PhD Positions to Study Adipocyte and Hepatic Cellular Plasticity Using Advanced Functional Genomics

University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

Odense M, Denmark

The Center for Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity (ATLAS) at the Functional Genomics & Metabolism Research Unit, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark, invites applications from outstanding candidates who are interested in joining our team as PhD students. One of the PhD students will be affiliated with the Mandrup Group, the other will be affiliated with the Grøntved Group. The positions are available from 1 June 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Center for Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity (ATLAS) at the University of Southern Denmark is supported by the Danish National Research Foundation. The aim of ATLAS is to obtain systems-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 human adipose and hepatic tissues in response to severe obesity and reversal. The centre applies a combination of functional genomics approaches including single cell sequencing, mouse models, proteomics, in vivo targeting, computational biology and clinical studies.

Deadline: 6 April 2020.
