Novo Nordisk is funding a prestigious fellowship programme at Karolinska Institutet for postdoctoral research fellows. The programme is focused on research in diabetes and its comorbidities, endocrinology and metabolism. It aims to support the development of a new generation of exceptional young early career diabetes researchers, who will become future leaders in the field, while further developing scientific excellence within diabetes and ultimately improving the lives of patients. As part of this programme, we are looking to recruit 3 outstanding postdoctoral research fellows.
Based at Karolinska Institutet, fellows will undertake a cutting edge research project, mentored by world-leading researchers in the field of diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism. In addition, it is anticipated that during the course of the fellowship, fellows will have the opportunity to spend up to 3 months in the research laboratories at Novo Nordisk outside Copenhagen, Denmark. Thus, fellows will gain insight into research conducted in both academia and industry. In order to increase coherence around the Fellowship programme, a number of events will be held throughout the year such as high profile lectures, symposia, etc. which the fellows will attend, both at Karolinska Institutet and at Novo Nordisk.
The fellowships are fully funded and salary is provided for a 3 year period. It is our intention that the positions will start in the autumn of 2018, though some flexibility with the start date might be possible.
