The Copenhagen Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme is initiated by the University of Copenhagen in cooperation with the Protein Association and under the guidance of Professor Poul Henningsen, who is one of the country’s leading experts in the field of proteomics. Candidates will be awarded a full postgraduate scholarship (after tax relief) covering the full cost of the training program for up to two years, including room and board.
The International Protein Analysis group at the University of Copenhagen is one of the largest groups in Europe devoted to protein structure and function research. This is a highly competitive field which offers great opportunities for those who like academic work and have an interest in protein engineering. In this process, scientists from different institutions work together to solve problems related to protein structure and function. The main objective is to develop new tools and methods for structural biology that can be used to study human proteins in detail and to identify new drug targets for treatment of various diseases.
