2 PhD positions in Structural Mitochondrial Biology at CPR, University of Copenhagen

University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark
Application deadline: 11 Apr 2021

2 PhD positions in structural biology of mitochondria will be available in my newly established lab at the Novo Nordisk Center for Protein Research (CPR) at University Copenhagen. Their group has a deep interest in understanding the biology of human mitochondria with a specific focus on how these important organelles maintain their DNA and how they produce functional RNA species. The candidates will employ single-particle cryo-EM to understand the structure and working principles of mitochondrial machines involved in these processes.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates that are eager to acquire new methodology and have a genuine interest in understanding molecular mechanisms. At CPR, you will join an interdisciplinary, collaborative and supportive environment. The institute provides access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and instrumentation including a Titan Krios and a Glacios both equipped with Falcon III DED, as well as multiple smaller screening instruments. In addition, the center entertains a number of core facilities including protein production, crystallography, biophysics, high performance computing, mass spectrometry, and genomics. So you will find everything that is needed to help you succeed.

For informal inquiries, please contact me directly: Applications, however, will have to be submitted via the online portal


Application deadline is: 11 April 2021!
