PostDoctoral Research Associate|
GLOBAL HEALTH INTERVENTION STRATEGIES IN THE DEVELOPMENTAL ORIGINS OF OBESITYPostdoctoral Research Associate, Division Women’s Health, King’s College LondonA Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available to work on a 3-year MRC Newton Fund Research Partnership Project with the National Institute of Medical Science and Nutrition Mexico City entitled:‘Interventions to Improve Maternal Metabolic Profile and Prevent Cardio-Metabolic and Behavioural Deficits in Future Generations Due to Programming by Maternal Obesity’The prevalence of obesity in Mexico is one of the highest in the world, and the highest for childhood obesity. Maternal obesity is now the single biggest obstetric risk factor, and it is now widely recognised that maternal obesity is not only a risk factor for pregnancy outcomes (e.g. pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes and fetal macrosomia) but also for the long term health of the child, with increased risk of obesity and related comorbidities. Diet and nutrition in pregnancy are recognized modifiable risk factors for offspring metabolic health and offer the opportunity for intervention to stem the growing tide of childhood obesity and impact on the cardiovascular and mental health of the next generation.Dr Zambrano’s team in Mexico and Dr Taylor’s group at King’s College London have worked in the field of developmental programming for many years and have a shared interest in pharmacological and lifestyle interventions to improve maternal metabolic profile in obese pregnancy and prevent cardio-metabolic and behavioural deficits in the offspring. The teams have identified candidate probiotic and nutraceutical compounds, and will employ complementary rodent models to advance understanding of the efficacy and safety of these compounds in improving maternal metabolic profiles in obese pregnancy and their disease-preventive potential for cardiovascular (high blood pressure) metabolic (obesity and diabetes) and behavioural deficits (cognitive function and ADHD) in future generations. Highly motivated candidates with an excellent track record are invited to apply. The position of Postdoctoral Research Associate requires education to PhD level in a subject related to biomedical sciences, 2-3 years’ postdoctoral experience in physiological or behavioural science and possession of an appropriate Home Office licence; research experience of in vivo techniques and practical skills in molecular biology techniques would be beneficial but not essential.Salary will be offered on grade 5, spine point 30, currently at £33,665 per annum inclusive of £2,323 London Allowance.Informal enquiries may be made by contacting Dr Paul Taylor ([email protected]

Multi-scale hyperspectral imaging for enhanced understanding and control of food microbiology|
Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) goes beyond the capabilities of conventional imaging and spectroscopy by obtaining spatially resolved spectra from targets at spatial resolutions varying from the level of single cells up to macroscopic objects. Recent developments in hardware have made it possible to obtain macroscopic HSI data using rapid, low cost hand-held systems which have the potential to vastly improve the food industry’s ability to rapidly identify microbial contamination along the processing chain. However, this potential is hampered by two key challenges. Firstly, there is a lack of knowledge of the underlying biochemical reactions resulting in changes in spectra of contaminated foods that occur at the macroscopic level. This makes it difficult to separate changes in the spectra due to natural senescence from those due to microbial growth. Secondly, there is no existing methodology to link microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic HSI of bacterial colonies. Hyper Micro Macro addresses these challenges by: 1. Investigating microbial growth in food matrices and surfaces using HSI across different spatial and spectral modalities (including reflectance and fluorescence) combined with microbial characterisation and high throughput sequencing. 2. Developing new chemometric approaches to combine the data from (1) to better understand these processes. A vacancy exists for a Post-doctoral Research Fellow – level 2. The successful candidate will initially be employed on a 2 year contract (at PD2 level). Subject to satisfactory performance and outputs related to the research aspects of the role and including satisfactory skill and competency development, in line with the UCD Research Skills and Career Development framework, a second two year contract may be available to the individual at PD 2 level or in the case of outstanding performance, and as assessed against the UCD Research Fellow Criteria, at Research Fellow level. This is an advanced research focused role, building on your prior experience as a post-doctoral fellow, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator. The primary purpose of the role is to develop new or advanced research skills and competences, on the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications and scholarly dissemination, the development of funding proposals, and the supervision and mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.Salary: €38,155 - €46,255 per annum Appointment on the above range will be dependent on qualifications and experience
