Postdoc position in Single Cell Transcriptomics with focus on Sleep Biology

Department of Neuroscience, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen

We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic researcher for a 2-year Postdoc position to start October 1st 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Our group and research

The Kornum Lab explores sleep biology in health and disease. Our focus is to understand sleep-wake neurophysiology and how the immune system affects the sleep regulating networks of the brain. We are particularly interested in the hypocretin/orexin neurons, their signaling, and their involvement in the sleep disorder narcolepsy and in sleep-wake regulation during sickness in general. More information about the group can be found at our lab site www.molecularsleeplab.dk and at the department webpage https://in.ku.dk/.

Project description

The postdoctoral fellow will analyse large-scale single cell transcriptomics data from the brains of mice under different sleep stages and during different inflammatory conditions. The datasets are either already available in the lab or will be produced by other researchers/technical staff during the period of employment. The work will be focused on identifying central nervous system mechanisms underlying sleep-wake regulation. Towards that aim, the successful applicant will leverage lab data from in vivo mouse studies and single nuclei RNA sequencing and integrate these with large-scale human genetics data. The fellow will be given the possibility of publishing own data as first author.

Profile

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

  • A PhD degree in biomedical or natural sciences
  • Solid expertise in programming (e.g. Python, R, machine learning)
  • Experience in analysis of RNA sequencing data
  • Basic understanding of human genetics
  • Ideally a basic understanding of sleep biology and neuroscience
  • An ambitious, independent and critical mind-set
  • Excellent English communication skills, both written and oral
Terms of employment

The postdoc position is a full-time position for 2 years. Starting date is as soon as possible or after agreement.

Salary, pension and terms of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and AC (Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Depending on qualifications, a supplement may be negotiated.

Non-Danish and Danish applicants may be eligible for tax reductions, if they hold a PhD degree and have not lived in Denmark the last 10 years.

The positions are covered by the “Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at the Universities” of June 28, 2013.
