The basic idea of the ERC Consolidator Grant is to use established methods and models of mortality research and apply those to capture and model fertility patterns, systematically establishing shared regularities between birth and death patterns. The emerging framework is envisioned as a common language and tool to allow bridging disciplines and understand principle causes and consequences of age-trajectories of birth and death.
 
The Centre is one of the leading teams in the world for demographic mortality modelling and forecasting. One of the prime directions of the Centre’s research is ageing in modern societies and its diverse implications. We study patterns of changing mortality and morbidity, mostly in human populations but also in non-human species. We maintain a strong and unique profile in analytical demography and are expanding to also include more application-oriented research like pension schemes or covid-19 demography.

The Centre is part of the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences and collaborates with researchers in economics and political science, as well as researchers in other fields including evolutionary ecology, conservation biology, mathematics and data analysis in the Faculty of Natural Sciences, epidemiology, biostatistics, biodemography and health economics in the Faculty of Health Sciences, and literature and media science in the Faculty of Humanities. Across the disciplines, the Centre is now expanding towards fertility research. 

Job description

Postdoc Position in Federated Multi-OMICS Machine Learning

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark for the Computational Biology laboratory chaired by Associate Professor Richard Röttger invites applications for a postdoctoral position within the field of federated machine learning and AI to be filled by 1 July 2022, or soon thereafter, for a period of 18 months. Application deadline: 16 May 2022.

The research is part of a large European effort, FeatureCloud, to establish privacy-aware federated machine learning approaches to enable the mining of distributed, sensitive data. Currently, one major roadblock of biomedical research is that the valuable data is scattered around the globe and sharing and consolidating data is simply not possible due to privacy concerns. With FeatureCloud, we are seeking to elevate this prohibitive problem by allowing federated machine learning, i.e. we leave the data in the safe harbour of storage and train local models at the sites; thereafter only the model parameters are consolidated in a central instance to create a model of similar capabilities as a conventional model trained on all the available data. 

The successful candidate will develop novel approaches for federated machine learning of systems medicine and multi-OMICS data in particular. The candidate will be embedded in a highly international and powerful consortium as a member of the Computational Biology group which offers a wide expertise in machine learning on biomedical data, both in the realm of unsupervised and supervised learning. We also provide the candidate with direct access to state-of-the-art computing facilities optimized for deep learning and distributed computing. 

We are seeking outstanding candidates with strong analytical and problem-solving skills, who are strong in written and oral communication (in English), and have documented experience in data science, machine learning and software development of complex systems. Expertise in the analysis of biological data is an advantage, but not a requirement. Expertise in computer security and data privacy are welcome, but not required.

Place of work:
Computational Biology Group (Associate Professor Richard Röttger, roettger@imada.sdu.dk), Department of Mathematics and Computer Science located at the main campus of the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

Application, salary etc.
The successful applicant will be employed in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Please check links for more information on salary and taxation.

Application must be made in the form of a Declaration of Interest and must include the following documents:

        Postdoc position – Pastors in trials for witchcraft in the Danish Reamls, 1559-1660

        Godly Power and Witchcraft 
        The ideal of the godly state developed during the 16th century. A part of being a godly Christian ruler included eradicating sin and all false Christians. Witches were the epitome of false Christians. This project will explore to what extent witch prosecutions were included in the efforts of establishing a godly Danish monarchy during 1559-1660. The Danish State with its realms were ruled by the Oldenburg monarchs. It encompassed the kingdoms of Denmark and Norway (including territories in present day Sweden), present day Iceland, and the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein. These realms had separate jurisdictions and varying degrees of self-determination, but state authorities could issue strict laws against witchcraft. Common to these realms, lay rulers oversaw witch prosecutions. Based on four intertwined subprojects, the overall aim of the project is to clarify the responsibilities of the king, the Council, the king’s lieutenants, and the parish priests, and how these groups engaged in trials for witchcraft. 

        The post doc position concerns Lutheran pastors and their role in trials for witchcraft. Pastors were royal officials and thus servants of the state as well as of the church. In fact, outside of Copenhagen and the garrison towns they were by far the most prevalent royal officials and the group most evenly spread out over the various parts of the sprawling Oldenburg monarchy’s domains. Furthermore, bishops, deans and pastors formed a parallel hierarchy of royal officials beside that of the king’s lieutenants who they were not subordinated to. How did pastors navigate in this intersection of secular and religious power when godly power was the official ideology? To what extent did they comply with the law on witchcraft? Is it possible to detect any general patterns focusing on specific realms? Did certain pastors stand out? How about those that had a particular educational background? Did they also involve themselves in other “moral crimes” in the secular courts, i.e. sexual offences and so on?

