Qualification Details

You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.

Approval and Enrolment

The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The successful applicant will work within the research group ‘Protease Network Degradomics’ headed by Professor Ulrich auf dem Keller.

In our research group, we apply and develop advanced positional mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics workflows to identify proteases, elucidate their interactions and determine their substrates in inflammation, repair and regeneration. With a major focus on the skin, we aim at elucidating interdependent proteolytic pathways and their disturbance in disease to provide a basis for the development of novel strategies for diagnostics and therapeutic intervention.


The newly recruited PhD student will work with a team of postdocs and PhD students and in close collaboration with the DTU Proteomics Core to characterize the epidermal protease network and its disturbances in inflammatory skin diseases. In addition to cutting-edge MS-based proteomics, the project will involve mammalian cell culture and advanced organotypic skin models.
