5. Fully Funded PhD Position in Danish-German Cultures

Summary of PhD Program:

“Danish-German Cultures (1773-1864). Conflict and Cohesion” is a cultural history project which investigates the hybrid culture of Danish-German coexistence in the Danish composite state from 1773-1864. The aim of the project is to write a new transcultural history of art, literature, language and human practices. We will explore how authors, artists, intellectuals and academics, as well as civil servants and politicians, lived and worked in a zone with two nationalities and the two languages Danish and German in the cosmopolitan state. This will challenge the dominant narrative of ideological battles, mutual exclusions and war, and instead examine the dual conditions of conflict and cohesion before the formation of the Danish nation state in 1864.

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in Chemical Biology

Summary of PhD Program:

The five key proteins present in the PSD (PSD-95, SynGAP, Homer, Shank and GKAP) are important for normal brain function, and dysfunction of these proteins has vast implications for a wide range of brain diseases. The proteins comprise larger intrinsically disordered regions, and hence are also referred to as intrinsically disordered proteins (IDP). Those regions are often important for structure and function. In this project, the fellow will examine how targeting such IDPs of the PSD proteins with peptide-based probes will provide a better understanding how to restore the healthy state of PSD using peptide modulators.

Summary of PhD Program:

The PhD is part of a Novo Nordisk funded project led by Associate Professor Qian Janice Wang. Overall, the project aims to promote consumer behaviour change towards more sustainable food choices and consumption. Specifically, the PhD project will use a combination of virtual/physical retail spaces and biometric technology (e.g., eyetracking) to better understand and predict consumer food choice behaviour in both online and offline scenarios. A focus will be to manipulate context, defined as multisensory environmental elements as well as cognitive messaging, to study implicit and explicit consumer reactions and purchase behaviour. This research will help address the need to understand the drivers to shift consumer habits towards healthier and lower planetary footprint diets.

19. Fully Funded PhD Position in Environmental Toxicology

Summary of PhD Program:

It is impossible to assess the risk of all chemical pollutants to all species in the environment at all sorts of environmental conditons. Chemical risk assessments therefore depend on models which can predict the chemical fate and biological effect across species and endpoints. Several models exsist but few are fully evaluated for their ability to predict fate and effects under nature like conditions. The overall aim of QTOX is to address the robustness of models based on mechanistic knowledge of the underlying processes in the chain from exposure to effects, across all levels of biological organisation, with close connection to regulatory endpoints, and under environmentally realistic conditions, i.e., including the dynamics of chronic exposures to mixtures of chemicals. The robustness of all models will be evaluated on microcosm scenarios under two environmental regimes in Spain and Holland, respectively.

20. Fully Funded PhD Position in Characterization of Protein Modifications by Electrophiles

Summary of PhD Program:

Cardiovascular disease causes over 1.9 million deaths (~40% of all mortality) in the European Union each year. There is considerable evidence that a major cause of cardiovascular disease – atherosclerosis (which is characterized by lipid and cholesterol accumulation) is driven by chronic low-grade inflammation of the artery wall. Disease development is associated with the formation of atherosclerotic plaques and changes to both cellular proteins and the extracellular matrix (ECM) that surrounds and supports cells, and lipid deposition at sites of ECM damage. Inflammation, and the damage that it induces is believed to be an early and necessary event in lesion development, and critical in plaque rupture. In current studies we are examining the changes that occur to proteins within atherosclerotic plaques, and the role of reactive electrophiles (e.g. a,b-unsaturated aldehydes, metabolic products and related species) in protein modification and disease development.

21. Fully Funded PhD Position in Protein science

Summary of PhD Program:

The Kragelund-group focuses on the interaction of IDPs and IDRs with other biomolecules and on how disorder help expand molecular communication. We aim to provide a detailed understanding of how structural disorder leads to regulatory diversity and how this diversity relates to biological function. To achieve these goals, we host the Novo Nordisk Foundation Challenge Center REPIN – rethinking protein interactions, joining 5 different research groups in Europe. Additionally, we have state-of-the-art facilities for recombinant protein production and analytical tools such as CD, ITC, MST, nano-DSF, Q-TOF MS for biophysical and biochemical characterization. Our main technique is biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, and we have regular access to synchrotron SAXS.

22. Fully Funded PhD Position in Circadian Biology and Bioinformatics

Summary of PhD Program:

26. Fully Funded PhD Position in Interactions between Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic Microbiomes in Pigs

Summary of PhD Program:

The project will investigate the role of fungal and protozoan microeukaryotes as modulators of the intestinal bacterial community structure in pigs. Our hypothesis is that these microorganisms play a key, yet largely neglected role in the assembly and resilience of the bacterial microbiome. The project will benefit from the large amount and diversity of samples and data collected during longitudinal cohort studies conducted on pig farms in the two funding projects. The approach is to combine shotgun metagenomics with amplification and sequencing of the ITS2 region and the 18S rRNA gene, as these methods provide higher sensitivity for studying fungi and protozoa, respectively. Positive associations with pig health will be further validated under controlled experimental conditions by assessing the effects of administering selected fungal or protozoan species.

27. Fully Funded PhD Position in Chemical Biology at Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology

Summary of PhD Program:

Our laboratory has recently developed technology for identifying the chemical messenger molecules responsible for quorum sensing and crosstalk between staphylococci within the microbiome. These messenger molecules are called autoinducing peptides (AIPs). In this interdisciplinary and highly collaborative project, we will perform a substantial structure–activity relationship (SAR) study, building on our novel discoveries. Your tasks will thus include synthesis, assay development, and biological compound evaluation, including work performed in the laboratories of our collaborators at Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (UCPH) and at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.

28. Fully Funded PhD Position in Physics

Summary of PhD Program:

Active matter comprises a wide range of living systems including cells, bacteria, and subcellular filaments, as well as artificial and synthetic materials that are continuously driven far from equilibrium by their constituent elements. Fundamental biological processes such as cell division, cell death, and the emergence of coordinated motion of cells are governed by the activation of biochemical signals by mechanical stresses and by the physics of active matter. This research project will use theoretical and computational modeling with potential applications in the life sciences.
