7552| EPFL, STI-IGM-UNFoLD| Post-doctoral position on the aeroacoustics of dynamic stall| The unsteady flow diagnostics laboratory (UNFoLD) at the Swiss federal institute of technology of Lausanne (EPFL) invites applications by highly motivated, committed, and talented students for a post-doctoral position in the field of unsteady fluid dynamics. Our lab focusses on the investigation of unsteady flow phenomena by combining high spatially and temporally resolved flow field measurements with - what we refer to as - a fluid dynamical differential diagnosis. We develop methodologies to help bridge the gap between our observations and understanding of the development and interaction of characteristic flow structures (e.g. vortices) and technically relevant quantities, such as aerodynamic forces or power output, with applications in biological and bio-inspired flight, wind turbine rotor blade aerodynamics, etc.Within the SNSF-DFG funded bilateral project Combined aeroacoustic and flow diagnostic analysis of the motion induced sound generation by an oscillating airfoil with active flap, the prospective post-doctoral researcher will work in close collaboration with our partner at DLR in Göttingen (Germany) to experimentally investigate the sound generation and emission from a two dimensional wind turbine blade with a trailing edge flap. The objectives are to further develop a robust strategy that allows for unambiguous identification of sound source regions and characterisation of sound emission in flows past unsteadily moving objects and to characterise the full causal chain starting from airfoil kinematics, via vortex dynamics, up to the acoustic signature and the blade loads.Candidates should hold a PhD in physics, aeronautical or mechanical engineering. We are seeking candidates with a strong experimental profile with experience in aerodynamics or aeroacoustics, unsteady flow field analysis, and laboratory flow experiments. The position is for 2 years.To apply, please send your application, including cv, motivation statement, and names and contact information of three references as a single pdf file to karen.mulleners@epfl.ch. Please address explicitly in your motivation statement why you are attracted to experimental research. If you do not receive a reply within 2 weeks, please assume that your profile does not match with our interests at the moment.

7553| Queen Mary University of London, School of Biological & Chemcial Sciences| Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Psychology| The Department of Biological and Experimental Psychology at Queen Mary University of London is seeking to recruit a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant to support a new Arts Council of England (ACE) funded project, working with the charity Duckie (www.duckie.co.uk), to evaluate whether its Posh Club might work to reduce social isolation and promote engagement, health and well-being for older adults. Ageing is a growing concern in many countries, with projections suggesting that older adults (aged 65+) will comprise 25% of the population by 2025. Although people are living longer, they are not necessarily living well. Of particular concern, ageing is associated with social isolation (i.e., reduced social connection), which can negatively impact engagement, health, and well-being (e.g., exclusion, depression, development of disease), and strain health and social services (e.g., increases in GP calls/visits, increased burden on residential and long-term care). Current projections highlight the need for cost-effective, community-based solutions to help older adults stay independent, active, connected and happy, and to reduce ageing-related costs for health and social services. In collaboration with academics from QMUL and the charity Duckie, the post-holder will engage in cross-sectional and longitudinal research examining Duckie’s Posh Club for older adults. This project will provide important insights into the ways that the arts-based interventions can help older adults with different degrees of vulnerability to live and age well within their communities.The post holder will be based in London and work closely with, and under the supervision, of Dr Janelle Jones (PI). The main role of this post includes the on-going coordination and management of the research project. This involves literature searches, development of study procedures, preparation of study materials, monitoring of data collection, data entry, screening and analysis as well as writing up findings for publication in peer-reviewed journals. The post holder will also work closely with a team from Duckie, as well as GP practices (Hackney, Crawley) in order to support the recruitment and implementation of the study in the field.We are looking for highly motivated and experienced candidates, with a PhD (ABD considered) or equivalent qualification in social or health psychology or a closely related discipline. Candidates must have demonstrable experience in the successful management of longitudinal and/or community-based research projects (ideally with older adults).

