PhD/Post doc position in translational reproductive endocrinology
We are looking for a highly motivated and dedicated person, who has an interest and preferentially experience with mammalian cells culture. The project will focus on isolation, culture, and propagation of the androgen producing cells of the ovary – the theca cells. The hormone activity of the cultured theca cells will be evaluated together with the proteogenomic expression profiles potentially providing tools to adjust and optimize cell function in different disease states. The post.doc is for two years and the PhD for three years.
Your tasks will include:
- Collection of theca— and granulosa cells from human ovaries obtained in connection fertility preservation
- Laboratory work including a range of biochemical methods
- Independent research of high international quality, including publication
- Establishment of cell lines derived from human ovarian follicles
You have an academic degree (M.Sc./M.D. or PhD) preferably within one or several of the following areas: Cell culture, reproduction, fertility, endocrinology, or stem cells. We expect you to be fluent in oral and written English and have writing skills.
Preferentially the candidate should possess experience with:
- Mammalian cell culture including isolation and propagation of cells
- Microscopy, including immunofluorescence analysis
- qPCR analysis
- Western blot and ELISA analysis
As a person, you are ambitious, take ownership and possess good communication and interpersonal skills. We are looking for a colleague who is:
- Able to work independently in a team-based environment
- Able to make decisions and provide input on your project
- Ambitious, proactive, and structured in approach to problem-solving
- Intellectually quick, curious, and disciplined
- Strong in interpersonal skills and able to build good collaborative relationships
About the Laboratory of Reproductive Biology
Laboratory of Reproductive Biology focuses on basic and translational science in reproductive biology, with special emphasis on fertility preservation in both women and men, reproductive endocrinology and hormonal signaling. We are physically located at Rigshospitalet, Blegdamsvej 9, 2100 CPH. We are an international orientated laboratory with high scientific ambitions with around 15 employees. We value a friendly and corporative atmosphere and have strong collaborations across projects. We have many international collaborations and the working language is English. Our lab is up-to-date with equipment to perform the planned studies. The successful candidate will be employed according to qualifications and the agreement for employment in the Danish public sector.
