Fully Funded PhD scholarship in Bioinformatics at Denmark Technical University - DTU

Call for applications:

If you hold a master's degree in bioengineering or related field, then this post is for you.

DTU Bioengineering seeks a qualified candidate for a fully funded 3-year PhD position within Bioinformatics Based Mapping of N-Glycosylation of Proteins in Archaea. The PhD project is part of a Marie Sklodowska-Curie doctoral training Program, GLYCO-N, funded by the EU (MSCA Doctoral Network).

The PhD project is thus part of a bigger interdisciplinary research effort that aims to 1) Understand the diversity and structural complexity of archaeal, microalgal and viral N-glycosylation and 2) Harness this knowledge for new solutions in biomedicine and biotechnology.


Responsibilities and qualifications

The PhD project is expected to break new ground at the absolute forefront of enzyme bioinformatics and discovery research. Apart from being part of a unique International and Interdisciplinary research training program, the PhD project is at the core of DTU’s efforts of pioneering the use of advanced digitalization methods to map, discover, and predict the function of new enzymes to provide new fundamental knowledge and pave the way for new innovative applications.

Experience with genome and protein sequence analysis, bioinformatics, and Python programming, preferably within enzyme biotechnology is required. Practical experience with carbohydrate processing enzymes and/or SQL is a major advantage.


Application procedure:

Your complete online application must be submitted no later than 31 May 2024 (23:59 Danish time).

Applications must be submitted as one PDF file containing all materials to be given consideration. To apply, please open the link "Apply now", fill out the online application form, and attach all your materials in English in one PDF file. The file must include:
