PhD Scholarships at the Centre for Advanced Studies in Biomedical Innovation Law (CeBIL), Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen

CeBIL, Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, is seeking to appoint two PhD researchers for a fully funded three-year period. We are looking for candidates with innovative and original ideas, and we strive for excellence in quality and originality.

The successful candidate can commence from 1 November 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

About CeBIL
The Centre for Advanced Studies in Biomedical Innovation Law (CeBIL) explores the legal challenges and the rapid developments in the biotechnological area. CeBIL brings together scholars from some of the world’s leading research institutions in interdisciplinary collaboration as well as stakeholders from industry, government and civil society. Alongside other projects, CeBIL hosts the Collaborative Research Programme for Biomedical Innovation Law (CeBIL Programme). This 5-year research programme (2018-22) is supported by a grant of DKK 35 million from the Novo Nordisk Foundation and involves partners from Cambridge, Harvard Law School, Harvard Medical School, Michigan, and the UCPH IFRO.

The CeBIL Programme focuses on innovation inefficiencies on the life science frontiers through five concrete interrelated studies. The common aim of the five studies is to optimize legal concepts into enabling tools that will help bring novel technologies, research, and biomedicine together for radical innovation – thereby providing much-needed contribution to bridging bio-pharmaceutical innovation gaps, enhancing translational medicine, and promoting technology transfer. An overarching study on Policy & Synergy will ensure continuous knowledge exchange and synergy across the five concrete studies. For further details, see www.cebil.dk

PhD project

The PhD researcher will be expected to work on either Study 1 or Study 6. The CeBIL management reserves, however, the right to recruit candidates for one of the other four studies instead should their academic profile and research plan provide an even better fit for the CeBIL Programme as a whole.

Study 1: Antibiotics

Antibiotic resistance is the ability of bacteria to combat the action of one or more antibiotics. Humans and animals do not become resistant to antibiotics, but bacteria carried by humans and animals can. Each year, 33,000 people die from an infection due to bacteria resistant to antibiotics. The burden of infections with bacteria resistant to antibiotics on the European population is comparable to that of in?uenza, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS combined (see also here). Antibiotic resistance presents a serious health crisis, from which no one of us is spared, and it requires urgent attention (for more info, see here). For a variety of reasons, innovation in antibiotics has stalled, which compounds even more the health crisis we are faced with. One of the main obstacles (apart from scientific challenges) seems to be the lack of incentives for the pharmaceutical industry to invest in the development of new antibiotics. Against the background of increasing antibiotic resistance and inadequate market incentives, Study 1 will evaluate the legal implications of a number of “push” and “pull” options to tackle these challenges. This includes ?nancial incentives, such as speci?c IP protection and market exclusivities, health impact funds, crowd-funding, pre-competitive collaborations, PPPs between academia and the industry, and other innovative alternatives, such as “integrated” strategies based on prizes administered by reimbursement systems that require compliance with conservation targets. Some of the key questions which need to be addressed are the following ones:
a) To what extent is there a need to curtail and combine particular push and pull incentives to different classes of antibiotic resistance?

b) What are the pros and cons of purely market-based incentives in comparison to delinkage models in the ?ght against antibiotic resistance?

c) To what extent would so-called complementary approaches, more public-private collaboration, or “integrated strategies” be helpful in European settings compared to the US and what legal changes would be required to implement such approaches?

d) Do we need to reconsider the already available incentives and de?nitions in the current “antibiotics” legislation in light of new scienti?c insights and bio-medical applications?

e) What potential do new forms of therapies based on gene-editing, such as CRISPR-Cas 9 and gene drive, and phage technologies have in the ?ght against AMR and what are the legal and ethical dimensions?

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is interested in pursuing doctoral research which can make a difference in society. It is a research project of immense relevance. As a PhD researcher, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the quest for a solution to this health crisis. Moreover, you will be able to work in an intellectually very stimulating and pleasant environment, and you will have the opportunity to work under the supervision of and with some of the finest experts in the area of biomedical innovation law, both in Copenhagen and in partner institutions such as Harvard University.



Study 6: Policy & Synergy


Study 6 aims to develop a framework that integrates law, ethical considerations, economics, science, business, and policy to support biomedical innovation. It includes a legal sub-study entitled “Towards an Improved and Sustainable Legal Framework for Biomedical Innovation”, which will address the following key research questions:

a) What common legal principles can be derived from each of the five concrete studies and how can they be synthesised and organized to form a conceptual framework with a sound underlying legal theory that can be translated into recommendations for new legislation?

b) How can those legal ?ndings be applied to inform and shape both general innovation policy debates and more speci?c debates, such as on the role that alternative R&D incentives could play in the raging controversy over the patentability of biomedical products and methods?

c) What is the proper role for ethical considerations, e.g. on patient rights and access to medicines?

