PhD fellowship in PICKFOOD at the Niels Bohr Institute

A 3-year PhD fellowship is available at the NIELS BOHR INSTITUTE, UNIVERSITY OF COPENHAGEN, COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, with an expected start in July 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The fellowship is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 956248.

About PICKFOOD
Would you like to start your career in a European training network of leading research universities and professionals from the industry? Then you might be interested in this PhD position, which will enable you to join the PICKFOOD project. PICKFOOD is a top level interdisciplinary training and research programme involving 15 PhD positions across physics, physical chemistry and food science. PICKFOOD aims to create at European level a network of next generation young scientists trained in novel methodologies within Pickering emulsions research enabling the development of safe, healthy and functional foods and at the same time minimizing food waste due to lipid oxidation.

About your project
It is well known that small particles can get trapped at the interface between two fluids. This effect can be used to coat droplets with micro or nano-scale particles, and thereby stabilize emulsions without the use of surfactant molecules, known as Pickering emulsions.

Together with 2 other Early Stage Researchers (to be recruited respectively by Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Aalto University (AALTO)), you will contribute to the implementation of PICKFOOD Work package 3 which focuses on the formation mechanism of stable Pickering emulsions.

Fabrication of new Pickering encapsulates covers development of new materials as well as their characterization not only by standard methods but also by methods not usually accessible by food laboratories including X-rays synchrotron and neutron scattering. The candidate will identify of food-grade particles with potential for Pickering stabilization and possible applications in the food industry. The interactions and assembly behaviour of the selected Pickering-stabilized emulsions will be analysed in the nano-range, as these factors determine the microstructure and are known to influence food structure, rheology and functional properties at the macroscopic scale.

Whereas NTNU will test different combinations of mineral and vegetable oils to evaluate and understand the properties inducing formation of edible oil-in-oil emulsions and AALTO will identify food-grade colloidal particles whose state and morphology can be controlled with temperature and/or pH.

Mobility within the PICKFOOD European Training Network is of high importance and you are therefore expected to spend 3 months at Bether Encapsulates (BEC in the Netherlands) for exploring novel approaches for encapsulation process , 6 months at NTNU for Small Angle X-rays Scattering  studies for verifying the encapsulation and extent of release and one month at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP, Brazil) to evaluate the relationship between interfacial dilatational rheology and actives bio accessibility encapsulated in Pickering emulsions evaluated by in vitro digestion techniques.

The candidate will be enrolled at the Niels Bohr Institute (https://nbi.ku.dk/) at the University of Copenhagen. The graduate program requires the student to obtain 30 ECTS points during the three-year period in order to graduate. Mandatory courses/schools are the Course for responsible conduct of research (1.5 ECTS) and an Introduction to University Pedagogy course (3 ECTS). A broad set of PhD courses are offered (https://phdcourses.ku.dk/).

Postdoc of “Field scale root phenotyping methods for grass breeding”

Department of Plant and Environmental Science, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a Postdoc position of “Field scale root phenotyping methods for grass breeding” commencing 01.04.2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for 2 ½ years.

Description of the scientific environment
The Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences conducts fundamental research and has a strong focus on applying basic science to solve real world challenges, primarily within the plant, soil and environmental sciences. Research and teaching cover natural resources, agriculture, biotechnology and synthetic biology from the molecular level to the ecosystem scale.

The research group Crop Physiology and Production Systems aims to do research focusing on plant growth and quality at the crop, crop rotation, and cropping system level. We work with the development of plants for food, feed, and biomass production. Optimization of crop production and quality include improvement of plant potential through breeding, based on studies of genetic diversity including new crop species. More information about the research group is available at: https://plen.ku.dk/english/research/crop_sciences/crop_physiol_prod/

Project description
Recent root phenotyping work with grasses performed in the RadiMax root phenotyping facility have shown very promising results with significant differences in deep root development of grass cultivars. However, root phenotyping in a facility like RadiMax is costly and the capacity is limited. Therefore, the objective of this project is to study methods for root phenotyping to be applied directly in field experiments, based on the experiences and results from RadiMax studies. Further, the study will focus on methods which can be applied aboveground, avoiding costly soil samples or direct root measurement, aiming to increase capacity and reduce cost of grass root phenotyping for breeding. 

A range of methods will be tested for their applicability as proxies for deep root development and function. The main methods to be studied will rely on stable isotopes, using both natural enrichment and active labelling approaches, but also other methods will be tested.

Principal supervisor is Professor Kristian Thorup-Kristensen, Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, ktk@plen.ku.dk, Direct Phone: 35332216.

