The overall goal of the lab is to gain molecular level understanding of mechanisms that underlie the development metabolic disorders such as coronary artery disease. We employ a wide-array of next-generation sequencing methods (scRNA-Seq, GRO-Seq, TRAPSeq, bulk RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq) to study disease-associated gene regulatory mechanisms in cellular (primary human cells) and mouse models of disease. During the PhD project, the researcher will develop wetlab (e.g. cell culture, qPCR, (sc)RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, CRISPR-screening, functional cell culture assays, immunohistochemistry, etc.) and computational skills (e.g. analysis of high-throughput sequencing data), providing the candidate an excellent skillset for a future interdisciplinary career either in academia or industry.

A person to be appointed as an early stage researcher shall be qualified to pursue postgraduate studies, i.e. he or she is required to have completed a suitable higher university degree or an equivalent education abroad which in the country in question would qualify the person for similar academic studies.
