PhD Position in Drones

The Department of Biology at the University of Southern Denmark invites applications for a PhD scholarship within the field of bat echolocation. The position is available from 1 February 2019 or soon thereafter. Application deadline: 27 December 2018.

Bats are agile fliers and some species reportedly fly up to and above 1000 meters altitude, yet our in-depth knowledge of bat echolocation in the field is restricted to within 30 meters of the ground where measurement equipment can be conveniently deployed. We thus have limited to no knowledge of how bats operate their sonar in > 95% of the vertical space they utilize. The project will employ a newly developed acoustic drone platform to investigate bat echolocation in these unexplored habitats.

The chosen candidate will utilize and further develop our acoustic drone platform to study how bats operate their sonar in previously inaccessible habitats, exploiting the flexibility of such a system to go where the animals are instead of bringing the animals to us. The project involves extensive cross-faculty and international collaborations and substantial technical development. The project is funded by the independent research fund Denmark.

Candidates to the position should have documented experience within acoustics, digital signal processing and software programming. In addition, candidates with prior experience in sensory biology and bioacoustics will be favoured. The person should have a good level of written and spoken English.

For further information please contact Associate Professor Lasse Jakobsen, tel.: +45 6550 7975, e-mail: lasse@biology.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.

Postdoc in prevention of chronic lifestyle related diseases

A postdoc position is available from April 1, 2019 or soon thereafter at the Research Unit for General Practice, Department of Public Health, University of Southern Denmark.

The postdoc will be attached to two public health research projects: “The early detection and prevention project (Tidlig opsporing og forebyggelse; TOF)” and the WellCo project. In addition, the successful applicant will be expected to develop independent lines of research within the overarching topic of prevention of chronic lifestyle-related disease.

The TOF project is a large-scale prevention/health promotion project that has been developed in collaboration with the Region of Southern Denmark, the Danish Organization of General Practitioners, ten municipalities in the Region of Southern Denmark, and the Research Unit for General Practice at the University of Southern Denmark. The main goal of the TOF project is to identify those segments of the general population that are at elevated risk of lifestyle-related disease and/or follow an unhealthy lifestyle, and offer these people targeted preventative intervention at their GP and/or at a municipal health center. The intervention has been designed in close collaboration with end users, and includes a personalized homepage where participants receive tailored information, advice, and guidance about health risks, lifestyle change, as well as relevant and local lifestyle initiatives. With participant consent, health professionals can also access information about patient lifestyle, planned lifestyle changes, referral options, etc., through the homepage. The intervention was piloted in 2016-2017 in two municipalities comprising 8814 residents and 47 general practitioners. The results indicated that the intervention was feasible and relevant, but also that various adjustments were required – particularly as related to participant recruitment and the general practice intervention component. Another pilot study testing the adjusted intervention was implemented in October 2018 and will run through July 2019. For more information about the TOF project, please refer to the project website: www.projekttof.dk

The WellCo project is a pan-European research and development project funded by Horizon 2020 (Grant no 769765) (H2020-SC1-2016-2017-Personalised Medicine). Project stakeholders include universities as well as medium-sized businesses in Spain, Italy, Slovenia, the Netherlands, and Denmark. WellCo focuses on the development of innovative technological information and communication solutions, designed to provide tailored health advice, guidance, and follow-up options to users who wish to modify their current lifestyle. The technology will facilitate health-related behavior change that will maintain or improve users’ physical, cognitive, mental, and social wellbeing. For more information about the WellCo project, please refer to the project website: http://wellco-project.eu/.

The position is a full-time, fixed-term (April 1, 2019 – March 31, 2021) position, 37 hours per week. The successful applicant will work from the Research Unit for General Practice’s offices in Odense.

Main responsibilities:

The postdoc will be expected to:

– Contribute actively to the empirical evaluation of the TOF project.
– Contribute to project tasks on TOF and WellCo as they arise.
– Contribute to publication of project results in peer-reviewed journals.
– Develop independent lines of research within the overarching topic of prevention of lifestyle-related disease.
– Raise funds for research activities on TOF and other relevant research projects.
– Teach in the undergraduate health sciences curriculum.

 

Required qualifications:

The postdoc will be expected to have:

– A PhD in a relevant field, e.g. health psychology, medicine, or public health.
– Knowledge of research in general practice and the municipal health care system.
– Experience or interest in intervention research.
– Experience in project management.

PhD Fellowship in Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics and Cell Signalling

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark invites applications for a PhD scholarship within the field of mass spectrometry-based proteomics for studying cellular signalling. The position is available from 1 January 2019 or soon thereafter. Application deadline: 13 December 2018.

Posttranslational modifications (PTMs) on proteins are known to act as molecular switches in signalling networks controlling virtually every cellular process and their imbalances often lead to diseases like diabetes and cancer. To understand their impact, it is essential to know which are the proteins targeted by a given PTM and the sites modified. The project involves generating and applying techniques for selective capturing of three PTMs, each characterized by the attachment of a unique, small protein – Ubiquitin, NEDD8 and ISG15, respectively. Currently, there are no tools available that can distinguish these PTMs.

The chosen candidate will develop and combine the selective enrichments techniques with quantitative proteomics to define the in-depth cellular footprints of each of these PTMs at site-specific level. The aim will be to unveil the cellular processes uniquely controlled by these, to provide a foundation for better understanding of the functional roles of these elusive PTMs. The position is funded by Independent Research Fund Denmark.

We are seeking extremely motivated, organized, and skilful scientists. Candidates for the position should have documented experience in mass spectrometry-based proteomics and eukaryotic cell signalling research. In addition, prior experience with cell and molecular biology techniques, and familiarity with computational data analysis will be greatly valued. The person should have a good level of written and spoken English.

The research group is located at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense and offers an international, collaborative, and interdisciplinary working environment in the area of molecular and cellular biology. The selected applicant will have access to a unique collection of state-of-the art mass spectrometers and complementary technologies for cell and molecular biology research.
