8474| University of Manchester, Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute| Postdoctoral Scientist – Prostate Oncobiology| We are looking for a highly-motivated Postdoctoral Scientist to join Dr Baena’s Prostate Oncobiology group to study the role of inflammation on prostate tumour initiation and how to prevent their progression to metastatic prostate cancer.Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second leading cause of cancer-related mortality in men worldwide, accounting for 15% of all male cancer deaths. PCa patients exhibit a high heterogeneity both clinically and biologically highly variable clinical behaviour; some have indolent disease whilst in others it is lethal. Although the initial response to androgen deprivation therapy is almost universal, progression to castration resistant state is inevitable and lethal. Previous work from our laboratory shows the importance of further understanding molecular events leading to castration-resistant prostate cancer as they’re key for the development of improved therapies for such patients (Barros-Silva et al., 2018; Parry et al., 2019; Baena et al., 2013). Thus, the post holder will work on defining the modification on tumour microenvironment (TME) driven by tumour-stem cell to promote castration-resistant stage. This study will provide new avenues to prevent prostate tumour progression and metastasis by combining anti-tumour and anti-TME (e.g. immune) interventions for prostate cancer patients.About you:You will have a PhD in a relevant related subject and have research laboratory experience. You will also have profound knowledge in cellular and molecular biology and have experience of working with in vivo cancer models. You will have significant experience of cell culture, particularly in vitro 3D culture systems and handling primary cells.

However, the required technologies, even when available, are currently too fragmented to be integrated into routine, affordable and streamlined solutions that can benefit a large number of patients. The challenge thereby is to deliver 3D printing technologies that enable:Patient-specific solutions: personalized medical devices that are designed using the images acquired for individual patients and best fit their treatment needs;Complexity and miniaturization: complex shapes, articulations and miniaturized geometries of orthotics/prosthetics and instruments have the potential to radically enhance treatment effectiveness and post-treatment recovery;Streamlined care: the ability to integrate diagnosis, design and manufacturing of AM medical devices into a validated software platform is the key to delivering fast, affordable treatments with dramatic life-saving potential.The INTERREG project 3DMed aims to improve affordability and large-scale accessibility of medical treatment using 3D printed devices. This will be achieved by increasing the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of state-of-the-art 3D printing technologies for medical applications and integrating them into a streamlined, fast, cost-effective software platform for use in routine clinical practice. This project contains 17 partners from The Netherlands, Belgium, France and United Kingdom, including universities, hospitals, software suppliers, 3D printing companies, clinical observers, manufacturers of medical devices and implants,... The project is coordinated by TUDelft.In this Postdoctoral position, it is the purpose to develop patient-specific design and finite element modelling of 3D printed orthoses and prostheses (an orthosis is an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system, while a prosthesis an artificial device replaces a missing body part). This position requires an in-depth knowledge of advanced design, finite element modelling and topology optimization, based on the processing and segmentation of patient-specific medical images. Important criteria that will be investigated, are: (i) stress limits for a fatigue-safe design (under multi-axial loading); (ii) critical stress concentrations due to certain geometrical discontinuities; (iii) stiffness match (or mismatch) with surrounding body parts; (iv) thermal behaviour of the part at body temperature. Different orthoses and prostheses will be covered and a close collaboration will be required with the researchers at TUDelft, clinical observers, AM service providers and software companies.Only candidates with a PhD degree or equivalent experience should apply. The candidate should have a strong background in design and FE modelling for medical applications. He/she will closely work together with the other postdoc in the team (see other vacancy) and is willing to travel frequently to meet and discuss with the other project partners in the neighbouring countries.More information can be found on:http://www.composites.ugent.be/PhD_job_vacancies_PhD_job_positions_composites.html

8499| Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Department of Vector Biology| Post-Doctoral Research Associate| Founded in 1898 and the oldest of its kind in the world, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for teaching and research in tropical diseases. Through the creation of effective links with governments, NGOs, private organisations and global institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, LSTM aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.The Department of Vector Biology at LSTM is an international leader in the study of insect disease vector biology, and at the forefront in developing novel strategies for vector control, particularly the management of insecticide resistance. Vector Biology Department has recently established a research group based at the Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Programme (MLW) in Blantyre, Malawi. The purpose of the group is to encourage new developments in vector research related to the monitoring and control of vector-borne diseases. Led by Christopher Jones, the group has acquired funding to modify and apply a quantitative model – previously developed for tracking midge-borne infections in Europe – to determine the influence of wind patterns on mosquito movement and malaria infection. The research team is currently recruiting for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to implement a field study to quantify mosquito dispersal and contribute to the development of the model for the mosquito-malaria system. This is an interesting opportunity for a highly motivated and experienced entomologist/biologist with interest in ecological modelling to join a large and diverse team of Vector Biologists with an extensive network of collaborators. To apply, you must hold a PhD in Biology and/or Ecology or related science with a strong quantitative component and possess excellent knowledge of conducting scientific literature searches and using R-cran statistical software.
