330017394Postdoctoral position in Art HistoryRobot The Department of Arts and Cultural Studies, Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Denmark, invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position affiliated with the project The Art of Nordic Colonialism: Writing Transcultural Art Histories to be filled by September 1 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for 24 months 2 years. The main subjects covered by the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies are cultural production and art, cultural theory, cultural history and cultural dissemination. The Department conducts research and runs higher education programs from BA to PhD level. Further information about the department can be found at www.artsandculturalstudies.ku.dk Job content The Art of Nordic Colonialism brings together researchers, curators, and artists working on art and visual culture related to Nordic colonial projects in the Caribbean, West Africa, India, Greenland, Iceland, and Sápmi. Artists took active part in imperialist projects from the 17th century and onwards, either as participants in colonial expeditions, as tourists and travelers, or as onlookers from home. At the same time, colonized subjects used aesthetic practices in their resistance to colonial rule. This research project will commence a collective examination and discussion of the role colonialism has had on the creation and reception of art and art histories across the Nordic countries and their former colonies from the 1600s up until the present. Art and visual culture pertaining to Nordic colonial histories have received surprisingly little scholarly attention and remain to be properly accounted for. The project s contention is that the political investment in narratives of national and cultural homogeneity in the Nordic region have overshadowed the traditions of transcultural exchange, influence, and conflict engrained in histories of colonial encounters. The colonial inflection of the definition of art has also framed aesthetic practices by the colonized as ethnographica to be studied by anthropologist not art historians. Questioning the conceptual boundaries of art , this research project seeks to move beyond nationalized art histories and their colonial legacies in order to develop new transcultural and decolonial approaches to historical engagement with art and visual culture. We now seek to extend the research group with one two-year Postdoc researcher who wish to work in the intersection of art history, visual culture and studies of colonialism coloniality in relation to Nordic colonialism in a broad sense.

330014358PhD position in pancreatic cancer bioinformaticsRobot Department of Biology Faculty of Science University of Copenhagen Department of Biology, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering 1 PhD scholarships in Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks on pH and Ion Transport in Pancreatic Cancer (pHIoniC) from October 2019 Scientific environment This pHIonic training network is financed by the European Commission Horizon 2020. The project is a collaboration between 10 academic and 3 industrial partners from 7 European countries. The consortium brings together highly synergistic expertise in the field of ion transport and cancer research. Our focus is on pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), which is rising in incidence and is so far incurable. The programme s central idea is that the unique pancreatic microenvironment contributes to disease development and progression. The programme has a strong grounding in the physiology of acid base transport in the exocrine pancreas and it develops new concepts and tools in the cancer field and beyond. Jointly, pHioniC will map pH landscape in normal and diseased pancreas, characterize the impact of the acidic microenvironment on PDAC development, and apply drug nanocarrier antibody designs for targeting of tumors. For further details of the network, please visit https: www.medizin.uni-muenster.de phionic home . pHioniC will provide training and collaborative network and structured PhD programme. The training will cover the fields of ion transport, oncology, imaging, bioinformatics and antibody technology, extensive transferable skills and personalized training elements. The specific PhD project will be within Prof Sandelin s group at the Bioinformatics Centre at University of Copenhagen. The group is a world leader in medical transcriptomics and gene regulation biology. Examples of our work include promoter-based classification of inflammatory bowel disease (Nat Commun. 2018 9(1):1661), enhancer transcription (Science 2015 347(6225):1010-4) and the creation of enhancer atlases across human cell types (Nature. 2014 507(7493):455-461) Project description: Relation and causality between pH homeostasis and driver mutation generation in PDAC development We hypothesize that acidic conditions synergize with PDAC mutations to drive PDAC development. An outstanding question is the causality between the two: are PDAC driver mutations more easily generated in an acidic environment, or is their ability to drive PDAC development increased due to the acidity. The experiments will be based on exposing organoid cultures that carry one, two or none of the typical PDAC driver mutations to acid conditions, and then assess changes in RNA response (RNA-seq) and generation of new mutations. This is a collaboration with another PhD in the training network, who will also assess cell phenotypes in parallel.

Examples of our work include promoter-based classification of inflammatory bowel disease (Nat Commun. 2018 9(1):1661), enhancer transcription (Science 2015 347(6225):1010-4) and the creation of enhancer atlases across human cell types (Nature. 2014 507(7493):455-461)


Project description: Relation and causality between pH homeostasis and driver mutation generation in PDAC development
We hypothesize that acidic conditions synergize with PDAC mutations to drive PDAC development. An outstanding question is the causality between the two: are PDAC driver mutations more easily generated in an acidic environment, or is their ability to drive PDAC development increased due to the acidity. The experiments will be based on exposing organoid cultures that carry one, two or none of the typical PDAC driver mutations to acid conditions, and then assess changes in RNA response (RNA-seq) and generation of new mutations. This is a collaboration with another PhD in the training network, who will also assess cell phenotypes in parallel.

Principal supervisor is Prof. Albin Sandelin, Section for Computational and RNA Biology, albin@bio.ku.dk, Phone: +45 353-21285
