PhD fellowship in beta-cell mitochondrial dynamics at the Immuno-endocrinology laboratory

We are offering a PhD fellowship fully funded by the Independent Danish Research Council in beta-cell mitochondrial dynamics at the Immuno-endocrinology laboratory, Department of Biomedical Sciences, commencing 1 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Our group and research (see https://bmi.ku.dk/english/research/immuno_endocrinology/)

We work to prevent and cure type 1 and type 2 diabetes by targeting the inflammatory pathways leading to pancreatic beta-cell failure. Ongoing projects define the transcriptional, translational and posttranslational responses of the pancreatic beta-cell to immune, inflammatory, metabolic and oxidative stress, with the aim of identifying novel therapeutic targets to be tested in preclinical models and clinical trials.

We typically employ two complementary schemes: a hypothesis-driven approach evolving from new discoveries in the lab, and an unbiased screening approach employing systems biology and using functional genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and post-translatomics.

Our translational experimental strategy is to move from insulin-producing cell-lines to primary intact or dispersed islets to human islet experiments, the latter mainly used to confirm critical observations from cell lines and rodent islets. Studies also involve animal and clinical studies.

The group comprises ~15 members (the PI, an associate, professor, a part time lab technician, postdocs, PhD students, master’s-, exchange- and bachelor’s-students.

The group and entire floor is highly international with members of ~10 different nationalities. English is the daily language. We entertain several regular social activities at the department, floor and group level.

Project description
Type 1 diabetes results from immune-mediated β-cell damage leading to insufficient functional β-cell mass to meet peripheral insulin demands. β-cells rely upon mitochondrial respiration to generate the energy necessary for insulin synthesis, processing, and secretion. Immune-mediated cytokine release also leads to generation of intracellular reactive oxygen species and mitochondrial damage, which ultimately result in β-cell apoptosis. Indeed, defects in mitochondrial structure and function have been reported in the β-cells of patients with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Defects in mitochondrial structure and function are characteristic of impairments in mitophagy, a selective form of autophagy necessary for elimination of dysfunctional mitochondria; however, the role of mitophagy in type 1 diabetes pathogenesis is not well understood. Our collaborators at the University of Michigan (PI Scott Soleimanpour) previously discovered a key role for the T1D susceptibility gene Clec16a in control of glucose homeostasis in humans and mice through its regulation of β-cell mitophagy. Therefore, our goal is to dissect the mechanistic and physiologic regulation of Clec16a-mediated mitophagy in β-cells to elucidate its contribution to diabetes pathogenesis.

Principal supervisor is Thomas Mandrup-Poulsen, Professor, MD, DMSc, Director of the Immuno-endocrinology laboratory, Department of Biomedical Sciences, tmpo@sund.ku.dk, Direct Phone +45 30330387.

PhD fellow positions in Computational studies of protein stability, degradation and interactions

Three or more PhD scholarships are available from 1 September 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter, in the PRISM centre, Department of Biology, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The research within PRISM bridges protein biophysics and genomics using computational and experimental methods.

The PhD projects in this call are focused on computational and data analysis aspects of PRISM, and research areas include structural bioinformatics, molecular simulations, analysis of multiplexed-assays of variant effects, machine learning and protein-sequence analyses. Separate calls are available for postdoctoral positions in both computational and experimental parts of PRISM.

About the centre and research environment

The positions are part of the newly established Centre called PRISM: Protein Interactions and Stability in Medicine and Genomics, funded via a six-year Novo Nordisk Foundation Challenge grant. The overarching hypothesis behind PRISM is that by combining the latest developments in structural biology, protein folding, high-throughput experiments, computational biophysics and genomics we may transform our current view of how genomic variation perturbs the stability, folding and function of proteins. In turn, we can use such information to understand, diagnose and ultimately treat human diseases. PRISM is a collaboration between three research groups at the Department of Biology, Copenhagen (led by Kresten Lindorff-Larsen, Amelie Stein, Rasmus Hartmann-Petersen), and Michele Vendruscolo (University of Cambridge, UK), Douglas M. Fowler (University of Washington, US) and Torben Hansen (Novo Nordisk Foundation centre for Basic Metabolic Research, DK).

