Full Time
Organization Type

Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research, University of Copenhagen, Mailand Group

Two postdoctoral positions (for a duration of 2 years, with the possibility of extension for up to an additional 2 years) are available in the Ubiquitin Signaling Group headed by Prof. Niels Mailand at Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR -, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR)

CPR was established in 2007 at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, to promote basic and applied discovery research on human proteins of medical relevance. The Center is a strong hub for research on genome stability maintenance and human disease. The scientific environment at CPR, located in central Copenhagen, is highly international, with approx. 30 different nationalities currently represented. The Center comprises modern laboratories and excellent facilities within protein science. Seminars with high-profile international speakers and regular internal research seminars are organized within the Center.

Mailand Laboratory

Research in the Mailand lab aims to understand how ubiquitin, ubiquitin-like modifiers and other post-translational protein modifications orchestrate and regulate cellular responses to DNA damage and replication stress. We combine systems-wide proteomics- and functional genomics-based approaches with methods within cell biology, biochemistry and advanced imaging to identify and functionally characterize signalling responses that protect genome stability in mammalian cells. We offer a vibrant, ambitious and highly international research environment, as well as access to cutting-edge facilities within protein science, including state-of-the-art proteomics and microscopy platforms.
