PhD Scholarship in Biological Physics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position in cell biology. The funds for this position are available for two years. Applicants should apply before January 31, 2019.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

The microscope has undergone a revolution in the last years, a development that has received much attention and, e.g. been awarded the Nobel Prize. Despite all the advanced microscopy techniques developed, there is still a great need for instrument development in order to meet the demands of biological imaging from cell biology and biophysics. There is a great interest for studies of biological processes in the living cell with higher resolution, in both space and time, than possible with current microscopy methods.

We have received funding from the Foundation for Strategic Research, SSF, for the development of a new type of fast 3D microscopy and are now hiring PhD students who wants to participate in this project. Applicants should have a passion for technology development and have a particular interest for optics and physical measurement techniques as well as applications in biology and medicine. The project is in close cooperation with researchers at UCSC, USA.

Our laboratory is located at SciLifeLab ( ) and consists of a mix of physicists, biologists and physicians. At SciLifeLab we also operate the national infrastructure for super-resolution microscopy.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.
