2 year Postdoc in Proteomic and Liver Diseases at Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
University of Copenhagen

A postdoctoral stipend is available in the clinical proteomics group at Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research – CPR. The Center has been established at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen to promote basic and applied discovery research on human proteins of medical relevance. The Center comprises a wide range of expertise and resources including proteomics, protein production and characterization in disease mechanisms.

The clinical proteomics group is led by Professor Matthias Mann, a leading authority in mass spectrometry-based proteomics with more than 200,000 citations according to ISI (H-index over 214), making him one of the most highly cited researchers worldwide.

Project description
We are seaking a postdoc in proteomic and liver diseases, the project aims to identify biomarkers and insight into human liver diseases such as NAFLD and secondly to led the proteomic analyses on the postprandial human liver study (see more at

We are looking for an excellent and creative candidate to work together with Nicolai J. Wewer Albrechtsen and Matthias Mann on proteomic analyses of human liver diseases. You will be part of a dynamic working group composed of PhD students and post docs with diverse scientific background including experts in mass-spectrometry based proteomic and clinicians with expertise in liver diseases. You will be mainly working on performing and analysing blood and liver tissue from ongoing liver studies using state-of art technologies and integrating this with clinical data. It is essential that you like working in a team-based manner but also is able to run independent project(s). You have prior experience in generating and handling ‘big data’ (e.g. RNA sequencing or even better in proteomics/phosphoproteomic) and you are open-minded for learning new techniques.
