PhD fellowship in molecular neuroscience at Department of Neuroscience, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

A 3 year PhD fellowship researching the molecular mechanisms underlying CSF production and their role in pathology is available at the Department of Neuroscience, starting November 1st 2019, or soon thereafter.

Background

The PhD project is part of a collaborative project (Lundbeck Foundation thematic grants) with the clinical group led by Professor Rigmor Højland Jensen, Glostrup Hospital, working on patients with elevated intracranial pressure in obese individuals, so-called idiopathic intracranial hypertension. The PhD project will be carried out at Department of Neuroscience https://in.ku.dk/ in collaboration with the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research http://cbmr.ku.dk, at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

Project description

The work-package residing at SUND (with Professor Nanna MacAulay https://in.ku.dk/research/nanna-macaulay/) will focus primarily on the hypothesis that overweight rats (mimicking the human condition) have elevated secretion of brain fluids. The work package is managed by an assistant professor, who will carry out the in vivo experimentation, and the posted PhD fellow, who will predominantly take care of the bioinformatics analyses related to RNA analysis of the fluid secreting tissue, choroid plexus, in these rats. In addition, the PhD fellow will participate in the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid obtained from patients, but also do some cell work in the laboratory. Associate professors Tune H. Pers and Matt Gillum, CMBR, are associated with this part of the project.

The research group currently exists of 4-5 post-docs/assistant professor and 2 other PhD students + a technician and mainly works on in vivo and ex vivo experimentation on rodents, cell culture, Western blot/IHC, and electrophysiology. The group is very keen on including a PhD student within the field of bioinformatics to add this expertise to our research.

Description of the scientific environment The project will be carried out within the NovoNordisk foundation project NovoCrops. The project is housed at the Copenhagen Plant Science Center and is a multidisciplinary effort to develop future crops using resilient plants as a starting point. The student will be embedded within the Transport Biology Section at the Department, under the supervision of Ass. Prof. Rosa Laura Lopez Marques. Project description Present day crop production is limited by environmental stresses that are only likely to be aggravated by predicted climate changes. Most attempts to generate resilient crops in the past have focused on the introduction of resilient traits in already domesticated crops. However, this strategy has generated little success due to the multifaceted nature of stress responses. With the advent of new breeding technologies, the domestication of already resilient, underutilized crops offers the possibility of expanding crop diversity for future environmentally sustainable agriculture. Quinoa is a stress resilient plant that is highly nutritious with an amino acid composition of its grain proteins comparable to that of legume seeds. However, productivity yields are low and subjected to changes due to weather conditions. The aim of this PhD project will be to provide the foundations to increase productivity of quinoa plants. The tasks of the PhD student will include the identification of putative breeding targets in quinoa and the characterization of these targets in order to ensure their link to production yields.

The present position is part of the Centre s activities. The purpose of the research centre is to strengthen the research in experimental pharmacology and toxicology and to increase the output of postdocs and PhDs with a strong in vivo pharmacological profile. It is expected that the future post doc will actively participate in and support the Centre s activities. For further information on the Centre see www.lifepharm.dk The project It is well known that metabolic active organs secrete hormones and other factors that communicate energy availability to the hypothalamus and other areas of the brain. Hormones from the adipocytes and the GI-tract, such as Leptin and GLP-1, respectively, have over the years been characterized for pharmacological potential as anti-obesity interventions. Less focus has been on the liver-secreted factors, despite the fact that hepatocytes are highly important for nutrient sensing and metabolism. New compounds are being identified that are expressed in the liver, and where the hepatocytes are responsible for their regulated secretion. This project investigates how nutritional status of the liver interacts with the satiety signalling of the brain.

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

University of Copenhagen



Section of Experimental Animal Models at the Department of Veterinary and Animal Science wishes to appoint a postdoc within experimental pharmacology from 1 May 2020 (or soon thereafter) until 30 April 2022.

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and Novo Nordisk A/S jointly establish a research centre in 2010 – The LIFEPHARM Centre – with a budget of DKK 140 mill covering activities until the end of 2023. The present position is part of the Centre’s activities. The purpose of the research centre is to strengthen the research in experimental pharmacology and toxicology and to increase the output of postdocs and PhDs with a strong in vivo pharmacological profile. It is expected that the future post doc will actively participate in and support the Centre’s activities. For further information on the Centre see www.lifepharm.dk

The project

It is well known that metabolic active organs secrete hormones and other factors that communicate energy availability to the hypothalamus and other areas of the brain. Hormones from the adipocytes and the GI-tract, such as Leptin and GLP-1, respectively, have over the years been characterized for pharmacological potential as anti-obesity interventions. Less focus has been on the liver-secreted factors, despite the fact that hepatocytes are highly important for nutrient sensing and metabolism. New compounds are being identified that are expressed in the liver, and where the hepatocytes are responsible for their regulated secretion. This project investigates how nutritional status of the liver interacts with the satiety signalling of the brain. The project is a collaboration between Section of Experimental Animal Models and Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Copenhagen and Novo Nordisk. We offer creative and stimulating working conditions in dynamic and international research environment.

Your job
The candidate will in collaboration with the supervisors, be responsible for the design of the in vivo as well as the ex vivo studies. The job also includes performance of the experimental work, which covers dosing of compounds (orally, s.c, i.p and by osmotic pumps) to rodents as well as evaluation of the in vivo metabolic phenotype including use of calorimetric chambers. The ex vivo characterization of the tissue including western blot, QPCR and plasma analyses of hormones, is also part of the basis work tasks. Finally, together with the supervisors the candidate will be responsible for evaluation and analyse of the data and writing the data into manuscripts.

