The Section for Molecular Integrative Physiology, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, is recruiting one PhD student for a project starting February 2012 or soon thereafter. The PhD project is dedicated to study the role of extracellular ATP signalling and communication in pancreas. The PhD-student will study ATP release mechanisms and interactions between different cells in pancreas under physiological and pathophysiological conditions as models of pancreatitis and diabetes. The PhD stipend is co-financed and will be attached to the Epithelial Signalling Group headed by Professor Ivana Novak.
We search a highly motivated individual with M.Sc. degree in biology, human biology, molecular biomedicine, biochemistry, medicine or pharmacology. Previous experience in cell and molecular biology, tissue cultures, bioimaging and integrative studies on animal models is advantageous. Fluency in spoken and written English is a strong requirement.
