PhD fellowship(s) in virus-host interactions

The University seeks to appoint one or more PhD student(s) to the Department of Immunology and Microbiology (ISIM) to work at CO-HEP to commence as soon as possible.

Information on the Department can be found at: www.isim.ku.dk

Our group and research

During the PhD, you will be working on the molecular and cell biology of RNA virus infections. You will join the group of Associate Professor Troels Scheel, who leads a research team of currently seven scientists. Our group is part of Copenhagen Hepatitis C Program (CO-HEP, headed by Professor Jens Bukh) with around 35 researchers and affiliated with Department of Immunology and Microbiology (ISIM), University of Copenhagen and with Department of Infectious Diseases, Hvidovre Hospital. Your primary work location will be at the university. Our work environment is ambitious, dynamic and international.

Project description

RNA viruses are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. Pathogens of our interest include hepatitis viruses, flaviviruses (e.g. yellow fever, zika), picornaviruses (e.g. polio, coxsackie), alphaviruses (e.g. sindbis, chikungunya) and animal pathogens such as pestiviruses. We have specific interest in virus-host interactions, including RNA interactions that are becoming increasingly important. Some, such as that of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and the micro-RNA, miR-122, are emerging as therapeutic targets. We recently identified and characterized similar interactions for other viruses. Much, however, remains to be understood on RNA interactions during infection. Another interest is animal models for HCV using the recently discovered HCV-related hepaciviruses in rodents and horses.

Your project on virus-host interactions will be defined together with your supervisor, Troels Scheel, and will involve methodology such as virus cultivation, molecular biology assays, functional characterization, translation and replication reporter assays, crosslinking immune-precipitation (CLIP), RNA-seq and related methods. You will be expected to actively participate in method development and development of the project. A high level of motivation, ambition and involvement will be expected.

Principal supervisor is Associate Professor Troels K. H. Scheel, Copenhagen Hepatitis C Program (CO-HEP), Department of Immunology and Microbiology, tscheel@sund.ku.dk +45 25122771

Troels Scheel was appointed Associate Professor at University of Copenhagen in April 2016 after completing his postdoc at Charles Rice’ laboratory at The Rockefeller University in 2015. He was awarded Starting Grants from the Danish Council for Independent Research and the European Research Council (ERC). Jens Bukh has led CO-HEP for 14 years and was awarded advanced grants from The Danish Council for Independent Research and the Novo Nordisk Foundation and received the Novo Nordisk Prize.

We are offering a PhD fellowship in Porcine Herd Health Management commencing 1 March 2020 or as soon as possible hereafter.



Our group and research
Our research group is working within different areas of Porcine Herd Helath Management, including herd diagnostics, intestinal infections, antibiotic use and umbilical hernias.
