You have academic qualifications at PhD level, preferably within one or more of the following areas: The ideal candidate would have experience with molecular biology in general as well as cell culturing and cell-based assays. Knowledge of keratinocytes and skin biology would be an advantage but is not a requirement.
As a person, you are ambitious, take ownership and possess good communication and interpersonal skills. We expect you to be fluent in oral and written English.
In order to be assessed as qualified for a Postdoc position, you must meet these academic criteria.
The post.doc position is part of a joint project between Department of Clinical Medicine and the iNANO centre entitled “Advanced 2D cell culture for improved phenotype assays”. This project will investigate new technologies to improve phenotype and extend the possibilities for cell assays for use in early drug identification and characterization. This will be made possible by culturing skin cells on appropriate ligand patterns to form specific adhesions, combined with immobilized signaling molecules, thereby mimicking the in vivo cellular context and enabling cellular differentiation and/or activation stages otherwise difficult to replicate in 2D in vitro cultures.The project will be conducted at the research facilities at the Department of Dermatology, Institute of Clinical Medicine, Aarhus University Hospital.
Your job responsibilities
As Postdoc in advanced 2D cell culturing 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. In your daily work, you will work closely with colleagues on your project, where you will receive supervision and guidance.Your main tasks will consist of:
- Independent research of high international quality, including publication.
- You will be part of an interdisciplinary research team where your primary responsibility will be to culture skin cells on different ligand patterns and to develop cell-based assays for phenotype characterisation. This will be done in close collaboration with researchers at iNANO who will provide the ligand patterns for the project.
You will report to the associate professor Claus Johansen.

About the Department/Section/Group
As a postdoc at the Department of Clinical Medicine, you will be part of what is probably the largest health science research department in Denmark. Our clinical research covers all the medical specialities and takes place in close collaboration with the university hospital and the regional hospitals in the Central Denmark Region. We have approx. 30,000 square metres of modern research facilities for experimental surgery and medicine, animal facilities and also advanced scanners at our disposal. The department has overall responsibility for the Master's degree programs in medicine and in molecular medicine. At the department we are approx. 425 academic employees and the same number of PhD students cooperating across disciplines. As a postdoc, you will be working on Aarhus University Hospital or another hospital in the Central Denmark Region. You can read more about the department here and about the faculty here.
