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.

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.
