6714| University College Cork, Department of Physiology| Post-Doctoral Researcher- CRISPR Cas9 editing of CFTR spilce mutations| The three deep intronic splice mutations which cause cystic fibrosis represent a potential theratype which can be rescued by CRISPR gene editing. The three mutations are found in more than 1,600 patients, and cause the mis-splicing of CFTR which results in the aberrant incorporation of either a in-frame pseudoexon or an out-of-frame extension at the 5’ end of an existing exon. The aim of this project is to optimize and vectorize the Cas9/gRNAs validated in our lab for this deep-intron theratype, and confirm their ability to functionally restore CFTR function in primary cells from patients with these mutations in readiness for pre-clinical evaluation.

The successful applicant will work alongside an experienced post-doc funded by Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (USA) and a new PhD student funded by Cystic Fibrosis Trust (UK). The ideal candidate will have considerable expertise in standard molecular biology techniques and mammalian cell culture; experience of CRISPR Cas9 editing and/or lentiviral vectors is desirable but not essential.

6694| University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences| Post Doctoral Fellowship(s) ‘Deciphering the link between adhesion and pluripotency"| The Danish Stem Cell Center (http://danstem.ku.dk/) is seeking one or two postdoctoral fellow(s) to join the Brickman Lab/DanStem & Michael Lund Nielsen Lab/Centre for Protein Research (CPR)

The post-doctoral positions will initially be supported by a grant from the Lundbeck Foundation and seek to probe the link between pluripotency and cell-cell adhesion. They will follow up recent observations on that focus the gene regulatory network (GRN) sustaining pluripotency on adhesion. The first project, based in the Brickman lab, will follow up the means by which the GRN regulates adhesion and the second, in the Nielsen lab, will focus on deciphering the nature of the adherns junction complex in pluripotent vs differentiating cells

Project description

Embryonic Stem Cells (ESCs) are genetically normal, immortal cell lines with the capacity to become any cell type in the future organism. This project will explore the role of cell-cell adhesion supporting a pluripotent state, both in vivo and in vitro. We recently found that the evolutionarily conserved gene rergulatory network (GRN) downstream of one of the central pluripotency regulators, Oct4, was primarily concerned with regulating cell-cell adhesion (Livigni et al Curr Biol. 2013). Moreover, we found that force expression of E-cadherin could partially block differentiation in response to reduced Oct4 levels in both ESCs and embryos. These projecst will follow up these observations on at a transcriptional and post-transcriptional level, using a combination of genetic models and mass spectrophotometry.

Qualifications

• Candidates should have experience in embryonic stem cells, developmental biology (mouse and Xenopus) or mass spectrophotometry

• Must be eligible for and prepared to write fellowship applications with in 12 months of being in the laboratory

6719| Medical Research Council, Toxicology Unit| PostDoctoral Scientist - Bioinformatics| 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 specialising in bioinformatics and sequencing methods to join the MicroRNA Regulation of Gene Expression Group led by Prof. Martin Bushell to work on a project to determine the mechanism by which microRNAs control gene-expression.

MicroRNAs have emerged as a major mechanism of gene regulation in metazoans, controlling the expression of approximately 60% of all protein encoding genes. These non-coding RNA molecules are ~21 nucleotides in length and exert their activity by base-pairing with specific mRNAs (normally within the 3'UTR) inhibiting gene expression at the post-transcriptional level.
Since their discovery, numerous studies have documented the fundamental roles of these small RNA molecules in virtually all aspects of life and disease. However, the mechanisms by which these molecules function to repress gene-expression has remained unclear and controversial.
The aims of this project are to resolve and understand the mechanistic heart of the miRNA-repression apparatus, to finally understand how repression is achieved.

You will use a variety of next generation sequencing and advanced bioinformatics approach to investigate how these helicase exert control over gene-expression.

The successful candidate will have been awarded (or in the final stages of obtaining) a PhD in biological sciences, have experience of working with RNA, cloning, tissue culture, western blotting, qPCR, immunofluorescence, microRNA methods and immunoprecipitation. Experience of deep-sequencing and advanced bioinformatics skills would be advantageous. Applicants will be committed to working at a highly competitive level, able to communicate scientific ideas effectively and have published (or about to publish) in a peer-reviewed journal.

