University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

PhD Fellowship in Functional Proteomics and Tissue Plasticity

University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

Odense M, Denmark

The DNRF Centre of Excellence, Center for Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity (ATLAS) at the University of Southern Denmark invites applications for a PhD scholarship from outstanding candidates with a keen interest in applying mass spectrometry-based functional proteomics to understand the molecular and cellular basis underlying tissue plasticity. The position is available from 1 February 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter.

The DNRF Centre ATLAS, headed by Professor Susanne Mandrup, aims to obtain system-level, mechanistic and cell type-resolved understanding of adipose and hepatic tissue plasticity in response to diet induced obesity and regression in mouse models; and to translate this for in-depth understanding of the functional changes in these human tissues in response to severe obesity and reversal. The centre applies a combination of next generation sequencing-based approaches, mouse models, proteomics, in vivo targeting, computational biology and clinical studies.

Deadline: 9 December 2019.
