PhD fellow in Molecular mechanisms in Metabolism and Nutrition

Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in the Section of Molecular Physiology commencing 01.08.2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.



Description of the scientific environment
The molecular physiology section focuses on how regulation of energy metabolism influences health and prevents development of disease. We focus on the interaction between physical activity, exercise training and nutrition. It is well known that regular physical activity and nutrition are important for maintaining health yet the underlying molecular mechanisms are not known but likely include regulation of energy metabolism particularly in muscle as well as cross-talk between muscle and other organs. We research from "molecule to man" including techniques of molecular biology, transgenic organisms and human beings.



Project description
The aim of the project is to study the longer- term effects og a low protein diet on plasma levels of FGF21, insulin and metabolic and health parameters in humans and mice. Furthermore, to study mechanisms by which FGF21, low protein availability and special amino acids, respectively, signal to the metabolic machinery in adipose tissue and accordingly on whole body glucose uptake and insulin action and energy metabolism/thermogenesis.





Principal supervisor is Professor Bente Kiens, e-mail: bkiens@nexs.ku.dk



Job description
The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:



• To manage and carry through your research project

• Attend PhD courses

• Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis

• Teach and disseminate your research

• To stay at an external research institution for a few months, preferably abroad

• Work for the department



Formal requirements
Applicants should hold an MSc degree in Human Physiology with good results and good English skills. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications, previous publications (if any) and relevant work experience will be emphasized. The PhD program requires experience in conducting invasive experiments in humans and in rodents – especially in transgenic mice. Besides, it requires experience in nutrition and dietary intervention in humans. In transgenic mice, the interplay between FGF21 and thyroid hormone signaling in skeletal muscle will be exploited. Therefore, in vivo skills and experience with pharmacology studies are required. In addition, experience in biochemical laboratory analysis in various tissues and obtained FELASAB course?





Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.



Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.



The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 325.625 (approx. €43,400) including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 44,980). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.





Application Procedure
The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.





Please include

• Cover Letter, detailing your motivation and background for applying for the specific PhD project.

• CV

• Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc)

• Acceptance Letter for the relevant MSc Programme at SCIENCE, if any

• Other information for consideration, e.g. list of publications (if any),

• Full contact details (Name, address, telephone & email) of 1-3 professional referees



The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.



The deadline for applications is 4 July 2019, 23:59 GMT +2

After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee. Afterwards an assessment committee will be appointed to evaluate the selected applications. The applicants will be notified of the composition of the committee and the final selection of a successful candidate will be made by the Head of Department, based on the recommendations of the assessment committee and the interview committee.

The main criterion for selection will be the research potential of the applicant and the above mentioned skills. The successful candidate will then be requested to formally apply for enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD school of Science.
