Post Doctor at Lund University

Lund University has an opening PhD position in epidemiology. The funds for this position are available for three years. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before November 05, 2018.

The Faculty of Medicine is a part of Lund University, and is responsible for education and research within medicine and healthcare. Our academic programs are closely linked with the healthcare system and are firmly anchored in the faculty's strong research tradition. Our research spans a broad field within experimental preclinical research, near-patient clinical research and health sciences research. The Faculty of Medicine, with its 1,800 employees and 2,700 students in Lund and Malm, is a knowledge-intensive meeting place for students, teachers and researchers from all over the world.

The postdoctoral post is located at the Center for Primary Care Research (CPF). CPF is a dynamic research platform at the Clinical Research Center (CRC), a teeming and inspiring scientific environment located in Malm’s hospital area. CPF is a collaboration between Region Skne and Lund University. Research conducted by CPF is funded by, among others, ALF funding Region Skne, National Institutes of Health (NIH), the European Research Council (ERC) and the Swedish Research Council. The CPF’s mission is, with primary care as its base, to conduct world-leading research through an active exchange of knowledge between academia and primary care. The research is conducted in collaboration with researchers at Swedish and international universities and concerns major diseases: cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and mental health as well women’s and children’s health, neighbourhood areas and migration. CPF's remit extends across Skne via a number of academic medical knowledge centers (AKCs) at the regional health centers.

We are looking for a well-qualified postdoc with an interest in how migration affects integration and mental health. The position is located within Professor Jan Sundquist’s research team and in close cooperation with Kristina Sundquist’s research group. These research groups have a long-term cooperation with a number of leading international universities, such as Stanford University, Mt Sinai, and Kyoto. This postdoc will be financed within the framework of an ERC advanced grant.

This is an employed position for two years' duration.

The focus of this employment is how migration affects integration and mental health. You are expected to contribute to the issues raised in the project, which is supported by the ERC. This happens via work with several large and unique epidemiological data sources that originate from the national population and health records in Sweden. You must also have an interest in writing scientific articles because the results of our research will be published in international peer reviewed journals. The work tasks also include some supervision of doctoral students, students, resident physicians and other primary care staff, which is a qualification for, e.g., a future associate professor

Applicants need to have obtained their PhD no later than within the last three years. Your doctoral dissertation may have a focus on medicine or economics but we also welcome applicants from all other relevant disciplines, e.g. epidemiology, health economics and national economics, etc. Experience working with national population and health registries is a merit but not a requirement.
