Experienced Bioinformatician with on HIV bioinformatics and microbiome
Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?
Department of Medicine, Huddinge
The Department of Medicine, Huddinge, conducts preclinical and clinical research in a variety of areas and undergraduate and graduate education.
The department is internationally oriented and consists of seven units with a total of nearly 60 research groups, including three research centres.
The Division of Infectious Diseases conducts preclinical, translational, clinical and epidemiological research projects. Its laboratory is located within the newly build facilities at Alfred Nobels Allé 8 (ANA Futura Laboratory), Campus Flemingsberg, Karolinska Institutet. The announced position will be placed in Professor Anders Sönnerborgs research group, which has a focus on pathogenesis, antiretroviral treatment, including HIV drug resistance, and HIV epidemiology including the role of the microbiome in the pathogenesis. The group is working closely with research groups at the Division of Clinical Microbiology KI and beyond. The day-to-day activities are often integrated. The translational research is a strong component involving basic molecular, virological and immunological investigations with close ties to the HIV Unit at the Department of Infectious Diseases, Karolinska University Hospital. Prof Sönnerborg is involved in several international collaborations with focus on HIV, Covid-19 and microbiome. We publish 10-15 well cited (current h-index 60), articles per year in renowened journals.
