Young Investigator Program
Within the young investigators programme, successful candidates is provided with four-year internationally competitive funding packages to pursue independent research such that they can rapidly build up internationally competitive research groups. The programme is built on the “hire the best” principle, and the selection among candidates will be made by an international evaluation committee. We particularly encourage female applicants with a translational approach, to strengthen the link between basic and clinical science. After the end of the four-year period, the young investigators are evaluated according to the new career system at Karolinska Institutet for promotion to the next step in their career.
