(01) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral (PhD) student position in translational breast cancer research

The doctoral education project will focus on patients with breast cancer treated with preoperative (neoadjuvant) therapy (NAT), and specifically in studies of residual disease found at surgery after NAT using a database of all patients treated with NAT in Stockholm since 2007, constructed with data from the regional population-based breast cancer registry. The prognostic value of clinical and pathological factors of the residual disease will be studied using regression analysis. Additionally, archival tumor material (both pretreatment biopsies and surgical specimens) of the same patients will be retrieved from the tissue biobank and potential prognostic biomarkers will be studied using immunohistochemistry and molecular biology methods (e.g. DNA sequencing).

Deadline : 02.Feb.2023

(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral (PhD) student position in functional oxylipidomics of allergy and asthma

The successful applicant will belong to the research group of Craig Wheelock in the Unit of Integrative Metabolomics in the Institute for Environmental Medicine. Research in the group focuses on the fundamental question of “What is Health?”. Towards that end, we develop quantitative molecular profiles of human health – so-called molecular phenotyping. To explore this physiological space, we use mass spectrometry to investigate the intersection between endogenous metabolism (metabolome), environmental exposures (exposome) and gut bacteria (microbiome). We focus on identifying chemical patterns that enable precision medicine-based approaches to treating respiratory diseases. In particular, we study the production of lipid mediators from dietary omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and explore their relationship with the pathobiology of inflammation.

(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral (PhD) student position in aging genetics

Objective and hypothesis: To identify non-coding RNA-linked to progeria disease pathways, which can pave the way to new, more efficient therapeutic approaches based on ncRNA-neutralizing agents (including antisense oligos). The hypothesis is that ncRNAs functionally contribute to the pathological progeria hallmarks in the vascular wall and the development of cardiovascular disease. The vascular pathology in progeria includes extensive loss of vascular smooth muscle cells, intima thickness, media calcification and adventitia fibrosis. We will benefit from a widely used progeria model that shows systemic and relevant physiological expression levels and accumulation of progerin. Modern sequencing technologies, will be employed to identify ncRNAs in the cardiovascular system and oligonucleotide-based drugs against the most promising ncRNAs will be validated for their causal involvement in disease pathology and as novel therapeutic agents.

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral (PhD) position in immunology

B lymphocytes express highly polymorphic receptors encoded by gene segments that recombine in a combinatorial manner during lymphocyte development. The Karlsson Hedestam group combines next generation sequencing of expressed B cell receptor repertoires with functional studies of monoclonal antibodies to investigate how our genetic background influences our B cell response to infection and vaccination. The PhD student will work primarily with wet lab techniques, such as monoclonal antibody isolation, antibody engineering, protein production and purification, as well as preparation of libraries for B cell repertoire sequencing and germline gene inference, and analysis of such experiments as part of an international consortium

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral (PhD) student position in epidemiology

The overall aim of this PhD project is to increase the understanding of determinants of- and pathways to longevity and to an exceptionally long life. This will, among other approaches, be done by analyzing centenarians in comparison to individuals who die before age 100 in prospective studies in two large data materials. The student is expected to conduct epidemiologic research within ageing epidemiology and in the intersection of epidemiology and demography, with a specific focus on exceptional longevity. You will analyse large and complex data and it is therefore a merit if you have skills in computational statistics and programming. Another merit is knowledge and training in epidemiological theory and methods. The student will have strong support by a team of supervisors with expertise in epidemiology and quantitative methods, demography, and population studies, and in geriatric medicine. There might also be an opportunity to spend some time abroad with our collaborators.

Deadline : 23.Jan.2023

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral (PhD) position in neuroepidemiology

We are looking for a doctoral student to join our research group at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institutet, where we perform research on aging and age-related diseases using a variety of epidemiological and molecular epidemiological methods. The research group of aging epidemiology is involved in a wide variety of research projects, including molecular and genetic epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology, as well as twin and family studies. The group contains about 20 people – from professor to PhD- and master students – with six different PI´s collaborating on many research topics within aging. Research interests are biological aging, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, polypharmacy in the old and many more.

About The Karolinska Institute, Sweden – Official Website

The Karolinska Institute sometimes known as the (Royal) Caroline Institute in English is a research-led medical university in Solna within the Stockholm urban area of Sweden. The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The assembly consists of fifty professors from various medical disciplines at the university. The current rector of Karolinska Institute is Ole Petter Ottersen, who took office in August 2017.

The Karolinska Institute was founded in 1810 on the island of Kungsholmen on the west side of Stockholm; the main campus was relocated decades later to Solna, just outside Stockholm. A second campus was established more recently in Flemingsberg, Huddinge, south of Stockholm.

The Karolinska Institute is Sweden’s third oldest medical school, after Uppsala University (founded in 1477) and Lund University (founded in 1666). It is one of Sweden’s largest centres for training and research, accounting for 30% of the medical training and more than 40% of all academic medical and life science research conducted in Sweden.

The Karolinska University Hospital, located in Solna and Huddinge, is associated with the university as a research and teaching hospital. Together they form an academic health science centre. While most of the medical programs are taught in Swedish, the bulk of the PhD projects are conducted in English. The institute’s name is a reference to the Caroleans.