6716| Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases - LBI-RUD| POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW in Immunology or Genetics| The Boztug Lab at LBI-RUD, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases in Vienna, seeks to fill the open full-time position of a

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW in Immunology or Genetics

The focus of the group is on the identification of rare monogenic disorders of the immune system and hematopoiesis to explain pathophysiological manifestations in humans (Boztug K at al Nature Genet 2014, Willmann K et al Nature Commun 2014, Dobbs K et al New Engl J Med 2015). In the context of this work, the Boztug group applies a combination of state-of-the-art genetic and genomic technologies including next generation sequencing, and a wide range of cellular and molecular techniques to elucidate novel pathways important for immune system homeostasis.
The group works in a fully equipped molecular biology laboratory in a shared environment with cell culture, multi-color flow cytometry as well as all equipment needed for state-of-the-art genomic investigations such as SNP arrays and deep sequencing, which are immediately accessible in-house.

We are looking for a highly motivated and well-organized Postdoctoral Fellow to join one of the following projects:

Project 1: Deciphering the molecular basis of autoimmunity and autoinflammation
Due to their heterogeneity and prevalence, autoimmune diseases pose a major health problem to modern societies. We have recently identified several novel disease-causing genes in patients with model autoimmune disorders such as early-onset IBD (Glocker*, Kotlarz*, Boztug* et al NEJM 2009; Salzer et al JACI 2014) and early-onset SLE-like diseases (Salzer*, Santos-Valente* et al Blood 2013). This exciting project aims at identifying novel genes within a patient cohort of genetically undiagnosed autoimmune disorders by a variety of biochemical, immunological and imaging technologies to obtain molecular gene-to-phenotype relationships.

Project 2: Identifying and understanding novel types of combined immunodeficiency
Combined immunodeficiencies (CIDs) comprise a large proportion of primary immunodeficiencies. Recently our group has significantly contributed to the field by discovery and detailed molecular description of novel types of CID affecting NF-B signaling and cellular motility, respectively (Willmann*, Klaver* et al Nature Commun 2014; Dobbs*, Dominguez-Conde* et al New Engl J Med 2015), however to date many CID etiologies still remain undefined, precluding precise treatment recommendations. The proposed project aims to identify novel genes using NGS technology to discover additional cellular pathways underlying CIDs on an ever-growing cohort of patient samples present in the lab.

Project 3: Dissecting molecular pathomechanisms of PIDs using small molecule screens
The translational value of research on PIDs lies in the ability to develop mechanism-based tailored treatment options often hindered by lack of knowledge about molecular pathways underlying the disease. The candidate will develop hypothesis-driven early drug discovery research for few carefully selected PID targets by performing genetic and small molecule screens using the state-of-the-art haploid cell and chemical screening platforms combined with a comprehensive drug library, all available in-house (in collaboration with CeMM PI Stefan Kubicek; e.g. Winter et al Nature Chem Biol 2014; Jae et al Science 2014).

Requirements and desired qualifications:
The successful candidate is a proactive and independent thinker with a strong background in one or more of the following disciplines: Immunology, Genetics, Medicine or Molecular Biology, and holds a PhD (respectively DVM/MD or equivalent) degree. The ideal candidate will have an excellent work ethic and very good communication skills. Enthusiasm, self-motivation, creativity as well as a proactive approach to solving problems and developing new ideas are highly desirable. We are looking for a candidate who is able to connect different scientific disciplines and think outside the box. The candidate should have at least one first author paper in a high impact factor journal (IF>10).

We offer:
• a challenging position in a meaningful, inspiring, international setting
• an excellent work climate and the possibility to join our social activities
• a competitive salary: This position is remunerated according to FWF personnel costs (http://www.fwf.ac.at/en/research-funding/personnel-costs)

The Institute:
The newly founded Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases (LBI-RUD) is directed by Kaan Boztug, a world-leading expert in primary immunodeficiency research, and is situated in a beautiful, bright, and perfectly designed building with outstanding design and state-of-the-art laboratories and technology platforms that is strategically located next to one of the world’s largest university hospitals in the heart of the city. The institute is deeply integrated with its renowned partner institutions, namely the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the Medical University of Vienna, and the Children’s Cancer Research Institute of the St. Anna Children’s Hospital, and, therefore perfectly situated to benefit from strong translational research long established by leading-edge research groups.
