Postdoc  summary/title:–2-yr postdoc on Vegetation-climate interactions under rising biosphere novelty

The main aim of this postdoc project is to assess the capacity of vegetation to maintain diversity and ecological functioning (resilience) and mitigate climate change (carbon pools and accumulation) under ongoing global change, notably climate change and biotic globalization. To address, this overarching, complex question several research approaches may be used in various combinations, e.g., statistical, and process-based plant diversity and vegetation modelling, remote sensing, meta-analyses, existing paleoecological data, and field-based work in ECONOVO’s study areas in Europe and South Africa. Key topics of interest include the role played by plant diversity, megafauna-linked trophic complexity, and geodiversity. We are open to hearing the candidate’s take on this and would like the postdoc to contribute ideas and concepts to the project and lead at least three high-quality papers in this research area. We also emphasize the importance of engaging fully in the center’s outreach and educational efforts, while also supporting and encouraging collaborative work with ECONOVO colleagues, including students.

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Two postdoctoral positions in research project on political polarization at Aarhus University

The position is part of the project “PEERPOL”. In the 4.5-year project funded by the Danish Research Council (6.19 million DKR), we will explore how political polarization emerges and spreads through peer-to-peer communication between citizens. Whereas much is already known about elite-level causes of polarization, the project will explore its emergence through communication and opinion formation in social networks between citizens. In addition, the project designs and tests interventions against citizen-level causes of polarization.

The project develops a theoretical framework for understanding when and why citizens contribute to affective and ideological polarization through selection into social networks, biased information sharing, and interactions with in- and outgroup members. Methodologically, the project mainly relies on survey, social media, and field or natural experimental data to employ causally credible evidence. Empirically, the project will mainly study polarization in Western Europe and the United States in cross-national and single-country studies.

This research project will involve working with the Danish National Registers and the iPSYCH sample. iPSYCH is a national project founded in 2012 by six leading researchers in the fields of psychiatry and genetics. The purpose of iPSYCH is to find the causes and create the basis for better treatment and prevention of five of the most serious mental disorders: autism, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. By examining genes and risk factors in more than 130,000 Danes – both those who suffer from mental disorders and those who do not – we shed light on the interaction between heredity factors and the environment, which for some people result in them developing a mental disorder. Today iPSYCH is one of the world’s largest studies of the genetic and environmental causes of mental disorders and it involves more than 150 researchers within psychiatry, genetics and register-based research.

(14) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoc in Organelle Quality Control by Autophagy

Autophagy is a catabolic process highly conserved among eukaryotes, which is involved in the degradation of long-lived proteins, aberrant complexes and aggregates, dysfunctional and superfluous organelles, and intracellular pathogens. Structures targeted to destruction, including intracellular organelles, are sequestered by double-membrane vesicles called autophagosomes and delivered to lysosomes for turnover. The central players of autophagy are the autophagy-related (ATG) proteins. Autophagy can be highly selective and target specific unwanted structures using the so-called selective autophagy receptors (SARs) and various adaptor proteins.

The overall aim of the project is to understand the relevance of autophagy, ATG proteins and SARs in the quality control of intracellular organelles such as the endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria and peroxisomes. The overall idea is to identify how these players sense and then mediate the turnover of local dysfunctions in these organelles.

(15) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoc position: Second language learning in Danish social and healthcare education

The research project Sociolinguistic Barriers and Potentials among Second Language Learners in Danish Social and Healthcare Education explores social and linguistic barriers and potentials among second language learners in Danish social and healthcare education (‘SOSU-hjælperuddannelsen’ and ‘SOSU-assistentuddannelsen’), an educational field which has attracted increasing political attention due to a drastic projected shortfall in healthcare personnel in coming years and high dropout rates. More than 30% of SOSU students are assumed to have Danish as a second language, representing more than 109 different nationalities and a vast array of linguistic repertoires.

The project focuses on the linguistic practices of students with Danish as a second language, the linguistic barriers and demands associated with different parts of their healthcare training, and how students respond to these barriers and demands in everyday interaction, drawing on linguistic and sociocultural registers of healthcare, education and care. The SOSU programme includes a variety of educational arenas for linguistic minority students, including healthcare training, language lessons and internships across nursing homes, hospital wards and private homes, where students are expected to interact with teachers, supervisors and co-students along with patients, elderly citizens, relatives and various kinds of healthcare personnel. An in-depth linguistic-ethnographic approach is applied, including extensive digital sound recordings, qualitative interviews and participant observation, to explore students’ linguistic practices, barriers and potentials, along with the various linguistic skills and sociocultural registers associated with becoming a ‘good SOSU worker’ across different institutional arenas.
