Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position in circadian biology and bioinformatics
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by altered whole-body and tissue-specific metabolism, hyperglycemia, hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance of peripheral tissues. One risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes is the disruption of circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms are driven by biological clocks that are synchronized by environmental stimuli such as light, diet and exercise. The research performed within this postdoctoral position will elucidate mechanisms by which physiological and epigenetic processes are modulated by the circadian clock machinery in a diurnal manner, and how synchronizing the timing of therapeutic interventions (e.g. diet and exercise) to the molecular circadian clock can optimize the treatment of type 2 diabetes. We are seeking a highly motivated researcher who will analyze and integrate a range of omics data (transcriptomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics) with comprehensive metabolic phenotyping from a range of clinical and preclinical models (e.g. cell, rodent, and human) to identify important targets in the regulation of circadian rhythms and metabolic health.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in DNA structure and gene expression in the human genomein the Møllegaard/Svejstrup laboratories at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM)
It is well established that 2nd and 3rd order DNA sequence effects, giving rise to e.g. triplex H-DNA and G-quadruplex DNA as well as R-loop structures can have significant impact on genome structure and function, not least in terms of transcriptional regulation. Using a unique technique for probing DNA structure/electrostatic potential at high resolution (Lindemose et al, NAR, 2011, Vol. 39, No. 14 6269–6276) we recently identified a new structural motif in a transcriptional control element, and the project will characterize and study the generality, genome distribution and function of this DNA element in cells. Supplementary analysis of some of these sequence elements will include electrophoretic mobility shift assays and subsequent proteomic analysis in order to identify potential proteins that bind to the DNA elements. In addition, dynamical DNA structural changes in the genome will be studied, using DNA targeting with peptide nucleic acids (PNA).

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral fellowship in Genomics and Precision Medicine at Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research
Obesity and diabetes are complex metabolic diseases with substantial etiological heterogeneity. Recent studies have described subtypes of these diseases based on variable clinical presentation or genetic differences. A better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying these subtypes of obesity and diabetes is needed for the eventual implementation of precision medicine for metabolic diseases. The successful candidate will analyze high throughput omics data (genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, metagenomics) from large biobanks and population cohorts to elucidate 1) molecular signatures underlying obesity and diabetes subtypes, 2) investigate how these features are related to variable disease progression and the propensity to develop clinical complications, and 3) determine whether targeted therapeutic strategies are more likely to work into specific disease subtypes.
Deadline : 4 December 2022
(14) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in Ecosystem-Atmosphere Exchange of VOCs
Plants defend themselves against insect herbivory by releasing climate-relevant volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to the atmosphere. Herbivore damage alters VOC emission blends and increases the emission rates from the affected ecosystem to the atmosphere. The total effect of herbivory on VOC fluxes is likely to be considerable, at least periodically, but still this is not accounted for in the current models. The aim of this project is to assess effects of insect herbivory on VOC emissions in the rapidly warming high latitude regions, where herbivory pressure is increasing with climate change. We will quantify ecosystem-scale, branch, stem and forest floor VOC emissions of a Subarctic mountain birch forest during several growing seasons, while monitoring insect herbivory intensity and the environmental conditions. We will also use modeling approaches to assess the importance of herbivory for regional VOC emissions as well as their impacts on atmospheric chemistry under different climate scenarios. This will improve our understanding of the plant-stress-related climate feedbacks.

The postdoctoral position is opened in the framework of the international, collective research project Waste: Consumption and Buddhism in the age of garbage, which is funded by the VELUX FONDEN (September 2021 – August 2025). The postdoc will join a research team of five scholars working within the project Waste under the leadership of the PI, Associate Professor Trine Brox. This project will generate new understandings of how Buddhist communities and individuals generate and interpret waste, and how waste practices are intimately related to cultural imaginaries. In particular, the project is interested in Buddhist consumption practices, waste regimes, value, affect, and aesthetics as they are connected to the waste imaginaries and waste trajectories that we study. The project asks: how do Buddhists define and sort waste from non-waste? What are the effects of increased consumption practices and waste production on ecological systems, cultural practices, social relations, rituals, and customs? The postdoc and the other team members will collectively and through their individual ethnographic studies respond to these research questions.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc/Assistant Professor in Epidemiology and Economics applied to Animal Health at Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences
The successful candidate will develop quantitative risk assessment and mathematical models as tools to quantify the probability of introduction and within-farm spread of pathogens. These models will be used to estimate the impact of biosecurity measures on pathogen transmission, to prioritise which biosecurity measures should be implemented and/or to reduce the probability of introduction and spread of pathogens at farm level. Within the epidemiological models the cost-effectiveness of implementing critical biosecurity measures will be assessed for both endemic and epidemic/emerging infectious diseases relevant for intensive and extensive production systems. This requires development of computational models to quantify the relative importance of different transmission routes, allowing a deeper understanding of the impact of biosecurity practices on the introduction and spread of pathogens in the herds, and to demonstrate the value of improved biosecurity by quantifying the cost of biosecurity measures and their relationship to the effectiveness or monetary savings for the private industry.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in Landscape archaeology AD 600-1050
The successful postdoctoral candidate will focus on to what extent the landscape was used to provide the raw materials for clothing, sails and furnishing textiles in the Viking Age. While also contributing to the overall research aims of Textiles Resources in Viking Age landscape. The Viking Age was a period of transition and change, characterized by overseas trade, warfare, and colonization, where the socio-political development supported the formation of centralized kingdoms within the Scandinavian homelands. The Viking Age is a period in which textile production gets a deeper impact on society, clearly indicating a new consumption of sails that supported long-distance travels as well as a new fascination and use of luxury clothing. The introduction of the sail in the 7th century was without a doubt one of the most important and innovative technological developments of the period and allowed the Scandinavian communities to travel long distances over the open sea, in order to engage more efficiently in trade and raiding and to explore new lands. The project hypothesis is that the use of sailcloth and changes in textile production demanded physical labour as well as a large supply of raw material, which would result in an increase in land use for sheep grazing and large-scale cultivation of textile crops as well as changes in settlement structures.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Position in Textile Archaeology and Sudanese Medieval History (c. 450 – 1500 CE)
The successful postdoctoral candidate will focus on the textile material of the medieval period, while contributing to the overall research aims of Fashioning Sudan. Textile research in Sudan has predominantly focused on the cataloguing of existing collections, excavated in the beginning of the 20th century and often without clear contextual information. Efforts have been mostly dedicated to establishing technical benchmarks, especially for weaving techniques. In contrast, the postdoctoral candidate will engage on a thoroughly archaeological study, combining the identification of raw material, the documentation of the textile chaîne opératoire, and – more importantly – the interpretation of the different uses of textiles during the life of the owner and within the graves. Together with the project’s team, the postdoctoral candidate will empirically and theoretically analyse the different types of garments and corresponding dress practices.

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.
