6763| Catholic University of Louvain, Medinbio| Bio-screening and development of eco-innovative products for disease and pest control in agriculture/horticulture| Agriculture and horticulture have to deal with parasite pressure, which can be a very costly issue. Disease control relies on various agricultural approaches, at the forefront of which is the use of chemical pesticides. In this respect, European regulations are aiming to reduce the use of inputs or even to remove many pesticides from the market.

In the last few years, biological control agents of bacterial or fungal origin have been studied with great interest for their effects on numerous diseases. Many scientific studies have demonstrated the part played by these control agents or their biomolecules in the management of certain diseases. They seem to be a potential solution for the management of crops requiring few inputs/organic crops or crops requiring many inputs in combination with chemical pesticides. This category of molecules would also be easily approved by international regulations, which are becoming increasingly strict.

Plenty of microorganism collections exist all over the world; these are recorded in the World Federation of Culture Collections (WFCC). The valorization of these collections by screening for their biocontrol properties is only slightly considered. Therefore these collections represent unique resources to explore and find new biomolecules/bio-effectors.

Among these international collections, the fungi collection of the Catholic University of Louvain is the fourth biggest global collection of filamentous fungi, yeast and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). It consists of 30,000 living organisms including some strains which are potentially bioactive against main pathogens.

Main target: Development of an eco-innovative product based on the fixation and the selective release of beneficial microorganisms and/or microbial filtrate/mash with a biostimulant action on beneficial microorganisms and which can act as a bio-fungicide on pathogens. This product will allow the replacement of current products or the reduction of their dose or their application frequency.

To reach this target, this study will be divided into 4 parts:

1. Development and validation of a quick screening method of fungal organisms and isolation of their effective microbial filtrate/mash in the control of telluric/aerial pathogens (WP1)

Material: Four main pathogens of potato will be considered like proof of concept:
i. Fungus Rhizoctonia solani
ii. Bacteria Ralstonia solanacearum
iii. Oomycete Phytophthora infestans
iv. Nematode Globodera rostochiensis

v. One AMF

vi. A collection of beneficial telluric fungi

Analyses:
i. Confrontation tests


2. Bio-encapsulation of microbial filtrate/mash with biofungicide activity on telluric/aerial pathogen and biostimulant activity on beneficial microorganisms (i.e. arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi-AMF) (WP2).

a. Bio-compatibility of bio-fungicidal molecules and beneficial microorganisms
b. Bio-stimulation on the growth and root colonization of AMF

3. Determination of mechanisms involved in the bio-compatibility/bio-stimulation of AMF

4. Impact on the severity of diseases in controlled conditions and in situ (WP4)

For this position, the knowledge of French is an asset and the knowledge of English is essential.
6759| Medical Research Council, Toxicology Unit| Postdoctoral Scientist in Neurodegeneration| Postdoctoral Scientist in Neurodegeneration
MRC Toxicology Unit, Leicester
Fixed Term for 3 Years
Salary £28,935 to £29,863 per annum plus allowances*

The Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit, located at the University of Leicester, is an internationally renowned institution delivering field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease. The Unit is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and offers excellent opportunities for postdoctoral development. The Unit is expected to relocate to the University of Cambridge during 2019.

We are looking to appoint a Postdoctoral Scientist to join the Synpatic Toxicity group led by Dr Joern Steinert. The research of the group is focussed on the role of nitric oxide (NO)-mediated signalling in neuronal physiology and toxicity in neurodegenerative conditions. For more information see http://tox.mrc.ac.uk/research/steinert-group/

NO-mediated neurotoxicity can be induced by various different pathways in several neurodegenerative diseases, however, its exact contribution to neuronal death remains elusive due to the great complexity of downstream nitrergic targets. The key aim of this project will be to identify target proteins subjected to nitrergic regulation, in particular post-translational modification such as protein S-Nitrosylation and nitrotyrosination will be investigated. We will focus on proteins involved in the conserved exocytosis machinery required for neurotransmitter release and key questions will be addressed by using electrophysiology in combination with biochemical, molecular and immunocytochemical methods in model systems such as Drosophila and mouse.

You will have been awarded (or in the final stages of obtaining) a PhD in a relevant discipline and have experience in biochemical techniques and neuroscience or synaptic signalling. Experience of cell culture and /or drosophila work and electrophysiological methods would be a distinct advantage. You must be committed to working at a highly competitive level, be able to communicate scientific ideas effectively and have published in a peer-reviewed journal.

This is a three year training and development position, upon appointment you will get the choice of undertaking a Career Development Fellowship or the MRC Postdoctoral Training Scheme. We support postdoctoral scientists in these positions with a range of formal and on-the-job training to ensure you receive the training relevant to your role and identify additional training to help support your future career.

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.

Qualifications
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.

How to apply
