Search for Junior Investigators in Human Immunology and Infectious Diseases Research

Center for Infectious Medicine (CIM) at Karolinska Institutet is conducting an open search for new outstanding junior investigators in the research area of human immunology and infectious diseases. Research at CIM is focused around studies of the human immune system and infection-immunity. Furthermore, CIM takes advantage of the unique assets that the Karolinska University Hospital offers in terms of clinical collaborations and supply of rare clinical material.

The Center is currently organized around 14 independent research groups and has since its inauguration in 2002, over the years, grown and gained national and international recognition. In 2018, CIM will relocate to larger newly renovated laboratory facilities. We are in relation to this conducting an open search for potential new Junior Investigators. A central aim and core value of the Center is to provide an environment and platform for the fostering of new generations of research leaders in the fields of human immunology and infectious diseases.

CIM offers a dynamic and integrated environment where research groups share office space, laboratory space, cutting edge facilities and equipment. Collaborations between the research groups represent a core value. Our commitment towards collaboration and scientific excellence in all respects gives CIM scientists a significant advantage as they work across disciplines and utilize shared knowledge, to pursue big ideas for transformational discoveries.