In that context, Study 6 considers also potential disruptions of the existing biomedical value chains through digitalization and artificial intelligence, and assesses the opportunities and risks that these new technologies entail. A question that merits particular attention is: To what extent may digital technologies help enhance innovation, address innovation inefficiencies, and adopt an adaptive governance of the emerging technologies addressed in Studies 1-5 and what are the legal issues? While offering amazing possibilities, there is no doubt that these technologies raise many legal questions with regard to intellectual property, liability, patient involvement, bias, discrimination, competition etc. The successful candidate is expected to focus on this cross-cutting AI dimension of Study 6 in collaboration with senior researchers at CeBIL and its partner institutions.

Directed from the University of Oslo, the project involves a consortium of ten institutions across Europe, among them the University of Copenhagen (UCPH). The Department of Political Science at UCPH which co-directs EU3D Work Package 2 - Problematic forms of EU internal differentiation , has a project vacancy for a two-year Postdoctoral researcher starting on 1 February 2020. The many crises and challenges that the EU has faced over the last decade have exposed the EU s vulnerability to volatile markets, an increasingly unpredictable global geopolitical scene, and increased domestic opposition. EU3D focuses on differentiation, which is not tied to any specific direction of change but encompasses both integration and disintegration. All modern political systems are differentiated the EU distinctly so. The problem is that the EU that emerged from the financial and refugee crises is associated with less democracy and more dominance. EU3D understands dominance as arbitrary rule. Dominance can be an unintended consequence of action. EU3D sets out to specify the conditions under which differentiation is politically acceptable, institutionally sustainable, and democratically legitimate. Equally important, EU3D specifies the conditions under which it is not, in other words when conditions of dominance prevail. Work package 2 (WP2) of EU3D is concerned with the identification and assessment of those forms of EU differentiation that are most closely associated with dominance. WP2 s research will seek to understand the sources of these forms of differentiation and place them into historical context. To that end, WP2 provides a diagnosis of the present post-crisis situation landscape of internal differentiation in the EU, and assess which of these forms is most closely associated with dominance. WP2 is particularly interested in teasing out the extent to which crises (especially the Eurozone crisis and the refugee crises) have acted as external differentiating shocks and or the extent to which current types of differentiation have pre-crisis roots. More specifically, the successful applicant will be expected to work on the question of whether external shocks to the EU system have been generative of new forms of dominance within the EU, or whether recent crises have amplified aspects of illicit hierarchy within the EU structure. Of particular interest here are the role and sources of non-majoritarian forms of decision-making, their relationship to recent crises and or their roots within European integration more broadly. The work will involve the analysis of a range of textual and interview sources. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the organization of a workshop in mid-2020. He or she will co-edit a special issue of the resulting papers and be expected to contribute peer-reviewed journal articles in key areas of WP2. He or she will also contribute to the wider work of EU3D, including participation in relevant workshops and conferences. Qualifications The position is aimed at applicants who have obtained their PhD in political science or a related field. The applicants should have proven research experience and academic publications in political science and or cognate fields or. Furthermore, the applicants should have demonstrable expertise in one or several of the following areas: Comparative and or international political economy, with an interest in the history of ideas and their institutional expression EU studies, including the history and theory of European integration, EU institutions and governance Qualitative (and, where relevant, quantitative) methods as applied to this project Considerable weight will be accorded to the ability to conduct independent research, scientific excellence, critical and creative thinking as well as the ability to work across sub-fields and disciplines and be a genuine team-player. Experience of teaching and active participation in the international research community, such as organizing workshops, seminars and academic conferences is seen as a merit.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher to join the multi-disciplinary groups of bioinformatics, biology & medicine

Our research/The group

We aim to further our understanding of the genome by integrating large-scale genomic datasets. We develop computational methods to exploit multi-dimensional genomic/epigenomic/transcriptomic landscapes to understand cell-type specific or spatio-temporal gene regulation. Using computational integrative approaches, we also study transcriptional mechanisms controlling cell differentiation and cell identify. Our areas of research include studying gene regulations in adipocyte, liver, cancer cells and stem cell differentiation.

For this, we develop computational algorithms for various genome scale datasets including DNA methylation, single cell RNAseq, ChIP-exo, GROseq and HiC. More information is found at https://www.bric.ku.dk/Research/won-group/.
