Post doc position in Bioorganic Chemistry

The Novo Nordisk Centre for Multifunctional Biomolecular Drug Design (CEMBID) at the interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre, University of Aarhus, Denmark, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the group of Prof. Kurt V. Gothelf. The position is for two-years starting on 1 August 2020.

The Centre for Multifunctional Biomolecular Drug Design aims to develop new multi-functional drugs. Most drugs used today have only one therapeutic effect and it is both difficult and expensive to manufacture drugs with several functions. The aim of the Centre for Multifunctional Biomolecular Drug Design (CEMBID) is to research into new drugs with multiple mechanisms of action. The centre will develop methods to build modules of different proteins and small molecules that are conjugated to oligonucleotides and that can simply and effectively be linked to make multifunctional drugs. This will pave the way for new types of drugs that potentially are more effective, have fewer side effects, and can be adapted to the individual patient.

Job description
The candidates should have a PhD in chemistry and have experience in organic synthesis, nucleic acid chemistry and solid-phase chemistry, and preferably also protein biochemistry. The project concerns the development of new solid phase methods to produce activated reagents for use in bioconjugation to proteins and DNA. This will involve the preparation of different resins with functional groups that can bind precursors of known bioconjugation warheads, thus allowing rapid preparation of bioconjugation reagents or directly label proteins without the need of purification. The candidates are expected to collaborate with PhD students and co-supervise bachelor and master students.

Place of work and area of Employment
The place of work is the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre (iNANO), Gustav Wieds Vej 14, 8000 Aarhus C, and the area of employment is Aarhus University with related departments.

The iNANO centre is a collaboration between research groups at several departments at Aarhus University.

Application procedure
Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications – and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, – the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants, including the main considerations emphasized during the selection process.

Formalities and salary range
Natural Sciences refers to the Ministerial Order on the Appointment of Academic Staff at Danish Universities under the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here.

Appointment shall be in accordance with the collective labour agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities.

Salary depends on seniority as agreed between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Confederation of Professional Associations.

All interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background. Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.

Aarhus University offers a broad variety of services for international researchers and accompanying families, including relocation service and career counselling to expat partners. Read more here. Please find more information about entering and working in Denmark here.

Aarhus University also offers a Junior Researcher Development Programme targeted at career development for postdocs at AU. You can read more about it here.

The application must be submitted via Aarhus University’s recruitment system, which can be accessed under the job advertisement on Aarhus University's website.
