The Cardiac Proteomics Group at Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen wishes to appoint a talented post doctoral fellow for a 2-year position for a joint proteomics, transcriptomics, and genomics project investigating the underpinnings of cardiac disease. The post doctoral fellow will use quantitative proteomics based approaches to identify the molecular changes in cardiac disease in an unbiased manner from human heart biopsies. From the same biopsies, the fellow will obtain WGS and single cell transcriptomics data and integrate this information across the omics datasets acquired. This will  lead to investigation of the cardiac disease at unprecedented molecular level.

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our team, who will work on a large scale project investigating the molecular changes in heart disease by state-of-the-art measurements from human heart biopsies.

Qualification Requirements

  • Holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry, bioinformatics or a closely related field
  • Ambitious, creative, independent and self-driven
  • Hands on skills and expert knowledge in one or more of the following areas:
    • Experimental or analytical know-how of mass spectrometry based proteomics (LC-MS/MS)
    • Experimental or analytical know-how of single cell transcriptomics
    • Analytical experience with WGS data
    • Experience integrating omics information across data types
  • Experience working with fixed, embedded tissue samples and/or prior experience within molecular cardiac research is an advantage but not a requirement.
  • Good communication skills in English, both oral and written

The preferred applicant should have an excellent academic track record, solid research experience and be highly motivated to deploy diverse strategies to extract novel findings of importance to cardiac pathophysiology. Previous research experience in a competitive environment is required.

Our group and environment
The candidate will be part of the Cardiac Proteomics group led by Professor Lundby at the Department of Biomedical Sciences and affiliated with the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The successful candidate will be working in a team of scientists across multiple scientific fields focused on improving our molecular understanding of cardiac pathophysiologies. Our facilities include state-of-the-art laboratories and core facilities and modern office spaces. The position provides a unique opportunity to develop expertise in cutting edge quantitative mass spectrometry based proteomics, data analysis of large datasets and integration of multi-omics datasets. Striving for academic excellence, collegial respect and freedom tempered by responsibility, we offer creative, friendly and stimulating working conditions in a dynamic and strong scientific environment where you get the opportunity to plan your work independently to further your professional and personal development.
