Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:

The Department of Biomedicine at Faculty of Health at Aarhus University invites applications for a position as Postdoc in infection neuroscience as per 1 July 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is a fixed-term full-time position for 36 months.

About the research project

Viral infections in the brain can have fatal outcomes if not controlled by the immune system. At the same time, the immune response can also cause both acute and long-term damage to the brain. Therefore, there is an increasing appreciation of the role of the immune system in acute infections, post-infectious brain conditions, and neurodegenerative diseases. Despite this interest, the mechanisms involved remain poorly understood. This project aims to uncover novel immunological mechanisms underpinning post-infectious brain conditions and neurodegenerative diseases.

Your job responsibilities

As Postdoc in infection neuroscience your position is primarily research-based but may also involve teaching assignments. You will contribute to the development of the department through research of high international quality, including publication. In your daily work, you will work closely with colleagues on your project, where you will receive supervision and guidance.

You will report to Professor Søren Riis Paludan.

Your competences

You have academic qualifications at PhD level in the area of neuroscience and may also have experience in or a strong interest to learn about immunology. We are looking for a person with practical experience in mouse models in neuroscience or neuropathology, and relevant associated methodologies; hence, FELASA-B qualification is a plus.

Highly desirable additional skills (though not essential) include at least two of the following methods:

  • calcium imaging
  • electrophysiology (intra- or extracellular recording)
  • intracerebral injections
  • microdissection of the CNS regions
  • immunohistochemistry
  • quantitative confocal microscopy
  • behavioral assessment
  • single-molecule RNA hybridization.

As a person, you are ambitious, take ownership of and responsibility for your work, and possess good communication and interpersonal skills. You are inclusive and team-oriented and able to contribute to a good work environment. We expect you to be fluent in oral and written English.

In order to be considered qualified for a postdoc position, you must meet these academic criteria.

Shortlisting will be used.

The Department of Biomedicine

The department of Biomedicine prioritises diversity and a good work environment, as this is a prerequisite for groundbreaking research. In a diverse and international research environment, dedicated employees are looking to generate new knowledge within biomedical research areas such as infection and inflammation, membranes, neuroscience, and personalised medicine. The Department of Biomedicine provides research-based teaching of the highest quality and is responsible for a large part of the medical degree programme. Academic staff contribute to the teaching. English is the preferred language in the laboratory, at meetings and at seminars. The department employs approx. 500 people from all over the world, and they make use of the department's modern laboratory-, core- and animal facilities. The Department of Biomedicine focuses on innovation, entrepreneurship and collaboration with business and industry, and numerous researchers from the department have established companies to develop new medicinal treatments founded in professional scientific basic research. You can read more about the department here and about the faculty here.

The host laboratory

The laboratory of Professor Søren Paludan is interested in understanding early immune responses against viral infections, with a focus on the central nerve system (CNS). We use a broad range of experimental systems, ranging from molecular screening tools, state-of-the-art methods for molecular/cellular characterization, animal models, and primary human cell/organoid models. We offer a unique environment to perform this project by combining multidisciplinary research teams, skilled technical staff, biosafety level 2+ laboratories to manipulate viral vectors, and state-of-the-art facilities to study CNS-virus interactions at the molecular, cellular, functional, and behavioural level.

We have a very international environment, with more than half of all lab members from a non-Danish background. You should be fluent in oral and written English, which is the preferred language in the laboratory, at meetings and in seminars. Our core values are high ambitions, a collaborative and friendly culture, and development of talent.

The laboratory is part of the Center for Immunology of Viral Infections Center or Immunology of Viral Infections (CiViA).
