Institutet conducts research and teaching in immunology, infection biology,
cell biology and cancer. Key words are multidisciplinary, bridging,
translational, national and international collaborations
Our primary research interest is infection and cancer in humans. Ingemar
Ernbergs group has conducted research on Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and cancer
for more than forty years. We particularly study EBV-infection, which can also
be used as a model to study early steps in in vitro transformation, viral
genetic switches, non-genetic variation and cancer cell metabolism.
To perform migration studies and studies of metabolism in human nasopharngeal
carcinoma derived cell lines. Use methods such as immunofluorescence, confocal
microscopy, wound healing in vitro and Sea Horse to map oxygen, glucose and
Scholarships for postdoctoral qualification can be established for foreign
researchers who place their qualifications in Sweden. The purpose of
scholarships for postdoctoral qualification is to promote internationalization
and contribute to research qualification after a doctorate or equivalent.
A scholarship for carrying out postdoctoral research can be granted for a
maximum of two years within a four year period following the receipt of a
doctoral degree or equivalent.
To be eligible for a postdoctoral scholarship, the person must have obtained a
doctorate or a foreign degree deemed to be equivalent to a doctorate.
Applicants who have not completed a doctorate at the end of the application
period may also apply, provided that all requirements for a completed degree
are met before the (intended) start date of the post doctoral education. The
doctorate should be within Biology or Medicine.
The head of the department determines whether their previous training and
scholarly qualifications correspond to a Swedish doctorate or higher.
