7498| University of Edinburgh, The Roslin Institute| Research Fellow| Vacancy Ref: 041081 We are looking to recruit an ambitious and motivated postdoctoral research fellow on a 5y position to investigate microglial and neuroinflammatory mechanisms underlying susceptibility and resilience to neurodegenerative disease and dementia. The PDRF will join the McColl neuroimmune biology lab within the recently formed UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) at the University of Edinburgh (https://ukdri.ac.uk/centres/edinburgh). The UK DRI will lead the UK’s dementia research effort to deliver a step-change in the understanding and treatment of dementia-causing disease and should provide a highly stimulating, interactive and cross-disciplinary environment for research. The successful candidate will use a range of in vivo, cellular and molecular approaches (including transcriptomics) to advance understanding of how microglia and neuroimmune mechanisms contribute to neurodegenerative disease. Key guiding questions include (i) what are the consequences of microglial diversity for disease susceptibility and resilience? (ii) what mechanisms, intrinsic and non-cell autonomous, govern helpful and harmful microglial activity? (iii) can resilience mechanisms be augmented to prevent or delay disease progression? Prior experience working with in vivo models of neurodegenerative disease and complementary skills in techniques such as behavioural analysis, cell isolation/phenotyping and molecular biology are highly desirable. Applicants should have a PhD/PhD near copmletion (or equivalent) in a relevant biomedical science.

7484| Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Chemical Ecology of Disease Vectors Unit, Department of Plant Protection Biology| The evolution of mosquito preference for humans| The Department of Plant Protection is an interdisciplinary constellation with good opportunities for strong research collaboration within and outside the departmental area (www.slu.se/en/departments/plant-protection-biology/). World-leading research is conducted in chemical ecology/sensory biology, and successful research is also conducted in resistance biology and integrated plant protection. The research efforts are directed towards both fundamental and applied research. At the Department, one group focusses on the chemical ecology of disease vectors. Female mosquitoes are major vectors of human disease and the most dangerous are those that preferentially bite humans. Host selection and discrimination by mosquitoes are mainly odour mediated. Understanding the genetic causes and effects of host choice in sympatric, closely related species is challenging, controversial and of significant practical importance for controlling these rapidly evolving vectors (www.slu.se/en/cv/sharon-hill/; www.slu.se/en/cv/rickard-ignell/). Duties:The research describes the genetic mechanism linking the basic molecular building blocks of the peripheral olfactory system with the ‘inherent’ host preference displayed by sibling malaria mosquito species using suitable techniques. The postdoc will be involved in a project that identifies the genetic changes resulting in minor structural differences that change odorant receptor and receptor neuron response to host odours among three sibling species of malaria mosquitoes that display different preferences for humans as a host. To investigate the mechanism underlying such functional changes in the receptors due to polymorphisms, the receptors will be functionally assessed in response to host odours. These findings will subsequently be investigated at the receptor neuron and behavioural levels.Qualifications:The successful candidate will hold a PhD, issued no earlier than 3 years ago. Experience with common molecular biological techniques is a requirement. In addition, experience with cell-based membrane protein expression and assay systems is a significant asset. S/he should be fluent in spoken and written English, and have excellent communication skills. The candidate must demonstrate a solid ability to work independently to advance our research. The candidate should furthermore enjoy working in a group environment and have interest in mentorship.Place of work: Alnarp, SwedenForm of employment: Stipend 1 yearExtent: 100%, Full timeStarting date: 1 January 2018Application: We welcome your application marked Mosquito Postdoc.Please submit your application to associate professor Sharon Hill ([email protected]) no later than 1 November 2017.Specific documents attached: Applications must contain (1) CV with full publications list, (2) copies of the two most important publications, (3) a description of research experiences, (4) a statement of scientific interests, as well as (5) contact information of two references.SLU is an equal opportunity employer.Further information:Sharon Hill, Associate professor+46(0)40 41 53 79 (office)+46(0)70 72 63 94 (mobile)[email protected]/en/cv/sharon-hill/ Rickard Ignell, Head of department+46(0)40 41 53 [email protected] www.slu.se/en/cv/rickard-ignell/The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) develops the understanding and sustainable use and management of biological natural resources.

