6803| Imperial College London, Department of Chemistry| Research Associate in Nanoscale Charge Transport and Thermoelectrics| We are seeking a high-quality synthetic (inorganic/organic) chemist to be involved in the Quantum-Interference Enhanced Thermoelectrics (QUIET) project. The latter is a joint project between the Albrecht, Cohen and Long Groups at Imperial College and the Lambert Group at Lancaster University. It aims at the synthesis and characterisation of new molecules and their thermoelectric properties, as well as their theoretical description, at the single- and many-molecule levels. Particular focus is on molecules towards the electric and thermal transport measurements using (electrochemical) Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy (STM) in graphene-based nanojunctions.
6786| The Hospital For Sick Children, M5G0A4| Postdoctoral Fellow in Early Embryo Development| The laboratory of Dr. Janet Rossant is currently seeking outstanding young scientists to join our research group as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The Rossant lab has a long history of investigating the mechanism of cell fate decisions in the early mouse embryo and their application to the maintenance and differentiation of embryo-derived stem cells. Our current research combines tools of molecular genetics, live imaging, proteomics and single cells expression analysis to explore the fundamental aspects of lineage development.

Utilizing various embryo derived stem cell types we hope to gain a better understanding of normal embryo development and how this applies to human pluripotent and the totipotent cell state. This work can then translate into improved reproductive technologies, and novel stem cell-derived therapies for human disease. We are also applying our developmental knowledge to the differentiations of human iPS cells into cell types suitable for exploring new aspects of regenerative medicine.

A postdoctoral project in our research group will involve utilizing various molecular and imaging tools to study early embryo development. Specifically we are looking for individuals interested in studies of polarity, patterning and/or morphogenesis of the developing embryo. These studies include but are not limited to; analyzing the role of biophysical interactions by manipulation of tensile forces in the embryo and isolation of blastomeres to study the dynamics of physical forces during morphogenesis.

Another potential avenue of research involves exploring the relationship between zygotic genome activation and pluripotency. We will explore the relationship between zygotic genome activation at the 2-cell stage and later activation of the lineage specifiers of the pluripotent and trophectoderm fate. We will use high content cell-based screens in ES cells with small molecule inhibitor or activator libraries targeting pathways identified by our studies of ZGA regulation and early lineage activation.

Other projects around these areas of research are also welcome.

Applicant Criteria:
• PhD with previous postgraduate training in cell biology, molecular biology, bioengineering, systems biology or a closely related field.
• Prior experience with stem cells, development, molecular genetics and/or bioinformatics would be an asset.

6769| University of Geneva, Department of Physical Chemistry| The fundamental mechanism of mechanosensitive polymer activation by peptides| Postdoc/PhD Positions in Physical Chemistry/ Biophysics

In the Department of Physical Chemistry, University of Geneva, Switzerland, we have an opening for postdoc/PhD positions in the area of physical chemistry/biophysics.

Project description
Cell membranes are the first cell component that experiences signals from the outer world. Forces applied on the cell membranes, among other signals such as ligand binding or light, are the key activator for many processes. However, to date there is no direct way to measure the local molecular forces applied to the lipid bilayer membranes quantitatively. In this project, we study local forces that peptides apply to lipid bilayers by incorporating a mechanochromic polymer, polydiacetylene, within the hydrophobic tails of the lipid bilayers as a force sensor. Polydiacetylene emits fluorescence when external forces altered the conformation of the polymer. It is known to react upon peptide binding, but its fundamental activation mechanism is not known. The project aims to combine fluorescence microscopy, atomic microscopy, electron microscopy, and different spectroscopy techniques to clarify how peptides apply forces to the polymer for its activation.

Prerequisites are masters or diploma (or PhD in case of postdoc) in fields such as physics, physical chemistry and material science. Highly-motivated young scientists who are interested in pursuing a research career would be encouraged to apply. Starting date is flexible. The selection procedure starts as soon as we received qualified candidates till the position is filled.

6805| University Medical Center Groningen, The European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing ERIBA| Postdocs in single cell computational genomics, epigenomics and transcriptomics| Postdocs in single cell computational genomics, epigenomics and transcriptomics

The European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA)
University Medical Center Groningen

The European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA) is a newly established institute at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG). The central theme at the ERIBA is the molecular mechanism of (cellular) ageing. We aim to identify physiological and molecular changes that can explain the loss of cells and functional decline of cells and tissues with age. For this, we make use of state of the art technology and a variety of model organisms. Furthermore, we heavily invest in Systems Biology to integrate our findings in the various mechanisms of ageing that have been proposed. The ERIBA is housed in a brand new building and part of the central UMCG campus in central Groningen, a small (200,000 inhabitants) but vibrant city (with over 25,000 students) in the north of the Netherlands.

Job description
Many important questions in biology require measurements of small cell numbers, or even single cells. This is the case, for example, in studies of early embryogenesis, in the analysis of rare cell types, or in the analysis of very heterogeneous samples such as malignant tumors. In the last few years new technologies have emerged that enable genome-wide measurements of both the genome, the epigenome and the transcriptome of small number of cells and even single cells. Single-cell sequencing allows studies of the DNA of an individual cell, while Strand-Seq permits the sequencing of the template strands from a single cell. At the epigenomic level, the measurement of genome-wide DNA methylation is possible for a single cell with single cell bisulfite sequencing (sc-BS-seq), while the measurement of the genome-wide localization of different histone modifications is now possible for a few hundred cells using chromatin immunoprecipitation followed by sequencing (ChIP-seq). Finally, single cell transcriptomics allows for the sequencing of the RNA of a single cell, and single cell sequencing and single cell bisulfite sequencing can be combined with single cell RNA sequencing in the same cell.
The two postdoc positions will be hosted at the Quantitative Epigenetics group, lead by Dr. Maria Colome-Tatche. Dr. Colome-Tatche has a double appointment between the ERIBA and the Institute of Computational Biology at the Helmholz Zentrum München (Germany). The postdoc applicants will integrate the research team of Dr. Colome-Tatche at ERIBA and will contribute to the building of a collaboration between ERIBA and the Helmholtz Zentrum München.
During the postdoc project you will work in the development of algorithms and pipelines for the analysis of single cell genomic data (SNP calling, copy number variation calling), single cell Strand-seq data (sister chromatid exchange calling, correlation with single cell gene expression), single cell and low input epigenomic data (sc-BS-seq, low input ChIP-seq) and bulk sequencing data (whole genome sequencing, whole genome BS-seq, ChIP-seq).
