The Porse group at University of Copenhagen is seeking two highly motivated postdocs to work on stem cell biology.
Our research/The group
The Porse group (Finsen Laboratory/BRIC) has a diverse and stimulating environment and we focus our research on elucidating mechanisms governing normal and malignant haematopoiesis with special emphasis on the behaviour of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) during adult haematopoiesis and leukemic stem cells (LSCs) in acute myeloid leukaemia. To this end, we employ mouse models of human AML, mouse knockout lines of putative HSC/LSC regulators, primary patient material and a broad range of genome-wide approaches and single cell analyses incl. cutting edge single cell proteomics.
The Porse group is affiliated with the Finsen Laboratory at Rigshospitalet as well as with BRIC at the University of Copenhagen. You can read mor about Porse group here: https://www.bric.ku.dk/research-groups/Research/Porse_Group/
