6860| University of Canterbury, New Zealand Institute of Language Brain and Behaviour| Post Doctoral Fellows| New Zealand Institute of Language Brain and Behaviour (NZILBB)

College of Arts

University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand
•Full-time at 37.5 hours per week (1.0 FTE)
•Two fixed-term positions for 2 years and 4 months

The NZILBB is seeking two Postdoctoral Fellows to join the team of researchers working on the "Wordovators" project, which is a project funded by the John Templeton Foundation and the Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Fund. The project conducts large-scale experiments designed to probe the factors underpinning morphological and phonological knowledge. The Postdoctoral Fellows will contribute to two projects in particular. The first project looks at patterns of morphological learning and convergence, the mechanisms though which these occur, and the degree to which they are mediated by social factors. The second project looks at the statistical phonotactic information that listeners infer from passive exposure to a language, in the absence of an active lexicon (with a particular focus on monolingual New Zealand English listeners' phonotactic knowledge of Maori).

Applications are invited from researchers interested in models of productivity, word creation, phonotactics, statistical learning and/or how social factors drive learning and directions of change. The Postdoctoral fellows will collaborate with the research team on devising and running a series of experiments relating to the goals of the overall program.

This project is a collaboration between the University of Canterbury, New Zealand and Oxford University, UK. The Postdoctoral Fellows will be employed by the New Zealand Institute of Language Brain and Behaviour, at the University of Canterbury, and will be primarily supervised by Professor Jen Hay. The other academic members of the research team are Jeanette King, Christoph Bartneck, and Janet Pierrehumbert (Oxford University / Adjunct Professor NZILBB).

The successful applicant will have a PhD in a relevant field, such as linguistics, psychology, or computer science. Applicants with strong technical skills (such as experimental design and implementation skills, scripting and programming, statistical analysis in R, corpus analysis) will be at an advantage. A background in, or demonstrable interest in, the Maori language will also be an advantage, but is not essential.

The University of Canterbury is committed to promoting a world-class learning environment through research and teaching excellence, and has a vision statement of "People Prepared to Make a Difference". You will have the opportunity to work alongside members of a diverse academic community and enrich your own professional and personal development.

We are looking for highly motivated researcher with PhD degree to join our dynamic research group broadly focused on understanding the regulation and function of tumor suppressor Protein Phosphatase 2A (PP2A) in human cancers (

This project is focused on characterization of novel PP2A-dependent mechanisms that potentially mediate synergistic oncogenic activities of RAS activation and PP2A inhibition. We have recently characterized PP2A- and RAS-dependent phosphoproteomes (Kauko et al., Sci. Report, 2015, 5:13099, and unpublished results) and identified several interesting candidate mechanisms that could have widespread ramifications to cancer biology. Also, recent very rapidly accumulating data from others and us indicate that PP2A reactivation may open entirely new perspectives for treatment of cancer patients with otherwise dismal prognosis.

6842| Earlham Institute| Postdoctoral Scientist| To adapt to desert, mammals developed different phenotypes to cope with the lack of water or food paucity associated to such environment. For example, some rodents have evolved to increase the water retention capacities of their kidneys, others show a decrease of the general metabolism activity helping to cope with food shortage and high temperature often associated to such environment. Despite the different studies at the physiologic level, little is known about the molecular and evolutionary mechanism of adaptation to desert environment. We are undertaking a large population genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic analysis to identify the genes and regulatory networks underpinning these traits in multiple rodent species.

We are currently seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated Postdoctoral Scientist that will combine comparative and population genomic approaches to study the evolutionary and molecular mechanisms of mammalian adaption to desert. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing computational methods and analysing primary genomic resources, in order to identify and study genomics signatures of environmental adaptation. The post holder will work in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment. The successful applicant will interact with other group members and external collaborators such as the Sanger Institute or the European Bioinformatics Institute, and with peoples coming from a variety of backgrounds, to include; Experimental Biologists, Field Ecologists and Computational Biologists.

To be considered for this post you will hold a PhD in Evolutionary Biology, Population Genomic or Computational biology. You already have experience with genomic data analysis (genomics/Transcriptomics/epigenomics) in population genomics, molecular evolution or gene expression regulation. The successful candidate will also have extensive knowledge in R and other script languages such as Perl or Python, be autonomous, organised and collaborative and also possess strong problem solving skills.
