8346| Queen Mary University of London, School of Biological & Chemical Sciences| Postdoctoral Research Assistant| A Wellcome Trust funded Postdoctoral Research Assistant position is available at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in Dr Robert Keers’s group, investigating a novel polygenic approach to gene-environment interaction in depression and anxiety.Queen Mary is one of the top research-led universities in the UK and was ranked 9th among the UK multi-faculty universities in the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). All postdoctoral researchers are part of the QMUL Doctoral College, which provides support with high-quality training and career development activities.The project will investigate a novel approach to gene environment interaction using genome-wide genetic data in identical (monozygotic, MZ) twins. As they are genetically identical, differences within MZ twin-pairs on a measured outcome such as depression or anxiety are considered to be the result of the environment. However, if genetic variants increase response to these environmental effects, within-pair differences may vary as a function of genotype. We recently successfully piloted this approach and aim build on this work by establishing the Genetics of Sensitivity to the Environment Consortium bringing together the world’s twins with genetic data. This will allow us to 1) Replicate and refine our findings from the pilot study 2) Investigate environmental sensitivity genes across disorders and ages 3) Estimate the heritability of sensitivity to environmental influencesThe ideal candidate for the position will have a PhD in quantitative or statistical genetics with significant experience in the analysis and meta-analysis of genome-wide data. A track record of peer-reviewed publications is essential. The post holder will work closely with collaborators at several different sites including the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, University of Southern Denmark, VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands and Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Australia. The role involves extended research visits to each of the sites The post is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is a full-time position. The start date is 1st April 2019 and the post is available for a period 14 months.

8359| Ghent University, Mechanics of Materials and Structures| Postdoctoral vacancy (3 years) on automated software workflow for medical application of 3D printed technologies| 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies carry the promise of revolutionizing the quality and efficiency of healthcare. However, the required technologies, even when available, are currently too fragmented to be integrated into routine, affordable and streamlined solutions that can benefit a large number of patients. The challenge thereby is to deliver 3D printing technologies that enable:Patient-specific solutions: personalized medical devices that are designed using the images acquired for individual patients and best fit their treatment needs;Complexity and miniaturization: complex shapes, articulations and miniaturized geometries of implantable medical devices and instruments have the potential to radically enhance treatment effectiveness and post-treatment recovery;Streamlined care: the ability to integrate diagnosis, design and manufacturing of AM medical devices into a validated software platform is the key to delivering fast, affordable treatments with dramatic life-saving potential.The INTERREG project 3DMed aims to improve affordability and large-scale accessibility of medical treatment using 3D printed devices. This will be achieved by increasing the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of state-of-the-art 3D printing technologies for medical applications and integrating them into a streamlined, fast, cost-effective software platform for use in routine clinical practice. This project contains 17 partners from The Netherlands, Belgium, France and United Kingdom, including universities, hospitals, software suppliers, 3D printing companies, clinical observers, manufacturers of medical devices and implants,... The project is coordinated by TUDelft.In this postdoctoral position, it is the purpose to develop a streamlined, fast, cost-effective software platform to connect the design and production of 3D printed devices with clinical evaluation (pre- and postoperative). This involves data transfer protocols to link image acquisition, design and the manufacture (3D printing) of the device; software collection and evaluation; software development; software interfacing; process automation; protocol collection and validation of the software platform for the selected categories of medical devices. Interfacing various software tools also involves formatting the input and output of each software so that automated interaction with the other software components is possible. Each input and output must be expressed in a terminology that is understandable by both clinicians and engineers and uses a consistent set of variables and measures for defining the medical device under consideration. Setting up this tool chain of different (commercial) software packages and programming the necessary data protocols to achieve an integrated software platform is the goal, and to achieve this goal, a close collaboration will be required with the researchers at TUDelft, clinical observers, AM service providers and software companies.Only candidates with a PhD degree or equivalent experience should apply. The candidate should have strong programming skills (Python, C++, C#,...) and has experience with different software tools for patient-specific design of implants, for example: (i) medical image segmentation software (Mimics, SimpleWare, Amira,...), (ii) FE tools (Abaqus, Ansys, Simcenter,...), (iii) topology optimization (Autodesk Within Medical, Altair/Optistruct, Frustum/Generate,...). He/she will closely work together with the other postdoc in the team (see other vacancy) and is willing to travel frequently to meet and discuss with the other project partners in the neighbouring countries.More information can be found on:http://www.composites.ugent.be/PhD_job_vacancies_PhD_job_positions_composites.html

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.We are seeking a highly motivated data scientist to perform state-of-the-art analyses of radiology image data, using radiomics, machine learning and other innovative methods. The successful candidate will work on data from a variety of different clinical trials and will contribute to the integration of images from different modalities with clinical data, “-omics” and other types of cancer data.This two-year, fixed-term post within the Division of Radiotherapy and Imaging is an exciting opportunity for a scientist with a flair for statistics and coding, at the leading edge of informatics in cancer research: the interface of radiology and genomics.You will be working on a programme whose overall aims are to apply advanced information- and image-processing techniques to tumour classification and early detection of response to treatment. You will be involved in the study of both rare and common cancers, which provide interesting and different challenges, the solutions of which can make a real difference to patients’ lives.Radiology is a domain that could realise enormous benefits from Big Data and Artificial Intelligence. There is a clear capacity problem in the sector: our MRI and CT scanners can deliver data at a faster rate than it can be “read” by increasingly overstretched radiologists, whilst an aging population means that demand will continue to increase faster than new human practitioners can be trained. Computers perform in a consistent and reproducible manner, do not tire and can be replicated easily. It is well recognised that we are not currently making the most of the wealth of radiology data available. Simple image-based features, such as the longest diameter across a tumour in a 2-D image slice (part of the RECIST set of criteria) fail to capture the subtleties of tumour shape and image texture. Radiomics is the name given to a data-processing paradigm by which quantitative imaging “features” are extracted from pixel data (typically via automated algorithms) and analysed using statistical methods and machine learning.The Institute of Cancer Research and Royal Marsden Hospital (ICR/RMH) have access to a unique collection of clinical research data encompassing a range of tumour types, including breast, lung, myeloma, prostate and sarcoma, and you will be responsible for developing and delivering radiomics-based analyses in a number of these areas. A particularly exciting data collection will be generated from the TRACERx – Renal study. TRACERx (TRAcking Cancer Evolution through therapy (Rx)) is a long-term, multi-million pound research project that will transform our understanding of the drivers and intratumour heterogeneity of renal cell carcinoma, and determine the relationship between heterogeneity and disease stage, clinical outcome and treatment response. This will be a huge step towards an era of precision medicine.Recent work at the ICR has established a radiomics “pipeline”, based on the XNAT data-sharing platform (www.xnat.org), which will rapidly deliver the quantitative “feature” data. The aim of this post is to perform the subsequent analysis and interpretation, building descriptive and predictive models to relate imaging findings to non-imaging biomarkers.The successful candidate will have considerable relevant experience and will be expected to possess a relevant first degree in an appropriate scientific or computational discipline.Appointment will be on a Fixed Term Contract for 24 months. The starting salary will be £31,023 – £38,135 p.a. inclusive, dependent on ability, experience and fit to the person specification.All applications should be submitted online on the ICR Careers web page https://www.icr.ac.uk/careers , vacancy ref 657

8345| Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute| Postdoctoral Scientist – Prostate Oncobiology| About the role:We are looking for a highly-motivated Postdoctoral Scientist to join Dr Baena’s Prostate Oncobiology group to study the role of inflammation on prostate tumour initiation and how to prevent their progression to metastatic prostate cancer.Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second leading cause of cancer-related mortality in men worldwide, accounting for 15% of all male cancer deaths. PCa patients exhibit a high heterogeneity both clinically and biologically highly variable clinical behaviour; some have indolent disease whilst in others it is lethal. Although the initial response to androgen deprivation therapy is almost universal, progression to castration resistant state is inevitable and lethal. Previous work from our laboratory shows the importance of further understanding molecular events leading to castration-resistant prostate cancer as they’re key for the development of improved therapies for such patients (Barros-Silva et al., 2018; Parry et al., 2018; Baena et al., 2013). Thus, the post holder will work on defining the role of tumour-driven inflammatory pathways, and its impact on tumour microenvironment to promote tumour-initiation and progression to castration-resistant stage.

8353| University of Otago, Department of Anatomy| Postdoctoral Fellow - Neuronal Cell Biology and Imaging| The Department of Anatomy is one of the largest and longest-established departments at the University of Otago. Our staff teach and research a diverse range of exciting topics in the field of biomedical sciences, including neuroscience and cell biology.The RoleWe are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and self-motivated Post-Doctoral Fellow that will work in a research group, led by Dr Laura Gumy, that combines state-of-the-art neuronal cell biology and high-resolution live cell imaging to understand mechanisms of cellular trafficking within neurons. Specifically, the applicant will work on a project titled 'Mechanisms regulating long-range intracellular transport in neurons'. The project is funded by the Marsden Fund, Royal Society of New Zealand.The long-term aims of the Gumy Laboratory are to devise new strategies to promote neural repair in diseased/injured neurons by combining investigations into cytoskeletal dynamics and transport mechanisms at the molecular, cellular and animal level. We uniquely combine cell biology techniques with high-resolution live imaging, quantitative image analysis and biochemical methods. To achieve our research goals we recently acquired brand new spinning disk confocal and TIRF microscopes and are in the process of further expanding our imaging capability.Our work has shown how the regrowth of neuronal axons depends on the interplay between the local translation of mRNAs, the remodelling of the microtubule cytoskeleton and the selective transport of molecules and organelles. We recently elucidated the molecular mechanism that enables the sorting and long-range transport of secretory vesicles into axons, that is necessary for their growth (Gumy et al., 2017; Neuron). This mechanism, which is based on the regulation of transport by a microtubule associated protein (MAP2), provides the first evidence for the existence of this type of trafficking compartment in neurons. Given the ubiquitous presence of many microtubule associated proteins in axons, we are fundamentally interested in understanding their role in directing specific transport routes. Findings from this work will contribute to the identification of new therapeutic targets for treatment of a wide-range of disorders associated with cytoskeletal and/or intracellular trafficking defects.Duties will include:• Experimental design and laboratory research.• Analysis of data.• Writing manuscripts reporting on research results for publication in peer-reviewed journals.• Presenting findings at scientific meetings.• Assisting in writing grant applications and pursuing funding opportunities.• Assisting with writing progress reports to the funding organisation.• Assisting in the supervision of research students.Your Skills and Experience• PhD degree in Cell Biology/Neurobiology/Biochemistry/Biophysics or a related area and may have had previous postdoctoral experience.• Experience in laboratory Cell Biology/Neurobiology/Imaging/Biochemistry techniques.• Experience in preparation of primary neuron cultures is desirable but not essential.• Experience in immunocytochemistry and tissue culture.• Experience in live cell imaging techniques.• Experience in DNA cloning, Western blotting, immunoprecipitation, CRISPR gene editing are desirable.• Experience in image analysis is desirable.• Track record of publication in international peer-reviewed journals.• A thorough approach to laboratory practice, accurate record-keeping, attention to detail and compliance with all regulatory requirements.• Ability to work cooperatively with a wide variety of people within a research environment.• Ability to work independently, without direct supervision, set priorities and allocate own timetable.• Enthusiastic and self-motivated, and committed to a research career in the biological sciences.Further detailsThis is a full-time, fixed-term position for 36 months and is available from 1 March 2019.Applications quoting reference number 1900186 will close on Thursday, 14 March 2019.

8360| Ghent University, Mechanics of Materials and Structures| Postdoctoral vacancy (2 years) on high-frequency vibration techniques for non-destructive inspection of 3D printed metal parts| The use of 3D printed metal structures is taking a very fast ramp-up in industry. General Electric has demonstrated the possibility of printing titanium fuel injectors for their LEAP engine, EADS has printed a nacelle hinge bracket for the Airbus A320, Boeing is printing plastic inlet ducts for high-altitude aircrafts, hip implants and other prosthetics are exploiting the design freedom of additive manufacturing (AM),..Additive manufacturing of titanium alloys yields great potential for the aerospace industry (and others) as it allows the generation of geometrically complex structures with high specific strength, low density and high corrosion resistance. However the inspection of such 3D printed components is almost impossible with traditional Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques because of the typical complex geometries and internal cavities. A very interesting alternative is PCRT (Process Compensated Resonance Testing), a high-frequency vibration technique that tries to detect defects by evaluating relative shifts in the resonance spectrum.In this postdoctoral position, it is the purpose to devise and build an upgraded PCRT set-up for inspecting 3D printed metal parts with complex geometry, to implement data-acquisition and to develop advanced post-processing tools for identification of small defects in the frequency domain. You will closely collaborate with another postdoctoral research in our group, as well as with several large industries (Materialise, Siemens and Vibrant). This postdoctoral position is partially funded by SIM-Flanders (Strategic Initiative Materials in Flanders).Only candidates with a PhD degree or equivalent experience should apply. The candidate should have a strong experimental background in vibration techniques and data analysis in frequency domain.
