Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Cell Biology of Tubulogenesis and its impact on Cell Differentiation at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology (DanStem)

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen 
 
 
Background: 
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology – DanStem has been established as a result of a series of international recruitments coupled with internationally recognized research groups focused on insulin producing beta cells and cancer research already located at the University of Copenhagen. DanStem addresses basic research questions in stem cell and developmental biology and has activities focused on the translation of promising basic research results into new strategies and targets for the development of new therapies for cancer and chronic diseases such as diabetes and liver failure. Find more information about the Center at http://danstem.ku.dk/.
 
Job Description:  
We are looking for a postdoctoral candidate with a strong developmental biology/cell signaling background and/or a biological image processing background to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms of lumenogenesis and tubulogenesis and their role in balancing cell proliferation and differentiation of multipotent progenitors in the developing pancreas. The candidate is expected to use both in vivo (mouse) and in vitro (human pluripotent stem cells) experimental models. The position is for 2 years with possible extension. The employment is planned to start December 1st 2017 or upon agreement with the chosen candidate. 
 
Qualifications: 
The candidate is required to hold a PhD degree in stem cell/developmental/cell biology/biological image processing. A few years of postdoctoral experience in the same areas is a merit. A candidate with biological background should also have hands on experience in mouse genetics, micro dissection of mouse embryonic organs, human pluripotent stem cell culture and differentiation, live-cell imaging, quantitative image analysis. A candidate with image processing background should have experience with segmentation and tracking in large 3D datasets and an interest in learning to work with the biological techniques described above. Finally, we are looking for applicants with a good record of peer reviewed scientific publications and grant writing skills. 
 
Employment Conditions: 
The terms of employment are set according to the Agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations or other relevant professional organization. The position will be at the level of postdoctoral fellow and the basic salary according to seniority is 32.700-34.400 DKK/month. A supplement could be negotiated, dependent on the candidate´s experiences and qualifications. In addition a monthly contribution of 17.1% of the salary is paid into a pension fund. Applicants that are recruited from abroad may be eligible for a special researcher taxation scheme. In all cases, the ability to perform the job will be the primary consideration, and thus we encourage all - regardless of their personal background and status - to apply.