Profile
We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic scientist with the following competencies and experience:

Essential experience and skills:

  • You have a PhD in experimental pharmacology, physiology, human biology, medicine, veterinary medicine or similar
  • You are an experienced experimentalist with abilities to work independently in a laboratory setting
  • You have a European ABD accreditation
  • Proficient communication skills and ability to work in teams
  • Excellent English skills written and spoken
Desirable experience and skills:

  • Knowledge of in vivo pharmacological methods and ex vivo pharmacological methods to evaluate metabolic status of the tissue using western blot, QPCR, and immunohistochemistry.
  • Knowledge of handling of proteomic and transcriptomics data.
Terms of employment
The employment as postdoc is a full time and fixed-term position for two years. Salary, pension and terms of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and AC (Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Currently, the monthly salary starts at 33,600 DKK/ approx. 4,480 Euro (April 2018-level). Depending on qualifications, a supplement may be negotiated.

330178038Postdoc in Adipose G protein-coupled receptor signallingRobot Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research University of Copenhagen The University of Copenhagen seeks a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral fellow to commence October 1, 2020 at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research, University of Copenhagen. The postdoctoral fellowship is part of the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research International Postdoctoral Program www.cbmr.ku.dk postdocprogram. About Us The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research s vision is to strengthen interdisciplinary research that transforms our basic understanding of the mechanisms that underlie metabolic health and disease, and to accelerate this knowledge toward new prevention and treatment strategies.

The Center has around 200 employees who work in an international, highly collaborative research environment across a range of biomedical disciplines. You can read more about us here: www.cbmr.ku.dk. Our Research We are focused on understanding the mechanisms controlling adipose tissue metabolism and how this control shapes organismal energy homeostasis. Specifically, we view the adipocyte as a signalling hub that receives and integrates a diverse array of neuronal, metabolite, and hormonal cues. These signals collectively shape adipocyte biology and match metabolic output to balance systemic energy demands. Brown and beige adipocytes are types of fat cells that possess a profound capacity to expend energy and are classified more generally as thermogenic adipocytes. This calorie-burning capacity is particularly appealing as a potential therapeutic approach to counteract metabolic disease. However, we currently lack the means of safely harnessing thermogenic adipose activity. In this project, we will directly address this gap-in-knowledge by exploring novel mechanisms of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) control of human thermogenic adipose in close collaboration with Professor Erik Richter, Associate Professor Steen Larsen, Associate Professor Camilla Schéele, and Professor Thue Schwartz at the University of Copenhagen. We will take advantage of a battery of interdisciplinary, big data approaches to identify candidate regulators. We will then apply state-of-the-art phenotyping and pharmacological strategies to characterize the physiological role of such candidates in adipose metabolism. Where possible, we will leverage our basic research findings toward the development of novel innovative treatment strategies. Find out more about the Gerhart-Hines lab here: https: cbmr.ku.dk research nutrient-and-metabolite-sensing gerhart-hines-group Job Description We seek an enthusiastic, passionate scientist with medical training who is interested in applying their expertise to the discovery and characterization of new adipose GPCR signalling mechanisms. You will have the opportunity to learn and apply a variety of clinical techniques, such as tissue microdialysis sampling. You will interrogate candidate GPCR signalling in mouse and human adipocytes as well as adipose-specific mouse models using an array of pharmacological and metabolic phenotyping strategies.

University of Copenhagen



The University of Copenhagen seeks a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral fellow to commence October 1, 2020 at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research, University of Copenhagen.

The postdoctoral fellowship is part of the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research International Postdoctoral Program www.cbmr.ku.dk/postdocprogram.

About Us
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research’s vision is to strengthen interdisciplinary research that transforms our basic understanding of the mechanisms that underlie metabolic health and disease, and to accelerate this knowledge toward new prevention and treatment strategies. We were established in 2010, and in 2017 we moved into new laboratories, offices and meeting rooms in the Maersk Tower www.maersktower.ku.dk.

The Center has around 200 employees who work in an international, highly collaborative research environment across a range of biomedical disciplines. You can read more about us here: www.cbmr.ku.dk.

Our Research
We are focused on understanding the mechanisms controlling adipose tissue metabolism and how this control shapes organismal energy homeostasis. Specifically, we view the adipocyte as a signalling hub that receives and integrates a diverse array of neuronal, metabolite, and hormonal cues. These signals collectively shape adipocyte biology and match metabolic output to balance systemic energy demands. Brown and beige adipocytes are types of fat cells that possess a profound capacity to expend energy and are classified more generally as thermogenic adipocytes. This calorie-burning capacity is particularly appealing as a potential therapeutic approach to counteract metabolic disease. However, we currently lack the means of safely harnessing thermogenic adipose activity.

In this project, we will directly address this gap-in-knowledge by exploring novel mechanisms of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) control of human thermogenic adipose in close collaboration with Professor Erik Richter, Associate Professor Steen Larsen, Associate Professor Camilla Schéele, and Professor Thue Schwartz at the University of Copenhagen. We will take advantage of a battery of interdisciplinary, big data approaches to identify candidate regulators. We will then apply state-of-the-art phenotyping and pharmacological strategies to characterize the physiological role of such candidates in adipose metabolism. Where possible, we will leverage our basic research findings toward the development of novel innovative treatment strategies.
