7288| UCD| UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 2, UCD School of Medicine (Temporary)| Applications are invited for a Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 2 in the UCD School of Medicine.Chronic lung diseases including emphysema, account for over 20% of deaths in Ireland, the highest rate in Western Europe. The precise mechanisms associated with progression of emphysema are not known, however it is now thought to start with the loss of blood vessels in the lung. Erythropoietin (Epo) has recently been shown to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels in several other organs suggesting that this might also occur in the lung. Concurrent treatment with Epo prevented the development of emphysema in rodents, therefore we propose to investigate whether Epo can restore new vessels and tissue in adult lungs, and whether this could be developed to potentially treat debilitating diseases such as emphysema. This proposed project will investigate this hypothesis using transgenic animal models, Epo mimetic drug testing and primary cell-culture models taken from human subjects with emphysema and other related lung diseases. See Job Description for more details.Salary: €39,155 - €42,630 per annum Appointment on the above range will be dependent on qualifications and experienceClosing Date: 17:00hrs (Local Irish Time) Monday 5th June 2017.Applications must be submitted by the closing date and time specified.

7290| Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Institute of Mechanical Engineering| Post-doctoral position in unsteady fluid dynamics| The unsteady flow diagnostics laboratory (UNFoLD) at the Swiss federal institute of technology of Lausanne (EPFL) invites applications by highly motivated candidates with an outstanding PhD degree for a post-doctoral position in the field of unsteady fluid dynamics. Our lab focusses on the investigation of unsteady flow phenomena by combining high spatially and temporally resolved flow field measurements with - what we refer to as - a fluid dynamical differential diagnosis. We develop methodologies to help bridge the gap between our observations and understanding of the development and interaction of characteristic flow structures (e.g. vortices) and technically relevant quantities, such as aerodynamic forces or power output, with applications in biological and bio-inspired flight, wind turbine rotor blade aerodynamics, etc. Within the SNSF funded project ’Dynamic stall management for improving aerodynamic robustness of H-type wind turbines’ (smart-H), the prospective post-doctoral researcher will focus on reducing the empiricism of existing dynamic stall models and providing adaptations or extensions for improved prediction of the aerodynamic response of airfoils and wind turbines to internal and external disturbances based on experimental data. Candidates should hold a PhD degree in a topic of relevance. We are seeking candidates with a combined theoretical and experimental background in unsteady fluid dynamics. The intended duration of the project and the offered position is two years. To apply, please send your application, including cv, motivation statement, and names and contact information of three references as a single pdf file to [email protected] If you do not receive a reply within 2 weeks, please assume that your profile does not match with our interests at the moment.
