PhD Fellowship in 'Chromosome Instability and Human Disease' at the Center for Chromosome Stability

A PhD position is available in the Center for Chromosome Stability (www.ccs.ku.dk) in a group headed by Prof Ian D. Hickson. The post is available from October 1st, 2019 (or at a mutually agreed date). Highly motivated and committed candidates with an interest in chromosome structure and disease are encouraged to apply.

The post is fully funded, although the post-holder will be encouraged to seek a personal fellowship to support his/her PhD stipend.

Our group and research
The CCS is a Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation, and has as its mission on understanding of how chromosomal instability causes human disease. The CCS is embedded at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (www.icmm.ku.dk).

Project description
The project is part of collaboration between the Hickson and Lopez-Contreras groups in the CCS and will focus on understanding the molecular basis for developmental disorders in man caused by abnormalities in the protein Topoisomerase III (TOP3). TOP3 is required for DNA repair and genome stabilization through altering the topological state of DNA. The project will involve multiple methodologies, including biophysical and cell biological techniques, as well as characterization of a mouse model of the human disease.

The project will be overseen primarily by Dr. Anna H. Bizard, an expert on DNA topology

Start: October 2019.

About us The Center was established in 2010 through a generous, unrestricted grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The vision of the Center is to strengthen interdisciplinary research that transforms our basic understanding of the mechanisms of metabolic health and disease, and to accelerate this knowledge toward new prevention and treatment strategies. The Center has around 200 employees from all over the world. Its employees moved into new laboratories, offices and meeting rooms in the Maersk Tower in summer 2017. In 2018, the Center obtained new strategic funding from the Novo Nordisk Foundation to further expand and establish develop five enabling biology and technology platforms in support of the new research strategy. You can read more about us at http: cbmr.ku.dk. The PhD fellowship is a collaborative project between the Frimurer and Schwartz Groups. A major aim of the Frimurer and Schwartz Groups is to discover non-metabolite ligands for metabolite receptors and use these as pharmacological tools to try to understand how signaling metabolites and their GPCR sensors interact with hormonal and neuronal mechanism to control endocrine and metabolic functions as the basis for developing novel means to prevent and treat obesity and diabetes.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research represents a highly international research environment characterise by teamwork and collaborations across a range of biomedical disciplines. Project description Metabolites such as lactate and ketone bodies function as highly tissue and cell exchangeable metabolites, which function not only as classical metabolites energy sources and metabolic building blocks, but they also have important functions as extracellular signaling molecules, which are sensed by GPR81 (HCAR1) and GPR109A (HCAR2) respectively. These metabolite sensors are particularly highly expressed in adipose tissue, but also in many other cells of the body. In order to characterize and understand the physiological role of these metabolites as signaling molecules versus classical metabolites it is mandatory to have access to synthetic, non-metabolite ligands which mimic or block the function of the specific metabolite receptors. The project aims at identifying novel selective, synthetic agonists and antagonists for GPR81 and -109A by use of a well-established proprietary structure-based, computational chemistry driven drug discovery technology and use these in invitro and subsequently in vivo animal experiments in combination with genetic receptor models.

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.

The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the surrounding community and invites all regardless of personal background to apply for the position.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.
