PhD fellowship in The Liu Group, Center for Chromosome Stability (CCS), Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM)

项目介绍

Following the award of a DFF project grant, a PhD fellowship is available in the Liu Group at the Center for Chromosome Stability (CCS), Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM), from 1 April 2022 or soon thereafter. 

The aim of the project is to identify and characterize chromosomal loci destabilized by folate deficiency in human cells. Folate deficiency is known to be associated with genome instability and several pathological conditions in humans. 

The Liu Group is based in the Center for Chromosome Stability (CCS) (https://icmm.ku.dk/english/research-groups/liu-group/), a Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. 

The focus of the CCS is to understand the mechanisms underlying the maintenance of genome stability in eukaryotic cells, with the ultimate aim being the development of strategies to improve human health. 

Job description
Your key tasks as a PhD student at SUND are: 

  • Carry out and complete an independent research project under the supervision of one or more of the CCS group leaders.
  • Complete PhD courses or other equivalent education corresponding to approximately 30 ECTS points.
  • Write reports, scientific articles, and a PhD thesis on the basis of his/her research project.
  • Spend a period of research training in at least one other laboratory outside of the University of Copenhagen, preferably abroad, in order to broaden his/her research experience.
  • Obtain experience with teaching within the department’s undergraduate curriculum and/or other types of dissemination activities related to his/her PhD project.
  • Participate in national and international congresses and scientific meetings. 

The key criteria for the assessment of applicants
Applicants must have qualifications corresponding to a master’s degree Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine or similar (equivalent of the Danish candidate, 3 + 2 years) related to the subject area of the project. 

Certified copy of original Master of Science diploma and transcript of records in the original language, including an authorized English translation if issued in other language than English or Danish. If not completed, a certified/signed copy of a recent transcript of records or a written statement from the institution or supervisor is accepted. 

As a prerequisite for a PhD fellowship employment, your master’s degree must be equivalent to a Danish master’s degree. We encourage you to read more in the assessment database: https://ufm.dk/en/education/recognition-and-transparency/find-assessments/assessment-database.

  • Strong collaboration skills, including the ability to work well in international academic settings.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English.
  • A strong academic record; work experience relevant to the research areas of Liu group; track record of publication-standard research; good time-management skills.

The successful candidate will be registered at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM) and conduct his/her research in Liu group with the above project as the research focus.

Furthermore the successful candidate will have the advantage of learning technologies in the fields of molecular/cellular biology, biochemistry, high content screening systems and advanced microscopy. Candidates of any nationality are welcome to apply. 

Research environment 
The CCS provides an international quality research environment to train young researchers. The working language of the CCS is English. 

Place of employment
The place of employment is at the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine (ICMM). Our lab offers a creative and ambitious scientific environment with nine different nationalities presently represented and English as the working language.
