330086859PhD fellowship in particle toxicology at department of Public Health and the National Research Centre for the Working EnvironmentRobot We are offering a PhD fellowship in particle toxicoloty commencing December 1th 2019. Our group and research The PhD fellowship will be a collaboration enjoying joint supervision from two groups comprising experts in particle toxicology and occupational health at the Section of Environmental Health, University of Copenhagen and the National Research Centre for the Working Environment. The collaboration builts on mutual interests in understanding and preventing health effects of environmental and occupational exposures, including particulate matter and nanomaterials. Project description Inhalation of particles causes toxicity to the lungs and secondary organs, including the cardiovascular system. The mechanisms by which pulmonary exposure causes atherosclerosis and dysfunction in the regulation of vasomotor responses and coagulation are largely unelucidated. Recent research implicates acute phase responses and more broadly serum bioactivity as important contributors to vascular effects by particle exposure. The project uses metaloxide nanoparticles, relevant in the occupational setting, to explore the interplay between pulmonary responses to hazardous metaloxide particles and systemic effects, using well-established animal experimental models and development of in vitro cellular co-culture models to assess progression of atherosclerosis. Techniques employed will include animal experimental models, cell- and biochemical assays.

Our group and research

The PhD fellowship will be a collaboration enjoying joint supervision from two groups comprising experts in particle toxicology and occupational health at the Section of Environmental Health, University of Copenhagen and the National Research Centre for the Working Environment. The collaboration builts on mutual interests in understanding and preventing health effects of environmental and occupational exposures, including particulate matter and nanomaterials.



Project description

Inhalation of particles causes toxicity to the lungs and secondary organs, including the cardiovascular system. The mechanisms by which pulmonary exposure causes atherosclerosis and dysfunction in the regulation of vasomotor responses and coagulation are largely unelucidated. Recent research implicates acute phase responses and more broadly serum bioactivity as important contributors to vascular effects by particle exposure. The project uses metaloxide nanoparticles, relevant in the occupational setting, to explore the interplay between pulmonary responses to hazardous metaloxide particles and systemic effects, using well-established animal experimental models and development of in vitro cellular co-culture models to assess progression of atherosclerosis. Techniques employed will include animal experimental models, cell- and biochemical assays.

330088825The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, posts vacant PhD fellowship in the project "Fungal Architectures (FUNGAR)"Robot The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, posts vacant PhD fellowship in the project Fungal Architectures (FUNGAR) Framework Fungal Architectures is a 3-year project funded under the EU Horizon 2020 FETOPEN (Future and Emerging Technologies Open), Research and Innovation action. The project assembles a highly cross disciplinary team comprising Architecture (CITA, KADK), Computer Science and Biophysics (University of West England), Mycology (University of Utrecht) and industry experts in mycelium-based technologies (MOGU, Italy). This call is for a fully funded 3 year PhD fellowship that is fully integrated within the project. The PhD will be situated at research centre CITA (Centre for Information Technology and Architecture), as part of Institute for Architecture and Technology. The fulltime position will start 1st December 2019, or soon as possible thereafter. General Project Summary As one of the primary consumers of environmental resource, the building industry faces unprecedented challenges in needing to reduce its environmental impact and current consumption practices. This grand societal challenge requires approaches that envision a paradigm shift in how material is sourced, processed and assembled, to address the magnitude of these challenges in a truly sustainable way. These new approaches may also result in new kinds of material with new functionalities and implications for the way in which architecture is designed, constructed and inhabited. In this research project, we propose to develop a structural substrate using live fungal mycelium functionalise the substrate with nanoparticles and polymers to make mycelium-based electronics implement sensorial fusion and decision making in the fungal electronics and grow monolithic buildings from this functionalised fungal substrate. We will develop Kagome based woven stay-in-place formworks for supporting and shaping the mycelium composite, and investigate the impact of topology and geometry on spatial, structural and computational characteristics. PhD Focus This PhD will focus on two principle tasks within the broader project. 1. Preliminary Characterisation and Modelling [12 months] : This task will focus on preliminary characterisation of mechanical properties (bending, compression, tension with tests performed according to recognised standards) of the mycelium substrate weave composite. Particular attention will be paid to the influence of woven formwork parameters on mechanical properties of the composite, including variations of weave material, weave angles, cover ratios. These preliminary characterisation results will be used to build numerical models for use in T5.3 to predict the mechanical behaviour of novel designs. 2. Design rules for fungal architecture [18 months]: This task will focus on investigating and defining novel architectural design rules that integrate spatial organisation, structural requirements and computational functions at architectural scale. The topology and geometry of designs will be investigated as the principle control parameters for achieving integration. This will be investigated in simulation and validated through physical prototypes. The PhD student will work directly and primarily with the tasks outlined above. There is an obligation to share relevant findings with other consortium members, and a reciprocal obligation to integrate findings from other work-packages where necessary. CITA s participation in the project is led by Associate Professor Phil Ayres who acts as Principle Investigator on the project and primary PhD supervisor. The project also includes two further positions, both based at CITA.

Job description
A postdoctoral position is a fixed-term academic position. The position is heavily weighted in favour of research. Other duties (e.g., research administration) may, furthermore, have to be performed to a limited extent. The University determines the exact ratio between the various responsibilities. The ratio may vary over time. The chosen candidate will be enrolled as PostDoc at the Faculty of Social Sciences. It is expected that the PostDoc works on research projects together with the supervisor but he/she may also pursue an independent line of research related to the areas of migration & cultural clashes and economic inequality & protests from a social, cultural, and/or political psychological perspective.

Qualifications
Applicants should have a PhD in Psychology, Human Development, or a related discipline at the beginning of the employment. The candidate should have knowledge and research experience in the field of social, cultural, and political psychology. Candidates who are methodologically plural, including expertise in ethnographic and experimental research, are desirable. It is not a requirement to understand, speak, or learn Danish.

Salary and conditions of employment
Terms of appointment and salary will be in accordance with an agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The salary range starts at DKK 34.079,13 (EUR 4,560) per month + a 17,1 % contribution to the pension scheme. It is possible to negotiate salary supplements on an annual basis.

The Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC) have further agreed on a protocol that makes it possible for international researchers employed by the University to achieve a pension exemption, whereby the pension contribution will be paid out as salary.
