5710| The Medical Research Council, The MRC Toxicology Unit| Postdoctoral Scientist-| Postdoctoral Scientist – IRC159033
Fixed Term for 3 Years
Salary from £28,648 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 training.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic postdoctoral scientist to join the Gain of Function of Mutant p53 group, led by Dr Patrica Muller, to work on projects investigating the role of mutant p53 in chemo-resistance and invasion of cancer cells. It is expected that this will lead to publications in high impact journals. More information on the role of p53 mutations in cancer can be found in the following review: www.nature.com/ncb/journal/v15/n1/full/ncb2641.html

Mutations in the p53 gene can lead to the expression of a mutant p53 protein. This mutant protein has lost the tumour-protective p53 wild type function and has gained novel functions in promoting tumorigenesis. These functions comprise increased chemoresistance, enhanced motility and invasion and increased proliferation. Copper is required for invasion and can change the sensitivity of cells to chemotoxic drugs. In this project we will determine the intracellular mechanisms that are responsible for this and we will determine the role of copper in invasion and chemoresistance of mutant p53 tumours.

This is a Postdoctoral Training Scientist position providing training and development supporting post-doctoral scientist in early or changed career paths helping establish them as successful research scientists in their chosen field. During the fellowship tenure we are committed to provide mentorship for career development and improvement of communication skills.
Candidates should have significant knowledge of cell biology and oncology and an interest in working on the molecular mechanisms leading to chemo-resistance and/or invasion. Experience in cell culture techniques, transfections, biochemistry approaches, cloning, in vitro assays and cell toxicity assays is required. Knowledge in RNA work and protein work is desirable.

Although not required, suitable candidates will be highly encouraged to apply for (inter)national funding in the first year of employment as part of their independent career training for which sufficient help is available within the unit.

*Allowances include a £1,000 lump sum Settlement payment plus an annual training allowance of £850 in the first year increasing to £1,300 in year two, and £1,800 in the third and final years (paid monthly but not consolidated for pension purposes).

Directorate of Science and Technology, Liverpool

About the Role:
We seek an all-round oceanographer, with experience of working with hydrographic data and/or models. Examples of desirable skills on the observational side are calibration, quality control, analysis and interpretation of oceanographic data. Experience with turbulence measurement and interpretation would be an advantage. On the modelling side, desirable skills are an ability to configure and run experiments with ocean circulation models and analysis of large model output.

You will use a large set of hydrographic and turbulence variables collected during the observational part of the project (two fieldwork campaigns in 2014 and 2015) to investigate the impact of deep ocean thermal sources on ocean currents, and heat and tracer transport and mixing. You will also use a high-resolution ocean circulation model (HYCOM) to simulate abyssal circulations in the Panama Basin, which are greatly influenced by hydrothermal/geothermal fluxes. You will be encouraged to participate in the OSCAR cruises, if appointed in time, and to interact with project partners in NOC-Southampton, University of Durham, University College London, University of Oxford, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and GEOMAR throughout the duration of the project.

This is a 3-year Fixed Term Appointment position offered on NERC terms and conditions including a UK SBS pension scheme, 30 days annual leave with a further 10.5 public/privilege days.

Salary Range: £26,715 - £30,000 per annum

About You:
You will have experience in observational and/or numerical oceanography, a PhD in physical oceanography (or equivalent research experience), a first or 2: I degree in a numerate physical, environmental science or mathematics discipline and be skilled at data analysis.

5698| University of Glasgow, College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine| Research Associate in equine disease| Research Associate
Ref: 009300
Salary: Grade 7 £33,242 - £37,394 per annum

We are inviting applications for a Research Associate to make a leading contribution to the investigation of equine disease using multicentre electronic medical record analysis. Specifically, the post holder will conduct, manage and publish research on the epidemiology of equine disease using data mining and statistical modelling techniques. This position is funded by the Animal Welfare Foundation.

Multicentre clinical research provides information that can immediately be applied to improving health and welfare. However, the vast majority of equine clinical research involves a single centre or small number of cases, limiting the power of the study and applicability of significant findings. Multicentre studies provide larger, more representative samples of horses to be investigated but are limited by the costs and organisational difficulties associated with data collection. Electronic medical record (EMR) systems document the diagnosis, treatment and outcome of horses in an accessible format. In human medicine, EMR research has led to significant advances in our understanding of disease. The successful applicant will develop and apply data mining and machine learning techniques to a multicentre EMR database to investigate diseases affecting the health and welfare of the horse.

Applicants should possess a PhD or equivalent research experience in bioinformatics, epidemiology, health sciences, computer science, statistics, or other relevant subject area.

Informal enquiries regarding this position can be directed to Dr John Marshall (John.F.Marshall@glasgow.ac.uk).

This post is funded for 2 years in the first instance.

5721| Queen Mary University, Centre for Neuroscince and Trauma| Postdoctoral Research Assistant X 2| Applications are invited for two positions of Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the newly established Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence led by Prof Silvia Marino and based at the Blizard Institute. The centre will focus on the study of the epigenetic regulation of cancer stem cells isolated from human high grade gliomas as compared to normal neural stem cells. The program of work is a collaboration with the groups of Prof Denise Sheer also at the Blizard and of Prof Sebastian Brandner at the UCL Institute of Neurology.
We seek highly motivated postdoctoral researchers with a strong interest in the biology of normal and neoplastic stem cells and in the potential application of the latter to design novel specifically tailored therapeutic approaches for brain tumours. They should be molecular or cellular biologists with experience in cancer biology, and have an excellent understanding of oncogenic pathways involved in brain tumour pathogenesis and stem cell biology. Experience in stem cell culture and/or knowledge of advanced tissue imaging and genomic analysis of tissues are highly desirable and some experience in basic bioinformatics would be beneficial.
The posts are based in the Blizard Institute, Whitechapel Campus. The Blizard Institute is the largest institute of Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry and aims to deliver excellence in all aspects of research, teaching and clinical service. A significant proportion of the work will be carried out in a dedicated human tissue culture facility at UCL Institute of Neurology and flexible work at joint sites is essential.
These are full-time fixed term posts for 3 years, with a starting salary at the appropriate point for experience on the research grade 4 scale, £31,735 – £34, 383 per annum inclusive of London allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
