Open positions

We are looking for project students, Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows interested in undertaking research as part of our research group. We have several different projects for undergraduate and master's students that can be tailored to your interests. We are also looking for potential PhD students and post-doctoral fellows with an interest in molecular biology, neurobiology, bioinformatics, behaviour, clinical trials, human genetics, pharmacology and physiology. We strive for a research environment offering many opportunities for professional development; and career development plans are agreed upon for each individual researcher.

Our research climate is characterised by innovative interdisciplinary research and high productivity. Our research into obesity, anorexia and the central regulation of food intake and reward has attracted major international attention (in the media and in terms of many citations of our work), while we are highly ranked by the Swedish Research Council and other evaluation bodies.
