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
For general information, please visit our website http://www.unige.ch/sciences/chifi/sugiharalab/. If you would like to apply, please send an application including (1) Motivation letter, (2) Your complete CV, (3) Full contact information of two professional references with phone and email.

The GibsonGroup has developed these mimics for cell cryopreservation and regenerative medicine; Nat. Commun, 2014, 5, 3244 and Angew. Chem., 2016, 55, 2801 – 2804.

The successful applicant will join the large research team to undertake the purification and biochemical characterisation of recombinant AFPs and design de novo antifreeze proteins and conjugates. Applicants should possess, or be expected to shortly obtain a PhD in biochemistry, protein biomaterials, structural biology or a related field. You must have expertise in protein purification and characterisation, as well as experience in molecular biology techniques for protein engineering. Chemistry experience would be a benefit but is not essential.

The GibsonGroup is extremely well equipped for this research, spread across the Department of Chemistry and Warwick Medical School with our main laboratories in the new £24M Materials and Analytical Sciences building. We have dedicated synthetic, analytical, tissue culture and microbiology laboratories alongside world-class analytical infrastructure including 850 MHz solid state NMR, 700 MHz solution state NMR, MALDI MS etc. From 2016 the group will open a new microbiology laboratory within the Medical School, where this work will take place, with all facilities necessary for protein expression. Work in the GibsonGroup is interdisciplinary with ~ 20 members including synthetic chemists and cell biologists working in parallel.

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.
