3 PhDs in Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network pH and Ion Transport in Pancreatic Cancer

Department of Biology, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering 3 PhD scholarships (commencing 1. September 2019)
in Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Networks on
pH and Ion Transport in Pancreatic Cancer (pHIoniC)

Scientific environment
This pHIonic training network is financed by the European Commission Horizon 2020. The project is a collaboration between 10 academic and 3 industrial partners from 7 European countries. The consortium brings together highly synergistic expertise in the field of ion transport and cancer research.

Our focus is on pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC), which is rising in incidence and is so far incurable. The programme’s central idea is that the unique pancreatic microenvironment contributes to disease development and progression. The programme has a strong grounding in the physiology of acid/base transport in the exocrine pancreas and it develops new concepts and tools in the cancer field and beyond. Jointly, pHioniC will map pH landscape in normal and diseased pancreas, characterize the impact of the acidic microenvironment on PDAC development, and apply drug/nanocarrier/antibody designs for targeting of tumors. For further details of the network, please visit

pHioniC will provide training and collaborative network and structured PhD programme. The training will cover the fields of ion transport, oncology, imaging, bioinformatics and antibody technology, extensive transferable skills and personalized training elements. The Department of Biology team will host 3 PhD students. The three research groups at the Department of Biology have close collaborations and competencies ranging from cell-/physiology, in vitro and in vivo model systems to genetics and bioinformatics.

Project abstractJV_description
Project 1 Role of pH and ATP signaling in normal pancreas and PDAC
The normal function of exocrine pancreas is to secrete bicarbonate-rich fluid necessary for digestion. Our objective is to test the hypothesis that this process leads to acidification of extracellular pH, and together with ATP/purinergic signaling, favors micro-inflammation, epithelial transportome reorganization and PDAC development. Our aim is to resolve the dynamics and spacial resolution of pH changes and find the key proteins that are involved in intra- and intercellular signaling leading to tissue remodellng. Key candidates explored and pharmacologically tested include proton pumps, potassium channels and ATP sensitive purinergic receptors. Techniques employed will include live-cell/organ imaging, cell- and biochemical assays, multicellular organoids and orthotopic cancer models in mice.
Principal supervisor is Prof. Ivana Novak, Section for Cell Biology and Physiology, inovak (at), Phone: +45 353-30275

Project 2 Interactions between microenvironmental acidity and PDAC driver mutations studied in 3D organotypic culture
The objective of the project is to analyze the interplay between acidic conditions and central PDAC mutations in driving PDAC development. The strategy will include: Organoid cultures of mouse normal pancreatic ductal cells will be exposed to (a) environmental acidic stress of varying duration and magnitude and (b) central PDAC driver mutations (inducible KRAS expression, CRISPR/Cas9 KO and mutation of TP53), alone and in combination, followed by in-depth phenotype analyses. Together with the PhD student responsible for Project 3, the student will analyse genotype-phenotype interactions to understand how acidity and mutations interact in PDAC.
Principal supervisor is Prof. Stine F. Pedersen, Section for Cell Biology and Physiology, sfpedersen (at), Phone: +45 353-21546

Project 3 Relation and causality between pH homeostasis and driver mutation generation in PDAC development
We hypothesize that acidic conditions synergize with PDAC mutations to drive PDAC development. An outstanding question is the causality between the two: are PDAC driver mutations more easily generated in an acidic environment, or is their ability to drive PDAC development increased due to the acidity. The experiments will be based on exposing organoid cultures that carry one, two or none of the typical PDAC driver mutations to acid conditions, and then assess changes in RNA response (RNA-seq) and generation of new mutations. This is a collaboration with project 2 above, which will also assess phenotypes in parallel. The position is primarily computational, requiring experience in programming, statistics and bioinformatics.
Principal supervisor is Prof. Albin Sandelin, Section for Computational and RNA Biology, albin (at), Phone: +45 353-21285

Who are we looking for?
Marie Curie Training Networks offer a unique opportunity to get cutting-edge training in a multidisciplinary environment with a focus on academic and personal development of the PhD fellows. The supervisors in the network each provide specific competences and as part of the network you develop your skills and carry out research both independently and as part of a network of 15 PhD fellows. The consortium ensures exchange of ideas through network-wide training events, summer schools and intersectoral secondments. As a PhD fellow in the pHIoniC network, you need to have good social skills, be innovative and goal-oriented and be willing to conduct the planned secondments.

Formal requirements
Applicants should hold, or be close to completing, an MSc degree in Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics or related fields, with relevant preparative training. Excellent command of spoken and written English is required. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications, emphasis will also be laid on previous publications (if any) and relevant work experience.

Job conditions
The PhD student will be appointed under a 3-year employment contract with a competitive salary and mobility allowance at the host institution. The fellow is expected to start on 1. September 2019. The PhD student will be enrolled in the PhD program of the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, with the specific intent that it results in a PhD degree and scientific publications.

Job abstractJV_description
The position is available for a 3-year period. Your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE/pHIoniC network are.
