Postdoctoral studies in Normal and Aberrant Hematopoiesis

Karolinska Institutet (KI)

Solna, Sweden

The Department of Medicine, Solna, is one of the largest departments at Karolinska Institutet. The department consists of several units that are separated into different research groups. The core activities of the department are research, doctoral education and undergraduate education for medical and biomedical students. The research has three main profiles: allergy, cardiovascular medicine and inflammatory diseases.

Duties
Assistant professor Joakim Dahlin recently established a research team at the Department of Medicine, Solna, Karolinska Institutet. The laboratory’s main aim is to decipherer normal and aberrant hematopoiesis with focus on mast cell differentiation. The research is performed in an interdisciplinary setting with strong collaborations with clinical departments as well as national and international research groups. Key technologies applied to primary samples from healthy subjects and patients with mast cell-related hematologic diseases include single-cell transcriptomics, FACS sorting, cell fate assays, and methods to genetically manipulate cells. We are now seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic person, who wishes to lead projects on mast cell differentiation in normal and aberrant hematopoiesis.

Entry requirements
Applicants need to demonstrate a strong competence in running projects independently but also show excellent abilities for teamwork and cooperation within a dynamic group of scientists with broad expertise and from different nationalities. Proven ability to write scientific articles and orally present results is required. Excellent communication skills in English are needed, as the group has an extensive network of international collaborations. 

One or more of the following skills are also required:

  • - Experience with advanced multicolor flow cytometry
  • - Experience with performing FACS, including single-cell sorts, without supervision
  • - Experience with processing cells for RNA sequencing
  • - Experience with bioinformatical analysis

Experience with mast cell biology is an advantage but not a requirement.

Qualified to be employed as a postdoctor is one who has obtained a doctorate or has equivalent scientific competence.

Application process
An application must contain the following documents in English or Swedish:

  • A cover letter summarizing your research interests, previous experience, and motivation for applying for the position (maximum one page).
  • A complete curriculum vitae, including date of the thesis defence, title of the thesis, previous academic positions, academic title, current position, academic distinctions, and committee work
  • A complete list of publications
  • A summary of current work (no more than one page)

The application is to be submitted on the Varbi recruitment system.
