Our lab combines a broad spectrum of skills, from experimental to data analysis to theoretical. You will bring in data analysis and theory skills. Your responsibilities will include:

  • analyzing large-scale multi-dimensional data, performing evolutionary simulations, building bioinformatics pipelines and developing quantitative theories of tumor architecture
  • collaborating with lab members
  • authoring manuscripts and presenting findings at conferences
  • punctually helping with lab organization
  • applying for funding to help support your research and prepare your next career step

Your profile

You bring:

  • a PhD degree with strong bioinformatics component
  • a strong quantitative background, for example in the form of a bachelor or masters in areas such as bioinformatics, physics, engineering, statistics, mathematics, …
  • experience with large-scale data analysis and multivariate statistics
  • proficiency in data analysis environments like R or Python, and in scripting (for example linux shell)

Expertise in the following fields are not absolute requirement but will be appreciated:

  • single-cell sequencing technologies
  • evolutionary theory, population genetics
  • cancer biology, immunology

In addition, your personal skills will be highly valued.

Entry requirements

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 and can be established for foreign researchers who have obtained a PhD outside Sweden less than 4 years ago.

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.
