Three Postdoc positions for 3 years in stem cell-based disease modelling, transplantation therapy and bioinformatic at Kirkeby's Lab @ Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Medicine (reNEW) at University of Copenhagen
This candidate will enter into several research projects aiming to perform in vivo testing of novel stem cell-based transplantation therapies for neurodegenerative diseases. The position will involve both testing of improved versions of stem cell therapies for Parkinson’s disease as well as testing of stem cell transplantations in a narcolepsy model. The project will further involve in vivo functional testing of hypo-immune “stealth” cell lines to assess the clinical translational value of such universal gene-edited stem cell lines.
This candidate will be responsible for bioinformatic single cell RNAseq (scRNAseq) analysis of differentiating human neural cells, harvested both in vitro as well as from long-term matured grafts in rats. The aim is to apply such analysis to uncover human neural lieage trajectories and the compositions of human neural stem cell transplants. The main tasks of the position will be bioinformatic analyses, but combination with wet lab experiments will be possible, depending on the skills and wishes of the candidate. You will be working on projects together with other team members and we therefore expect experience in working in teams.
