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.

Profile

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic scientist, who ideally has the following competencies and qualifications:

  • Bachelor and master degrees in biomedical or natural sciences, ideally with expertise within basic biology/biomedicine and bioinformatics
  • Experience in programming languages R and/or Python
  • Experience with RNA-seq data analysis
  • Experience with basic laboratory work
  • An ambitious and critical mind-set
  • Ability to work alone as well as in a group setting
  • Excellent communication skills, written and oral
Key criteria for the assessment of applicants

  • Professional qualifications relevant to the PhD project
  • Relevant work experience
  • Grade point average
  • Previous publications
  • Other professional activities
  • Language skills
Highly motivated and ambitious candidates are encouraged to apply. The University of Copenhagen encourages career development of its graduate students and the position carries an obligation to conduct some undergraduate teaching within the Medical School.

In all cases, the ability to perform the job will be the primary consideration, and thus the University of Copenhagen wishes to encourage everyone interested in this post to apply, regardless of personal background.

Terms of employment

The employment as PhD fellow is full time and for 3 years.

It is conditioned upon the applicant’s success­ful enrolment as a PhD student at the Graduate School at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. This requires submission and acceptance of an application for the specific project formulated by the applicant and the supervisor.

330123291PhD fellowship in "Foetal metabolic reprogramming in NAFLD and NASH" at the LIFEPHARM centre, Department of Veterinary and Animal SciencesRobot Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences University of Copenhagen We are offering a PhD fellowship in Foetal metabolic reprogramming in NAFLD and NASH commencing March 1st 2020, or as soon as possible hereafter. The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and Novo Nordisk A S established a research centre in 2010 - The LIFEPHARM Centre (www.lifepharm.dk) - with a budget of DKK 140 million. 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 candidates and PhDs with a strong in vivo pharmacological profile. It is expected that the future PhD fellow will be enrolled in the Graduate Programme for In Vivo Pharmacology and Experimental Animals (IVP) at SUND and participate actively in this network. The IVP Graduate Programme was established in 2006 as a collaboration between the Faculties of Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Health Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, University of Aarhus, and industrial partners Novo Nordisk A S, LEO Pharma and H.

Within this field, we have a special interest in pharmacological and nutritional components of intervention modalities in treatment and prevention. Our primary focus is on mechanisms of disease, and effects of intervention on specific disease-modalities predominantly within the area of life-style associated, metabolic disorders such as diabetes, CVD and NAFLD NASH. We have a strong scientific and analytical platform combining biochemistry, molecular biology, histopathology and functional assays, helping us to interpret the complex interplay of mechanisms and responses in vivo and translate our findings to humans. Project description Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) affects 25 of adults and 15 of all children and is becoming the most common chronic liver disease worldwide. Alarmingly, childhood and adolescent NAFLD is more likely to progress to steatohepatitis (NASH) and hepatic fibrosis compared to that of adult patients, denoting that children are more prone to suffer serious consequences of the disease. Studies in humans and in animal models show that prenatal exposure to adverse maternal nutrition is linked to postnatal metabolic dysfunctions such as obesity, insulin resistance and hyperlipidemia, all associated with NAFLD. Moreover, epidemiological data have shown a positive correlation between NAFLD in adolescents and maternal pre-pregnancy obesity and pregnancy weight gain. Together, this suggests that fetal nutrition may program offspring prenatally to develop NAFLD after birth. By investigating the effects of a maternal high fat diet on hepatic health in offspring, this projects targets the hypothesis that a high fat diet during gestation sensitizes offspring towards a NAFLD NASH phenotype, promoting disease frequency and severity, potentially affecting the response to intervention. Using the guinea pig NAFLD NASH model, disease parameters and progression is studied in vivo with particular attention to offspring metabolic expression profile and histopathological hallmarks of disease.
