Vacant positions as PhD-students at Alk-abello, Copenhagen Center for Glycomics (CCG), Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine and Glycosection, Department of Environmental and Plant Biology, University of Copenhagen
A number of cross-disciplinary PhD-student positions are available through a joint initiative of leading researchers at the University of Copenhagen and the pharmaceutical company ALK. The positions address the potential use of engineered carbohydrate structures for targeting therapeutically relevant (glyco)proteins of various origin to Antigen Presenting immune Cells (APCs).
Some of the positions involve engineering of expression platforms, which range from mammalian to plant cells including downstream purification and full structural characterisation, while other positions aim to develop extensive immunological screens/readouts in vitro, as well as in mammalian models.
The candidates are expected to have required a MSc degree (or equivalent) in a relevant field and to have experience within at least two of the listed areas
- Protein Expression and purification
- Mass spectrometry (glyco-proteomics applications)
- Genetic cell engineering (stable ZFN/Talen cell engineering)
- Plant molecular genetics and/or biochemistry
- Microarray technology (glycan arrays and carbohydrate/peptide chemistry)
- Cell culture expertise
- Basic immunology techniques
- Flow cytometry
- Experimental animals, preferentially rodents.
CCG is a centre of excellence funded by University of Copenhagen and the Danish National Research Foundation dedicated to study of functions of complex carbohydrates in medicine. CCG is located at Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine hosts seven professors with complementary expertise, 25 postdocs and PhD students, technicians and graduate students http://glycomics.ku.dk/.
Our common research focus is the role of glycosylation in disease and biomedical applications. Our overriding aim is to decipher specific molecular mechanisms for diseases of glycosylation and to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic measures.
CCG uses state-of-the-art mass spectrometry, genetic engineering (ZFN/Talens) and recombinant expression platforms, and microarrays in our approach in addition to comprehensive enzyme and antibody libraries. To strengthen these activities we now seek candidates with specific expertise in one or more of the indicated areas.
The Glycosection, Department of Environmental and Plant Biology, studies biosynthesis, evolution, and industrial utilization of plant cell walls and glycoproteins. The section is equipped with state of the art infrastructure for plant glyco and protein biology including state-of-the-art carbohydrate microarray facilities.
Focus areas include elucidation of protein glycosylation machineries in plants, glyco engineering of plant/yeast cells with focus on targeted ZFN/Talen mediated genome editing for compatible or immunogenic (to man) type glycosylation, expression, enzymatic and structural characterization of (glyco)proteins of therapeutic interest.

ALK is a global research-driven pharmaceutical company that focuses on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of allergies. ALK has since 1923 been working to improve the quality of life for allergy patients by developing drugs that target the cause of allergy. ALK is the world leader in allergy immunotherapy – a unique treatment of the cause of allergies.
The treatment induces a protective immune response that provides a sustained reduction of allergy symptoms and reduces the risk of developing asthma. ALK invests annually approx. 20% of revenue in research that aims to develop new, evidence-based allergy immunotherapy. The research activities include basic research within allergen chemistry and immune responses to allergens as well as applied and translational research to describe the mechanisms involved in successful immunotherapy and biomarker of effect.
ALK has a long-time tradition for allergen characterization with state of the art immunochemistry techniques, Mass spec, crystallography etc. Immunological mechanisms have been characterized in detail in various in vivo models of allergic rhinitis and asthma as well as in in vitro culture systems with allergen-specific T-cell lines and clones, regulatory T-cells, APC´s such as dendritic cells and basophils.
Finally competition between antibody isotypes and the interaction between allergen-specific antibodies and immune cells have been a major part of ALK biomarker research in recent years. ALK have contributed significantly to these scientific area through publications and presentations in international fora.