The Ph.D. students will work in the groups of Kresten Lindorff-Larsen or Amelie Stein, both located in the Department of Biology in central Copenhagen. The two research groups are members of the highly interdisciplinary and collaborative research environment at the Linderstrøm-Lang Centre for Protein Science. The Ph.D. students will work together with scientists from a number of disciplines, and also have the possibility of spending time in one or more of the partner laboratories within PRISM. The groups are highly international and a good level of spoken and written English is required.

Details of the PhD projects

The PhD students will work on one or more of the subprojects within PRISM. Long-term goals include developing predictive and mechanistic models for how genomic variation in protein-coding regions (protein variants) affect the stability, interactions and function of proteins.

PhD Position in Bioimaging of Artificial Skin Models

A PhD scholarship in Bioimaging and Artificial skin models is available in the laboratory of Associate Professor Jonathan R. Brewer, situated at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. The position is to be filled by 15 August 2019 or soon thereafter. Application deadline: 19 July 2019.

Outstanding candidates with experience in 3D cell culturing and optical microscopy techniques, such as live cell spinning disk/confocal and Coherent anti Stokes Raman Scattering, with an education in molecular biology, biochemistry, bio-physics and similar areas are invited to apply. Candidates should have a strong background in molecular biology. Knowledge and experience of advanced optical microscopy is desired, but can be acquired during the PhD.
The selected candidate will be working on an interdisciplinary project combining molecular biology, and bioimaging to develop and quantify artificial skin models. Artificial skin models offer unique possibilities of studying cellular behaviour in skin-related diseases. Different artificial models exist, the most complex termed full-thickness. Full-thickness models consist of both epidermis and dermis and is generated by seeding epidermal keratinocytes on a collagen matrix in which dermal fibroblasts are embedded. This type of model therefore enables studies of the interactions between these two cell types. In this research project, the aim is to establish an artificial full-thickness skin cancer model with the purpose of studying tumor growth in skin. The first step in this process will be the successful generation of a full-thickness model based on human keratinocytes and fibroblasts. Once one such model is established, the next step is to incorporate cancerous skin cells into the model to establish a tumor. The project will make use of advanced bioimaging techniques to elucidate the cellular mechanisms upon tumor growth as well as the consequences that follow for both the epidermis and the dermis.
For further information please contact Associate Professor Jonathan Brewer, tel.: +45 6550 3505, e-mail: brewer@bmb.sdu.dk.

Application, salary etc.
Appointment as a PhD Research Fellow is for three years. Employment stops automatically at the end of the period. The holder of the scholarship is not allowed to have other paid employment during the three-year period.

The successful applicant will be employed in accordance with the agreement of 10 November 2015 on salaried PhD scholars between the Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Please check links for more information on salary and taxation.

Postdoc Position in Internationally Recognized Proteomics/PTMomics Research Group

Title: Development of a semi-automated biomarker discovery platform for clinical proteomics.

Background:
Quantitative proteomics technologies hold a great potential to discover, validate and accurately quantify protein disease biomarkers in body fluids and primary tissues. However, cell dynamics and survival are highly linked with cellular signalling pathways that are regulated and controlled by post-translational modifications (PTMs) of proteins. In fact, about 5% of all proteins in the cell are enzymes capable of modulating the more than 400 known PTMs found in human cells.

Since most diseases are developed due to perturbation in cellular signalling pathways, it is reasonable to believe that alterations in PTMs would have a much greater disease biomarker potential than alteration in protein expression in general.
The purpose of the project is to develop a robust quantitative proteomics platform for the identification and validation of selected PTMs of proteins that can be used to confidently identify biomarkers in clinical proteomics for the diagnosis of the disease, the stratification of patients according to their disease endotype or to monitor therapeutic responses to specific treatments in individual patients, personalized medicine.

Location of the project:
The project is located in the research group of Professor Martin R. Larsen, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark.
The Larsen research group is part of the Protein Research Group (PRG) at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) in Odense, Denmark. Odense is located only about one hour from the main capital of Denmark, Copenhagen. The PRG was founded 44 years ago by the recognized protein and biological mass spectrometry researcher Professor Peter Roepstorff and is internationally recognized for their contributions within biological mass spectrometry, proteomics, biomedical research and clinical proteomics. The PRG consist today of a large research environment with nine individual research groups and more than 60 scientists, postdocs and students who share facilities and research environment. The PRG has a fantastic student environment with many multicultural inputs.
The PRG has the newest mass spectrometers for biological mass spectrometry applications including two Fusion Lumos, three Q-Exactive HF and one Q-Exactive HFX. In addition, the PRG has a large fully equipped protein chemistry/proteomics laboratory, cell laboratory facilities and bioinformatics that will be available for the present project.

