Associate professor in translational environmental medicine

A full-time position as associate professor in environmental medicine is vacant at the Research Unit of Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacy and Environmental Health, Department of Public Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, SDU.

The academic position

The associate professor will be appointed at the Research Unit of Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacy and Environmental Medicine at the Department of Public Health, Faculty of Health Sciences, SDU.

The position will be within environmental medicine with emphasis on prospective birth cohorts (including the Odense Child Cohort and Faroese cohorts) and the impact of early life exposures to environmental chemicals and their adverse effects on organ functions (e.g. the brain, immune, metabolic and reproductive system). Other areas include endocrine disruption, human biomonitoring, analytical chemistry, toxicology, and risk assessment. The department has a long tradition in the discovery of environmental chemicals or biomarkers as well as the development of analytical chemical methods to measure these.

The research areas of the Research Unit of Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacy span from pharmacological epidemiology to clinical studies and cell-based basic pharmacology. The pharmacoepidemiological research group utilizes the world-class Danish registries to assess pharmacological questions in large populations.

The translational pharmacology group aims to understand variability in drug toxicity, drug metabolism and drug transport. Cell-based models such as induced-pluripotent stem cells, primary human hepatocytes as well as clinical pharmacokinetic studies are utilized to understand variability in drug response and toxicity.

The analytical chemistry laboratory which is shared between Environmental Medicine and Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacy boasts three LC-MS/MS and an Orbitrap LC-MS/MS used to analyze concentrations of drugs or environmental chemicals. Collectively, CPPEM has a strong background in exposure to environmental chemicals, pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacogenetics, pharmacokinetics, drug-drug interactions and therapeutic drug monitoring and the successful applicant will master translation from laboratory research to humans.  

Areas of responsibility

The successful applicant will be expected to initiate, supervise, and publish research, have innovative ideas and set the framework for excellent research and to attract research funding within the above-mentioned areas. Preferably, the applicant will be able to perform translational research or to have an open mindset to combine the wide number of research methodologies implemented at both departments and act as a bridge for future collaborations.

The applicant has a PhD, a strong scientific profile, and has demonstrated highly profiled independent research experience related to the fields of environmental medicine. In addition, documented experience in conducting and managing research projects and attracting research funding. Additionally, the associate professor must teach and mentor, junior faculty, postdocs, PhD students, and undergraduate students at the Faculty of Health Science, as well as maintain and develop national and international contacts and secure funding. Moreover, profiling this research area in the public eye will be an important task.

Employers

The Research Unit of Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacy and Environmental Medicine today has approximately 50 employees: 5 full professors, 6 associate professors, 1 assistant professor, 2 postdocs, 12-15 PhD students, approximately 15 technical and administrative staff and annually. It consists of three separate research groups: pharmacoepidemiology, translational pharmacology and environmental medicine. The translational pharmacology research unit cohabits with and has close collaboration with the pharmacoepidemiology and environmental medicine groups within the research unit. Additionally, it collaborates with pharmacology at OUH. Collectively, it is part of Denmark’s largest center for research, teaching and clinical service in pharmacology.

The research unit teaches in four educations: Medicine, Pharmacy, Chiropractor and Biomedicine. It produces approximately 100 international peer-reviewed publications per year.

Professor Kim Brøsen heads the unit and Professor Jesper Bo Nielsen heads the department.

Management

The associate professor will be responsible to the Head of Research at the Department of Environmental Medicine and to the Head the Research Unit of Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacy and Environmental Health. 

Contact information

Further information can be obtained from the Head of Research (Environmental Medicine), Professor Tina Kold Jensen (tkjensen@health.sdu.dk) or from the Head of the Research Unit of Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacy and Environmental Health, Professor Kim Brøsen, (kbrosen@health.sdu.dk)

Salary and terms of employment
