The Epigenetics and post-transcriptional gene regulation group uses molecular, cellular, proteomic and computational approaches to address how epigenetic responses at repetitive genomic regions influence post-transcriptional gene regulation. Our goal is to establish what role such responses play in phenotypic outcomes driven by environmental exposures during early mammalian development. The purpose of the proposed research project is to develop transgenic mammalian cell models that recapitulate environmentally driven epigenetic responses. This will provide a suite of cell lines in which to explore the downstream consequences of these genotype-epigenetic interactions which will be evaluated in comparison with ex vivo derived models.

Purdue University, Agronomy|
Postdoctoral Research Associate Plant Genomics|
Postdoctoral Research Associate PositionResearch involves genomic and phenotypic approaches in the genetic study of maize tassel and ear inflorescence architecture. Funding is from a multi-institutional NSF Plant Genome Research Program grant on natural variation and drought responses in developing maize inflorescences. Different approaches are being pursued. Fine mapping of tassel branch number and ear row number QTL using heterozygous inbred families (HIFs) derived from the Nested Association Mapping Population (NAM) has been performed and has precisely defined a number of QTL intervals. A large phenotypic dataset of inflorescence architectural traits has been collected on the Ames panel of over 2500 maize inbreds grown in multiple environments and is ready for Genome Wide Association Study and Genomic Prediction analyses. The two genetic resources are complementary as candidate genes in fine mapping intervals will be tested on the Ames panel through GWAS. This might involve some gene specific marker development for candidate gene analysis as needed. There will be some interaction with the drought stress experiments on inflorescence development. The position is based in Department of Agronomy at Purdue University. Travel to the annual grant group meeting is likely. Gaining a better understanding the genetic basis of inflorescence architecture will complement studies on effects of early season drought on developing inflorescences, and recovery response of inflorescences when drought treatment ends. Qualifications: A Phd is required, with flexibility in discipline, which could be an agricultural, statistical, or biological area. A strong background in statistics and quantitative genetics is one suitable background. A strong background in molecular genetics and wet lab skills and experimentation is also suitable. Other backgrounds and willingness to learn is also suitable. The project will involve statistical analysis of marker based data with field phenotypic data, thus opportunity to learn and grow in the area you have less expertise. There is good opportunity to attend workshops and short courses to learn complementary needed skills and expertise.To apply, please send resume and names, email and telephone number of three references to Torbert Rocheford, Department of Agronomy, Purdue University, [email protected]
Any questions, please feel free to send an email or call 765-494-9243, or cell 217 417 5093. Applications are being taken now and will be considered until a suitable candidate is identified. Purdue is an equal opportunity employer.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant|
A Postdoctoral Research Assistant position is available at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) as part of a large (£3.7M) multi-institute research programme led by The National Oceanography Centre and funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The programme “Controls over Ocean Mesopelagic Interior Carbon Storage (COMICS)” seeks to understand the long-term fate of carbon in the ocean as that is key to understanding Earth’s climate.This particular research position will focus on respiration coupled to particulate organic carbon (e.g. marine-snow and aggregates) and how that is linked to the cycling of nitrogen which ultimately controls primary production. You will work within the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at QMUL under the direct supervision of Prof. Mark Trimmer but will also collaborate with Dr. Phyllis Lam at the University of Southampton. The field work will take place at sea during two cruises on board UK research vessels: one in late 2017, in the southern ocean, and another in mid-2018 in the south Atlantic. You will make direct, fine-scale measurements of oxygen consumption and apply a suite of 15N isotopes to characterise both nitrification and the production of N2O and N2 and all of which will be supplemented by characterisation of the abundance and expression of key functional genes. The ideal candidate for this position should have a PhD in biogeochemistry or a related field, together with significant PDRA experience of respiration and the application of 15N isotopes. Experience at sea and/or demanding field-work would be desirable, as would a modest track record of peer-reviewed papers. The project will involve extensive periods of up to 42 days at sea and the ability to be resourceful and self-reliant is essential. This is a full-time, fixed term post available for 24 months with a likely start date of 1st June 2017.

Aggregation of Polyglutamine Tracts Driven by httNT α-helices|
Huntington is a lethal inherited disease with symptoms of the cognitive and psychiatric disorder. It is the most common form of polyglutamine aggregation related diseases. At a molecular level, the disease is associated with the aggregation of polyglutamine tracts resulting from the heavy enzymatic cleavage of Huntingtin. The seventeen amino acid httNT segment, attached to the N-terminal of polyglutamine tract, has a slight tendency towards α-helix structure and is believed to be playing an important role in the aggregation of polyglutamine tracts. In comparison to the dominant β-strand templated protein aggregation mechanism, the α-helix driven aggregation is not commonly seen. In this project, our primary goal is to use both all-atom and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations to test the validity of httNT driven aggregation mechanism of polyglutamine tracts which is based on the current experimental findings. The project will involve both simulations with currently available models and also aim to develop new coarse-grained models which can capture the conformational dynamics and flexibility of the underlying system. Postdoctoral Researcher: Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics, physical chemistry, material science, chemical engineering, or a related field. Prior experience in the field of theory or simulations of soft/biological matter will be an advantage. Applications must include the following documents.- CV- Summary of past research- Statement of research interests- Contact details of at least 2 scientific referees
