About the position

The postdoc will systematically retrieve, describe, quantify, and present the current evidence on the use of Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO). Thus, the postdoc will identify areas in need of further research within non-communicable diseases with emphasis on clinical use such as symptom screening, decision-making and follow-up. The position is fully funded by a grant from the Capital Region (principal investigators associate professor and head of section Kristine Højgaard Allin and postdoc Kirstine Skov Benthien).

About the Center for Clinical Research and Prevention (CCRP)

The CCRP is an ambitious and internationally recognized research center with expertise in population-based epidemiology, clinical epidemiology, pharmaco-epidemiology, health promotion and prevention, and biostatistics. Our overall goal is to contribute to a healthier population through improving disease prevention and treatment and by promoting physical, mental, and social wellbeing. Our research is characterized by a multidisciplinary approach to health research covering basic research into the causes of diseases, research into patient care and disease treatment, and research into effective health promotion and preventive interventions focused on increasing public health. The CCRP is organizationally located as a department at Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital (BFH). More information about the research center can be found here https://www.frederiksberghospital.dk/ckff/Sider/CKFF.aspx.

The position is fully funded for 3 years. Information about CFS can be found at https: cfs.ku.dk Job content The successful candidate will be part of a project entitled Who are We? funded by the Carlsberg Foundation and headed by Prof. Dan Zahavi. The larger project investigates what it means to feel, think, and act as part of a we. Its guiding hypothesis is that a systematic account of the we must be embedded in a more comprehensive investigation of selfhood and social cognition. The project will systematically develop this hypothesis by combining cross-disciplinary theorizing with historical scholarship. In particular, it will draw on seminal contributions from classical phenomenology. In addition to philosophers, the project will also involve social scientists (from social anthropology, sociology, social psychology and political theory). The specific focus of the PhD project is to investigate the relation between the I and the we. What does the existence of we-experiences tell us about the structure of the first-person singular perspective? What is the relation between personal identity and collective identity? Is selfhood only something that can be achieved as part of a community, is individual selfhood linked constitutively to we-membership, or does the latter on the contrary require some pre-existing form of selfhood? In engaging with these questions, the PhD student will be expected to draw on discussions found in contemporary philosophy of mind and social ontology as well as on contributions found in classical phenomenology (e.g., Husserl, Stein, Scheler, Heidegger, Sartre). The successful candidate will be working in close cooperation with philosophers and other social scientists and is expected to partake in the activities of CFS on a daily basis.

The focus of the project will be on integrating ancient genomics with population genetic theory and quantitative genetic resources. The candidate will have freedom to design their project in consultation with the advisor. Research topics can include: 1) Utilizing canine trait-association data to learn about the evolution of complex traits in ancient dogs from the Paleolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age 2) Developing methods to detect genes under positive selection when working with multiple populations related to each other in complex ways 3) Searching for functional variants that were positively selected in dogs over time during major human cultural transitions, like the advent of agriculture 4) Testing among different models of co-evolution between humans and dogs. The PhD position is funded by the Villum Foundation, and will be carried out at the Globe Institute, a newly-created research institute in Denmark. The candidate will have to opportunity to collaborate with international leaders in the fields of population genetics of domesticated species, statistical genetics and paleogenomics, including Greger Larson, Laurent Frantz, Alicia Martin, Anders Hansen and Evan Irving-Pease.
