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

The postdoctoral fellowship is part of the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research International Postdoctoral Program www.cbmr.ku.dk postdocprogram. The postdoctoral fellow will receive a competitive package including salary and running costs for three years, and be part of an international scientific collaboration at the Maersk Tower www.maersktower.ku.dk. Job description The fellowship is aimed at early career researchers with a basic science background or clinicians who aspire to a career in academic medicine. We are particularly interested in candidates who are familiar with integrative research approaches within the broad area of basic metabolic research with an application towards human pathophysiology. The Center s vision is to strengthen interdisciplinary research that transforms the basic understanding of mechanisms involved in metabolic health and disease, and to accelerate this knowledge toward new prevention and treatment strategies. Information about the Center may be found at www.cbmr.ku.dk. The postdoc position is in the Metabolism and Molecular Pharmacology Group headed by Associate Professor Christoffer Clemmensen. The research group investigates how neuroendocrine signals are involved in coordinating appetite, food-motivated behavior, and body weight, and aims at transforming molecular and physiological insights into innovative therapeutic strategies that can correct obesity and metabolic diseases (Clemmensen et al., 2019 Nature Reviews Endocrinology). The postdoc project is centred on a close collaboration with Professor Ole Kiehn, who is a world-leading expert in the motor control.

Project description The maintenance of mammalian energy homeostasis is highly dependent on coordinated and context-related locomotion. In times of food scarcity, internal metabolic cues are vital to ensure appropriate behaviour for survival and thus locomotor activities must be prioritized between foraging for food, reproduction, and escape from predators. Despite locomotion and eating are so obviously intertwined and both essential behaviours for survival, the mechanisms by which specific motor programs are engaged to maintain energy homeostasis are not well understood. Two distinct MLR-related nuclei responsible for divergent but context-dependent locomotor behaviours were recently characterized by the Kiehn Lab (Co-PI) (Caggioano et al., 2018 Nature). Here we offer a collaborative postdoctoral project that aims to evaluate how metabolic status adjusts locomotor programs towards context-dependent movements. Thus, a central objective of the project is to characterize physiological and molecular links between energy homeostasis and locomotion. To this end, the candidate will utilize a series of modern methods to study the neurobiology of movements and the neurobiology of energy homeostasis in rodents, including chemogenetics, optogenetics, in vivo electrophysiology and genetically driven trans-synaptic tracing. The postdoctoral fellow will benefit from the diverse and complementary expertise of the Clemmensen Lab (CBMR, UCPH) and the Kiehn Lab (Dept. Neuroscience, UCPH) as well as the outstanding research environment at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH.
