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.

330052890PhD fellowship in Food MicrobiologyRobot Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences (SUND), University of Copenhagen We are offering a PhD fellowship in food microbiology commencing 1 October 2019 or as soon as possible hereafter. Our group and research Our group include currently one professor, one associate professor, one post-doctoral fellow and three PhD students. We focus on public veterinary health which include the issue of food control as well as various aspects of bacterial pathogenic and spoilage bacteria and their effects on food safety and quality. Project description The PhD student will work on an investigation of the usability of an objective chemical criteria aiming at reducing food waste due to microbial spoilage. Microbial spoilage of meat and fish products is a result of unconstrained bacterial growth after slaughter catch. Direct enumeration of bacteria is the only way that the industry can know if their product is of satisfactory microbial quality, however it is expensive, time consuming and ultimately imprecise. The sell-by date or best before date (coming before the use-by date) is usually estimated by inaccurate non-objective sensory analysis methods and or based on a set number of days before the defined use-by date. These estimations are not fitted to the precise conditions of storage or treatment of the producer. In terms of alternative methods with clear future potential, production of biogenic amines by microorganisms in and on meat and fish might be successfully exploited as pronounced spoilage markers, since the concentration of these potentially correlate with the numbers of spoilage bacterial. The specific aim of this project is to use the level of biogenic amines in different types of Chinese and Danish meat and fish products under various storage conditions as an objective chemical criterion. For the PhD project, three main activities are planned: To unravel the similarities and differences in sensory characteristics and content of biogenic amines and bacteria producing those compounds in selected Danish and Chinese foods. To conduct microbial and molecular - including metagenomic - characterization of the bacterial flora in the products examined in part 1 in order to characterize their spoilage potential and usability in terms of establishing a quality criteria based on biogenic amines. Challenge experiments including selected Danish and Chinese food products to establish quality criteria and shelf-life based on content of biogenic amines. Usage of a prototype sensor for this purpose will also be examined. The PhD study will potentially demonstrate a technology that will be more accurate, cheaper and far quicker than any of the current technologies to assess quality and shelf-life of Chinese and Danish food products. The safe extension of these dates will have direct and significant impact in waste reduction in production, retail and private households.