7464| The Institute of Cancer Research, London, Breast Cancer Research| Postdoctoral Training Fellow - Cell Death & Inflammation - Immunogenic Cell Death| 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 Breast Cancer Now Toby Robins Research Centre at the ICR is the first centre in the UK entirely devoted to breast cancer research and its goal is to advance research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Formerly known as The Breakthrough Toby Robins Breast Cancer Research Centre, at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, it is located in state-of-the-art laboratory space, with excellent core facilities and funding. 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. The Cell Death and Inflammation Team, led by Professor Pascal Meier, is focussing on the complex relationship between cell death and inflammation, and how this can be exploited to prevent tumour relapse and stimulate long-lasting immunological protection. Improving treatment outcome requires understanding the basic mechanisms by which anti-cancer agents kill tumour cells, and how we can further improve their efficacy to prevent tumour relapse.The success of future anti-cancer therapies will require efficient stimulation of host immune responses. Notably, dying cells initiate adaptive immunity by providing both antigens and inflammatory stimuli for dendritic cells, which in turn activate CD8+ T cells via antigen cross-priming. Certain types of cell death (necroptosis) are especially immunogenic and elicit robust cross priming. Accordingly, necroptotic signalling in dying cells orchestrates adaptive immunity and can provide long-term tumour surveillance. Thus, investigating and targeting of proteins at the crossroad of cell death and host defence pathways, such as RIPK1, caspase-8 and IAPs, will provide new therapeutic opportunities in the field of immunotherapy.A Postdoctoral Training Fellow position is available to investigate the regulation of immunogenic cell death in Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The aim of this project is to exploit the complex relationship between cell death and immunology, and harness this to stimulate long-lasting immunological protection and prevent tumour relapse and overcome tumour resistance.The successful candidate will use a series of patient-derived, three-dimensional (3D) tumour organoid (PDOs) models for the assessment of rational-based treatment combinations. In addition to homotypic PDO cultures, he/she will also use 3D heterotypic PDO models composed of tumour cells and immune cells. This will allow the candidate to explore whether the treatment combination triggers immunogenic cell death, and causes immune cell infiltration, activation, and cytotoxicity.You will have the opportunity to interact within a multidisciplinary environment of molecular biologists, clinicians, computer scientists and a network of international collaborators.You should possess a PhD in a biological science such cell biology. Experience with 3D organoid culturing is essential. Experience with genetic engineering of mammalian cells is desirable.Appointment will be on a Fixed Term Contract for 3 years. The full salary scale for the post is in the range from £30,410 to £43,463 p.a. inclusive. Starting salary will be based on previous postdoctoral experience.Informal enquires can be made to Professor Pascal Meier at [email protected] Please do not send your application to Professor Pascal Meier, formal applications must be submitted online. To apply please submit your CV and covering letter (addressing with specific examples where you meet the person specification and incl. the names and addresses of at least two referees) online.

The recent observation that apoptosis regulatory components have dual roles in cell death and chromosome segregation suggests that these proteins are activated, not just to kill, but to maintain genetic integrity, and replace genetically unstable cells, thus enhancing the resilience of epithelia to insult. This perspective unifies cell death components as positive regulators of chromosome stability and tissue homeostasis.We are seeking Postdoctoral Training Fellows (x2) to investigate how cell death regulatory proteins actively promote faithful chromosome alignment during mitosis, and how they are activated to lethal levels when cells exhibit defects in mitosis progression. We also aim to identify strategies that trigger immunogenic cell death to overcome treatment resistance and provide new therapeutic opportunities in the field of immunotherapy.You will use a series of state-of-the art biochemical, imaging and in vivo approaches to establish the physiological and pathological role of components of the cell death machinery (ripoptosome) in regulating mitosis. This project touches upon many different fields of cancer biology, which will give you the opportunity to learn about the latest approaches in genome editing and explore the relationship between cell death, mitosis, tumour heterogeneity and immunology.You will have the opportunity to interact within a multidisciplinary environment of molecular biologists, clinicians, computer scientists and a network of collaborators who will assist with imaging capabilities, in vivo models for lung cancer, pharmacological lung cancer and biomarker studies, immunotherapy, and mass spectrometry.You should possess a PhD in a biological science such as genetics, cell biology or biochemistry. Experience in mitosis and/or genome instability is desirable.