7519| CeMM - Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences| Postdoc: Computational Genomics Meets Chemical Biology (Fully Funded Position)| We are recruiting an ambitious computational postdoc for a collaboration project that seeks to revolutionize cancer therapy by tar-geted, drug-induced degradation of important regulatory protein complexes. The project combines the expertise of two labs at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, integrating large-scale data gen-eration using cutting-edge technologies (chemical biology, epigenome sequencing, single-cell screening, mass spectrometry, imaging, etc.) with a deep interest in bioinformatics methods development and computational approaches in systems medicine.The ProjectWe pursue a systems-level understanding of gene regulation in leukemia, combining novel chemical biology, functional genetic screens, and cutting-edge sequencing technology. Using a powerful method for degrading any protein of choice in a matter of minutes (Winter et al. 2015 Science; Erb et al. 2017 Nature; Winter et al. 2017 Mol Cell), we will induce specific perturbations of gene regula-tion in leukemia cells, and we will monitor the cellular responses using high-throughput assays such as PRO-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIPmen-tation, and single-cell sequencing. Based on these data, the successful candidate will establish regulatory network models using causal modeling techniques, which will provide the basis for functional validations and for the identification of potential drug targets. In sum-mary, the project will develop and apply computational methods to establish a model of cell state deregulation in leukemia and to provide a rationale for pharmacologic degradation in cancer therapy.The CandidateWe are looking for highly motivated and academically outstanding candidates who want to pursue a scientific career in the fields of computational biology and/or functional (epi-)genomics. A strong candidate may have a background in the computational sciences (bioinformatics, statistics, physics, engineering, etc.) and some prior experience with collaborative research in high-throughput biolo-gy. In the same way, we are considering applicants with a background in medicine or in biology (e.g., functional genomics, chemical biology, human genetics, molecular medicine, etc.) who have strong quantitative skills and a keen interest in pursuing systems medi-cine projects.We offer a monthly gross salary of EUR 3,626 paid 14 times a year (annual gross salary: EUR 50,764). Bock Lab (http://epigenomics.cemm.oeaw.ac.at/)The Medical Epigenomics Lab at CeMM pursues an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative research program aimed at understanding the cancer epigenome and establishing its utility for precision medicine. Led by Christoph Bock – a computational biologist, ERC grant-ee, and recipient of the Overton Prize of the International Society of Computational Biology (2017) – the lab pursues several lines of research:• Epigenomics. Many diseases show widespread deregulation of epigenetic cell states. As members of the International Human Epigenome Consortium, we use epigenome sequencing to dissect the epigenetic basis of cancer and immune disorders.• Technology. Groundbreaking biomedical research is often driven by new technologies. Our lab is therefore heavily invested into technology development, including single-cell sequencing, CRISPR screens, and epigenome editing.• Bioinformatics. New algorithms and advanced computational methods allow us to infer epigenetic cell states from large da-tasets, in order to reconstruct the epigenetic landscape of cellular differentiation and complex diseases.• Diagnostics. New technologies (genome sequencing, mobile devices, etc.) provide important information for personalized medicine. We develop and validate assays and algorithms for translating the value of digital medicine into routine clinical practice.Winter Lab (http://cemm.at/research/groups/georg-winter-group/)The mission of our new lab at CeMM (started 2016) is to devise pharmacologic strategies to understand oncogenic gene regulation and to innovate novel therapeutic approaches to modulate transcriptional dysregulation in cancer. In particular, we are developing targeted protein degradation as a new paradigm to therapeutically disrupt, probe, and understand molecular machines involved in oncogenic transcription (Winter et al. 2015 Science; Erb et al. 2017 Nature; Winter et al. 2017 Mol Cell). Targeted protein degradation allows elimination of proteins within minutes after ligand exposure, hence enabling us to derive mechanistic insights at an unprecedented kinetic resolution. We are combining such acute perturbations with genome-scale technologies that report on gene activity, genome structure and chromatin function in a quantitative fashion. We expect that our strategy uncovers a new level of a functional under-standing of oncogenic transcription. Integrative analysis will enable us to model disease-relevant transcriptional circuits and gene-regulatory networks. This will rationalize novel therapeutic targets that are based on an unprecedented understanding of the transcrip-tional wiring of cancer cells.The Institute (http://www.cemm.at/) CeMM is an international research institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and founding member of EU-LIFE (http://eu-life.eu), an association of leading biomedical research institutes in Europe. CeMM has an outstanding track record of top-notch science (last five years: >10 papers in Nature/Cell/Science/NEJM, >25 papers in Nature/Cell sister journals), medical translation, and spin-off com-panies.

