Post.doc position for project on Comorbidity and health determinants in dementia

Danish Dementia Research Centre (DDRC)
(Nationalt Videnscenter for Demens) Rigshospitalet

A 3-year position is available for a highly motivated international or Danish candidate to join our group at the Danish Dementia Research Centre (Nationalt Videnscenter for Demens), from October 1, 2020, or as soon as possible. The candidate will be employed as a post. doc. researcher with the aim to plan for independent research in the field of comorbidity and health determinants in dementia.

The Danish Dementia Research Centre
The Danish Dementia Research Centre (DDRC) at the Department of Neurology, Rigshospitalet, is dedicated to patient care, research and national educational services in the field of dementia. In the clinical and epidemiology research group we focus on initiatives to improve the quality of health care for people with dementia.

Project overview
The overall aim of the research project is to investigate comorbidities and determinants of health in patients with dementia including disease risk and socio-economic factors. The project is entirely based on Danish national registry data. The candidate will be expected to prepare a research program within this field.

PhD student in Cancer Cell Biology

PhD student in Cancer Cell Biology

The Laboratory of Pediatric Oncology, Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen

The Pediatric Cancer Research Laboratory, Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen is recruiting a PhD student with an interest in pediatric malignancies, their biology and propensity for dissemination in the central nervous system. The PhD position is available from October 1st or soon after. The laboratory staff of 100+ full- or part-time employees is organized in eight research groups (cancer etiology, tumor biology, pharmacology, phase 1 & 2 trials, host genome variants and treatment responses, acute lymphoblastic leukemia therapy, brain tumors, late effects and rehabilitation). The laboratory coordinates several childhood cancer research projects across Europe.

The research project
We are recruiting a PhD student with an MD degree or a master in biochemistry, molecular biomedicine, human biology or a closely related field to work on a research project concerning central nervous system (CNS) malignancy using leukemia as a prototype. CNS involvement is a negative prognostic factor in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), but the biological processes leading to leukemic cell infiltration and relapse in the CNS need further exploration. The project will focus on identifying biological factors that can mediate survival of leukemic cells and other childhood malignancies in the CNS. The long-term goal of the project is to identify biomarkers that predict disease dissemination and relapse risk and can be applied for stratifying treatment. The project will involve proteomic profiling of cerebrospinal fluid from ALL and other cancer patients by high-resolution quantitative mass spectrometry to identify candidate biomarkers. Proteomic profiling will be performed in collaboration with Jesper Olsen’s research group at Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research, University of Copenhagen. The functional significance of identified biomarkers will be studied in relevant in vitro models, including primary human cells and 3-dimensional CNS models.

Prioritized qualifications:

  • Documented and published research experience
  • Experience with R-programming, proteome data analysis and/or bioinformatics
  • Hands-on experience in planning and conducting lab research
  • Experience with mammalian cell culture
  • Experience with mass spectrometry-based proteome analysis or a strong motivation to learn this skill
  • Excellent communication and writing skills in English and previous experience with scientific publication
  • High degree of self-motivation and ability to work independently
  • An interest in cancer cell biology
  • Ability to interact scientifically and socially with other laboratory members and collaborators

We offer
We offer an interesting job within the area of pediatric oncology. Our department is science based and collaborates closely with clinicians and external researchers. We are passionate about our work and perform high impact research. We offer a positive and engaged working climate in a global environment and flexible working conditions.

Salary: According to Danish regulation reflecting the applicant’s education and experience.

Application procedure: Please submit your online application no later than August 9 2020. Attach your motivated application, CV, publication list and exam certificates.