The Larsen group has for the past 20 years developed a large number of methods for assessment of PTMs in proteomics, including the Titanium Dioxide method (Larsen MR et al., Mol. Cell. Proteomics 2005) used by many research groups worldwide for isolation of phosphorylated peptides for characterization of signal transduction pathways in mammalian systems. The Larsen group research focus is centered on investigation of the role of PTMs in system biology and biomedicine and development of new innovative methods for assessment of PTMs in biological samples. The Larsen group has a significant amount of national and international collaborations and is publishing in higher ranging journals.

Professor Larsen is head of the Centre for Clinical Proteomics (CCP) in Odense which is a collaboration between the University of Southern Denmark and the Odense University Hospital. Through CCP we have access to a large number of patient cohorts and human clinical samples.
Qualifications
A successful candidate would have a PhD degree in biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, proteomics or a related field and is highly motivated and innovative. A candidate with significant experience in functional proteomics, post-translational modification analysis, LC-based mass spectrometry and bioinformatics is preferable. Excellent communication and writing skills and an ability to interact socially and scientifically with other laboratory members and collaborators are essential. Previous postdoc experience and a strong publication record are also strong merits.
Starting date: 1 September 2019 or soon after. The position is limited to two years’ duration. Application deadline: 15 August 2019.
For further information please contact Professor Martin R. Larsen, PhD, e-mail: mrl@bmb.sdu.dk.

Doctoral (PhD) student position in pain research

Karolinska Institutet,

At the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology we teach and conduct internationally acclaimed, high-quality research in Physiology, Pharmacology, Anesthesiology and Intensive care. We have around 400 employees, 30 research groups, and 90 doctoral students. Our research fields include cellular signaling, cardiovascular and respiratory systems, neuropsychopharmacology, neuroinflammation, pharmacogenetics, regenerative medicine, Renal System, anesthesiology and intensive care, muscle physiology and pain. Our collaboration with the clinics at Karolinska University Hospital provides unique opportunities for translational research within our subjects. More information about research at http://ki.se/fyfa_english

A doctoral student is admitted to third-cycle/doctoral education. A doctoral education consists of supervised research, combined with courses and other educational activities. An individual study plan is established for each doctoral student. For a doctoral degree, the equivalent of four years of full-time doctoral education is required.

We are recruiting a doctoral (PhD) student. For more information regarding doctoral education at Karolinska Institutet (KI), see: http://ki.se/en/phd/about-doctoral-education-at-ki

Research group
The overall research mission for the molecular pain research group led by Prof. Camilla Svensson is to advance our understanding of how pain is induced and sustained, in particular in conditions with persistent pain such as in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. In this context, we are exploring novel links between the adaptive immune system, activation of osteoclasts and satellite glial cells and regulation of pain signal transmission. Intracellular signaling pathways that are activated or deactivated in this process are being dissected and studied in relation to persistent pain. We use a number of behavioral, immunological, immunohistochemical, electrophysiological and molecular biological techniques to dissect pain pathways in vivo and in cell culture systems. The research group (10 PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and staff members) collaborate with preclinical as well as clinical researchers not only within Karolinska Institutet, but also at other Swedish and international universities. See below for more specific information about the doctoral education project and the duties of the student.

About the BonePain Network

We have 1 open positions for PhD fellows in the EU-funded Innovative Training Network BonePainII (www.bonepain.eu). BonePainII is a European Innovative Training Network to promote frontline research, innovation and education within bone pain. Millions in Europe and beyond suffer from bone pain, which is a debilitating complication of many musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis and bone metastasis. The BonePainII network has participants from 6 European countries and encompasses 8 academic groups and 4 industries all committed to creating an outstanding training program for 15 early stage researchers (ESRs) to elucidate the mechanisms of bone pain and develop new medicines.

The project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 814244.

