Research assistant for developmental- and molecular biology project

Region Hovedstaden

Ph.d. & forskning

We are looking for a highly dedicated research assistant to carry out a 2-year project at Department of Growth and Reproduction, Rigshospitalet – starting from 1st February 2020 or soon hereafter.

The position:
Department of Growth and Reproduction is a hospital unit with an outpatient clinic as well as multidisciplinary research facilities. We are approximately 100 employees that work with endocrine diseases like growth and pubertal disorders, male infertility, testicular cancer and development of the reproductive system.

The candidate we are looking for will mainly be involved in a Horizon 2020 funded project that aims to characterise human gonadal development. The focus of the project is to characterise signalling pathways involved in gonadal sex differentiation using our established human ex vivo culture models. We are therefore looking for a candidate with experience in ex vivo and/or organoid culture and gene knock-down approaches in primary cells or tissue. Additionally, experience with tissue handling, xenografting, immunohistochemistry/ immunofluorescence or scRNAseq would be an advantage.

It is our hope that this 2-year position can be extended to a full PhD-project. The planned 2-year project is fully funded and will be performed at Rigshospitalet, but the scientific team includes international collaborators and research visit(s) abroad is to be expected.

We are looking for a talented MD or MSc with a background in human biology, molecular biomedicine or molecular biology. It is an advantage if you have experience with research and have authored a scientific publication. We expect that you are ambitious, enthusiastic, hard-working and that you work efficiently both independent and as part of a team.

The application should include:

  • Letter of motivation
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Recommendations and contact information for references
  • BSC, MSC or MD diploma along with grades
