Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in root development of forage legumes
The overall goal of the project is to increase the knowledge of root growth, development and function of red clover, white clover and lucerne. With the specific aim of contributing with knowledge on root traits as future breeding targets the post doc studies will be focused mainly on understanding the variation between cultivars in belowground traits. This will include studies on root phenotyping of selected lines in a greenhouse based study in rhizotrons. The primary root phenotyping will be performed through imaging in the rhizotrons followed by image analysis for root quantification. In addition, this will be combined with field studies following root growth by minirhizotrons and testing the use of tracers as a screening method for functional root depth. Furthermore, the effect of intercropping on root growth, development and resource uptake will be examined in the Root Tower facility of UCPH.

(16) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral positions in medical humanities
This project will explore critically the emerging literature and debates about global mental health effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and related social isolation and economic downturn. It will examine how cultural and social difference is constructed and worked into the current mental health research. The purpose of the project is twofold. Firstly, it aims to explore the emerging Covid-19 mental health literature (psychiatric, psychological and anthropological) and patients’ narratives in different cultural contexts in order to look beyond the discourses of universality that dominate current research, and to see how different societies have experienced the pandemic/lockdown psychologically, and what is highlighted and diagnosed (or self-diagnosed) as the core problem in different socio-cultural settings. Secondly, it will analyse critically the methodology and research instruments used in the existing mental health studies as well as the assumed universality of their diagnostic concepts. The project rests on the idea that psychiatric treatment results and health outcomes would have more impact if the medical perspective in psychiatry is complemented by a scholarly consideration of local, social, cultural and political-economic factors, which shape the lived experience of and social/communal responses to mental illness.
Deadline : 9 January 2022,
(17) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: 211-0955/21-2I Postdoctoral fellowship – extracellular triggers of bacterial CRISPR-Cas immunity
We are looking to hire a postdoctoral fellow to study one of these aspects, namely how bacterial CRISPR-Cas immunity is regulated and controlled in response to environmental signals and extracellular factors, and how this may affect phage infection and transduction. The postdoc will primarily use a combination of molecular and single cell methods including genetic engineering and generation of fluorescence-based bio-reporters, FACS, CLSM, and transcriptomics. In addition to genetic engineering of bacteria and phages, experimental work in the laboratory will primarily be based on bacterium-phage infection models.

(18) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Neurobiology
A 2-year postdoc position is open in the group of Assoc. Prof. Anders Garm at the Marine Biological Section. The postdoc will be part of a Villum Foundation financed project on the neurobiology of the box jellyfish Tripedalia cystophora. Box jellyfish stand out from other cnidarians in having an elaborate visual system including image-forming eyes. They perform a number of visually guided behaviours and the visual processing takes place in a specialized part of their central nervous system, the rhopalial nervous system (RNS). Recently we have shown that visually guided learning also takes place in the RNS and the project seeks to investigate this further. Aims are to pinpoint the neuronal circuitry behind learning and to characterize the neuronal changes during learning processes on a cellular level.

About The University of Copenhagen, Denmark – Official Website
The University of Copenhagen is a public research university in Copenhagen, Denmark. Founded in 1479, the University of Copenhagen is the second-oldest university in Scandinavia, and ranks as one of the top universities in the Nordic countries and Europe.
Its establishment sanctioned by Pope Sixtus IV, the University of Copenhagen was founded by Christian I of Denmark as a Catholic teaching institution with a predominantly theological focus. In 1537, it was re-established by King Christian III as part of the Lutheran Reformation. Up until the 18th century, the university was primarily concerned with educating clergymen. Through various reforms in the 18th and 19th century, the University of Copenhagen was transformed into a modern, secular university, with science and the humanities replacing theology as the main subjects studied and taught.
The University of Copenhagen consists of six different faculties, with teaching taking place in its four distinct campuses, all situated in Copenhagen. The university operates 36 different departments and 122 separate research centres in Copenhagen, as well as a number of museums and botanical gardens in and outside the Danish capital. The University of Copenhagen also owns and operates multiple research stations around Denmark, with two additional ones located in Greenland. Additionally, The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the public hospitals of the Capital and Zealand Region of Denmark constitute the conglomerate Copenhagen University Hospital.
A number of prominent scientific theories and schools of thought are namesakes of the University of Copenhagen. The famous Copenhagen Interpretation of quantum mechanics was conceived at the Niels Bohr Institute, which is part of the university. The Department of Political Science birthed the Copenhagen School of Security Studies, which is also named after the university. Others include the Copenhagen School of Theology and the Copenhagen School of Linguistics.
