(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in plant protein Functionality
Protein- and starch-rich legumes are essential in the green transition in pursuit of increased sustainability and food security. In Europe, legumes are mainly used for animal feed, and ensuring a high yield is the major aim for the current legume breeding system. Developing legume cultivars adapted for human consumption is of great significance but has long been neglected. Gelation via protein and starch interactions is an important functionality to provide foods with unique sensorial and textural attributes. This project will study the gelation mechanism based on molecular interactions of proteins and starches in less-refined protein fractions provided by different cultivars. The project is founded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF) and is carried out is collaboration with SLU in Sweden.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral position in Comparative Studies of Digital Media and Political Contention, with a background in computational methods
Rapidly emerging technologies are playing a significant role in shaping the way in which people engage with politics and pursue social justice, as we see in the cases of Black Lives Matter, the #MeToo movement, and the Arab Spring. We know a great deal about the technologies people use in political contention and movements, as illustrated by terms like “Twitter uprising” or “Facebook revolution,” which became interchangeable with “the Arab Spring.” And yet, we know very little about why people choose some but not other technologies, and how people decide on specific political uses of certain technologies as what Tilly calls “repertoire of contention” across different contexts. The To-Use-or-Not project explores and compares the reasoning behind people’s diverse decisions on use and non-use of technology for political contention in specific contexts, with both ethnographic and computational methods. A short description of the project can be found here: https://tech-in-movement.ku.dk/.

Deadline : 16 April 2023
(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in plant Proteomics
There is an essential need for substitution of animal protein with plant protein in our diet to get a more sustainable food production, as up to 75% of the greenhouse gas emissions from our food consumption origins from meat and dairy food products. One of the major drivers for this shift is plant-based alternatives, however, animal protein provides unique sensory and textural properties. The structure of plant proteins is very different from animal proteins and many of the plant-based alternatives currently on the market are rejected by consumers due to poor structural properties. The goal of this project is to identify pea seeds from the NordGen genebank that are more suitable for plant-based alternatives than the commercial available pea cultivars.
Deadline : 16 April 2023
(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Two Postdoctoral Positions in International Law for the EASTERNISATION Research Project
In 2020, the EASTERNISATION project was originally conceived to examine the role that Russia and China played in the process of regionalization of international law (IL), and the impact that the process exerted on the stability of the international legal order (ILO). The recent turbulent developments, i.e. Russia’s unprovoked aggressive war against Ukraine and the resurgence of China’s belligerent rhetoric against Taiwan, demonstrate that regionalisation of IL – the use of IL as a tool to justify ambitious geopolitical goals in order to establish regional hegemony – is wreaking havoc on the existing ILO. Notwithstanding vocal condemnation of Russian and Chinese violations of IL by the international community, both countries vehemently deny that any of their actions are contrary to international law. The project aims to trace the trajectory of evolving Russian and Chinese narratives of international law from after the creation of the post-World War II order until modern times, which they have promoted to lend legitimacy to their military actions and foreign policy decisions. It will examine Russian and Chinese efforts to refute the universality of a human rights-oriented Western doctrine of IL and their adoption of a sovereignty-centred doctrine of IL, which stands in stark contrast to the countries’ actual belligerent conduct towards their neighbours.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doctoral position in cardiac calcium imaging
Clinical trials of pharmacological therapy for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) have produced largely neutral results. The management of patients with HFpEF is mostly directed toward treating associated conditions (e.g., hypertension and diabetes). We hypothesize that remodeling leading to HFpEF is bimodal: There is an increase in interstitial, cardiac fibrosis and there is a slowing of the intracellular calcium cycling during the heartbeat. You will test this hypothesis and also test the ability of drug-treatment to invigorate the intracellular calcium handling. We use a mouse model of HFpEF to study the disease progression and potential treatment strategies.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellowship Position in Biostatistics and Causal inference
We invite highly qualified, thorough and motivated applicants to apply for the positions. The postdoc will be involved in the project listed below as well as participating in the daily duties of the Department.
The project will focus on a project in biostatistics, specifically in two subprojects (Causal estimation and optimal treatment targeting with and without identification of the causal effect of interest). The project aims to develop methods and software that allow for the bounding and or targeting of optimal personalized treatment and the estimation of effects under such treatment decisions. The PostDoc will work on three overarching topics and is encouraged and expected to drive the ideas and solutions within these topics, but also potentially other topics selected and driven by the postdoc:
- Personalized treatment identification. Although the topic is specifically targeted for this optimization accounting for the burden of biomarker observation and the use of causal bounds in this optimization to account for data shortcomings, other methods and angles within this area are welcome.
- Causal effect estimation. Again, although ideally specifically in settings where the causal effect of interest is not fully identified due to uncontrolled confounding, all forms of methods development for causal effect estimation are welcome.
- Emulated trial. Specifically for the outcome of clinical utility in comparative effectiveness setting for treatment decision rules. However, just as with the above topics, less specific methods development within the topic of emulated trial designs would also be useful.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellowship in the advanced imaging of a symbiotic fungus
Symbioses often involve food exchange among interacting partners, but the nutritional dimensions underlying these transactions are often difficult to parse. The IEB group has developed techniques for using symbioses involving social insects as models for such inquiry. A main focus of our research is the remarkable lineage of fungus-farming ‘attine’ ants that have evolved diverse farming strategies for cultivating fungal symbionts which in turn have evolved key signatures of crop domestication (e.g. specialized nutritional rewards that occur nowhere else in the fungal kingdom). Our research is hypothesis driven and uses diverse methodological approaches to test these hypotheses ranging from field studies of free-ranging ant colonies in Panamanian rainforests, to laboratory studies of colony behavior and physiology, to in vitro tests of fungal cultivar performance, to diverse molecular and bioinformatics approaches. More information can be found on the IEB homepage (www.jonathanshik.com).

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.
