PhD Position in Adipocyte Signalling Using Advanced Functional Genomics

Syddansk Universitet


The Center for Adipocyte Signaling – ADIPOSIGN at the Functional Genomics & Metabolism Research Unit, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark, invites applications from outstanding candidates who are interested in joining our team as a PhD student. The PhD student will be affiliated with the Kornfeld Group. The position is available from 1 October 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. 

ADIPOSIGN is a new centre established for a six-year period through a major grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation. We combine experimental and computational systems approaches to obtain unprecedented insights into how fat cells receive and respond to signals at the level of the (epi)-genome and the cell membrane. Our goal is to understand how the signalling states of adipocytes depend on depot, gender and genetic variation, and how changes in these signalling states during development of obesity contribute to the pathophysiological consequences of obesity.

Deadline: 30 July 2019.
