    Opportunity: Postdoc in Multivariate Dynamics of Cancer Cell Signaling @ Technical University of Denmark--Copenhagen, Denmark
    Submitted by Signatur AS; posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2012


    The Cellular Signal Integration Group (C-SIG),, is a network biology research group located at the Department of Systems Biology at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Our department represents one of the largest network biology centers in academia and has a highly multi-disciplinary profile. In our lab, we explore biological systems by developing and deploying algorithms aimed at predicting cell behavior with accuracy similar to that of weather or aircraft models. Our focus is on studying cellular signal processing and decision-making.

    Job Description:
    A postdoc position is available in Professor Dr Rune Linding's lab. Professor Linding is a world-leading network biologist whose laboratory is interested in the mechanisms by which cells use signaling networks to respond and adapt to changes in their environment. We are seeking highly motivated, bright researchers to join our highly dynamic, productive and stimulating lab.

    In this position, the successful applicant will work in a fast-paced dynamic environment, performing studies to advance research into biological and complex systems in order to develop new understanding of evolution and therapies of human diseases.

    We are seeking an experienced and motivated postdoc to work on a project related to our recent studies on phosphorylation networks (Bakal, Linding et al. Science 2008, Tan et al. Science 2009 and 2011, Tan et al. Science Signaling 2009 and Jorgensen et al. Science 2009). We will use our previously established JNK network as a basis to systematically investigate dysregulation of this network in cancer by combining computational modelling with quantitative phospho-proteomics and high-throughput imaging. The project involves a collaboration with Prof Doug Lauffenburger's lab at MIT (Boston, USA).


    The post-holder must be keen to generate, analyze and computationally integrate large-scale quantitative data to reach a deeper understanding of the data at hand.


    Candidates must hold a PhD degree in systems biology, biological engineering or another relevant field, and have experience in computational modeling. Experience in mammalian tissue culture, cell imaging, signal transduction, quantitative proteomics or phospho-proteomics is a distinct advantage.


    Salary and Terms of Employment:
    The postdoctoral salary in Denmark is one of the best world-wide and foreign researchers will be able to enter the country on a low tax rate (26%), while remaining fully eligible for all public services of the Danish well-fare society. The candidate will receive a high monthly retirement supplement in addition to the salary.

    The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations, and the relevant union negotiates the allowance.

    The period of employment is 2-3 years with the possibility of extension.


    DTU Offers:
    The C-SIG lab is part of the Center for Biological Sequence Analysis (CBS) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). CBS represents one of the largest systems- and computational biology centers in academia and has a highly multi-disciplinary profile. DTU strives for academic excellence, collegial respect and freedom tempered by responsibility. DTU is a leading technical university in Europe and ranks with the best universities in the world. We offer a highly attractive salary and the opportunity to take part in a frontier research program combating cancer.


    Application Procedure:
