7380| The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, Tumour Suppressors Group| Postdoctoral Scientist in Tumour Suppressors Group| We are currently looking for a Postdoctoral Scientist within the Tumour Suppressors Group. In this group we aim to understand the role of p53 and mutations in p53 in small cell lung cancer and the interplay with other tumour suppressors. We are particularly interested in which mutations correlate with worse outcome and to what extent p53 mutations contribute to chemoresistance and the aggressiveness of this disease. Previously, we discovered a role for mutant p53 in regulating rab coupling protein (RCP) recycling of integrins and growth factor receptors in invasion and metastasis. Preliminary data in the lab indicates that not only integrins and growth factor receptors are regulated, but also drug transporters. This would make RCP an interesting drug target to prevent metastasis and to make tumours more sensitive to current chemotherapeutics. The post holder will investigate the role of RCP in small cell lung cancer by checking expression levels in patient samples, mutation status and the role of RCP in chemoresistance of small cell lung cancer primary tumour cells. They will characterize the interaction between RCP and drug transporters and work together with a small company to investigate the potential of small molecule inhibitors to prevent RCP from binding to those drug transporters. Any potential candidate molecules will be tested in a variety of cell lines, primary tumour samples and in xenograft in vivo experiments.The successful applicant should have a PhD in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Medial Biology, Oncology, or a related field. Experience in cell culture, cell signalling pathways and molecular biology is essential. Whilst experience with primary cell lines and in vivo modelling is not required, it is desirable.For any informal enquiries about this post, please contact Dr Patricia Muller via email: [email protected] The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (www.cruk.manchester.ac.uk), an Institute of The University of Manchester (www.manchester.ac.uk), is a world-leading centre for excellence in cancer research.

7356| SUNY Upstate Medical University, Center for Vision Research| Two Postdoctoral positions - Protein aggregation/autophagic diseases in the eye| Job SummaryTwo Postdoctoral positions are available in the Center for Vision Research at SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, New York, USA in the lab of Dr. Audrey Bernstein starting July 2017. Project 1: Promoting regenerative healing in the eye. Scarring results from the persistence of myofibroblasts, cells that excessively contract tissue and secrete disorganized extracellular matrix. RNA sequencing of myofibroblasts revealed significant changes in the expression of genes coding for ubiquitin pathway components, including increased expression of a subset of deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs). This project will 1) investigate the impact of the DUB, USP10 in regulating integrin-mediated scarring and 2) test the efficacy of a self-delivery siRNA therapeutic to promote regenerative healing and prevent scarring in vivo. Project 2: Autophagic Dysfunction in Exfoliation Glaucoma. In Exfoliation Glaucoma (XFG), the leading identifiable cause of glaucoma, the eye accumulates protein aggregates that block the exit of fluid from the eye. Our studies are the first to identify an age-related cellular defect in the autophagy system in patient-derived XFG cells. This project will 1) interrogate the basic mechanisms leading to protein aggregate formation and expulsion from cells, and 2) leveraging the vast literature on neurodegenerative protein aggregation diseases, test novel therapies on patient-derived cells to reverse XFG pathology.Both projects use human primary patient-derived cells, organ culture, molecular and cell biological techniques as well as genetic and proteomic screening. The salary will be according to NIH guidelines, depending on the number of years of postdoctoral experience. SUNY Upstate is a well-funded campus with excellent resources. Syracuse, NY has a high quality of life with beautiful surroundings. http://www.goodyclancy.com/projects/upstate-neuroscience-research-building/Required QualificationsWe are seeking highly motivated and creative individuals with a PhD or MD.

7338| New York University Abu Dhabi, Division of Sciences and Mathematics| Post-Doctoral Associate, Division of Sciences and Mathematics, NYU Abu Dhabi| Post-Doctoral Associate Division of Sciences and MathematicsNYU Abu DhabiApplications are invited for a postdoctoral position on Lagrangian numerical methods for studying ocean dynamics with Professor Francesco Paparella at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD). The appointment will be for one year with potential for further two-years renewal, starting no later than Spring 2018. The successful candidate will be in charge of developing a Lagrangian numerical code running as a subsystem of an ocean circulation model (ROMS will be the initial testbed). The code will differ from current Lagrangian codes in being focused on on-line (that is, running synchronously with the circulation model) calculations with a number of particles comparable with the number of Eulerian grid nodes. The focus will initially be on elucidating the advantages of on-line vs off-line calculations. In the long run the goal is to use it as the foundation for innovative biogeochemical modelling. The post-doc will have direct access to NYUAD’s high performance computing facility (the Dalma cluster), and will be working in close contact with post-doc and researchers of the Center for Prototype Climate Modeling (http://nyuad.nyu.edu/en/research/nyuad-institute/institute-research/cpcm.html), joining a small team of scientists engaged in a broad effort to develop Lagrangian models to understand and model Ocean and Atmospheric dynamics. Funds will be available for travel to conferences and for other collaborative endeavors. Applicants must hold a PhD in ocean/atmospheric sciences, applied mathematics or related fields. The successful applicant will have significant experience in developing numerical codes in Fortran or C, in addition to running parallel code on high performance computing facilities and analyzing its outputs. Familiarity with ocean or atmospheric circulation models, and in particular with ROMS will be a plus. The terms of employment are very competitive.

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.

7359| University of Kansas, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology| Postdoctoral researcher in population modelling| Dr Daniel Reuman is recruiting into his lab in the University of Kansas Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB). At least 3 years of funding are available to carry out modelling pertaining to spatial population dynamics and analysis of large spatial population data sets. The postdoc will join an interdisciplinary team consisting of Reuman, three postdocs and one student currently in the Reuman lab, collaborators in EEB and in the Math Department at KU, and collaborators at several institutions in the USA and UK. Funding is from the NSF Mathematical Biology program and the James S McDonnell Foundation. In many hierarchical dynamical systems, “synchrony” between multiple fluctuating variables, i.e. correlations or other similarities in fluctuations between variables through time, is more important than the individual variables themselves. For instance, a neuron may fire only when its input neurons fire synchronously. Or the electrical grid may crash only when demands of multiple users become synchronized, producing total-usage spikes. Ecosystems can show this type of dependency on synchrony. Ecosystems include multiple trophic levels, with population signals from lower levels often being spatially aggregated to affect higher levels. For instance, a predator is only harmed if its prey are scarce over its whole hunting area. For systems of this type, it is primarily the synchronous components of signals that matter in the average signal that affects the next level – non-synchronous components tend to cancel in the spatial average. Thus synchrony is very important to ecosystems. Synchrony is found in organisms as diverse as mammals and protists, at distances up to thousands of kilometers. Synchrony relates to large-scale outbreaks and shortages and is important in conservation. In spite of the importance of synchrony in ecology, possible impacts of climate change on synchrony are little studied. Synchrony can also be transmitted through trophic interactions - e.g., a synchronized predator can induce synchrony in its prey. But the extent to which climate-induced changes in synchrony may cascade through species interaction networks via this mechanism, or influence spatial or other branches of ecology, is unknown. The postdoc will perform statistical and/or mathematical population modelling to address these questions, and will investigate connections to extinction risk models and to Taylor’s law, a commonly applied empirical regularity in spatial ecology. The postdoc will be encouraged to develop his/her own projects within the goals of the funding grants.We seek individuals from biological or physical-science backgrounds with skills and demonstrable interests in modelling and related areas. Experience with stochastic process modelling and Fourier or wavelet approaches is a plus. Experience with population models is a plus, as are computational skills, particularly if applied in a statistical or modelling context. A PhD or ABD in a related field is required. Applicants from underrepresented groups are encouraged. The University of Kansas (KU) is a major research university with special strength in ecology and evolutionary biology. The EEB department has >40 permanent faculty working in a wide variety of theoretical and empirical areas, with National Research Council and Chronicle of Higher Education rankings in the top 10 in the USA. KU is located in Lawrence, Kansas, about 30 miles from Kansas City. Lawrence is a progressive and cosmopolitan university town with vibrant art, music, and sports scenes that has been ranked among the top ten college towns in the country for liveability.See http://www.reumanlab.res.ku.edu/ for further information about the Reuman lab and links to past publications.
