Welcome to the Kaj Ulrik Linderstrøm-Lang Centre for Protein Science

At the Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, we have established the Linderstrøm-Lang Centre for Protein Science to carry on in the tradition of Kaj Ulrik Linderstrøm-Lang and to address some of the questions which after 60 years are still left fundamentally unanswered:

  • How do proteins attain their functionality? 
  • What role does dynamics play in protein function and how is this interplay comprehensively described and predicted? 
  • How do cells regulate the life cycle of a protein from synthesis to degradation?
  • Can we use this knowledge to design new enzymes with new activities?

The questions are addressed by applying sophisticated methods through projects spanning the realms of fundamental and applied science.






We are always happy to receive applications from potential postdocs, PhD, Masters, and Bachelor students, and we welcome applications from both Denmark and abroad. If you are interested in joining the lab or just want to know more about our work, find the relevant scientific staff member and contact us by phone or email – or stop by one of the labs in the Biocenter (see map here).

See currently open positions here.

Postdoc positions

Open positions are advertised broadly in the relevant media.

In addition, chances of obtaining postdoc grants are quite good when applying with Danish and/or international foundations. If you are interested in applying contact the scientific staff member that you would like to work.

PhD projects

The University of Copenhagen offers studentships for students holding a Danish or foreign Masters degree. In addition, possibilities exist to apply for funding from private foundations. Phd students are accepted into the PhD school at the Faculty of Science and become part of the PhD program in Protein Science

Masters and Bachelor students projects

We always offer both Masters and Bachelor projects within our different areas of research. For more information and a list of current projects in the University of Copenhagen project database here.

For all types of positions, please contact the staff to discuss specific projects.
