The Department of Clinical Neuroscience (CNS) conducts research and education in the field of
neuroscience from the molecular level to the society level. The clinical research and education is conducted in collaboration with other research groups from the Karolinska Institutet, with other universities as well as the Stockholm County Council. Please visit our website for more information: http://ki.se/en/cns/startpage

A doctoral position is an available doctoral education project to which a PhD student is to be recruited. After the selection process the process for admission to doctoral education will commence following a trial period in the lab. An admission decision will not be taken until an individual study plan has been approved by the departmental admission board.
For more information regarding doctoral (PhD) education, see: http://www.ki.se/doctoral.

Research group

The Applied Immunology & Immunotherapy research group conducts a strongly interconnected research programme aimed at using knowledge gained from projects in basic science to applications in a clinical setting. We focus on understanding why chronic inflammatory diseases occur, and then devise ways to prevent or treat them.

The doctoral education project and the duties of the student

In this project the doctoral student will work with a novel principle for immunotherapy in experimental rodent models of Glioblastoma multiforme brain tumours based on adoptive transfer of pre-activated myeloid cells.
The PhD student will work together with a senior postdoc and other PhD students/postdocs with
experimental models of glioblastoma multiforme brain tumours in mice and rats, developing
immunotherapies for treatment of this and other types of tumours, including extensive immunological and pathological assessments of therapy outcome. The PhD student is expected to present scientific data to the research group and in other scientific settings (e.g. international congresses), to assist with general lab housekeeping activities in order to maintain lab equipment functionality and lab space usability.

Entry requirements for doctoral education at KI

To be eligible for doctoral education following requirements has to be met:
General entry requirements
A person meets the general entry requirements for doctoral/third-cycle/PhD education (according to Higher Education Ordinance Chapt 7, section 39) if he/she:

  1. has been awarded advanced/second-cycle/master qualification (i.e. master degree) or
  2. has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second-cycle/master level, or
  3. has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad.

For more information regarding general and specific entry requirements: http://ki.se/en/education/entryrequirements-eligibility-for-doctoral-education

The candidate should have a master’s degree in biomedicine or other similar background, preferably from the last three years.

Skills and personal qualities

It is important that candidates have the ability to work in a group and to be able to communicate in an open and professional manner. The candidate should be fluent in English, both orally and in writing. A genuine high level of curiosity for research in general and in the immunotherapy field in particular is advantageous. Documented experience in immunological assays is of particular significance. Previous experience of experimental animal work and FACS analysis programs is an advantage.

Assessment criteria

A selection will be made among qualified applicants on the basis of the ability to benefit from doctoral education. Karolinska Institutet uses the following bases of assessment:

  • Documented subject knowledge of relevance to the area of research
  • Analytical skill
  • Other documented knowledge or experience that may be relevant to doctoral studies in the subject
    The qualifications of the applicants will be evaluated on an overall basis.

Terms and conditions

The most common way of financial support for doctoral students at KI is doctoral grant the first year and a doctoral studentship (doctoral employment) for year 2, 3 and 4. During the time between recruitment and admission a short-term employment can be offered for up to 6 months.

Application process

An application must contain the following documents in Swedish or English:

  • A personal letter and curriculum vitae
  • A copy of degree certificates and associated certificates
  • A copy of degree projects and any previous publications

The application is to be submitted through the recruitment system MyNetwork….
