This is an opportunity to join the Translational Medicine Team at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen (SDCC).
About the Translational Medicine Research Group
We specialize in the human metabolome, lipidome and proteome 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 clinics. We lead and are partners in various consortia focusing on type 1, type 2 diabetes, and related complications.
The Translational Medicine Research Team currently involves ten scientists.
About the Project
In diabetes, when pancreas stops producing insulin, a cascade of metabolic dysregulations in the body follows. Inability of the cells to incorporate the glucose leads to various adverse effects, including nerve damage, retinopathy, and cognitive functions. Joining our group, you will become a central part of research projects, where we will focus on biomarkers development for prediction of diabetes complications. Through your work you will be able to influence real-life diagnostics applied to patients at Steno Diabetes Center.
You will work within the Translational Medicine Research Team:
- 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 omics approaches.
We are looking for a candidate with:
- Strong hands-on experience in mass spectrometry proteomics
- Expertise in samples preparation for metabolomics and/or proteomics and/or lipidomics analysis
- Experience in data analysis and library development for MS-based omics
- A strong interest in mass spectrometry machines methods development and troubleshooting
- A PhD in a relevant scientific area
- An interest in managing collaborative research projects
- 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 mass spectrometry-based projects.
Recruitment and employment
As part of the recruitment procedure the candidate’s qualifications will be assessed by an academic assessment committee. The employment is in accordance with the Capital Regions collective agreements and initial contract will be for two years with a possibility of extension and promotion, depending on the applicant’s experience.
