We are seeking a programmer / software engineer to join our project researching stereoscopic (3D) vision in the praying mantis.A key duty will be to write code to generate visual stimuli for the behavioural and electrophysiological experiments. For consistency with other work in the lab, this will be in Matlab, using Psychophysics Toolbox and an in-house toolbox for behavioural experiments. You will write code to analyse, plot and interpret collected behavioural and electrophysiological data, helping group members to understand and build computational models of praying mantis behaviour.You will assist with other computational / programming needs around the lab as required, including developing experiment and data analysis code for student projects, supporting students in analysing and interpreting their results, and providing technical assistance with software-related issues. You will develop reusable code to automate repetitive data processing and analysis tasks, building on and extending our in-house toolbox where appropriate.Behavioural experiments involve the collection of data in various formats including videos of praying mantis responses to stimuli. You will develop algorithms to compute responses and other behavioural parameters from these videos, for example deciding whether the mantis made a tracking head movement to left or right, whether it made a strike, and extracting parameters such as the duration and range of the strike.You will participate on writing up experiments for publication as scientific papers, either as co-author or lead author depending on interest/experience/ability. The role also offers the opportunity for computational neuroscience research, developing quantitative models of mantis stereoscopic vision.

Postdoctoral Training Fellow|
The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes, with an outstanding record of achievement dating back more than 100 years. We provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease. Today, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) leads the world at isolating cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment.Under the leadership of our Chief Executive, Professor Paul Workman FRS, the ICR is ranked as the UK’s leading academic research centre. Together with our partner The Royal Marsden, we are rated in the top four cancer centres globally.The ICR is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.A vacancy exists in the Radiotherapy Physics Modelling Research group of The Joint Department of Physics for a Postdoctoral Training Fellow to perform research on the development and validation of automated MRI-based treatment planning.We are seeking an accomplished and driven enthusiastic physicist/engineer or computer scientist with a strong background in computational methods and software development.

EmployerBioMed X Innovation Center, Im Neuenheimer Feld 515, 69120 Heidelberg, GermanyAbout BioMed XThe BioMed X Innovation Center is an exciting new collaboration model at the interface between academia and industry. At our center, distinguished early career scientists recruited from all over the world are working jointly on novel pre-clinical research projects in the fields of biomedicine, molecular biology, cell biology, diagnostics, and consumer care. These interdisciplinary project teams are conducting groundbreaking biomedical research in an open innovation lab facility on the campus of the University of Heidelberg, Germany. They are working under the guidance of experienced mentors from academia and industry while expanding their scientific network and receiving entrepreneurship and leadership training.Each BioMed X project team is sponsored by an industry partner: The sponsor of this call for application is Janssen Research & Development.What we are looking forApplications are welcome from early career scientists with an outstanding track record in the field of:Rapid Identification of Auto-Antigens in Autoimmune DiseasesJanssen Research & Development is seeking new platform technologies or concepts which lead to identification of antigens recognized by T cells involved in autoimmune responses.Proposed experimental approaches should include the development and validation of novel antigen screening platforms that can rapidly decode the specificities of autoreactive T cells from patient samples. Ideally, the identified T cell epitopes should link back to relevant tissue-specific proteins that are targeted in disease. Screening approaches may incorporate a combination of in vitro, in vivo and in silico (bioinformatics) methods. As part of the project, the novel approach should be validated in a disease context of organ-specific autoimmune diseases, including but not limited to rheumatoid arthritis (RA), type 1 diabetes (T1D), multiple sclerosis (MS), or psoriasis. Validation in context of deciphering novel tumor T cell epitopes in immune-oncology may also be considered, however the approach should be exclusive of simply identifying mutated neo-epitopes and related screening strategies. Proposals building on very original ideas supported by first experimental findings are particularly encouraged.Group leader positions are intended to suit candidates with typically between four and eight years of postdoctoral experience who would like to develop themselves towards a leadership career path either in academia or industry. What we offerThe posts are offered for an initial term of two years, with the possibility of prolongation for up to two additional years, and an option for a permanent position.As part of the research group in the above-mentioned field the posts include a generous funding package covering salaries, consumables, services, travels, as well as access to the core facilities of neighboring research institutions and biotechnology companies in Heidelberg.There is flexibility over starting dates, but successful applicants are welcome to take up post starting April 1, 2018.Application & Selection ProcessApplications are to be made online at apply.bio.mx.Only applications received before December 10, 2017 will be considered. As part of the online application procedure candidates will be required to enter detailed information about their previous work and submit a competitive project proposal.After a first selection round, candidates will be invited to a five-day innovation boot camp in Heidelberg. The invitation includes full coverage of travel expenses, accommodation, sightseeing, and food for the entire workshop which will take place from February 23 to 27, 2018. With guidance of experienced mentors, candidates will jointly work on their project proposals and present them in front of a jury on the final day.
