About the


The Wallenberg Centres for Molecular Medicine are key elements in a national effort to reposition Sweden as a world-leading life science nation. The initiative was taken by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and is a joint venture with the Universities and University Hospitals of Gothenburg, Lund, Umeå and Linköping. SciLifeLab in Stockholm and Uppsala serves as a research partner and unique core facility for the four Centres.

Through repeated calls in the upcoming years with tenure track research positions – Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellows – we will recruit translationally oriented research groups. The groups will be centered on internationally recruited young scientists of outstanding potential and funded at a globally competitive level through very generous starting packages with the possibility of promotion to Senior Lecturer within four years. Each of these groups will synergize with pre-existing excellent research environments as well as strong clinical collaborators, promoting ground-breaking research in molecular and translational medicine. Together, we will rise to future challenges within molecular life science in order to improve human health.
