  1. Project description

Nanomedicines have been proven to be beneficial in diagnosis and therapy. In vivo imaging studies with the help of labeled structures are crucial to develop new nanomedicinal based drugs. In this project, we will develop a new imaging method based on bioorthogonal chemistry. The tetrazine ligation will be used to establish a so called pretargeted imaging approach that will be applied to blood-brain-barrier (BBB) permeable antibodies. A set of tetrazines will be synthesized and evaluated in respect to reaction kinetics, ADME properties, BBB permeability and metabolism. Most promising compounds will be radiolabeled with fluorine-18 and subsequently evaluated in an in vivo system that will be developed within our MC-ITN-ETN network. The project is mainly organic chemistry focused and spiced up with radioactive work. BBB permeable antibodies will be provided from a small-medium sized enterprise, BioArctic, Sweden. In vivo evaluation studies will mainly be carried out at the Werner Siemens Imaging Center, Tuebingen, Germany. A 3 month stay abroad at both partners is requested.

Principal supervisor is Associate Professor, Matthias Herth, Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, E-mail: matthias.herth@sund.ku.dk, Direct Phone: +45 93565414.

  1. Project description

Pretargeted imaging displays a novel possibility to image targets with monoclonal antibodies (mAb) with improved imaging contrast and lower radiation dose. The tetrazine ligation is one of the most promising bioorthogonal reaction for pretargeted strategies. In this project, a blood-brain-barrier (BBB) permeable antibody will be functionalized selectively with trans-cyclooctene (TCO) functional groups. These TCO groups will enable the selective binding of radiolabeled tetrazines to the mAb in vivo via pretargeted chemistry. Tetrazines will be developed by PhD fellows within our MC-ITN-ETN network and blood-brain-barrier (BBB) permeable antibodies will be provided by H. Lundbeck A/S, Denmark. In particular, this project is focused on novel strategic ideas to increase the amount of TCOs per mAb without disturbing the biological integrity of the mAb. Organic chemistry, ADME studies and biopharmaceutical chemistry techniques are the basis of this project. In vivo evaluation studies will mainly be carried out at the Uppsala University, Sweden and mAb conjugation chemistry at H. Lundbeck A/S, Denmark. Minimum 3 month stay at both partners is requested.

PhD Scholarship in Creativity and Business Model Innovation, Aalborg University, Denmark

At the Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Business and Management, a position as PhD fellow within the topic “Creativity and Business Model Innovation” is open for appointment from 1 September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Job description
The aim of the PhD project is to contribute to our knowledge on the role of creativity in business model innovation processes. Organisations and entrepreneurs need to develop and redesign their business models due to internal and external pressures such as disruptive competitors, policy changes and globalisation in general. Current research has primarily focused on how to be creative in regards to technology, product, production and service developments. However, creativity in relating to business model design of new ventures or an existing organisation is a relatively new area. Being creative in regards to business models is a complex matter that seems to involve a large number of variables.

In particular, this PhD project should aim at enhancing existing knowledge with new theoretical insights, new methods and new practices in relation to business model innovation that is based on creativity, creative thinking and for example gamification. The ambition is to assist organizations, businesses and entrepreneurs in performing business model innovation in systematic and successful manners.

The project should take a process perspective in the intersection between creativity, business model design and innovation. Hereby it will contribute to the areas of business model design and business model innovation and the relationship between creativity and innovation. It is expected that the research during this PhD is empirically investigated and that China and DK/Nordic Countries/EU form the basis for the empirics.

The project will be situated in an already established research environment consisting of researchers at Aalborg University, Denmark, and University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS), China, and affiliated colleagues in China interested in creativity, innovation and business models.

PhD Scholarship in Political Science and Public Management, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

The Copenhagen Business School invites applications for a three-year position as a funded PhD scholar. The position is associated with the new Rewards at the Top project, which is hosted at the Department of Business and Politics of the Copenhagen Business School.

Politicians’ remuneration is a key element in the implicit contract between politicians and the people. The project is studying how people are willing to reward politicians, by how much they are willing to reward, which rewards politicians themselves prefer, and what rewards politicians get in practice. Thus the project’s main objective is to gain an understanding of the preferences of both the population and politicians for politicians’ remuneration, as well as what drives these preferences, and a more nuanced understanding of both the positive and negative rewards linked to being a politician. Such an understanding may be relevant to future debates about the extent to which and how we should remunerate our politicians – a question that is central to democratic political thinking.

The project will commence on February 1 2017. Professor Lene Holm Pedersen is the PI of the project. Please consult the project and work package presentation here in preparing proposals. You may also consult the web-site of the project. The PhD scholarship will be within the work package on preferences for rewards at the top (WPI). We are looking for candidates with strong analytical and methodological skills as well as an interest and experience in Political Science and Public Management. Knowledge of elite studies is an advantage, but not absolutely necessary. The position requires a candidate able and eager to engage and apply quantitative methods. We use survey methods and a discrete choice experimental approach, which is widely used within a wide range of scientific fields but has only recently been introduced to the field of political science. Advanced competence in these specific methods is not required but strong quantitative skills in general are necessary. In preparing a research proposal, candidates should demonstrate their ability to contribute to and enrich the principal components of the research project, as well as intellectual independence.

To fulfil the research requirements of the position, the successful candidate is expected to be physically present on a regular basis and actively participate in the research activities of the Department of Business and Politics. The three-year PhD programme at CBS allows PhD students to conduct research under the supervision of CBS professors, supported by research training courses usually organized through the Doctoral School of Organisation and Management Studies (OMS). The programme is highly international, and the successful candidate will be expected to participate in international research conferences and to spend time abroad as a visiting PhD student. See the CBS homepage for more information about thePhD programme.

CBS PhD graduates are held in high esteem not only in academia and research institutions but also in government and business where their research qualifications are increasingly demanded. One third of CBS PhD graduates go on to employment outside universities and public research institutions.

Copenhagen Business School has a broad commitment to the excellence, distinctiveness and relevance of its teaching and research programmes. Candidates who wish to join us should demonstrate enthusiasm for working in an organisation of this type (highlighting, for example, relevant business, educational and dissemination activities).
