6666| Imperial College London, Department of Surgery & Cancer - Division of Cancer| Research Associate - Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine & Intensive Care Section| An MRC-funded position is available working in the laboratory of Dr Robert Dickinson. The project will evaluate the neuroprotective efficacy of the inert gas anaesthetic xenon combined with cooling in a rodent model of traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Xenon is a gas that is currently used medically as a general anaesthetic. Our laboratory has been investigating the potential of xenon as a treatment that can prevent or limit the amount of brain damage that occurs after TBI. We have recently shown that xenon, if given within 3 hours of injury, can limit the secondary brain injury and improve outcome in a rodent model of TBI (Critical Care Medicine, 2015, v43 p149-58). Cooling of the brain or the body is already used for some types of brain injury (babies suffering from hypoxia) and in cardiac arrest patients. In this project we will determine whether cooling combined with xenon is more effective than xenon alone.
The overall aim of this work is to develop xenon and cooling as a treatment for TBI patients. Xenon and cooling treatment could be given at the scene of injury, in the ambulance and later in the intensive care unit.

Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent in Neuroscience or related subject and have experience of surgical procedures in rodents.

This post is full time and fixed term for 2 years, and will be based at the South Kensington campus.

Enquiries should be sent to Dr Robert Dickinson r.dickinson@imperial.ac.uk

6683| Postdoctoral Scientist in Bioinformatics, MRC Toxicology Unit, Leicester| Postdoctoral Scientist – Bioinformatics| Postdoctoral Scientist – Bioinformatics
MRC Toxicology Unit, Leicester
Fixed Term for 5 years
Salary £28,935 - £32,648

The Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit, (currently located at the University of Leicester but relocating to the University of Cambridge in 2018), is an internationally renowned institution focussed on the delivery of field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease. We are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and provide a supportive and learning environment helping postdoctoral scientists to establish themselves as successful research scientists in their chosen field.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral scientist/bioinformatician to carry out detailed bioinformatics analysis on large data sets generated from proteomic and transcriptomic studies on localised RNA binding proteins. You will join the post transcriptional control group, led by Professor Anne Willis to work on a project funded by a joint Wellcome Trust Investigator award to Professor Anne Willis and Professor Kathryn Lilley University of Cambridge. The project is entitled “Transcription, Trafficking, Translation: dissecting the spatiotemporal mechanisms underlying localised protein synthesis”.

It is now widely acknowledged that mRNA is spatially organised such that its translation frequently occurs in the vicinity where the corresponding protein product adopts its function. This phenomenon has been studied extensively in specialised cells, however, recent research has suggested that spatial restriction of mRNA storage and translation is much more widespread.

The aims of this project are to define where translation of mRNA takes place in the cell, how this is regulated by protein binding partners and sequence motifs and how this changes upon cellular perturbation.

For more information please visit: http://tox.mrc.ac.uk/research/willis-group/

You should hold (or be in the final stages of completing) a PhD in a relevant discipline with considerable bioinformatics expertise. Significant knowledge and interest in protein synthesis or mRNA binding proteins and their localisation is essential; experience of advanced RNA techniques would be an advantage. Although not required, suitable candidates will be highly encouraged to apply for (inter)national funding in the first year of employment as part of their development towards independence, for which sufficient help is available within the unit.

The following recent publication has direct relevance to this project:
1. A draft map of the mouse pluripotent stem cell spatial proteome. Christoforou et al

6684| Medical Research Council, Toxicology Unit, Leicester| Postdoctoral Scientist – RNA Biology| Postdoctoral Scientist – RNA Biology (x2)
MRC Toxicology Unit, Leicester
Fixed Term for 5 years
Salary £28,935 - £32,648

The Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit, (currently located at the University of Leicester but relocating to the University of Cambridge in 2018), is an internationally renowned institution focussed on the delivery of field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease. We are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and provides a supportive and learning environment helping postdoctoral scientists to establish themselves as successful research scientists in their chosen field.

We are seeking to employ two enthusiastic postdoctoral scientists to join the post transcriptional control group, led by Professor Anne Willis to work on a project funded by a joint Wellcome Trust Investigator award to Professor Anne Willis and Professor Kathryn Lilley University of Cambridge. The project is entitled “Transcription, Trafficking, Translation: dissecting the spatiotemporal mechanisms underlying localised protein synthesis”.

It is now widely acknowledged that mRNA is spatially organised such that its translation frequently occurs in the vicinity where the corresponding protein product adopts its function. This phenomenon has been studied extensively in specialised cells, however, recent research has suggested that spatial restriction of mRNA storage and translation is much more widespread. The aims of this project are to define where translation of mRNA takes place in the cell, how this is regulated by protein binding partners and sequence motifs and how this changes upon cellular perturbation.

The research will focus on investigating the spatial location of RNA binding proteins, their interacting mRNA, their role in protein synthesis control, and how mutations in RNA motifs drive mRNA mislocalisation.

For more information please visit: http://tox.mrc.ac.uk/research/willis-group/

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with considerable experience of molecular and cell biology. You must hold (or to be in the final stages of completing) a PhD in a relevant discipline and have published (or about to publish) in a peer reviewed journal. Significant knowledge and interest in protein synthesis or mRNA binding proteins and their localisation is essential; experience of advanced RNA techniques would be an advantage. Although not required, suitable candidates will be highly encouraged to apply for (inter)national funding in the first year of employment as part of their development towards independence for which sufficient help is available within the unit.

The following recent publication has direct relevance to this project:
1. A draft map of the mouse pluripotent stem cell spatial proteome. Christoforou et al
Nat Commun. 20167:8992.