PhD fellowship in “Super Resolution Ultrasound Imaging of the Healthy and Diseased Kidney – verification using µCT” at the Department of Biomedical Sciences

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen

Description of the scientific environment

This project integrates four research groups located at the University of Copenhagen, the University Hospital Rigshospitalet and the Technical University of Denmark. We combine traditional organ physiology with novel imaging techniques to bring new insights into the pathophysiology of diabetic kidney disease. In particular, we develop new approaches for super resolution ultrasound imaging without the use of contrast agents and apply them to study the vascular network in the healthy and the diabetic kidney in vivo. Our goal is to reveal the very early signs of developing diabetic kidney disease to improve the treatment for the many patients. The project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

Project description

Diabetes is one of the leading causes for chronic kidney disease (CKD). App. 30% of patients with diabetes develop CKD, for which we have no cure. It is unknown why these 30% develop CKD. The earliest sign of CKD is an increase in urinary excretion of protein but already at this point, there is substantial renal damage. Our goal is to visualize these early damages to enable development of new treatment strategies.

The vascular tree in the kidney serves an important role in maintaining kidney function. It is currently not possible to visualize the renal vascular tree at capillary level non-invasively in humans at bedside. Conventional ultrasound is used for imaging larger renal arteries, but diabetic kidney disease is believed to arise from vascular damage in the small arterioles and the capillaries. We have developed a novel method for super resolution ultrasound imaging. This method currently has a resolution of 50 µm, which enables us to visualize the renal vascular tree at near-capillary level. The goal is to reach capillary level.

The student will use an integrated approach – a combination of experimental in vivo and ex vivo techniques – to perform super resolution ultrasound scans on rat kidneys in healthy and diabetic animals. Subsequently, the same kidney is scanned using micro-computed tomography (µCT) to verify the findings from the ultrasound scan. The student will be guided through the surgery procedures and the steps of performing super resolution ultrasound scans in order to perform independent animal experiments. µCT scans are performed at DTU and additionally at SYRMEP beamline in Trieste, Italy. These scans will be used to extract information on the anatomical structure of the renal vascular networks. The student will analyse and interpret the data collected in collaboration with the supervisors and fellow students.

We are looking for an exceptional candidate with interdisciplinary skills: animal experimentation, novel imaging and advanced data analysis. The candidate will perform science across physiological, engineering and computational specialities.

Principal supervisor is Associate Prof. Charlotte Mehlin Sørensen: https://bmi.ku.dk/english/research/heart-renal-and-circulation/renal_hemodynamics/. Co-supervisors are Profs. Michael Bachmann Nielsen (RH) and Jørgen Arendt Jensen (DTU).

Postdoc in Characterization of P forms in soils and societal P resources (28 months)

Do you want to contribute to the development of solutions for recovery and recycling of phosphorus that are more sustainable?

We are looking for a dedicated, well-organized, communicative and highly qualified post doc, to carry out the project described below, in the Soil Fertility group at the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

The post doc project will unfold within the framework of PROCESSOR – Phosphorus recycling from complex scarcely soluble societal resources – letting the soil do the work

The project will be executed in collaboration with partners from ETH (Emmanuel Frossard and Astrid Oberson), University of Rostock (Peter Leinweber) and Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, Copenhagen University (Carsten Müller).

Background:

Recycling of societal resources of phosphorus (P) defined as sewage sludge, meat and bone meal and their corresponding ashes is an essential step towards a circular green economy. We propose that the resources can be used ‘as they are’ without further treatment, since potentially toxic element (PTE) content in sewage sludge (and its ashes) has decreased in many European countries, in some cases close to background levels, while other contaminants in sewage sludge are of low concern. Bonemeal has a very low content of PTE’s.

However, the longer-term phosphorus fertilizer value of these resources and their intricate interactions with a suite of soil characteristics is very sparsely understood. In this project, we will for the first time address this issue across a range of agronomically important European soils, using relevant complex societal resources. By doing so, we will be able to formulate a strategy for efficient use of these resources in Europe to decrease the import of phosphate, which has been identified by the EU as non-substitutable and of high economic importance.

The work of the postdoc project will be mainly centered on characterization of soils and P-containing products with solid state methodologies, supplemented with analyses of P availability with isotope exchange kinetics or ion sink assays, and complemented by routine wet chemical methods. The work on P speciation in soils and societal P resources will be carried out in close collaboration with another post doc working on long-term phosphate dynamics in soil.

Further information on the Department is linked at https://www.science.ku.dk/english/about-the-faculty/organisation/. Inquiries about the position can be made to Jakob Magid (jma@plen.ku.dk).

The position is open from 1 April 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.

