(211-0046/18-2H) PhD fellow in Molecular Physiology

PhD fellow in Molecular Physiology
Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports
Faculty of Science
University of Copenhagen

Department of Nutrition, Exercise, and Sports, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in Molecular Physiology commencing 1 December 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Description of the scientific environment.
The molecular physiology section focuses on how regulation of energy metabolism influences health and prevents development of disease. We focus on the interaction between physical activity, exercise training and nutrition. It is well known that regular physical activity and nutrition is important for maintaining health yet the underlying molecular mechanisms are not known but likely include regulation of energy metabolism particularly in muscle as well as cross-talk between muscle and other organs. We research from "molecule to man" including techniques of molecular biology, transgenic organisms and human beings.

Project abstractJV_description
This PhD project will elucidate the molecular mechanisms that drive cancer cachexia and determine the effects of exercise training to prevent cachexia and other cancer-related muscle dysfunctions. Methods used will be comprehensive, ranging from transgenic rodents to human studies, combined with state-of-the-art biochemistry, mass spectrometry, and molecular biology. Specifically this Phd project will i) elucidate the effect of exercise on insulin resistance and mitochondrial dysfunction in cancer cachexia, and ii) determine the role of AMPK in cachexia.

Principal supervisor is Professor, MD, Erik Arne Richter and co-supervisor is Assistant Professor, Phd lykke Sylow, Department of Nutrition, Exercise, and Sports, Erichter (at), Direct Phone: 28751626 or LSHansen (at)
