The Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports invites applications for a Ph.D. scholarship. The candidate will work in the areas of integrative physiology, with focus on advanced invasive human models, cell culture and molecular biology.
The position is for a 3-year period and will commence ۱st of March 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Description of the scientific environment
The Integrative Physiology group covers a broad area of research of muscular, cardiovascular and skeletal adaptations to acute exercise and exercise training. We focus on performance and the health-related benefits of regular exercise.
The group uses complex human models and molecular biology techniques to study integrated and isolated effects of exercise and exercise training related to the regulation of muscle metabolism, angiogenesis, blood flow, insulin sensitivity, ion transport, fatigue, temperature balance and bone mineral density. Animal and cell culture models are applied when the aspects cannot be studied in humans.
We focus on novel physiological mechanisms and conduct studies in which the results can be applied to the everyday life in groups of patients, healthy individuals of different ages and athletes.
The PhD project is a part of a research collaboration between the Section of Integrative Physiology, Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, and several other Universities including Radboud University Nijmegen Holland and The School of Sport and Exercise Science, Liverpool John Moores University.
The purpose of the project is to investigate how remote ischemic preconditioning (RIC) can improve vascular function in other areas of the body. The project comprises of 2-3 human experiments and several cell culture studies. To study the physiological mechanisms underlying the positive effects of RIC, invasive procedures such as muscle biopsies, microdialysis and arteriovenous catheters are used. In addition, cell studies in which, platelets, endothelial cells and skeletal muscle cells are isolated are used to describe the molecular mechanisms of RIC.
Principal supervisor is Professor, Dr.Med. Sc., Ylva Hellsten and co-supervisor is Assistant professor, Ph.D., Lasse Gliemann, Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen
The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:

Since the successful applicant will be involved in writing applications for ethical approval and will be in contact with Danish speaking volunteers it is important that applicants have excellent command of the Danish language. In addition, the applicant must have excellent command of English written and spoken language. Experience with invasive human experiments and/or cell studies is an advantage. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications emphasis will also be laid on relevant work experience within the research field and previous publications (if any).
It is a prerequisite that the candidate can be enrolled as a Ph.D. student at the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen.
Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.
Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.
The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 306,667 including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 42,361). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.
The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.
•Cover Letter, stating which PhD project you are applying for and detailing your motivation and background for applying for the specific PhD project (max. two pages).
•Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc)
•Other information for consideration, e.g. list of publications (if any)
•Full contact details (Name, address, telephone & email) of 1-3 professional referees
The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
The deadline for applications is ۲۰th January 2017,23:59 GMT +1. Applications received after the deadline for applications will not be considered.
After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee. Afterwards an assessment committee will be appointed to evaluate the selected applications. The applicants will be notified of the composition of the committee and the final selection of a successful candidate will be made by the Head of Department, based on the recommendations of the assessment committee and the interview committee.
The main criterion for selection will be the research potential of the applicant and the above-mentioned skills. The successful candidate will then be requested to formally apply for enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD school of Science.
