7381| Utrecht University, Department of Biology| Deciphering the systems that control epithelial cell polarity| SummaryThe candidate will investigate the control of epithelial polarity as part of the Vici project “Deciphering the systems that control epithelial cell polarity”, funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). The candidate is offered a full-time position for 3 years.BackgroundCell polarity is a fundamental property that is essential in human development and for the functioning of adult tissues. Epithelial cells, the most common polarized cells, depend on polarization into apical and basolateral domains to act as selectively permeable barriers between body compartments and with the outside environment. Loss of polarity in epithelial cells contributes to diseases like polycystic kidney disease and retinal dystrophies. Moreover, epithelial cancers are characterized by loss of cell polarity and epithelial integrity, and many polarity regulators are mutated or deregulated in cancer.The molecular mechanisms that control the formation and maintenance of distinct polarized domains are still far from understood. We also know little of the causal mechanisms by which deregulation of polarity contributes to tumorigenesis. The research in this Vici project focuses on two questions: i) what is the network of interactions between polarity determinants that maintains polarity in established epithelia, and ii) what are the direct consequences of disrupting cell polarity on epithelial integrity, morphology, and cell fate.To address these questions, the candidate will combine precisely controlled perturbations of the polarizing system with accurate characterization of the effects of these perturbations on the polarizing machinery and on epithelial organization and cell fate.ApproachThe studies will make use of the nematode C. elegans as a model system, because this animal is ideal for in vivo studies of polarity. Due to its transparency and limited number of cells, polarity can be followed in the context of a developing animal with single cell resolution. The presence of multiple distinct types of epithelia allows the investigation of the polarizing machinery in different contexts. Finally, recent developments in inducible protein degradation and tissue-specific gene knockouts make it possible to inactivate proteins in a time- and tissue-controlled manner, and follow the effects on cell polarity, morphology, and fate over time.Within the Vici framework, multiple individual projects will be developed with input from the candidates. Technical approaches used include the use of CRISPR/Cas9 to engineer fluorescently tagged polarity regulators, and to engineer proteins that can be inactivated in a time- and tissue-controlled manner, live cell imaging using advanced light microscopy, and the use of RNAseq to investigate the effects of polarity loss on cell fate.We offerThe candidate is offered a full-time position for 3 years (PhD student). The gross salaryt is € 2220,- per month, increasing to € 2840,- in year 4. The salary is supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8% and an end-of-year bonus of 8,3% per year. In addition, we offer a pension scheme, a partially paid parental leave, and flexible employment conditions.RequirementsWe are looking for highly motivated individuals with a PhD degreee, with experience, or an interest in developmental biology and in working with the model organism C. elegans. He/she communicates easily in English, both verbally and in writing, and is eager to work within a team of enthusiastic researchers. Experience with light microscopy, molecular biology, or bioinformatics is appreciated, but not essential.

7430| University College Dublin, UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science| UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1, UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science (Temporary)| Applications are invited for a UCD Post-Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 within the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science. This is a temporary post.UCD is one of Ireland’s leading universities and UCD Lyons Farm, where this position will be based, is used extensively for teaching and research in the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine. Post quota abolition, grass based systems will predominate in Ireland, but as land will be the main limiting resource, individual farmers will be required to expand on a limited land bank. The main aim of the research at UCD Lyons Farm for the initial 5-year period is to evaluate the feasibility of a high input/output grazing system within such a limited land holding scenario. The focus in such a system will be on maximising milk/milk solids output from the existing land holding which involves high output from individual cows and high stocking rates. This will occur most efficiently through mmaximising the use of grazed grass/home grown forage in the system and the strategic use of supplementation thereafter. The successful Post-Doctoral Fellow will work principally on this project collating and reporting data gathered from a 60-cow demonstration herd. See Job Description for more details.Salary: €34,975 per annumClosing Date: 17:00hrs (Local Irish Time) Friday 25th August 2017.Applications must be submitted by the closing date and time specified.

The NORMS group develops and applies new methods to accurately simulate multiphase flow and transport processes in models of complex geological reservoirs. Applications of the research are numerous and include prediction of geological CO2 sequestration, hydrocarbon recovery (including improved and enhanced recovery), groundwater flow, and contaminant transport. The particular focus of this post will be on the use of novel numerical methods, including dynamic adaptive meshing, to model and investigate the movement of fluids in crustal magma reservoirs. Such reservoirs are a critically important part of the plumbing system that delivers magma to volcanoes, and metal-rich fluids to ore deposits, yet the fluid dynamical processes that occur within these reservoirs remain poorly understood. There is a significant gap in knowledge that will be explored within this project.This is an exciting opportunity for a talented individual to work within a large multi-disciplinary research group, developing and applying advanced modelling techniques to problems of broad interest and significance in Earth Science. The post forms part of a large, cross-disciplinary and multi-institution research project (FAMOS – From Arc Magmas to Ore DepositS) funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The overall aim of this large consortium project is to understand the processes within crustal magma reservoirs that deliver the copper-rich fluids that form copper porphyry ore deposits. The successful candidate will collaborate closely with the multidisciplinary team already in place within Imperial College London developing novel computational methods for modelling and simulation of multi-scale, multi-phase flows, and also with colleagues across the FAMOS consortium. S/He will be expected to regularly publish papers in international refereed journals, and give presentations at relevant international conferences. Applicants should possess a PhD, or equivalent, in a numerate subject area such as Mathematics, Physics, Geoscience, Computing or Engineering.
