Doctoral student position with a doctoral grant in the 'RAPID'-project
Karolinska Institutet, Institutionen för medicin, Solna, Rheumatology research unit
The Department of Medicine, Solna, is one of the largest departments at Karolinska Institutet. The department consists of several units that are separated into different research groups. The core activities of the department are research, doctoral education and undergraduate education for medical and biomedical students. The research has three main profiles: allergy, cardiovascular medicine and inflammatory diseases.
This PhD position is within the ‘RAPID’ project, which is funded by an EU FP7 Marie Curie ITN grant. RAPID aims to provide a significant contribution to the understanding of the pathological processes that trigger initiation and progression of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and chronic periodontitis, by establishing a first class, dynamic training programme for early career researchers who will be able to advance both fields by working across sectors and disciplines. RAPID’s objectives include attracting the best European
early career researchers into this area by providing carefully designed and integrated research projects and structured training delivered by the highest-quality European scientists.
