2 PhD/Postdoctoral Positions at University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Nano-structured junctions with molecules bound between electrodes present interesting systems for molecular electronic and thermoelectric devices. These projects will investigate inelastic electron transport and heat transport in conducting junctions with a particular focus on strategies for controlling these processes chemically.

PhD employment will be for a period of 3 years, postdoc. employment will be for 1 year with the possibility of extension.
The Terms of appointment and payment are in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Federation of Professional Associations (AC).

3 Postdoctoral Positions in Normal and Malignant Stem Cell Research, Denmark

We are interested in the underlying mechanisms governing the properties of normal and malignant stem cells. Our main focus is, very broadly, how the control of gene expression contributes to the biology of normal hematopoietic stem cells and how this control is altered in acute myeloid leukemia.

Research in the group involves the use of a number of experimental systems including human patient samples as well as genetically modified mouse models. We have strong expertise in multicolor flow cytometry and use a number of genomic techniques – such as ChIP-seq to assess transcription factor binding and epigenetic configurations as well as micro array and sequencing-based (RNA-seq) gene expression profiling. Importantly, the interpretation of these data is supported by a number of “in-group” bioinformaticians as well as extensive collaborations with the neighboring Bio informatics Centre. Thus, the successful candidates will join a dynamic research environment with access to all modern facilities.
