Postdoctoral researcher in experimental diabetes research

The Knudsen laboratory at the Section for Cell Biology and Physiology, at the Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen is looking for a postdoctoral researcher. The position is for two years including a probation period.

The Knudsen Lab is seeking a highly motivated and talented person to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of type 2 diabetes. The successful applicant will play a key role in a research project aimed at understanding the regulation of glucagon secretion in diabetes. Our lab use confocal time-lapse imaging combined with functional studies in mouse and human islets, to understand the mechanisms underlying dysregulation of islet hormone secretion in diabetes. We combine these experiments with in vivo phenotyping of genetically modified mouse models to understand how whole-body phenotypes are altered by changes in islet hormone secretion.

The common focal point of the Section for Cell Biology and Physiology is to understand mechanisms underlying disease development and adaptations to environmental stimuli. There are 12 groups in the section focusing on topics ranging from cancer biology to metabolic disease, exercise and adaptations to extreme environments. This provides a stimulating scientific environment with multiple possibilities for collaboration and exploration of disease biology.

The researcher will be part of the larger research project Explaining Transnational Jihad Patterns of Escalation and Containment funded by the European Research Council. The Project The overall project that the postdoc researcher will be part of aims at advancing an understanding of how jihadist conflicts become transnational and under what circumstances they can be contained. The project also aims at developing an interdisciplinary analytical framework, which combines micro- and macro level approaches to jihadism, drawing from both Religious Studies, Security Studies and Peace & Conflict Studies. With its focus on macro-level conflict structures, the ambition is to develop a new framework for thinking about containment, providing an alternative to both the micro-level countering discourses embraced by much of the radicalization research, and the containment thinking that stems from the treatment of jihadist conflicts as civil wars in the peace and conflict literature. The overall project has four main components 1) a quantitative examination of transnationalization processes drawing from among others the Religion and Armed Conflicts (RELAC) dataset UCDP hosted by Uppsala University, 2) comparative case studies of the mechanisms of escalation and de-escalation of jihadist conflicts in Syria Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Mali Niger, Pakistan Afghanistan focusing particularly on the movements of Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, the Taleban, and Boko Haram, 3) securitization analyses of the macro-level conflict structures that transnational jihadist movements tap into, and finally 4) sociotheological worldview analyses of potential changes in jihadist conflict imagery during transnationalization processes. The applicant is particularly expected to contribute to component 2 and 4 with an emphasis on investigating the escalation and containment dynamics that relate to theological interpretations and religious worldviews.

330040511Postdoctoral fellow: EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy (EU3D)Robot Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen EU Differentiation, Dominance and Democracy (EU3D) - https: www.eu3d.uio.no research index.html - is a new research project funded by the European Union s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. 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. Responsibilities The Postdoctoral fellow is expected to: Engage in and participate actively in the development of EU3D and in particular the academic activities associated with WP2, including collaborate in refining the project design and methodology and further developing the theoretical framework Collect, code and analyze relevant empirical material (e.g. observations, interviews, official documents, other qualitative data). Conduct field research in Brussels and selected European capitals (travel money covered by the project) Prepare and participate in joint publications and workshops and help make an impact on the scholarly and public debate on the puzzles of differentiation, dominance and democracy Contribute to and benefit from the flourishing intellectual life of the Centre for European Politics and other relevant groups within the department and to the Department of Political Science more broadly Carry out administrative and coordination duties associated with the project, including interim reporting to the European Commission Teach and supervise students at the department Application Please click on the Apply now icon at the bottom of the page. The application must be written in English and should contain a CV, a short motivation letter (maximum 2 pages), a list of publications, a maximum number of three scientific works, of which only one may be a monograph or compilation thesis and a copy of the doctoral certificate. Application procedure After the expiry of the deadline for applications, applicants are selected for assessment on the advice of the Appointment Committee. All applicants are then immediately notified whether an expert assessment committee has passed their application for assessment. Selected applicants are notified of the composition of the committee and each applicant has the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that relates to the applicant him herself.