        Expected output: short monograph (e.g. Palgrave pivot) and 1 article in a leading journal.

        The post doc position is a sub-project in the project Godly Power and Witchcraft in the Danish Realms (1559-1660), funded by the Velux Foundation and the Independent Research Fund Denmark. The project is partnering with Bergen University and HEX! Museum of Wich-Hunt (Museum of Southwest Jutland). The successful applicant will join the project group led by PI Louise Nyholm Kallestrup.

        For more information about the project and the position, please contact PI Louise Nyholm Kallestrup (LNK@sdu.dk) or visit our website https://www.sdu.dk/en/om_sdu/institutter_centre/ih/forskning/forskningsprojekter/godwit

        Postdoctoral Fellowship in Single Cell and Synthetic Biology

        The Schmidt group at the Functional Genomics & Metabolism Research Unit, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark, invites applications from outstanding candidates who are interested in joining our group as a postdoctoral fellow. The position is available from 1 August 2022, or as soon as possible thereafter. Application deadline: 1 June 2022.

        Research project
        Research in the Schmidt group focuses on  transcriptional coordination of macrophage diversity and plasticity in metabolic health and disease. For this, we combine single cell analyses of clinical samples and viral targeting strategies in animal models. In a project recently funded by the Lundbeck Foundation, we will develop a new method for generation of cell type specific viral drivers.

        The recent explosion in single cell sequencing technologies has unravelled a remarkable heterogeneity and plasticity of cell types within and across organs throughout the body, however, tools to specifically target specific cell types and states to explore their importance for development, physiology, and homeostasis are lacking. In this project, you will help bridge this gap by developing and testing different computational and experimental strategies for learning the cis regulatory code of specific cell types in vivo. This knowledge will be transformed into a method for rapid development of synthetic viral drivers and single cell assessment of their cell type specificity.

        We expect the project to outline a general strategy for rapid development of tools to study rare cell types in their in vivo context. This may involve loss of function studies by delivery of RNAi or CRISPR systems for single gene studies or for pooled single cell screens or lineage tracing by delivery of fluorescence markers. The project thereby also has the potential to improve specificity of gene therapies in the future.

        Research environment
        The project will benefit from the highly interdisciplinary expertise in the ATLAS Center of Excellence headed by Professor Susanne Mandrup, and in the Functional Genomics & Metabolism Research Unit (FGM), at Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. FGM currently hosts eight independent research groups focusing on various aspects of gene regulatory mechanisms controlling cellular identity, differentiation, and metabolism. The research unit constitutes an international, ambitious, highly dynamic, and well-equipped working environment. The unit and the department have state-of-the-art facilities for next generation sequencing, single-cell transcriptomics, flow cytometry, mass spectrometry, metabolomics, bioimaging and transgenic mouse work. Strategic research alliances exist with Odense University Hospital (OUH).

        Postdoc qualifications/requirements
        We are looking for a highly motivated, dedicated, and ambitious candidate with:

        • A PhD degree in Life Science, preferably Molecular Biology, Biomedicine, or Computational Biology.
        • Experience with cell biology or NGS data analysis. Experience with cloning, virus production, animal work, and/or transcriptional regulation is considered an advantage.
        • Documented experience leading a research project.
        • Strong communication and collaborative skills and a desire to work in an interdisciplinary environment.
        • Proficiency in spoken and written English.

        We offer:

        • A two-year postdoc position in a stimulating and supportive, international research environment.
        • Training in a wide range of skills including leadership, research management, communication, networking, presentations, writing of grants and manuscripts etc..
        • Mentoring and career development.
        • Access to state-of-the-art equipment, facilities, and infrastructure.
        • Opportunity to interact with an extensive network of national and international collaborators.
        • A competitive salary and social benefits (e.g. health coverage, parental leave, social security etc.).
        • Dedicated assistance and support with various practical, social, and legal aspects (housing, visa, administration, tax etc.), especially for international candidates through our international staff office (ISO) and department.

        For further information please contact Assistant Professor Søren Fisker Schmidt (sfs@bmb.sdu.dk).

        Application, salary etc.
        The successful applicant will be employed in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations). Please check links for more information on salary and taxation.

        The application must include the following:
