PhD fellow in single molecule biophysics

Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in Single molecule biophysics commencing 1st April or as soon as possible thereafter.  
 
Description of the scientific environment  
The position is in the Group of Asoc. Prof Nikos S. Hatzakis at the Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen. The main interest of the group is to develop and optimize methods, which through single molecules studies, can provide a fundamental understanding of the molecular mechanistic detail underlying protein function.  
 
Project description  
The PhD student will be tasked with the development, optimization and use of single particle assays to quantify protein-ligand (oligosaccharides, small molecule inhibitors) interactions using fluorescent microscopy techniques like TIRF, FLIM, confocal microscopy. The project lies in the interface of physics and chemistry and glycobiology and requires extensive statistical analysis. The student will aim to quantify the transient interaction of the proteins with ligand and decipher how regulatory cues, like changes in pH, ionic strength, or ligand properties, regulate these interactions. During the project, the student is expected to both perform the single particle experiments and treat the high quality data and as such will be tasked with developing, assessing and optimizing software suitable for treatment of large datasets. The results will be crucial for attaining a fundamental understanding of protein ligand interactions, which provide key features for protein design or in silico drug design, and will be important for applications with industrial partners like Biotech and pharmaceutical companies as well as medical doctors.  
 
The group currently consist of 10 persons (1 Asoc. Prof, 2 post Docs, 5PhDs and 3 MSc)

329939408PhD fellowship on evolutionary histories of fungal and bacterial antimicrobials, University of CopenhagenRobot Department of Biology, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship on evolutionary histories of fungal and bacterial antimicrobials in fungus-farming termites, commencing 01.04.2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. Description of the scientific environment The project will be based at the international research environment in the Social and Symbiotic Evolution Group at the Section for Ecology and Evolution within the Department of Biology. Research in the group cis highly interdisciplinary and combines the fields of evolutionary ecology, molecular microbiology, genomics, and metabolomics to address fundamental questions on how antagonistic (parasitic) and beneficial (mutualistic) microbial symbionts shape host ecology and evolution, how partners complement each other metabolically, and how host-symbiont associations defend themselves against exploitation (https: www.socialsymbioticevolution.com ). Project description The fellowship will be part of a five-year project titled Disease-free social life without antibiotic resistance, financed by an ERC Consolidator Grant. The application of antimicrobial compounds produced by hosts or defensive symbionts to counter the effects of diseases has been identified in a number of organisms, but despite extensive studies on their presence, we know essentially nothing about why these antimicrobials do not always trigger rampant evolution of resistance in target parasites. Fungus-farming termites have evolved a sophisticated agricultural symbiosis that pre-dates human farming by 30 million years which, in stark contrast to virtually any other organism, does not appear to suffer from specialised diseases. This suggests that the defensive compounds produced by the termite host, its fungal crop, and gut bacterial communities have remained effective for more than 30 million years. This PhD will aim to use comparative analyses of the evolutionary histories, rates of sequence evolution, and modes of action of antimicrobials produced in the symbiosis, whether they have properties that are predicted to not induce resistance. The PhD project will perform comparative genomics of fungal cultivars and metagenomics metatranscriptomics of termite gut and fungus garden microbial communities in a co-evolutionary framework. The will involve fieldwork in Comoe National Park, Ivory Coast (https: en.wikipedia.org wiki Como C3 A9_National_Park). The successful applicant will have experience and interest in antimicrobial compounds and their evolution, microbial ecology, fungal genomics and metagenomics approaches, and will work closely with a postdoc performing comparative metabolomics. Experience with microbiological techniques, genomics and or metagenomics metatranscriptomics of bacterial communities is desirable, as in an interest and willingness to work in the field for extended amounts of time in a back to basics environment during fieldwork in the Ivory Coast.

329945170PhD fellowship in trout metagenomicsRobot The Laboratory of Genomics and Molecular Biomedicine at the Department of Biology, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen is offering a fully funded PhD scholarship fellowship starting March 1st 2019, to study the role of the microbiota on growth and health in farmed rainbow trout. Project Aquaculture is the fastest growing food-producing sector worldwide. Yet, a major challenge pertains to continued optimization of feed conversion since feed waste limits revenue and burdens the environment. New biotechnological solutions to minimise feed waste are likely to emerge from the rapidly developing field of microbiome research and include increased knowledge of biological interactions between the trout host and its associated gut microbiota. The PhD fellow will lead fieldwork, laboratory analyses, and bioinformatics using state-of-the-art metagenome sequencing to obtain new functional insights about the growth and health effects of the gut microbiota in farmed rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Results will be analysed with an eye towards the development of more effective feeding regimes in collaboration with an industrial fish feed partner.

Other Desired Qualifications • Familiarity with bioinformatics for metagenome analyses • Industry collaboration and knowledge of bio-based industry processes. • Experience in searching and obtaining loans from museum collections. • Documented ability to write peer-review research papers. • Evidence of successful contribution to research based teamwork (e.g. from referees). Job conditions The PhD student will be appointed under a 3-year employment contract within the Department of Biology. The fellow is expected to start March 1, 2019.
