Apply for the job at DTU Bioengineering by completing the following form.
The section for Protein Science and Biotherapeutics at the Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine has an opening for a position as postdoctoral researcher. The position will be available from October 2019 or soon thereafter.
The successful applicant will work within the research group ‘Protease Network Degradomics’ headed by Professor Ulrich auf dem Keller.
In our research group, we apply and develop advanced positional proteomics workflows to identify proteases, elucidate their interactions and determine their substrates in inflammation, repair and regeneration. With a major focus on the skin, we aim at elucidating interdependent proteolytic pathways and their disturbance in disease to provide a basis for the development of novel strategies for diagnostics and therapeutic intervention.
Responsibilities and tasks
Within a research project funded by the LEO Foundation, the newly recruited postdoctoral researcher will work on the functional characterization of newly identified protease targets in skin inflammation and repair.
Applicants should hold a PhD in a life sciences discipline, have excellent communication skills and be extensively trained in protein biochemistry, cell culture systems and biological sample preparation. Critical for this position is advanced experience with organotypic skin cultures and CRISPR genome editing. Prior experience in mass spectrometry-based proteomics is not mandatory but would be advantageous.
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.
Salary and terms of employment
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.
The positions will be located at the DTU Lyngby campus in a newly established research building hosting ultra-modern laboratories for protein science and the DTU Proteomics Core with state-of-the-art mass spectrometers.
Initially, the position is for 2 years.
