Postdoc Position in RNA Therapeutics, Proteomics and Lipidomics at University of Southern Denmark


A postdoctoral position is currently available in the Ejsing Lab at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. The position is available for one year, with the possibility for extension up to four years in total. Contact Professor Christer Ejsing directly for further details (cse@bmb.sdu.dk).
The research project is focused on developing and applying mass spectrometry-based proteomic and lipidomic methods for assessing the therapeutic efficacy of antisense oligonucleotides targeting lipid metabolic machinery (e.g. see Schmidt et al., 2022).
We are seeking a motivated and technically skilled person with a strong background in mass spectrometry-based proteomics (especially targeted quantitative analysis), lipidomics or metabolomics. It is preferred that the applicant has experience in high-resolution mass spectrometry, data management and bioinformatics/computational data analysis as well as handling samples from rodents and humans. Effective communication skills, a strong work ethic, ability to work both independently and in a collaborative group environment, are required. Candidates must hold a doctoral degree.
The research project is part of an international effort (LiverTarget) with partners in industry and academia focused on developing RNA therapeutics towards lipid metabolic pathways responsible for a fatal outcome in patients with cardiovascular disease.
Application deadline: 1 November 2022.
