Postdoctoral Position in Epithelial Stem and Tumor Cell Biology (Scholarship)

The Genander lab is located at Karolinska Institutet, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) in Stockholm, Sweden. CMB is a department with a strong focus on basic science. Research groups are organized into three thematic programs: Developmental Stem Cell Biology, Cell Biology and Infection and Cancer. CMB conducts research and education in cell biology, molecular biology, developmental biology, stem cell biology, cancer and infection biology.

Focus of the lab

The Genander lab is looking for a talented and motivated postdoctoral fellow to join the team. We are interested in defining mechanisms regulating epithelial stem cells during tissue homeostasis and tumor formation. The current project will be centered around citrullination, a posttranslational modification influencing protein and histone tail properties, focusing on skin tumor initiation and development.

Entry requirements

Experience in mouse models is a requirement. Experience and interest in high-throughput genomic technologies involving next-generation sequencing is preferred. The working language is English, and the applicant is expected to be proficient in both spoken and written English.

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.
