Karolinska Institutet, Institutionen för neurovetenskap, INCF

The Department of Neuroscience includes several research groups working on different aspects of nervous system function, both under normal conditions and in various disease states. Research projects include a broad range of studies on the molecular and cellular levels, networks of neurons, and the organization of the nervous system as a whole. The Department has a flat organization with 40 researchers, of which 24 are full professors and 65 PhD students.

Teaching represents a fundamental activity at the Department, which participates in several undergraduate courses and postgraduate education programs. Each year approximately 15 students receive their PhD from our Department and many of our graduates have gone onto distinguished careers in the academic or private sector.

Join the INCF Secretariat at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

INCF is an international organization launched in 2005, following a proposal from the Global Science Forum of the OECD to establish international coordination and collaborative informatics infrastructure for neuroscience. INCF is hosted by Karolinska Institutet and the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. INCF currently has Governing and Associate Nodes spanning 4 continents, with an extended network comprising organizations, individual researchers, industry, and publishers.

Our mission is to facilitate the work of neuroscientists around the world, and to catalyze and coordinate the global development of neuroinformatics. We aim to foster scientific collaboration, advance training in neuroinformatics, and act as an independent international facilitator. The INCF Secretariat supports the Nodes with project management, outreach, and administration of community-driven projects regarding standards and best practices for data and code reuse, integration of infrastructures, reproducibility, and interoperability issues in neuroscience.
