PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Physics of Life

The project is focused on the viruses infecting bacteria (bacteiophages): they are the drivers of microbial ecology, gene transfer and microbial evolution, and also an ideal in-vivo model system to study the interplay between a virus and its host. We aim to explore the virus development upon infection as a dynamic and stochastic process exhibiting decisions. We are also actively studying the role of phages at the population scale and ecology scale and as pattern formation, to the macroscopic scale of epidemics as it spread in a 2 or 3-dimensional geometry. We have a strong connection between experimental and theoretical research: We develop mathematical and computational models to mimic, suggest and perform experiments on these fascinating systems.

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Particle Astrophysics

This project aims at solving one of the most urgent riddles in particle astrophysics: how neutrinos affect the physics of the death of massive stars as core-collapse supernova explosions and the merger of two neutron stars or a neutron star and a black hole. Neutrinos are feebly interacting particles copiously produced in these dense sources. Neutrinos exist in three different kinds, or flavors, and have the fascinating property of changing their flavor while propagating (flavor conversion). Because of the high density of neutrinos in the core of supernovae or compact binary mergers, flavor conversion becomes a non-linear phenomenon, whose understanding is quite preliminary. Numerical simulations buttressed by analytic diagnostic methods will be employed to radically advance our understanding within a multi-messenger framework. This project will have implications on fundamental physics, the origin of the heavy elements, as well as our comprehension of  the behavior of matter at extreme densities and the physics of  neutrino-dense sources.

PhD position summary/title: 3 PhD fellowships at the Pioneer Centre for Artificial Intelligence

XR: Human–Computer Interaction with Virtual Reality
The PhD fellow will work on human–computer interaction with virtual reality. The position is part of a project that investigates movement learning in VR. The project aims to theorise how sensory feedback (e.g., visual or haptic) influences moving in VR (e.g., redirection), and to optimise motor learning through designing how user interfaces for VR provide feedback. Therefore, knowledge and interest in human–computer interaction research is essential, but as a PhD student you have much freedom to detail your focus: to a large extent, you shape the research you work on and the ideas you pursue. We seek a candidate who is passionate about human-computer interaction research and experienced in one or more of the following: empirical studies of human–computer interaction, motor learning, or perception; or designing or developing software or hardware prototypes of interaction techniques or user interfaces. You should demonstrate a keen interest in virtual reality, movement sciences, cognitive sciences, multimodal interacation, or other topics related to the project.

SL: Externalist XAI
Externalism is the mainstream position in natural language semantics, but large language models and related technologies are commonly analyzed using internalist techniques.This PhD will aim to extend current XAI taxonomies to include externalist approaches, discuss how they relate to functionalist accounts, and – through a combination of theoretical and empirical analysis – investigate the pros and cons of externalist accounts. Research questions include: Are functional approaches to XAI generalizations of externalist approaches, and what criteria would be further satisfied by externalist accounts? Is there a continuum from functional approaches to internalist approaches? Can externalist accounts provide knowledge or understanding that internalism cannot account for? Finally, does the analysis of AI systems shed new light on human communication, e.g., by deanthropomorphizing current accounts?

PhD position summary/title: PhD Scholarship (3 years, full time) in Social Data Science

This PhD position is part of the “Bias Explained: Pushing Algorithmic Fairness”, funded by the Villum Foundation. Every day our life is made easier by efficient algorithms that search and rank scientific information. Yet, these algorithms have an issue: they are trained on citation data that is ingrained with human biases. Therefore, the output is inherently biased too, creating inequalities and raising concerns of discrimination. This project aims to push new frontiers in (algorithmic) fairness. We will (1) run experiments to measure bias, (2) develop new models to understand inequality, (3) improve the fairness of algorithms through de-biased impact measures.

PhD position summary/title: Three PhD fellowships in Chemical Biology at the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology

PhD project 1Development of peptide-based probes to modulated biomolecular condensates at PSD
In this project, the fellow will examine all PPIs of the PSD and delineate their peptide binding epitopes. The identified binding epitopes will be further optimized and (peptide therapeutic maturation) evaluated in in vitro biochemical and LLPS assays. Multiple rounds of affinity maturation will yield peptides either disrupting or stabilizing the relevant PPIs and restoring a physiological PSD. Ultimately, this will provide a better understanding how to restore the healthy state of PSD using peptide modulators.

