A postdoctoral position at the University of South Bohemia: New insights into niche partitioning of coexisting terrestrial orchids: functional traits shaping orchid-fungus interactions|
We are seeking one highly motivated postdoc to join a project aiming at identification of the factors underlying co-existence and niche partitioning of orchids in species-rich habitats of two climatically different regions by exploration of functional traits of orchids and their mycorrhizal fungi. Project description: Plant species can co-exist under natural conditions due to niche partitioning and an association with mycorrhizal fungi is one way to differentiate resources. Orchids critically rely on mycorrhiza during life cycle, and coexistence may be strongly contingent on the functional traits (FT) of their symbionts. Congruently, co-occurring orchids tend to associate with distinct mycorrhizal communities. It is however unclear to what extent orchid mycorrhizal fungi differ in ecological strategies and corresponding FT to enable effective niche partitioning. We will explore FT of orchid-fungus communities in species-rich habitats of two climatically different regions (Czech Rep. and Southern France) with special focus on enzymatic activity and nutrient utilization of fungi, mycorrhizal specificity under different conditions and presence of endohyphal bacteria. Using bipartite network modelling and multivariate statistical models we will describe the network structure and co-variation of FT of both symbiotic partners. The FT of orchid mycorrhizal fungi will be explored in such a complex approach for the first time.Responsibilities: the applicant will lead fieldwork in the Czech Rep. and France mainly during the first year of the grant project, will participate in isolation of OrM fungi into culture and their molecular identification, will carry out tests of orchid-fungus specificity in situ and in vitro, will focus on in vitro assessment of fungal traits such as fungal growth rate, enzymatic activity and fungus chemistry, and will take part in data analyses and manuscript writing. Research environment: The research is funded by the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic for years 2018-2020. The position will be based at the Department of Biology of Ecosystems at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice. The project will be supervised by a team of six researchers (team leader Assoc. Prof. Jana Jersáková – symbiotic interactions, Assoc. Prof. Petr Šmilauer – statistician, Dr. Jiří Bárta – soil microbiologist, all from University of South Bohemia, Dr. Jan Ponert – plant physiologist from Charles University in Prague, Dr. Petr Kohout – mycorrhizal research at Microbiological Inst. of Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague and senior researcher Dr. Bertrand Schatz – symbiotic interactions, from the CEFE-CNRS, Montpellier, France), other team members involved are two postdocs (Helene Vogt-Schilb and Tamara Těšitelová) and two PhD. students. The team will access various facilities of University of South Bohemia, Microbiological Inst. of Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, Charles University and CEFE-CNRS according to project needs.Required skills:- a Ph.D. degree in the relevant field (in early spring 2018 at the latest)- ability to work as a team member, but also being independent- reasonable publication record - driving license- fluency in English, both written and spoken- skills in techniques used in mycorrhizal research is an advantage- basic background in molecular tools (PCR, RFLP, cloning), knowledge of next generation sequencing methods is an advantageDuration: This position would ideally start from February 2018, latest start in April 2018 and will last till December 2020.Salary and other conditions: salary on the basis of local standards, including health insurance and social advantages. Monthly 27 000 CZK brutto, 250,000 CZK net annual income. There is possibility to increase the salary with variable remuneration determined by employee performance. The cost of living in the Czech Republic is generally low compared to other countries in Europe (http://www.studyin.cz/living-costs/).How to apply: Prepare a cover letter explaining your interest in the position. Give the names and email addresses of one to two people with first-hand knowledge of your skills and past research experience. Add a curriculum vitae including a publication list (3 pages maximum).

The Partnership for Increasing the Impact of Vector Control (PIIVeC) brings together leading research institutes and national disease control programmes from these three African countries to develop evidence based solutions for integrated vector control and to strengthen the links between the demand and supply of evidence at the national and global level. The project has a strong emphasis on capacity strengthening and will support a number of research fellows and also work with national institutes to increase the resilience of African nations to respond to outbreaks of vector borne disease. LSTM is seeking a Research Assistant/ Post-Doctoral Research Associate with a background in health policy research and an interest in vector control. The post holder will map out the existing health policy and systems research on vector control policy-making in Africa, and rapidly develop research protocols to identify facilitators and barriers to strengthening evidence based vector control in our focus countries. You will work with partners to conduct policy analyses, obtain ethical approvals, identify suitable collaborators (e.g. to assist with data collection/analysis), conduct desk based research, collect and analyse primary data and write up results for publication. Working with the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) you will communicate the research findings and recommendations to policy makers and implementers in the partner countries. In addition, you will work with other PIIVeC partners to help them frame their research in the appropriate policy/systems context. Accelerating research uptake, evidence synthesis and capability strengthening are all important issues in health policy and systems research, and you will be expected to liaise closely with PIIVeC staff responsible for these aspects to ensure coherence and to maximise opportunities for synergies across the programme. The programme has scope to arrange secondments to key global agencies and your work will be influential in establishing the nature and goals of these secondments. If you want to be appointed as the Research Assistant, you must possess a MSc; and a PhD if you want to apply for the Post-Doctoral Research Associate, in a relevant field (e.g. health policy and systems research, health economics, politics, anthropology, sociology) with an enthusiasm for conducting applied research into complex real-world issues. The ability to rapidly scope out and articulate critical research questions and work collaboratively to complete and communicate research findings is essential. Experience in conducting mixed methods research in a low-income country context is desired. The candidate must be able to work productively as part of a multi-cultural, multidisciplinary team. A working knowledge of French is highly desirable for this role. The post will be based in Liverpool with visits to the collaborating institutions in Burkina Faso, Cameroon and Malawi. Travel to US/Geneva based agencies will also be required and there is potential for an overseas secondment.

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 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 new Centre for Evolution and Cancer within the Institute of Cancer Research is supported by a Strategic Award from the Wellcome Trust. We focus on interrogating clonal evolution in tumours by studying the dynamics of heterogeneous cancer cell populations and their microenvironment. We make use of multi-region genomic profiling, single-cell genetics, computational histopathological analysis and mathematical modelling to reconstruct the past evolutionary history of tumours and predict their future. In the context of a collaboration between Prof Louis Chesler, leader of the Paediatric Solid Tumour Biology and Therapeutics team at the ICR, and Dr Andrea Sottoriva’s Evolutionary Genomics and Modelling Team within the Centre for Evolution and Cancer, we are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Training Fellow with expertise in cancer genomics and evolutionary modelling of cancer. The project involves the study of clonal evolution in childhood cancers over time during treatment using longitudinal sampling. The successful candidate will be responsible for analysing the data based on whole-exome, whole-genome and targeted next-generation sequencing, and designing mathematical and statistical models to interpret the results in light of tumour evolution. The ultimate the aim is understanding fundamental underlying dynamics of progression and treatment resistance in childhood malignancies. The candidate will have the opportunity to interact within a heterogeneous environment of biologists, clinicians, computer scientists and mathematicians within the ICR. The responsibilities include bioinformatics analysis of next-generation sequencing data and, crucially, the development of mathematical and statistical models of tumour evolution. The successful candidate will work closely with a diverse team to formulate hypotheses and validate predictions using quantitative genomic assays. Applicants should have a good first degree in mathematics, computer science, statistics or similar and a PhD in computational modelling, bioinformatics or similar. Applicants must have experience with modelling dynamical systems and have a good publication record. Experience in developing statistical models for data analysis is highly desirable. Having worked with large scale genomic datasets such as The Cancer Genome Atlas would also be highly desirable. Excellent organizational and communication skills are essential.
