packages is by far the most important component of the entire DDLS research program, and the first 20 fellows will have a unique opportunity to help us shape both the program and future of life science in Sweden and the rest of the world. SciLifeLab has managed to attract an impressive pool of talent in the SciLifeLab Fellows program, and we are looking forward to helping support the establishment of another 20 outstanding new research labs”, says Erik Lindahl, Professor at Stockholm University and member of the DDLS steering group.
