Akademisk laboratoriemanager i insekter med vilje til feltarbejde

Institut for Plante- og Miljøvidenskab, Sektion for Organismebiologi søger en akademisk medarbejder inden for forskning og undervisning til varetagelse af en bred vifte af eksperimentelt biologisk arbejde omkring insekter. Stillingen er en fast fuldtidsstilling og ønskes besat 18. marts 2019 eller snarest derefter.

Om os
Ved Sektion for Organismebiologi arbejdes med planter, dyr (insekter, pattedyr m.v.) og mikroorganismer. Sektionen har betydelige opgaver indenfor området insekter. Vi foretager en lang række undersøgelser med eksperimentelle opsætninger af planter og dyr i klimakamre og væksthuse samt feltforsøg og feltindsamlinger og anvender en lang række metoder fra molekylærbiologiske (DNA/RNA ekstraktion, PCR, qPCR, sekventering, mv.), serologiske og mikrobiologiske. Sektionen udgøres af cirka 38 medarbejdere, heraf 4 teknisk administrative medarbejdere (TAP), som har en høj grad af samarbejde. En del af vores medarbejdere kommer fra andre lande, så kommunikationen i hverdagen foregår både på dansk og engelsk. For mere information se: http://plen.ku.dk/english/research/organismal_biology/

Arbejdsopgaver
Du vil bistå instituttets forskere med forskellige forsknings- og undervisningsopgaver omkring insekter, og vil fungere som taksonomisk støtte og støtte ved design af forsøg med insekter.

  • Lede etablering, administration og forbedringer af insektopdrætssystemer på PLEN ifølge gældende regler (GLP etc)
  • Lede udvikling og implementering af metoder og forsøg med insekter i laboratorie og felten, for eksempel bioassays til at belyse samspil mellem insekter og mellem insekter og andre organismer (adfærd, fitness, infektioner) og markforsøg og feltindsamlinger for eksempel ifht insektdiversitet
  • Ansvarlig for at udvikle og vedligeholde protokoller for indsamlinger og bestemmelse af insekter og leddyr, for opbevaring af prøvesamlinger af leddyr og insektpatogene mikroorganismer, herunder udveksling af materiale
  • Vedligeholde og forberede insektmateriale til undervisningsformål og bidrage til insekt-relateret undervisning og vejledning
  • Opbygning, pasning og vedligehold af insekt- og tilhørende plantekulturer
  • Håndtering af videnskabelige forsøg med insekter i samarbejde med forskere og studerende, inklusiv udvikling af eksperimentelle design, data opsamling og analyser
  • Bidrage til feltarbejde og markforsøg
  • Bidrage til undervisning omkring insekter
  • Identifikation og sortering af insekter og udvalgte mikroorganismer
  • Vedligeholde instituttets insekt samlinger og insekt-patologiske samlinger
  • Anvendelse af molekylærbiologiske og serologiske metoder
Vi forventer
  • Uddannelse som biolog/agronom eller lignende (MSc eller PhD)
  • Erfaring med eksperimentelt biologisk arbejde med insekter
  • Erfaring med pasning og vedligehold af levende kulturer (planter/dyr)
  • Kendskab til molekylærbiologiske og serologiskemetoder

Vi tilbyder en forsknings- og undervisningsarbejdsplads med mangeartede opgaver omkring insekter, hvor der er kontakt til mange mennesker og hvor det er vigtigt at kommunikere effektivt. Arbejdet fordrer også kreativitet ifht f.eks forsøgsopstillinger og metoder til opdræt. De mange forskellige opgaver giver variation men betyder også at der er særligt behov for at have en meget systematisk tilgang til sine arbejdsopgaver.

The work is focused on the analysis of viral RNA polymerase mutants by using enzymatic and protein structure methodology. Information on the department can be found at: https: isim.ku.dk. Our research The project will be conducted at the Copenhagen Hepatitis C Program (CO-HEP), a joint venture between Copenhagen University Hospital, Hvidovre, and the Department of Immunology and Microbiology, University of Copenhagen (https: isim.ku.dk research cohep). CO-HEP is an international research environment with over 30 investigators from numerous countries, worldwide, including Master and Ph.D. students, postdocs, assistant and associate professors. CO-HEP provides a highly supportive framework for the multidisciplinary study of viruses, with a network of relevant international collaborators. The project will be supervised by Professor Jens Bukh, research director of CO-HEP and whose work has focussed on positive-stranded RNA viruses with major contributions to the development of in vitro and in vivo experimental systems to study hepatitis C virus (HCV) and related viruses, including the study of antiviral resistance. Professor Bukh is the recipient of the 2015 Novo Nordisk Prize and the 2019 Novo Nordisk Foundation Distinguished Investigator Award. Your job RNA viruses are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality, worldwide.

CO-HEP is an international research environment with over 30 investigators from numerous countries, worldwide, including Master and Ph.D. students, postdocs, assistant and associate professors. CO-HEP provides a highly supportive framework for the multidisciplinary study of viruses, with a network of relevant international collaborators. The project will be supervised by Professor Jens Bukh, research director of CO-HEP and whose work has focussed on positive-stranded RNA viruses with major contributions to the development of in vitro and in vivo experimental systems to study hepatitis C virus (HCV) and related viruses, including the study of antiviral resistance. Professor Bukh is the recipient of the 2015 Novo Nordisk Prize and the 2019 Novo Nordisk Foundation Distinguished Investigator Award.

Your job
RNA viruses are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality, worldwide. We aim at elucidating molecular mechanisms responsible for how different RNA viruses develop resistance to novel and potent broad-spectrum antivirals, which are promising strategies to fight virus diseases, including emerging and re-emerging viruses.

We are undertaking a multi-disciplinary approach including the use of culture systems, biochemical and genetic evolution analysis, and animal models. Your tasks would include the development and implementation of methodologies to perform biochemical and structural analysis of viral polymerases with drug-resistance mutations. Pathogens of particular interest for this project include hepatitis C and E viruses, flaviviruses (tick born encephalitis, yellow fever, zika), and alphaviruses (sindbis, chikungunya).

Profile
We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic scientist(s) with the following competencies and experience:

Essential experience and skills:

  • You have a Ph.D. in protein biochemistry, structural biology or related fields. Applicants expecting to obtain the Ph.D. degree in the near future are also encouraged to apply.
  • You are highly experienced in protein expression, protein chemistry, enzymology, or protein structure analysis.
  • You have an active interest in studying viruses, antivirals, and drug-resistance.
  • Proficient communication skills and ability to work in teams.
  • Excellent English skills, written and spoken.
Desirable experience and skills:

  • Experience with in vitro studies of RNA dependent RNA polymerases.
  • A strong publication record, including publications as co-authors or first author in high quality internationally recognized journals.
  • You will be expected to drive your research with independence and initiative, but also to interact well within the program.
Place of employment
The place of employment is at the Department of Immunology and Microbiology, University of Copenhagen. The physical workplaces are Copenhagen University Hospital, Hvidovre, (Department of Infectious Diseases) and the Mærsk Tower at the Panum Institute (Department of Immunology and Microbiology, University of Copenhagen).
