University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

Postdoctoral Position in Stem Cell Biology and Single-cell Genomic

University of Southern Denmark (SDU)

Odense M, Denmark

A postdoctoral position is available at the Natarajan Lab ( to study transcriptional regulation and cell-fate decisions in embryonic stem cells. Our interdisciplinary and international team is part of Danish-Institute of Advanced Study (D-IAS) and based at the Functional Genomics and Metabolism Unit, at University of Southern Denmark (SDU).

We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious candidate to investigate transcriptional regulation, cell cycle and metabolic control in embryonic stem cells, using single-cell genomics and CRISPR approaches. The project would involve deriving transgenic stem cell lines, profiling using state-of-art approaches (bulk, single-cell transcriptomics, chromatin accessibility and multi-omics) and functional characterisation. The goal is to obtain mechanistic insights into dynamic stem cell regulation and cell-state transitions.

The selected applicant will be strongly supported by our skilled colleagues, our core infrastructure (single-cell genomics, sequencing etc.), Bio-imaging (DaMBIC) and computational facilities (eScience Centre, SDUCloud and National HPC Centre).

Deadline: 31 March 2020.
