Denmark: Postdoc Positions Normal/ malignant Stem Cell Research

3 Postdoctoral Positions in Normal and malignant Stem Cell Research at Finsen Laboratory and BRIC, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark As part of the newly established NNF Stem Cell Centre, DANSTEM, three postdoctoral positions are available in the group of Professor Bo Porse at the Finsen Laboratory, Rigshospitalet / BRIC, University of Copenhagen. Postdoctoral areas of research We are interested in the underlying mechanisms governing the properties of
normal and malignant stem cells.

Our main focus is, very broadly, how the control of gene expression contributes to the biology of normal hematopoietic stem cells and how this control is altered in acute myeloid leukemia. Research in the group involves the use of a number of experimental systems including human patient samples as well as genetically modified mouse models.

We have strong expertise in multicolor flow cytometry and use a number of genomic techniques – such as ChIP-seq to assess transcription factor binding and epigenetic configurations as well as microarray and sequencing-based (RNA-seq) gene expression profiling. Importantly, the interpretation of these data is supported by a number of “in-group” bioinformaticians as well as
extensive collaborations with the neighboring Bioinformatics Centre.

Thus, the successful candidates will join a dynamic research environment with access to all modern facilities. Please read more about the Finsen Laboratory and the research of Professor Bo Porse on and
