A 3-year PhD position is available in the section for Protein Science & Biotherapeutics at the Department of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (DTU Bioengineering).

The successful applicant will work within the research group 'Protease Network Degradomics' headed by Professor Ulrich auf dem Keller.In our research group, we apply and develop advanced positional proteomics workflows to identify proteases, elucidate their interactions and determine their substrates in inflammation, repair and regeneration. With a major focus on the skin, we aim at elucidating interdependent proteolytic pathways and their disturbance in disease to provide a basis for the development of novel strategies for diagnostics and therapeutic intervention. The newly recruited PhD student will work with a team of postdocs and PhD students and in close collaboration with the DTU Proteomics Core the PhD student will to identify and characterize proteolytic signatures as markers of wound progression by degradomics analyses of clinical wound exudates from patients with normal and impaired healing.
