Three Positions as Scientists/Research Project Leaders in Biomedicine
Karolinska Institutet, Sweden
Karolinska Institutet is a university with an exclusive focus on
medicine and one of the largest centers for biomedical research and
education in Northern Europe. With nearly 6,000 students, more than
2,000 PhD-students and about 3,500 employees, Karolinska Institutet
is responsible for more than a third of all university-based biomedi-
cal research and about 30% of the medical training in Sweden. Award-
ing the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has given Karolinska
Institutet an invaluable contact network throughout the medical sci-
Karolinska Institutet has initiated a program to recruit, support and
promote outstanding young scientists expected to become future lead-
ers in biomedical research. The entire program consists of ten pro-
jects with five-year grants in a wide range of areas. In the present
phase of the program, we welcome applications for three positions as
SCIENTISTS/RESEARCH PROJECT LEADERS IN BIOMEDICINE. This phase of the
program is open to scientists in all different areas of biomedicine.
At Karolinska Institutet research in e.g. structural biology, genet-
ics and genomics, cell and developmental biology, molecular medicine,
neuroscience, cancer biology, infectious diseases, allergies and im-
munology, is well developed but applicants can be in any area of bio-
The program is open to younger scientists from all over the world.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree (not older than 10 years) and ap-
propriate post-doctoral experience. We are encouraging applications
from scientists who have a strong research record and are able to
provide a dynamic leadership. Successful candidates are expected to
develop independent lines of research that will strengthen and com-
plement related research programs at Karolinska Institutet.
Karolinska Institutet will fund each project for five years with a
budget of up to SEK 2 million per year (approximately US$ 187,315),
including salaries and running costs. The project leaders are ex-
pected to attract a substantial amount of external funding. After
four years, an external peer review committee will evaluate all posi-
At this stage, we invite interested candidates to submit pre-
proposals. These should consist of the following documents in Eng-
a) a brief CV (1-2 pages)
b) a summary of research program (1-2 pages)
c) a brief summary of previous research accomplishments (1-2 pages)
d) a list of 10 selected original papers.
A search committee appointed by the Board of Research will evaluate
all pre-proposals. Applicants who are considered particularly strong
candidates with regard to creativity, independence, leadership and
future research potential will be invited to submit complete applica-
tions. The final selection will be based on interviews with the can-
didates and recommendations from an external peer review panel.
