Description of the research project/area of research
Translational control of gene expression is emerging as a key mechanism for cancer initiation, progression and metastasis. The project will be focused on identifying mechanisms that allow dys-regulation of mRNA translation in cancer.

Qualifications of the applicant
The ideal candidate is highly motivated, with an outstanding completed PhD thesis and a strong drive for a future career in research. The candidate should be capable of generating novel ideas, acquire knowledge independently and posses sufficient laboratory skills to evaluate and develop new methods. Fluency in spoken and written English is required. At least one first author paper in a high quality international peer-reviewed journal is necessary to be considered. Because we apply bioinformatics/biostatistics for analysis of mRNA translation, knowledge in bioinformatics/biostatistics is an advantage and strong interest required. Experience with molecular biology methods is required and hands-on experience with RNA methods is positive.

To qualify, the applicant must hold a doctor’s degree in molecular biology/RNA biology or similar (or a foreign qualification deemed equivalent to a doctorate). Applicants who have completed their degree no more than three years before the last date for applications should be given priority. Candidates who have completed their degree earlier than this should receive equal priority if special grounds exist.

A scholarship for the pursuit of postdoctoral studies may be awarded to a person who comes from a country outside of Sweden, and whose intent is to stay in Sweden for his or her entire, or partial, postdoctoral education. The head of the department decides whether the applicant’s education and scientific qualifications will be regarded as equivalent to (or higher than) a Swedish doctorate.

Scholarships may not be given to anyone who in the two years before the proposed award of the scholarship has received a salary or remuneration from Karolinska Institutet.

A condition for scholarship for the pursuit of postdoctoral studies is that the scholarship holder is centrally registered as a postdoc.

Information about research scholarship for postdoctoral studies
At Karolinska Institutet, scholarships may only be established for the education of the holder. Educational scholarships are restricted for postdoctoral studies lasting up to two years and exempted from Swedish income tax.
A scholarship for the pursuit of postdoctoral studies may be awarded for up to two years in the five years following the public defence (or equivalent) of a doctoral thesis. The scholarship amount is approved for up to six months at a time and is paid monthly.

The main objectives of the Department of Oncology-Pathology are basic, translational and clinical research and educational activities related to cancer. Approximately 300 people from over 40 nations are currently working at the department. 37 research groups with various cancer research profiles are involved and we have around 120 PhD students. The department of Oncology-Pathology is responsible for undergraduate courses in Pathology, Oncology and Forensic Medicine for medical students, as well as Tumor Biology courses for biomedicine students and pathology courses for opticians.

Karolinska Institutet is one of the world�s leading medical
universities. Its mission is to contribute to the improvement of human health through research and education. Karolinska Institutet accounts for over 40 per cent of the medical academic research conducted in Sweden and offers the country�s broadest range of education in medicine and health sciences. Since 1901 the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has selected the Nobel laureates in Physiology or Medicine.