Project title: Autoantibodies and osteoclasts – novel links to chronic pain in rheumatoid arthritis

The main focus of the current PhD project will be to examine which and how autoantibodies derived from RA-patients’ B-cells induce pain hypersensitivity and increase neuronal excitability via activation of osteoclasts. There will be a specific focus on new disease-associated autoantibodies and the long-term consequence of these autoantibodies on the sensory nervous system. The student will work from both a cellular (pain neurons, osteoclasts, and B cell) and molecular (microRNA and long non-coding RNA) perspective and the project is placed in the interphase between neuroscience, immunology and bone biology. The student will  learn several techniques for analysis of joint pathology and bone erosion and immunological and molecular biological tools applied to cell culture systems . The project also includes in vivo behavioural assays and analysis of patient samples. The student will be part of a larger research network in Stockholm consisting of preclinical and clinical researchers.

The aim of the research group is to understand how lipoprotein metabolism is regulated in humans by endogenous (genetic) and exogenous (hormones, diet) mechanisms and how this may influence diseases such as cardiovascular, hepatic and metabolic diseases.

The doctoral education project and the duties of the student
Diabetic dyslipidaemia involves both quantitative and qualitative circulating lipoprotein abnormalities that result in a shift towards a more atherogenic lipid profile. The interstitium represents the immediate surrounding environment of most cells in the body and its composition and functional properties should therefore be of high relevance in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes (T2D). The goal of this project is to further elucidate the link between peripheral lipoprotein metabolism occurring in both blood and interstitium and the potential mechanisms contributing to accelerated atherogenesis in T2D. The project will encompass studies of the functionality of lipoproteins, reverse cholesterol transport and peripheral cholesterol metabolism in both humans and animals. The PhD student will be involved in planning/designing and performing experiments; analyzing/interpreting the data and presenting the results at national and international meetings.

Postdoc in Terrestrial Ecology, Department of Biology

A 1.5-year postdoc position in Terrestrial Ecology with a focus on moss-cyanobacteria associations is available at the Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, commencing 01.12.2019 or shortly thereafter.

Description of the scientific environment

The successful applicant will be based at the Terrestrial Ecology Section, thereby joining a lively research environment covering a wide range of topics such as plant ecophysiology, biogeochemistry, soil biology and ecosystem-atmosphere interactions. Our section is a diverse group comprising research and teaching staff members, laboratory technicians, PhD candidates and MSc and BSc students, focussing on many aspects of plant and microbial activity, soil nutrient cycling and global change. The successful candidate will be hosted by Assistant Professor Kathrin Rousk and will join the newly established Ecosystem Ecology group focussing on moss-cyanobacteria associations in pristine ecosystems. Professor Anders Priemé, Section of Microbiology, will co-host the successful applicant.

Overall description of the project

The postdoctoral position is part of a 4-year research project financed by the Independent Research Fund Denmark, Sapere Aude Starting Grant, led by Kathrin Rousk.

The aim of the project is to identify the abiotic (moisture and temperature) and biotic controls of moss-associated nitrogen fixation in samples collected from ecosystems with contrasting climates. The project involves fieldwork campaigns in boreal forests (Northern Sweden) and tropical cloud forests (South America) as well as laboratory approaches (e.g. nitrogen fixation assays, transcriptomics). For this 1.5-year postdoctoral project, the main goal is to place moss-cyanobacteria associations along the parasitism-mutualism continuum. This will be achieved by sequencing the transcriptome of the partners (moss and cyanobacteria) when they grow in unison vs. when they grow individually. The transcripts will be compared to transcripts from well-known symbiotic associations (e.g. legume-rhizobia) alongside measurements of growth and nitrogen fixation to ascertain the degree of mutualism or parasitism in this association.

Main tasks and responsibilities

Planning experiments, growing and culturing of mosses and cyanobacteria, RNA isolation from mosses and cyanobacteria, N2 fixation measurements, data analyses, data interpretation, and manuscript writing.

Qualifications

We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious candidate with a PhD degree in Biology, Ecology, Evolution, Environmental Genomics, or similar fields. Fluency in written and spoken English is a requirement, as well as excellent writing skills demonstrated by the publication record, as well as good communication skills. Candidates with skills and expertise listed below will be preferred.

Skills/expertise

Planning experimental setups, DNA and RNA isolation, preparation of RNA for cDNA sequencing, analysis of transcriptomic data, data analysis using R and Python, multivariate statistics, project coordination, plant and/or bacterial cultivation and growth.

For further information about the position, please contact Kathrin Rousk (kathrin.rousk@bio.ku.dk).  

Further information on the Department can be found here: http://www.science.ku.dk/english/about-the-faculty/organisation.
