(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in medical humanities: Cross-cultural research in ‘psy’ disciplines (CULTMIND)

The Centre proposes that the issue of culture-mind relationship lays at the core of many social, political, and medical debates: within cross-cultural psychiatry/psychotherapy, in trauma studies, and in migration and refugee studies. It explores how the human mind and common humanity have been imagined in different cultural, sociopolitical, and disciplinary contexts, examining the assumptions and forces which shaped such definitions. By analysing how different cross-cultural models of the psyche were formulated and critiqued, the Centre’s interdisciplinary team aims to develop a new framework for understanding cross-cultural interventions, which pushes beyond the binary of universalism and cultural relativism in order to arrive at a more nuanced model of interaction between socio-cultural contexts and ideas of the psyche.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Two postdocs in the research project “Iran Beyond Iran: Diasporic Politics, Transnational Entanglement and Digital Publics”

The project focuses on Iranian diaspora politics in Western Europe by investigating the specific entanglements of the diaspora with homeland, host country and geopolitics. Mapping diasporic entrepreneurs as they relate to each other, to Persian-language digital publics and to the influence of transnational authoritarianism, the project will generate crucial new knowledge of a conflict that increasingly materializes on European soil and therefore is of interest to the broader public, policymakers and societal stakeholders. The project also aspires to contribute an important transnational dimension to Iranian Studies, which – as an Area Study – has traditionally focused mainly on domestic politics. The project thus raises questions such as: How is Iranian politics transnationalized through diasporic entrepreneurs’ activities? And what can the case of Iranian diasporic politics tell us generally about conflict over authoritarian states in a globalized, digitized and media-saturated world?

(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: 2-year postdoc fellowship in the group of Cardiac Functional Genomics

Atrial function has been underappreciated in its role in the proper function of ventricles.
We have previously shown that mutations in genes associated with dilated cardiomyopathy are also associated with atrial fibrillation and atrial cardiomyopathy (Ahlberg et al. Nature Comms. 2018, Collins et al, PNAS 2019, Vad et al, JACC: Basic to Transnational Science, 2023).

Thus, we have a keen interest in the development and function of the atrium in health and disease.  We are particularly interested in studying how mutations in cytoskeletal genes of the cardiomyocyte influence the development and the function of the atrium, and how atrial dysfunction affects the structure and the function of the ventricle. The postdoc recruited for this project will work on existing mutants available in the lab, as well as generate new mutant and transgenic zebrafish models.

(11) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in molecular pharmacology of G protein-coupled receptors at the Department of Biomedical Sciences

Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) are

released from the intestine in response to food intake and contribute to the release on insulin by

activating GLP-1 and GIP receptors (GLP-1R and GIPR). Both receptors belong to class B1 of the large GPCR family, which includes the targets of around 30% of approved drugs with development of new and improved GPCR-acting therapies a major focus of academic groups and companies worldwide. Recent findings have identified novel regulatory proteins, which affect the function of GPCRs across different receptor classes including B1. The project aims to determine the molecular basis and functional outcomes of this regulation on GLP-1R and GIPR through characterization of receptor structure and function (ligand binding, signalling etc.) in cell-based and reconstituted systems.

(12) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Geophysics

We are looking for a Postdoc in Geophysics with experience in the research of complex systems and/or non-linear dynamics and tipping points in the climate system. The Postdoc will perform a unique combination of laboratory experiment and modeling to challenge our understanding of tipping points in complex natural systems.

It is currently debated whether we can predict with confidence that abrupt and irreversible climate tipping points are approached. Important recent studies claim to do so, but hinge on key theoretical assumptions that allow for the identification of so-called early-warning signals. These assumptions could so far not be verified in the real world or climate models.

It is the aim of this project to do so with a lab experiment representing the much-feared tipping point of a collapse of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation. The Postdoc will perform lab experiments with a model of the thermohaline circulation where the stability and variability of co-existing circulation states is measured as freshwater and temperature gradients of the model basins are varied, as well as for changing heterogeneity in forcing and geometry. The experiments are guided by simulations with ocean and dynamical systems models.

(13) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc i forskningsprojektet ”Passion eller politik?

Carl Jacobsen (1842-1914) stiftede Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek i København i 1897. Projektet har til formål at forske i de socioøkonomiske og kulturpolitiske aspekter, der motiverede bryggeren til at skabe en samling af tidens danske og franske skulptur, herunder en undersøgelse af dens mere ideologiske potentiale. Projektet skal bidrage til kortlægningen af kunstmæcenater og private museumsdannelser omkring 1900.

For at forstå, hvordan Jacobsens danske og franske samling både afspejlede og udfordrede periodens kulturpolitik, lægges der vægt på at besvare følgende spørgsmål: Hvilken samlervirksomhed karakteriserede det voksende industrimæcenat, som Jacobsen var del af, nationalt og internationalt? Og på hvilke måder var interessefelterne kunst, politik og identitet vævet sammen?

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.
