Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine at Linköping University

Linköping University, the University Hospital and the County Municipality of the region Östergötland, has received a generous donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg to launch one of the four Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM) nodes in Sweden. Our node will focus on the medicine-technology interface, and build upon our existing strengths in research within medical technology, materials science and bioengineering.

We are looking for new Group Leaders

WCMM in Linköping will recruit a total of 15 new research teams. Currently, we are looking for four new Group Leaders (tenure-track) at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. Candidates should have a research profile focused on basic biomedical research, clinical research, or biomedical engineering. Currently, we are particularly interested in researchers in the area of Digital Pathology.

We are seeking investigators with a strong track-record of publications, external funding, independence, and a high degree of international mobility. Each Group Leader will receive a highly competitive start-up package.

To obtain further information, please submit a letter-of-intent describing how your experience and training meet the qualifications for the Wallenberg Center at Linköping University, including a curriculum vitae, research plan, publication list, and names and contact information for three professional references to: Director.WCMM@liu.se

More about WCMM

The remarkable progress that we have seen with respect to our understanding of biology and medicine during the last 25 years, and the substantial development of new diagnostics and therapeutics is not primarily the result of progress in only one specific research area. Rather, it is the dynamic and increasing interplay between medicine, biology, chemistry, technology, materials science, bioinformatics, computation and imaging that has fueled much of the discovery process. It is reasonable to assume that we have only seen the beginning of this interactive medicine-technology avalanche.
