(02) 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.

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

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.

(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Call for postdoctoral fellow in comparative study of gut epithelium dynamics during inflammation through the NORPOD program

This position will involve designing, conducting, and analysing experiments to understand the link between mucosal barrier damage and sensitivity to inflammation. While larval zebrafish are transparent and allow imaging the gut response in vivo at organism level, mice are phylogenetically closer to humans, and have a more complex gut microbiota. Researchers with experience in neuroscience, microbiology and immunology are welcome to apply, but it is expected that you will span multiple of these fields once established in the labs. You will have the opportunity to develop your projects based on your existing experience and your own career goals.

(10) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Post-doc on modeling of two-phase flow in novel water electrolyzers

You will be a part of a ‘Grand Solution’ project with academic and industrial partners working on development of new foam-like electrodes to minimize cost of green hydrogen production.

Green hydrogen is a pillar of green energy transition. The ambition to reach net zero emission means that the production capacity of green hydrogen needs to increase multiple times in the coming years. Among technologies used to that end, alkaline electrolyzers are the most mature option; however, there is a clear room for improvement of their energy efficiency. The current project aims to develop a new porous electrode concept, and modeling provides a basis for understanding and optimization of the performance of this novel concept.

Your tasks in the project consist of development/improvement of numerical solvers for two-phase flow and mass transfer, conducting the simulations, analyzing the results, communicating and discussing the findings with project partners, and disseminating the results in form of articles, presentations, and the like. Numerical simulations are mostly done using OpenFoam, but use of other open-source research solvers can be considered.

(13) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:–Postdoc in Chronic Kidney Disease

The Laboratory of Renal Cell Remodelling lead by Assistant Professor Ina Maria Schiessl has recently published new insights on injury propagation along the nephron that may contribute to disease progression (PMID: 37479698). We now seek to explore if focal injury in the kidney may directly propagate into adjacent nephrons and thereby drive chronic kidney disease. In this project, we will dissect the mechanisms of kidney disease progression and potential intervention pathways using innovative injury models, serial intravital 2-photon microscopy of mouse kidneys, and state-of-the-art single cell and spatial RNA sequencing technology. Suitable candidate will acquire in vivo imaging and image analysis skills, collaborate on interdisciplinary projects with international collaborators, present their data at international conferences, and receive career development support. We are a young and international research group with the ambitious goal to stop kidney disease progression and we need you to be part of our team!
