Two-year Postdoc Position in Clinical Proteomics at the Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen
This is an opportunity to join the Systems Medicine Research Group at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen (SDCC).
About the Systems Medicine Research Group
We specialize in the human metabolome and lipidome to design tests for clinical decision-making and to discover novel therapies. We do this by using state-of-the-art mass spectrometry instruments and bioinformatics tools. We plan to integrate clinical proteomics workflow in the laboratory and data analysis. We lead and are partners in various consortia focusing on type 1, type 2 diabetes, and related complications.
The Systems Medicine Research Group is headed by a research leader and currently involves ten scientists.
About the Project
In diabetes, when pancreas stops producing insulin, a cascade of metabolic dysregulations in the body follow. Inability of the cells to incorporate the glucose leads to various adverse effects, including nerve damage, namely neuropathy. Joining our group, you will become a central part of research project, where we will focus on biomarkers development for prediction of distal symmetrical polyneuropathy in type 1 diabetes. Through this translational project you will be able to influence real-life diagnostics applied to patients at Steno Diabetes Center.
You will work within the Systems Medicine Research Group:
- You are expected to work in personalized medicine and contribute to dissemination of results.
- You will work with a quality mindset for creating reproducible research for the benefit of the patient.
- You will be able to supervise and manage projects.
- You will take responsibility in maintaining and developing pipelines for high-throughput mass spectrometry proteomics.
You are expected to have:
- Strong hands-on experience in mass spectrometry proteomics
- Expertise in plasma and tissue preparation for proteomics analysis
- Experience in data analysis and library development for MS-based proteomics
- Experience in high-flow liquid chromatography
- Experience in managing collaborative clinical research projects
- Have a proven record of publication of scientific results
- A PhD in a relevant scientific area
- An interest in precision medicine and translational omics
What we offer
We offer a career path that promotes taking a key role in clinical research projects. We have close interaction with clinicians for patient-related research and an international network with industry and academia for collaborative opportunities.
There will be opportunity to supervise, apply for funding, to develop managing skills and to define and lead proteomics projects.
