Medical Research Council, Toxicology Unit|
MRC Postdoctoral Scientist|
MRC Postdoctoral Scientist Medical Research Council -Toxicology Unit, LeicesterSalary range: £30,162 - £31,099 per annum plus allowances*Fixed term for three years (funded by BBSRC)We are looking to appoint a postdoctoral scientist specialising in RNA biology and biochemical techniques 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. Using a variety of biochemical approaches you will investigate the role of the helicases in miRNA-repression, the goal being to reconstitute the repressive hub and determine the role of the helicases in this process using an array of RNA-Seq experiments and molecular biology approaches.You will have been awarded (or in the final stages of obtaining) a PhD in biological sciences, have experience in RNA-Seq methodologies, cloning, western blotting, qPCR and immunoprecipitation. Experience of mammalian tissue culture, in vitro RNA synthesis, and bioinformatics would be an advantage. You 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.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.Choosing to come to work at the MRC means that you will have access to a whole host of benefits from a final salary pension scheme and excellent holiday entitlement to access to employee shopping/travel discounts and salary sacrifice cycle to work scheme and childcare vouchers, as well as the chance to put the MRC on your CV in the future.For full details of this post and to complete an online application, visit https://mrc.tal.net/vx/lang-en-GB/appcentre-1/candidate/postings/480 and upload your CV along with a covering letter. Please quote reference TOX 439.Closing date for applications: 28 February 2017The MRC is an Equal Opportunities Employer. Final appointments will be subject to pre-employment screening.The MRC Toxicology Unit is a member of Athena Swan.* For those who have only recently completed their doctoral studies (or who may be more experienced and moving into a new research discipline or with limited experience of key transferable skills) you will be given the choice upon appointment of undertaking the MRC Post-Doctoral Training Scheme which provides you with personal allowances of £1,000 initial settlement plus an annual training allowance of £850 increasing to £1,300 in year two, and £1,800 in the third year.

Maynooth University, Departmant of Electronic Engineering|
Post Doctoral Researcher in the optical design of Confocal Raman Spectroscopy and Digital Holographic Microscopy systems for biomedical applications|
The RoleMaynooth University has a vacancy for a three-year postdoctoral position for a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist, with experience in building and designing optical systems, who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.Light is playing an increasing role in medicine and recent advances in optical spectroscopy offer the possibility to detect cancer cells earlier, thereby improving patient outcome. The present project sits at the interface between opto-electronics, Raman micro-spectroscopy, 3D microscopy, and medicine and aims at combining the latest advances of each field in order to develop and validate a novel and less invasive diagnostic tool for the early detection of bladder and prostate cancer, as well as other related diseases. The candidate will be in charge of designing, implementing, and validating the optical platform that for analysing cell line models as well as patient samples. He/she will benefit from a multidisciplinary environment offered by the hosting groups, strengthened by a close collaboration with a local hospital. The team includes experts on multivariate statistics, opto-electronics, biology, and medicine.The ProjectIn this project we will develop laser based diagnostics tools to non-invasively detect bladder cancer from urine samples, as well to improve the sensitivity of the Pap Smear for the screening of precancerous cervical lesions. The technology has already been demonstrated to be more accurate that standard pathology, but current designs are slow and suffer from reproducibility issues. In this project we will build and test new designs that offer the potential for high throughput screening of patient samples. An interdisciplinary team, including engineers, mathematicians, and medical consultants will work to build and test these systems using patient samples. Raman micro-spectroscopy is a powerful technique for the identification, classification, and diagnosis of cancer cells and tissues. In recent years, the application to diagnose bladder, cervical, and oral cytological samples has been reported to have an accuracy that is significantly greater than standard pathology. However, despite being entirely non-invasive and relatively inexpensive, the slow recording time, and lack of reproducibility, have prevented the integration of the technology into the pathology laboratory. The aim of this project is to design, build, and test two distinct Raman micro-spectroscopy systems that are optimised to classify carcinoma cells. The proposed systems will be high speed (Principal Duties The successful candidate will be involved in two projects, both of which are based on Raman micro-spectroscopy and digital holographic microscopy; any experience in designing or building such systems will be an advantage. The first project relates to high speed automated Raman microscopy for seamless integration into the hospital pathology laboratory for applications in cytology. The second project also includes holographic optical tweezers for the analysis of living cells under various conditions. We are also hoping to build a Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy system during the project and any experience with CARS systems would also be an advantage.
