Postdoctoral Fellowships

With this postdoctoral programme SRP Diabetes aims to support the next generation of exceptional young scientists within the diabetes area, including both experimental and clinical research. To promote cross-fertilization between research environments, we encourage scientists wishing to pursue postdoctoral training in a different university from where they carried out doctoral studies.

The Strategic Research Programme for Diabetes (SRP Diabetes) at Karolinska Institutet is funding a prestigious fellowship programme for postdoctoral research fellows. The Programme is focused on research in diabetes and its comorbidities.

Call for postdoc application open

Based at Karolinska Institutet, the fellow will undertake a cutting-edge research project, mentored by world-leading researchers in the field of diabetes. The fellowship is fully funded, and salary is provided for a 2-year period. It is our intention that the positions will start in the autumn of 2022, though some flexibility with the start date might be possible.

Principal Investigator: Anna Krook

Project Title: Exosomal miRNAs and effects on skeletal muscle metabolism.
