Associate Professor in molecular mechanisms in muscle metabolism in relation to physical activity

University of Copenhagen
September 14 2016
Position Type
Full Time
The research area is how muscle metabolism is regulated at the molecular level when muscle is subjected to physical activity/muscle contractions and/or changes in cellular energy balance. In addition, the molecular signaling transduction mechanisms in muscle that are responsible for the health effects of physical activity are in focus. In the section of Molecular Physiology research is performed on humans as well as genetically modified rodent and cell culture models because the ambition is to cover molecular physiology from man to molecule.

Applicants should be qualified to perform research as described above. The applicants must have demonstrated a substantial number of publications in internationally well renowned journals within the field of molecular physiology and muscle signal transduction, physical activity and muscle metabolism.

Applicants are required to have university level teaching experience and documented teaching competencies and must be able to explain and reflect upon own teaching practice and portfolio. Formal pedagogical training or supervision equivalent to the University of Copenhagen teacher training program for assistant professors is required.
