Assistant Professor to DanStem

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
University of Copenhagen


The Danish Stem Cell Center (DanStem) is looking for an Assistant professor for a 4 year position commencing 1 October 2020 or upon agreement.

Institute:
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology – DanStem is located at the University of Copenhagen. DanStem addresses basic research questions in stem cell and developmental biology and has activities focused on the translation of promising basic research results into new strategies and targets for the development of new therapies for cancer and chronic diseases such as diabetes and liver failure. Find more information about the Center at http://danstem.ku.dk/.

Job description:

  • The specification of functional cell types during embryogenesis is controlled by transcriptional networks. We have recently become interested in how metabolism feeds into these networks. In particular we have found that forcing metabolic changes in embryonic stem cells (ESCs) drives up both the embryonic and extra-embryonic gene expression programs. In this project we are exploring how global changes in metabolism are linked to these alterations in ESC transcriptional networks. As a result, the Brickman group is looking for a highly motivated senior postdoctoral candidate with a strong background in developmental biology, stem cell biology and metabolism to explore this link. The candidate will establish the signaling pathways and post translational modifications downstream of these metabolic changes and how they alter transcriptional states. The project will involve extensive work with ESCs and pre-implantation mouse embryos, metabolomics, and various next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. In addition to working alongside a multidisciplinary team of collaborators, the successful candidate will work closely with collaborators in the NNF Centre for Basic Metabolic Research at Copenhagen University.
  • Participation in formal pedagogical training program for assistant professors.
Qualifications:
We are seeking a highly motivated and ambitious candidate with a minimum of 5 years’ experience in developmental biology/stem cell research with a professional profile that closely matches the qualifications below:

  • The candidate is required to hold a PhD degree in stem cell/developmental biology/biological image processing.
  • The candidate should have extensive experience with ESC culture and differentiation, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, CUT&RUN and other NGS technologies.
  • Excellent skills in molecular biology.
  • Experience assessing metabolomic datasets is a plus.
  • Some experience with next generation sequence analysis and bioinformatics is essential for the project.
  • Techniques such as embryo dissection, flow cytometry, and embryo imaging is advantageous.
  • A relevant publication record in the area of stem cell and/or biology is essential.
  • Previous experience of training and managing junior scientist or technical staff is advantageous.
  • Participation in formal pedagogical training program for assistant professors
Terms of salary, work, and employment
The employment as assistant professor is a full time and fixed-term position for 4 years. Starting date is 1 October 2020 or upon agreement .

Salary, pension and terms of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and AC (Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Currently, the monthly salary starts at 34,650 DKK/ approx. 4,640 Euro (April 2020-level). Depending on qualifications, a supplement may be negotiated. The employer will pay an additional 17.1 % to your pension fund.
