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.
Duration: 3 years as a PhD student

Description of the scientific environment The Section of Geology is part of the Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management and is located on Øster Voldgade 10 in the central part of Copenhagen. The institute hosts a lively PhD environment and weekly seminars and a yearly hard rock meeting provide a stimulating research environment. The successful applicant will be working daily in the Research group of Geochemical, Mineralogical and Petrological Earth Science, which includes analytical facilities such as EMPA, ICP-MS, LA-ICP-MS, and several TIMS instruments. The research group is involved in a wide range of research activities within geochemistry and petrology of ocean island and within plate magmatism, subduction zones and Greenland Archean complexes, mineralogy and redox-sensitive isotope systems. Project description The research project is centered on investigating the Quaternary silicic volcanism of the Loicas trough in the southern Andes ~35-37 °S through a geochemical and volcanological study to characterize magma sources and magma chamber conditions as well as the explosivity of the magmatism. The extensional Loicas trough is situated behind the main arc front in an otherwise compressional tectonic regime and hosts a number of calderas and silicic volcanoes, a.o. the Domuyo volcano, and the younger Tromen volcano with associated basaltic cinder cones. A recent tomographic study has shown that the trough hosts large shallow magma reservoirs, and the goal is therefore to assess the risk of future eruptions. The applied analytical methods will primarily be whole rock elemental modeling, Sr, Nd, Pb-DS isotopes, and microprobe and laser ablation analyses of minerals for thermobarometric purposes.

The PhD project is envisaged to take an inter-disciplinary, citizen science approach, including on the one hand the study of formal hybrid algorithms for ADM and on the other hand the design of an interface supporting examination of ADM by the public and empirical studies of the explainability of ADM.

330039002PhD fellowship in Conservation HologenomicsRobot The Section for Evolutionary Genomics at the Faculty of Health, University of Copenhagen is offering a fully funded PhD scholarship fellowship starting 1 September 2019, to implement a hologenomic analysis of the ecological relations between two critically endangered fish and the invasive spacing ousting them. Project The introduction of invasive species is one of the major causes of the ongoing biodiversity loss worldwide. The situation is especially critical in inherently sensitive ecosystems such as marshlands, because the invasive species problematic is summed to other threads such as habitat destruction and climate change. In addition, there is an increasing recognition of the role of microorganisms in the biological processes of complex organisms, which suggests that considering the contribution of gut microorganisms to the interactions between native and invasive species might provide deeper insights into their ecological relations. In this project, the successful candidate will implement a state of the art hologenomic approach that jointly analyses the performance of fish and their associated gut microorganisms to understand the interactions between two endangered native fish and one invasive species that is ousting them. The candidate will first analyse the natural variation in the wild, to later perform a range of captivity experiments to better understand the interactions between the three species under different conditions, and identify the role of microorganisms in those processes. The ultimate aim will be to implement the generated knowledge into the conservation actions of the two endangered species to avoid their extinction. Principal supervisor: Prof. Tom Gilbert.

Description of the scientific environment The successful candidate will be part of the Regenberg research team that develops highly sensitive methods for detection and analysis of circular DNA in yeast, animals, healthy and diseased tissue of human. The successful candidate will be working in close contact with other scientists in bioinformatics and experimentalists that conducts experimental evolution with circular DNA in a eukaryotic model. The project will be carried out at the Section for Ecology and Evolution, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen. Project description Extrachromosomal DNA circles are known from tumors where they carry proto-oncogenes and can induce tumorigenesis. However, our recent data suggest that circular DNA is a common mutation in healthy eukaryotic cells. The project aims at describing how this otherwise poorly studied group of mutations affects the evolution of genomes. Emphasis will be put on mapping of synteny changes in primate genomes and determining the most likely paths for their establishment. This will be done by reconstruction of ancestral chromosomes and rearrangements of selected primate genomes, and next model and map rearrangements in these species that can be explained circular DNA.
