Postdoc in Bioimaging, University of Southern Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark


At the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, SDU we are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic researcher, who will work with bioimaging and bioprinting to create 3D cell and tissue models for fundamental biophysical and pharmaceutical studies, to commence 1 September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for an initial duration of two years, with the possibility of extension up to a total duration of at least three years. Application deadline: 21 August 2020.

Research related to this position will be performed in the Advanced Bioimaging group (group leader: Associate Professor Jonathan R. Brewer). The Advanced bioimaging group is internationally renowned and works with applications and development of novel imaging techniques. The Advanced bioimaging group can provide the successful candidate access to multiple state of the art imaging modalities and equipment. The group is specialized in super resolution techniques such as STED, SIM and STORM as well as Multiphoton and Raman based microscopy (CARS and SRS). More information on the instrumentation can be found at here.

The research focus for this position is located at the intersection of bioimaging with advanced bioengineering and biophysics, with an emphasis on utilizing bioimaging to characterize and develop 3D-bioprinted tissue models for skin and making them available for fundamental and applied studies. The selected candidate will be working as a part of an interdisciplinary team involving four dynamic research groups (at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and the University of Copenhagen (UCPH)) under the common leadership of Professor Jonathan Brewer from SDU. Strong ties and interactions with all involved research groups are considered a pre-requisite for realizing viable and functional bioprinted skin models.
