Applications for PhD Positions

There are currently no open positions for PhD-studies in the lab. PhD student positions are announced on an irregular basis (approximately once per year depending on the lab's funding situation). Future positions will be announced on this website and on the Karolinska job opportunities page ( Please note that there is no central graduate school admission system at the Karolinska Institutet. Instead, positions are initiated and funded by individual laboratories.