Qualifications

The candidate should possess the following qualifications

  1. A Ph.D. and background as an environmental scientist or equivalent
  2. Good understanding of Phosphorus geochemistry/biogeochemistry
  3. Practical experience with solid state methodologies – e.g. XRD, XANES, SEM-EDX, 31P MAS SS NMR to characterize mineral P forms and e.g. 31P liquid state NMR to characterize organic P forms.
  4. Practical experience with wet chemical analyses of phosphorus in soils and residues
  5. Good interpersonal skills
  6. Excellence in writing and speaking English

Terms of employment

The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.

Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

The starting salary is currently up to DKK 437.435 including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 74.801). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.

The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.

Postdoc in Long Term Phosphate Reactions Dynamics of Societal P Resources in Soils (30 months)

Do you want to contribute to the development of solutions for recovery and recycling of phosphorus that are more sustainable?

We are looking for a dedicated, well-organized, communicative and highly qualified post doc, to carry out the project described below, in the Soil Fertility group at the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

The post doc project will unfold within the framework of PROCESSOR – Phosphorus recycling from complex scarcely soluble societal resources – letting the soil do the work.

The project will be executed in collaboration with partners from ETH (Emmanuel Frossard), University of Rostock (Peter Leinweber) and Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, Copenhagen University (Carsten Müller).

Background:
Recycling of societal resources of phosphorus (P) defined as sewage sludge, meat and bone meal and their corresponding ashes is an essential step towards a circular green economy. We propose that the resources can be used ‘as they are’, since potentially toxic element (PTE) content in sewage sludge (and its ashes) has decreased in many European countries, in some cases close to background levels, while other contaminants in sewage sludge are of low concern. Bonemeal has a very low content of PTE’s.

However, the longer-term phosphorus fertilizer value of these resources and their intricate interactions with a suite of soil characteristics is very sparsely understood. In this project, we will for the first time address this issue across a range of agronomically important European soils, using relevant complex societal resources. By doing so, we will be able to formulate a strategy for efficient use of these resources in Europe to decrease the import of phosphate, which has been identified by the EU as non-substitutable and of high economic importance.

The work of the postdoc project will be mainly centered on 1) assessing and disentangling biotic and abiotic effects on P turnover in incubation experiments at different temperature levels and of shorter ad longer duration using 13C and 33P tracer techniques 2) assessing plant uptake from societal P resources both from incubated soil and previously established semi-field trials. The work on P long-term P reaction dynamics in soils and societal P resources will be carried out in close collaboration with another post doc working on characterization of soils and P-containing products with solid state methodologies, supplemented with analyses of P availability with isotope exchange kinetics and ion sink assays, and complemented by routine wet chemical methods. The joint activities will comprise 3) detailed studies of substrate weathering with advanced techniques including spectromicroscopic approaches, after re-isolating substrates from soil. This collaboration will also entail 4) assessing soil – substrate interface studies looking at diffusion of P and other elements from substrate to soils.

Further information on the Department is linked at https://www.science.ku.dk/english/about-the-faculty/organisation/. Inquiries about the position can be made to Jakob Magid (jma@plen.ku.dk).

The position is open from 15-04-2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Qualification
The candidate should possess the following qualifications

  • A Ph.D. and background as an environmental scientist or equivalent
  • Good understanding of Phosphorus biogeochemistry
  • Practical experience with plant trials, and soil biological analyses
  • Practical experience with isotopic tracers preferably 32P, 33P, 15N and 13C
  • Practical experience with wet chemical analyses of phosphorus in soils and residues
  • Good interpersonal skills
  • Excellence in writing and speaking English

Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.

Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

Postdoc in Molecular Modelling for Drug Discovery

Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences
University of Copenhagen

We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic Postdoc for a 1-year position to start on the 1st of April 2022.

You will work on a very exciting project that aims to discover novel compounds that can reduce methane (CH4) emissions produced from ruminants by targeting a metalloenzyme complex that is a critical component of CH4 production by archaea microbes growing on dihydrogen and carbon dioxide (CO2). This project combines computational tools with wet-lab research to identify compounds that will affect rumen archaea and diminish their ability to produce methane. The small molecules will target different molecular processes of a central enzymatic complex required to make CO2-reduction and CH4-generation in archaea. In addition to helping mitigate methane formation, the compounds will serve as molecular tools to decipher the catalytic mechanisms of the enzymatic complex and the metabolic fluxes that occur in methanogenic archaea. This project is funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

Information on the department can be found at: https://ivh.ku.dk/english

Our research
You will work on the Section for Animal Production, Nutrition, and Health.
