We are looking for a highly motivated recently graduated (within 3 years) top-level PhD with a strong background from molecular-, stem cell-, brain tumor- and neurobiology fields. Hands on experience working with reprogramming, brain tumors and in vivo models are meriting.

We are using transcription factor reprogramming of human and mouse brain tumors with the aim to translate this technique into clinical application. Practical work comprises in vitro reprogramming of brain tumor cell lines and primary cells, IHC as well as in vivo stereotactic surgery.

We offer the opportunity to be part of cutting-edge research and a vibrant scientific community, at an internationally renowned stem cell center. We will be continuously evaluating applications until the position is filled. Starting date is available immediately but flexible.

Interested candidates should send cover letter, CV, list of publications and contact information to three references to Johan Bengzon ( and Henrik Ahlenius (
