About the research project

The Laboratory for Renal Cell Remodeling and Regeneration, headed by Assistant Professor and Novo Nordisc Emerging Investigator Ina Maria Schiessl (https://biomed.au.dk/schiessl-lab), is looking for an outstanding postdoc to explore endothelial cell plasticity in diabetes. The project demands a multi-disciplinary approach and combination of state-of-the-art technologies, including endothelial cell isolation and enrichment, single cell RNA sequencing, in vivo 2-photon microscopy and immunohistology. Excellent experimental methodological skill and dedication will be necessary for successfully conducting the project. The goal of the study is to discover novel pathways and pharmaceutic targets of endothelial cell plasticity in vivo.

Your job responsibilities

Based on our preliminary results you will further develop your own project and investigate endothelial cell plasticity in different stages of diabetic kidney disease. You will collaborate with other members of the laboratory and with our core collaborators at the institute, and you will be expected to develop expertise in areas necessary for successful progress of your project.

As Postdoc in vascular biology and inflammation your position is primarily research-based but may also involve teaching assignments. You will contribute to the development of the department through research of high international quality. In your daily work, you will work closely with colleagues on your project, where you will receive supervision and guidance. The work related to the project will take place at the Department of Biomedicine, and the successful candidate will be integrated into the department. You will report to Assistant Professor Ina Maria Schiessl.

Your competences

As a person, you are ambitious, take ownership and possess good communication and interpersonal skills. We expect you to be fluent in oral and written English.

You hold a Ph.D. degree in molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, molecular pharmacology or closely related disciplines.

You have experience with single cell transcriptomics and analysis using R or Python.

You have experience with cell isolation and fluorescent activated cell sorting

You have solid cell culture experience

You have experience with image processing software, such as ImageJ, Imaris, Amira etc.

You have a proven scientific track-record, a thorough understanding of vascular biology, and preferentially kidney physiology and diabetes.

Experience with mouse handling is beneficial

In order to be assessed as qualified for a Postdoc position, you must meet these academic criteria.

Shortlisting will be used.

Questions about the position
If you have any questions about the position, please contact Ina Maria Schiessl, ina.maria.schiessl@biomed.au.dk, tel.: (+45) 50201222.

Your place of work will be the Department of Biomedicine, Vilh. Meyers Allé 3, DK-8000 Aarhus C, Denmark.

We expect to conduct interviews in July.