PhD project 2Elucidating aberrant biomolecular condensates in the PSD
The five key proteins present in the PSD (PSD-95, SynGAP, Homer, Shank and GKAP) are important for normal brain function, and dysfunction of these proteins has vast implications for a wide range of brain diseases. In this project the fellow will first explore the correlation between brain disorders and biomolecular condensates by introducing specific disease-relevant patient mutations into the proteins of interest and observe the effects on LLPS.  Additionally, the resulting impact of disease mutations on LLPS-PSD will guide efforts towards developing compounds to tackle neurological disorders.

PhD project 3Development of CNS-permeant peptide antivirals
The first part of the project involves developing peptides inhibiting infectivity by disrupting the spike protein receptor binding domain interactions with the human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 receptor, the binding target of the viral spike protein. The second involves developing peptides inhibiting virulence by targeting interactions of the viral envelope protein with host proteins containing PDZ domains.

(17) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: A Marie Sklodowska-Curie PhD fellowship on “Cellular memory and intestinal regeneration” is available at reNEW Copenhagen

We are seeking an ambitious, highly motivated, and technically skilled candidate preferably with experience in cell and molecular biology. The goal of the project is to decipher the cellular and molecular responses following tissue damage and during tissue regeneration in the intestinal epithelium using mouse models and patient samples. The intestinal epithelium has an amazing capacity to regenerate itself following damage via processes that involve pronounced changes in the cellular identity (see e.g. Larsen and Jensen, 2019, Curr Opin Genet Dev). We have demonstrated that this process depends on changes in the environment leading to integrin-based activation of mechanosensory pathway driven dedifferentiation processes vital for tissue regeneration (see Yui et al., 2018, Cell Stem Cell; Schweiger et al., 2022, Gastroenterology). Yet, how these changes impact cellular memory and what are the long-term consequences on cell fate decisions remain largely unknown. In this project, we will take advantage of established and optimised tools including single cell omics, lineage tracing and organoid technologies to address whether and how injury and the associated dedifferentiation influence cell behavior long-term.

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Quantum Photonics

The goal of the project is to develop a platform for photonic quantum information processing based on nano-opto-electro-mechanical systems (NOEMS) [1]. NBI has developed state-of-the-art deterministic single-photon sources [2] using semiconductor quantum dots integrated in photonic nanostructures. To fully harness the potential of integrated photonic quantum technologies, it is necessary to scale it up, i.e. to perform operations on many photonic quantum bits (or ‘qubits’) simultaneously to generate and manipulate entangled photons. The overarching goal is to demonstrate the seamless integration of single-photon sources with the quantum gates required for building truly scalable quantum photonic micro-processors. In this project we will pursue a novel approach to control light-matter interaction and quantum gates based exclusively on electro- and opto-mechanical interactions. The emphasis of this project will be in the design and fabrication of nanophotonic devices for scaling single-photon sources [3], with a focus on applications within quantum communication [4].

PhD position summary/title: PhD fellowship in Sleep Dynamics at Center for Translational Neuromedicine

Sleep is essential for cognitive performance, and it is well established that impaired sleep reduces cognition. Sleep is not a homogeneous brain state but composed of several micro-structures regulated by many regions within the brain. In recent years, short arousals have been recognized as an integral part of normal sleep adding to the complexity of sleep. We are interested in determining the impact of these frequent sleep-arousal transitions on shaping restorative sleep processes related to both memory consolidation and waste clearance. Aging is characterized by sleep disturbances, which could contribute to age-related cognitive decline. In this project, the PhD student will investigate how alterations in sleep microarchitecture during aging affects fluid flow in the brain and explore novel therapeutic strategies related to regulation of sleep-arousal transitions.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Role of extracellular histone modification in modulating inflammation and disease at the Department of Biomedical Sciences

Histone proteins are critical for the packaging of nuclear DNA, chromatin assembly and the regulation of gene expression. Post-translational modification of histones is critical in controlling their function in cells, as it regulates the accessibility of DNA to various proteins. However, injury to cells and the release of extracellular traps by immune cells results in the presence of histones in the extracellular environment. This can be beneficial, as histones kill bacteria and limit the spread of infection. However, this toxicity is not specific to pathogens and histones also damage host tissue, which can lead to organ failure and death. Although post-translational modification of histones is critical to their function, how this influences their reactivity outside cells is poorly characterised. This is significant because modification of histones is prevalent in the extracellular environment in vivo, particularly at inflammatory sites. In this project, we will examine post-translational modifications found on histones present in extracellular traps and use molecular biology combined with cellular proteomics to examine how these modifications influence the reactivity of histones with human immune and vascular cell types. This will provide valuable new insight into the inflammatory pathways activated by histones, which could underpin the development of new therapies targeting these proteins in a range of diseases, including atherosclerosis.

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.
