The research group of Luis Arnes is looking for a highly
motivated, ambitious and reliable candidate to join our laboratory focusing on
understanding the role of non-coding RNAs in development and cancer. The
position is for three years and is immediately open for appointment.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell
) is an
international research institute, at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
of the University of Copenhagen, solving complex problems in stem cell and
developmental biology, spanning early embryonic development and organogenesis
through advanced disease development and cell or drug-based therapies.
Through an increasingly quantitative approach with
advanced imaging and single cell analyses, our researchers are teasing out the
details of how specific cues transduce to gene regulatory events, such as
modulation of epigenetic states or gene transcription, to control stem cell
behavior. These studies allow us to unravel fundamental issues in the field and
facilitate the translation of novel insights into medical practice.
Our aim is to understand the molecular regulation of
cellular identity in pancreas development and cancer and translate this
knowledge into better diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic ductal
