1. Postdoctoral Positions in optomechanical sensing: Nanoguitars under pressure

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

This project aims at answering the question: How accurately can one measure low gas pressure in a simple and absolute manner? To attempt to answer it, optomechanical pressure sensors—consisting in highly tensioned strings sculpted on ultrathin dielectric drums—will be realized with the goal of performing absolute pressure measurements with sensitivities beyond the state-of-the-art by monitoring the pressure-induced modifications of the string vibrations (frequencies, damping) with a laser. The project is based on very recent breakthroughs realized by the group regarding the design, fabrication and application of nanostructured silicon nitride thin films. It will involve the use of nanofabrication technologies (Electron beam lithography, atomic force microscopy, etc.) and optical techniques (e.g. interferometry) as well as the simulation of the optical and mechanical properties of nanostructures (using e.g. Finite element methods).

2. Postdoctoral Positions in fluid-induced instabilities of multistable structures

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

Fluidic channels can be found in a variety of fields, from microfluidics to soft robotics, where they have the task to provide the robot with actuation and sensing capabilities. However, soft fluidic channels in robots are still in their infancy, relying on old technologies and simple geometries, with a strong limitation in terms of actuation, motion, function, and energy. In particular, the valves within the channels require external inputs to be controlled, thereby relying only on active control strategies, and their interaction with the fluid flow is not well understood, especially for large deformations.

15. Postdoctoral Positions in network-inspired models of heterogeneous materials

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

Most solid materials are heterogeneous at the µm scale. The heterogeneity can stem from the subdivision into domains, e.g. crystals in polycrystalline metals, as well as from the presence of secondary phase particles and porosities. This second type of heterogeneity is critical, because it dramatically affects the material mechanical properties. The effect can be either beneficial and purposely pursued, like in particle-reinforced composites and porous orthopedic implants, or heavily detrimental and cause for unpredicted failures, like undesired porosity in 3D printed metal parts. Theoretical tools exist to predict these effects, but they are highly computationally demanding as they involve the numerical solution of nonlinear differential equations.

16. Postdoctoral Positions for studying pollinator decline using genomics and environmental DNA

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

We are currently witnessing a decline in species richness and abundance for certain insect groups, of which pollinators is a key example.

21. Postdoctoral Positions in characterization of CD109’s structure and interactions

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

CD109 is a GPI-anchored cell surface protein that modulates TGFβ signaling through direct interactions with TGFβ cytokines and the type I receptor TβRI. As a member of the α-macroglobulin protein family, which also includes complement factor C3 and human alpha-2-macroglobulin, CD109 has a complex multi-domain structure and can exist in multiple conformations. We have established the production of recombinant soluble CD109 in mammalian cells, as well as methods to induce its different conformations. This project will therefore be able to focus on the structural determination of CD109 by cryo-electron microscopy. The recombinant CD109 will also be used for binding studies with CD109’s interaction partners, as well as the identification of new interaction partners e.g. by pull-down studies.

22. Postdoctoral Positions in engineering protease-activated immunotherapeutic antibodies using a novel prodrug

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

Our group has invented a new technology that can convert existing antibodies into prodrug versions that must be proteolytically activated before they can bind to their target antigen. Until now, we have prioritized immune checkpoint blockade antibodies. This project, funded by the Danish Cancer Society, will investigate the application of our technology toward bispecific T cell-redirecting antibodies. Much of the proof-of-concept antibody engineering is already in place, and we anticipate that most of the research period will be used on antibody characterization and optimization. The candidate will participate in planning and preparing for in vivo experiments (in xenograft mouse models) testing anti-tumor efficacy, which will be performed by our collaborators at the CCIT. There will be considerable room for the candidate to shape the project within the overall project theme.

23. Postdoctoral Positions in the molecular mechanism of aggrephagy

Summary of Postdoctoral Fellowships:

Cytoplasmic aggregates can be selectively eliminated by autophagy through a selective process called aggrephagy. This is particularly relevant in the nervous system where an impairment in autophagy leads to neurodegeneration and may explain why mutations in ATG genes cause neurobiological diseases. This clearance capacity of autophagy has unique therapeutic potentials because genetic and pharmacological activation of this pathway delays the onset of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by cytoplasmic aggregates such as Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. The mechanism underlying aggrephagy in non-neuronal and neuronal cells, however, remains largely unclear. In non-neuronal tissues, cytoplasmic aggregates are ubiquitinated and recognized by autophagy receptors such as TAX1BP1 and p62, which mediate their sequestration into autophagosomes. How this recognition is accomplished in neurons is unclear.
