6227| The Hospital for Sick Children, Developmental and Stem Cell Biology Department| Postdoctoral Fellow in Early Embryo Development| Dedicated exclusively to children and their families, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is one of the largest and most respected paediatric healthcare centres in the world. As innovators in child health, we lead and partner to improve the health of children through the integration of healthcare, leading-edge research and education. SickKids is committed to ongoing learning and development, and features a caring and supportive work environment that combines exceptionally high standards of practice.

We are currently seeking outstanding young scientists to join our research group as a Postdoctoral Fellow; focusing on stem cells and early embryo development. Our research involved understanding early mammalian development, leading to improved human pluripotent and totipotent stem cell derivation and differentiation. This work can then translate into improved reproductive technologies, and novel stem cell-derived therapies for human disease.

We are currently offer two highly connected research projects:

1. Project #1 Analyzing the role of physical forces in early embryo
The study of biophysical interactions in development is a vital component of understanding blastocyst morphogenesis. We will combine FRET-based molecular tension sensors with manipulation of tensile forces in embryos and isolated blastomeres to study the dynamics of physical forces during morphogenesis. The effects of mechanical forces on the outputs of the signaling pathways known to be important in lineage development will be analyzed.

2. Project #2. Exploring the relationship between zygotic genome activation and pluripotency
Zygotic genome activation at the 2-cell stage precedes and is required for the later activation of the lineage specifiers of the pluripotent and trophectoderm fate. Two-cell blastomeres are fully totipotent but later cells show progressive restriction of cell fate. We will explore this relationship at the detailed single cell molecular level and use the information to explore the possibility of stably maintaining a totipotent stem cell state. 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.

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
• Experience in any relevant model organism considered Prior first author publications are highly desirable.
• Must be self-motivated, well-organized, highly independent, and willing collaborate with other researchers.
• Excellent communication, written and interpersonal skills are mandatory.

the shape, constituents, and dynamics of the open data ecosystem
experiences, opportunities, challenges and barriers related to open data adoption
economic, social and environmental impacts of open data

With the support of a digital producer, the role will be as much about conducting and commissioning the research as it will be about communicating it.

With a masters degree or higher in a social science discipline (or equivalent professional experience in an academic or commercial research environment) you must be able to demonstrate exceptional knowledge and experience of research design and methodology. Strong written and oral communication skills will also be essential for success in this role, as will a passion for understanding complex systems and synthesising large amounts of information.

The ODI is a vibrant, fascinating, and (most importantly) great fun place to work. We do everything we can collaboratively and in the open which is both exhilarating and challenging. The combination of a small team, global focus, and incredible breadth of opportunity make for a uniquely stimulating environment.

As a model organism it exhibits several odd molecular processes. Our objectives are to decipher molecular mechanisms to stand different modes of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in Leishmania. The post-doctoral research project aims to identify and study the repertoire of non coding RNAs (ncRNAs) involved in the control of gene expression and that may be critical for the parasite adaptation to the hosts. The work will include highthroughput RNA sequencing and analysis, identification of trans-regulators, networking of proteins and RNAs and functional studies by reverse genetics.

The primary focus of the group is to determine how tumour and stromal ¬cells sense, interpret and respond to their extracellular microenvironment in cancer. We are particularly interested in how adhesion and growth factor receptor signalling and trafficking are integrated to drive cancer progression. You will aim to delineate the molecular mechanisms that promote breast cancer invasion and cellular responses to molecular therapeutics. You will employ novel proteomic strategies to define the dynamic signalling networks recruited to pro-invasive integrins, syndecans and receptor tyrosine kinases in breast cancer cells. Using these findings, you will use a range of live-cell, organotypic and in vivo imaging techniques to determine the impact of key regulatory mechanisms on the cellular processes that drive invasion. You should have a PhD in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, cancer biology or other relevant field with experience of cellular and/or molecular experimental techniques. Experience in proteomics, live-cell confocal microscopy or models of cancer invasion is desirable. The post is available for 3 years.
