Jauffred Lab

Part of Experimental Biophysics Lab

We use a multitude of imaging modalities, e.g., confocal scanning and light-sheet microscopy, in combination with measurements of force exertion, and in close collaboration with theoretical physicists, as well as biologists and geologists.

Our research topics extend from biofilm formation to cancer spreading patterns, with a focus on the biophysical aspects of intra-cellular interactions and motility and how they regulate evolutionary dynamics, and vice versa.

Joining Exp Biophys Lab as a student

The Niels Bohr institute has many M.Sc. and PhD students. The students are closely attached to the research groups and supervisor and have many social activities for International and Danish students.

If you are interested in studying Biophysics, consider looking at these pages:


Joining Exp Biophys Lab with an external grant

We support researchers' applications to international and Danish public and private funding agencies.

If you come with your own funding, you will become a full member of the team with office space, access to IT and admin support, laboratories, and you are expected to contribute to the scientific and social life in the group. Examples of agencies funding research in biophysics in Denmark are Denmarks Independent Research Fund, Villum Foundation, Carlsberg Foundation and the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

Contact us at least 8 weeks in advance of the application deadline in the case of individual post doc stipends and smaller projects (i.e., 1-3 years, under DKK 3M). And at. least 3 months in advance of the application deadline in the case of larger projects.

The sections's faculty will review your request and assess your need for equipment, to ensure that the Institute can adequately house your project and the expected personnel associated with it.

If approved, we can provide considerable support for the application process, for example including budget development, text about the host institution, review of application's science case, and contact with the funding agency if needed.  The Faculty of Science Research Funding Office at the University of Copenhagen also provides support for applications. 

An application budget is developed online using the University's application tool and must be approved by the group leader and the Niels Bohr Institute at least one month before the application deadline.  The budget process also facilitates the conversation about possible co-financing from the Institute or Center, laboratory set-up if needed, and any HR issues that need to be addressed.

Experimental Biophysics Lab

We have a number of research facilities which we would also like to use for Research collaboration internationally, Industrial collaboration and Student projects.
