Postdoctoral studies in cell migration (scholarship)

Karolinska Institutet, Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Strömblad (SST)

The Department of Biosciences and Nutrition performs research and education in areas of medical science including molecular endocrinology, cancer biology, functional genomics, systems biology, epigenetics, structural biochemistry, cellular virology, and nutrition. The department offers an international study and working environment, including around 300 scientists, students, administrative and technical personnel.

Description of project and work.
This postdoc project will be conducted in the research group of professor Staffan Strömblad ( Our group is interested in cancer biology, with particular emphasis on cell signaling and cell-matrix interactions. The project will focus on how cancer cell migration is controlled by the underlying cellular machinery and also participate in a European Union- Horizon 2020 supported network, Multimot, aiming at the standardization of cell migration research. The project will contain a combination of wet lab experiments, primarily cell handling and confocal microscopy, as well as advanced computational data analyses and handling of large datasets. This postdoc project provides opportunities for growth and development as an independent researcher, as there will be possibilities for initiating new research directions.