7513| Novartis Corporation, Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, Inc.| Structure- and ligand-based multi-target machine learning for virtual screening| Applications are invited for an industrial postdoctoral position under Dr. Valery Polyakov and Dr. Eric Martin at Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research in Emeryville, California. This interdisciplinary postdoctoral opportunity in Computational Sciences will work at the interface of structure-based drug design and machine learning. Inexpensive computational virtual screens by docking have not had the accuracy needed to replace expensive and time-consuming experimental high-throughput screens. QSAR can be accurate for compounds similar to the training set, but not for interesting novel chemical matter. Our lab is using multi-target machine learning to overcome these limitations. AutoShim creates accurate, target customized scoring functions by adjusting the weights of pharmacophore shims in a protein binding site to reproduce several hundred training IC50s.1 Kinase Ensemble Surrogate AutoShim pre-docks the screening collection into an ensemble of 8 diverse representative kinases, which can then be “shimmed” to predict the activities of the entire collection on all other kinase with training data, without requiring further docking or even protein structures.2 Profile-QSAR is a 2D ligand substructure-based method that expands the domain of applicability of empirical models to the entire company archive by using predicted activity from thousands of conventional single-assay 2D QSAR models as compound descriptors for modeling new assays.3,4This project will expand on these methodologies as well as developing new approaches.The qualified candidate will be a highly motivated, creative and independent computational chemist with expertise in modern machine learning methods including multi-target deep neural networks. The candidate should be a competent programmer familiar both with procedural languages, ideally python, as well as machine learning packages including scikit learn or R and tensorflow. Familiarity with docking will be important, and 3D QSAR will be a plus.The position will start January 2018. Please apply through http://postdoc.nibr.com/eric-martin.html 1. Martin, E.

Portal to study the molecular basis underlying epigenetic inheritance in cancer with a particular interest in the role of non-coding RNAs in the generation and propagation of molecular information through subsequent cell divisions.With the observation that the exquisite structure of non-coding RNAs is embedded with multiple layers of information that we are only beginning to understand and the fact that these molecules play major regulatory roles in every kingdom of life, we hypothesize that non-coding RNAs modulate the flow of epigenetic information, feature at the basis of cell plasticity.Your role within the team will consist in analysing gene expression profiles (4-SU mediated RNA metabolic labelling coupled to RNA-Seq, NET-Seq), the epigenetic landscape (ChIP-Seq, ATAC-Seq) and the role that non-coding RNAs play in shaping nuclear architecture (ChIRP-Seq, DiR-F/DiR-ID). Our approach combines mechanistic molecular analysis with high-throughput sequencing and imaging technologies with the ultimate aim of untangling the molecular systems underlying epigenetic information transfer at a single cell level.About you:You should be open minded and resolute. You should have a PhD in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology or Biochemistry along with a solid interest/background in evolutionary genetics/epigenetics.

7527| Division of Breast Cancer Research, Cell Death and Inflammation Team, ICR, The Institute of Cancer Research| Postdoctoral Training Fellow - Cell Death & Inflammation - Cell Competition| The Cell Death and Inflammation Team, led by Professor Pascal Meier, is focusing on cell competition, and how ‘fitter’ cells stimulate the elimination of nearby ‘loser’ cells.Cell competition is a cell fitness-sensing mechanism conserved from insects to mammals that eliminates those cells that, although viable, are less fit than their neighbours. An important implication of cell competition is that cellular fitness is not only a cell-intrinsic property but is also determined relative to the fitness of neighbouring cells: a cell that is of suboptimal fitness in one context may be ‘‘super-fit’’ in the context of a different cell population.A Postdoctoral Training Fellow position is available to investigate the mechanism of cell competition, and how this might be linked to cancer. The successful candidate will initially use Drosophila as a model system to uncover the signalling mechanisms of cell competition, and how ‘fitter’ cells murder ‘weaker’ loser cells. Heterogenetic, patient-derived, three-dimensional (3D) tumour organoid (PDOs) models will also be used. This will allow the candidate to explore whether cell competition mechanisms can be exploited to manipulate tumour evolution to improve treatment outcome.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 fly genetics, developmental biology or cell biology. Experience of fly genetics is essential. Experience with 3D organoid culturing and genetic engineering 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 Pascal.Meier@icr.ac.uk. 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.We consider all applications on merit and have a strong commitment to enhancing the diversity of our staff.
