Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Pan-Hammarström (PHA)

The Department of Biosciences and Nutrition performs research and education in several areas of medical science including bioorganic chemistry, molecular endocrinology, cancer biology, functional genomics, systems biology, epigenetics, structural biochemistry, cellular virology, and nutrition. It offers an excellent international research and working environment, including around 300 scientists, students, administrative and technical personnel. The Department resides in the new biomedical research building Neo, aimed at being a creative and open environment that enables meetings, synergies, and exploration of areas of mutual interest across disciplines.

Research group
The research group of Professor Qiang Pan-Hammarström conducts research on several aspects of human immunology with a strong focus on developmental immunology, immunotherapy and pathologies associated with the immune system. Qiang Pan-Hammarström’s research group: https://ki.se/en/bionut/research-group-qiang-pan-hammarstrom

Duties
The projects within Dr. Pan-Hammarström’s group focus on the molecular mechanism of immunoglobulin class switch recombination (CSR), genetics of primary immunodeficiency and B cell lymphomagenesis. The available postdoctoral position deal with:

1). Identification of new forms of primary immunodeficiency through linkage analysis and exome sequencing, with focus on late B cell deficiencies.
2). Functional characterization of patients with defects in late B cell development. This may involve using iPSC as models to study B cell development in healthy individuals and in patients with primary immunodeficiency.

3). The fellow is expected to assume a major role in the writing of scientific publications and grant applications.

Entry requirements
Scholarships for postdoctoral qualification can be established for foreign researchers who place their qualifications in Sweden. 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 within a four year period following the receipt of a doctoral degree or equivalent.
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.

The head of the department determines whether their previous training and scholarly qualifications correspond to a Swedish doctorate or higher.

Type of scholarship
A scholarship for carrying out postdoctoral research can be granted for a maximum of two years within a four year period following the receipt of a doctoral degree or equivalent. 

The amount is tax free and it is set for twelve months at a time, paid out on a six months basis. In exceptional cases, shorter periods may be acceptable.

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

    1. Curriculum vitae and qualifications
    2. A complete list of publications
    3. A summary of current work (no more than one page)
    4. Two recommendation letters, including at least one from the PhD supervisor

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