6477| Imperial College London, Department of Molecular Sciences, Institute of Clinical Sciences| Research Associate| A Research Associate position is available in the Cell Interactions and Cancer group, lead by Dr. Simona Parrinello, at the Institute of Clinical Sciences,, Imperial College London. The post, funded by CRUK, is for a period of 3 years, in the first instance, to study mechanisms of glioblastoma (GBM) invasion.

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumour for which there is currently no effective cure. A leading cause of GBM resistance to therapy is the diffuse infiltration of the tumour cells into the brain parenchyma. Emerging evidence suggests that glioma stem-like cells (GSC), the tumour-propagating GBM compartment, might be critical drivers of invasion. Therefore, understanding the contribution of GSC to invasion will significantly increase our understanding of GBM biology and may lead to the identification of novel therapeutic strategies.

The successful candidate will investigate the cell biology of GSC within the infiltrative tumour edge and its microenvironment. To this end, he/she will combine a range of in vivo approaches, including the development of de novo and orthotopic murine GBM models and live imaging of tumour invasion by intravital 2-photon microscopy.

The successful candidate must hold a PhD (or equivalent) in a biological science and have a strong interest in cancer biology. Extensive experience with mouse models and surgical procedures is essential. A proven publication record, with at least one first author publication in a peer-reviewed international journal is also essential. Previous experience with intravital multiphoton microscopy would be a strong advantage. The successful candidate must also have the ability to develop and apply new concepts, have a creative approach to problem solving, and be able to write clearly and succinctly for publication.

The post, funded by Cancer Research UK, provides an exciting opportunity to work as a key member of an interdisciplinary structural biology project involving high resolution electron cryo-microscopy that has the potential to impact actively prescribed cancer therapeutics.

The project involves structural and functional characterisation of protein complexes involved in the complement terminal pathway.

Complement plays an important role in monoclonal antibody (mAb)-based cancer immunotherapy through complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC). One mechanism of tumor clearance is by the deposition of membrane attack complex (MAC) pores on target cells. The effectiveness of CDC remains limited in some cancers due to over expression of CD59, a membrane-bound complement regulator that inhibits MAC-mediated lysis. Broadly the goal of this project is to understand how MAC pores are assembled and regulated in lipid bilayers.

The Centre for Structural Biology is a state-of-the-art electron microscopy facility equipped with two FEG electron microscopes and cutting edge dectectors (4k x 4k CCD and FEI Falcon II direct electron detector). The project will involve regular access to Titan Krios facilities at eBIC (Diamond Light Source, UK) and IGBMC-CERBM (Strasbourg, France).

The post holder will be responsible for carrying out structural studies of key complexes in the complement terminal pathway and will collaborate with Membrane Biophysisists at Imperial College London and Immunologists at the Universities of Southampton and Cardiff .

You must have a PhD (or equivalent) in a structural biology or biochemistry discipline. You must also have Research experience in a structural biological laboratory environment covering either x-ray crystallography and/or Electron microscopy single particle analysis, or advanced knowledge in protein biochemistry and structural biology. Demonstrable capacity for innovative high quality structural biological research is also essential. Knowledge of macromolecular assemblies, experience in reconstituting large multi-protein complexes in lipid membranes, and writing scientific research papers are desirable.

You must have excellent organisation skills and attention to detail. Excellent verbal and written communication skills, and the ability to write clearly and succinctly for publication are essential. You must also be able to relate well with others, form positive relationships with a wide range of people and to work as part of a team, as well as independently. The ability to develop and apply new concepts and have a creative approach to problem-solving are also esstential.

This is a fixed-term position, commencing 7 March 2016, for up to 45 months based at the South Kensington Campus .

6473| Ludwig Maximilians University Munich, Department Biology II| Single cell genomics for cancer evolution| The Challenge

While the evolutionary nature of cancer is well established, it is challenging to generate and analyze data to quantify the dynamics of this Darwinian process. The clinical issue is for example when therapy-resistant cancer cells regrow after an initially successful treatment. Hence, patients die because the tumor is able to evolve. Hematologic neoplasms such as leukemia and lymphoma are well suited to study this process, because live cells can be sampled and studied in detail over the course of the disease. To better understand and eventually influence this process, it is necessary to measure the amount of genetic and epigenetic heterogeneity. New technologies to characterize genetic and phenotypic heterogeneity at the single cell level render it possible to tackle this issue.
