The Wallenberg Centre for Molecular and Translational Medicine is part of a national effort to reposition Sweden as a world-leading life science nation.

Through repeated calls in the upcoming years with tenure track research positions we will recruit up to ten new research groups, centered around internationally recruited young scientists of outstanding potential.

The recruited researchers will be funded at a globally competitive level through very generous four-year starting packages, including funding for two postdoctoral researchers, two PhD students and operating costs.
