7359| University of Kansas, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology| Postdoctoral researcher in population modelling| Dr Daniel Reuman is recruiting into his lab in the University of Kansas Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB). At least 3 years of funding are available to carry out modelling pertaining to spatial population dynamics and analysis of large spatial population data sets. The postdoc will join an interdisciplinary team consisting of Reuman, three postdocs and one student currently in the Reuman lab, collaborators in EEB and in the Math Department at KU, and collaborators at several institutions in the USA and UK. Funding is from the NSF Mathematical Biology program and the James S McDonnell Foundation. In many hierarchical dynamical systems, “synchrony” between multiple fluctuating variables, i.e. correlations or other similarities in fluctuations between variables through time, is more important than the individual variables themselves. For instance, a neuron may fire only when its input neurons fire synchronously. Or the electrical grid may crash only when demands of multiple users become synchronized, producing total-usage spikes. Ecosystems can show this type of dependency on synchrony. Ecosystems include multiple trophic levels, with population signals from lower levels often being spatially aggregated to affect higher levels. For instance, a predator is only harmed if its prey are scarce over its whole hunting area. For systems of this type, it is primarily the synchronous components of signals that matter in the average signal that affects the next level – non-synchronous components tend to cancel in the spatial average. Thus synchrony is very important to ecosystems. Synchrony is found in organisms as diverse as mammals and protists, at distances up to thousands of kilometers. Synchrony relates to large-scale outbreaks and shortages and is important in conservation. In spite of the importance of synchrony in ecology, possible impacts of climate change on synchrony are little studied. Synchrony can also be transmitted through trophic interactions - e.g., a synchronized predator can induce synchrony in its prey. But the extent to which climate-induced changes in synchrony may cascade through species interaction networks via this mechanism, or influence spatial or other branches of ecology, is unknown. The postdoc will perform statistical and/or mathematical population modelling to address these questions, and will investigate connections to extinction risk models and to Taylor’s law, a commonly applied empirical regularity in spatial ecology. The postdoc will be encouraged to develop his/her own projects within the goals of the funding grants.We seek individuals from biological or physical-science backgrounds with skills and demonstrable interests in modelling and related areas. Experience with stochastic process modelling and Fourier or wavelet approaches is a plus. Experience with population models is a plus, as are computational skills, particularly if applied in a statistical or modelling context. A PhD or ABD in a related field is required. Applicants from underrepresented groups are encouraged. The University of Kansas (KU) is a major research university with special strength in ecology and evolutionary biology. The EEB department has >40 permanent faculty working in a wide variety of theoretical and empirical areas, with National Research Council and Chronicle of Higher Education rankings in the top 10 in the USA. KU is located in Lawrence, Kansas, about 30 miles from Kansas City. Lawrence is a progressive and cosmopolitan university town with vibrant art, music, and sports scenes that has been ranked among the top ten college towns in the country for liveability.See http://www.reumanlab.res.ku.edu/ for further information about the Reuman lab and links to past publications.

7380| The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, Tumour Suppressors Group| Postdoctoral Scientist in Tumour Suppressors Group| We are currently looking for a Postdoctoral Scientist within the Tumour Suppressors Group. In this group we aim to understand the role of p53 and mutations in p53 in small cell lung cancer and the interplay with other tumour suppressors. We are particularly interested in which mutations correlate with worse outcome and to what extent p53 mutations contribute to chemoresistance and the aggressiveness of this disease. Previously, we discovered a role for mutant p53 in regulating rab coupling protein (RCP) recycling of integrins and growth factor receptors in invasion and metastasis. Preliminary data in the lab indicates that not only integrins and growth factor receptors are regulated, but also drug transporters. This would make RCP an interesting drug target to prevent metastasis and to make tumours more sensitive to current chemotherapeutics. The post holder will investigate the role of RCP in small cell lung cancer by checking expression levels in patient samples, mutation status and the role of RCP in chemoresistance of small cell lung cancer primary tumour cells. They will characterize the interaction between RCP and drug transporters and work together with a small company to investigate the potential of small molecule inhibitors to prevent RCP from binding to those drug transporters. Any potential candidate molecules will be tested in a variety of cell lines, primary tumour samples and in xenograft in vivo experiments.The successful applicant should have a PhD in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Medial Biology, Oncology, or a related field. Experience in cell culture, cell signalling pathways and molecular biology is essential. Whilst experience with primary cell lines and in vivo modelling is not required, it is desirable.For any informal enquiries about this post, please contact Dr Patricia Muller via email: [email protected] The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (www.cruk.manchester.ac.uk), an Institute of The University of Manchester (www.manchester.ac.uk), is a world-leading centre for excellence in cancer research.

We are adjacent to The Christie NHS Foundation Trust (www.christie.nhs.uk), one of the largest cancer treatment centres in Europe. These factors combine to provide an exceptional environment in which to pursue basic, translational and clinical research programmes.Our aim is to understand the fundamental basis of cancer and apply that knowledge to developing new treatment strategies for cancer patients. Our advanced research programmes span a spectrum of cancer research, from the molecular and cellular basis of cancer through to drug discovery, translational research and clinical trials.
