Epigenetic Regulation of Plant Stem Cells|
We are seeking highly motivated postdoc candidates to investigate how stem cells in the root meristem sense and adopt to environmental changes. A specific focus will be on the epigenetic regulation of stem cells during this process. Background: Unlike most animals, plants can grow and form new organs throughout their life, which in the case of some long-lived trees can last for more than thousand year. The cells for this are supplied by pluripotent stem cells in the proliferative centers plants, the meristems. In addition to their longevity, plant growth and thus stem cell activity must adjust to environmental signals, such as season, light, water and nutrient supply. How active stem cells can be maintained for such a long time and accurately form new organs and how they can sense and adopt to environmental conditions is a central question for both, stem cell biology and agriculture. Our group previously has shown that the stem cells of the shoot meristem are regulated by a local negatively feedback look between the transcription factor WUSCHEL (WUS) and the signaling peptide CLAVATA3 (Mayer at al, Cell 1998; Schoof et al, Cell 2000). We also found that the root meristem functions in a similar way, expressing the WUS homolog WOX5 (Sarkar et al., Nature 2007). WOX5 is required to maintain the stem cells forming the gravity sensing columella pluripotent but also can reprogram already differentiated cell to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). The way WOX5 work is that it changes the chromatin of the stem cells by recruiting a histone modifying enzyme to the DNA of its target genes, and as consequence, the Chromatin becomes compacted and the genes silenced (Pi et al., Developmental Cell, 2015). The columella stem cells are a prefect model to study stem cell regulation, because it consists only of three cells types, the niche cells, called quiescent center, that signal to maintain stem cells pluripotent, the dividing stem cells, and their differentiated daughter cells, the gravity sensing columella cells. The root stem cells must adopt to a number of abiotic and biotic environmental challenges including drought, flooding, nutrient shortage, soil contamination but also bacteria and fungus infections. Understanding how stem cells cope with these conditions to maintain root growth is not only of highest importance to stem cell biology, but also for agriculture, especially considering the global climate change.Goal: Understand how the genetic and epigenetic networks that regulates stem cells are affected and respond to environmental signals to cope with adverse conditions.Methods: In addition to standard genetic and molecular tools, the projects utilizes a novel microfluidic technology that is developed together with our engineering partners. This set up allows to simulate environment conditions with simultaneous 3-dimensional live imaging of cells and of fluorescent reporter proteins. Transcriptome, chromatin, and live imaging data will be combined to create models of how regulatory networks of stem cells cope with changing environmental conditions. We will test the role of specific genes by creating CRISPR/CAS9 induced mutants and comparing how environmental adaptation changed compared to wild type. Results will finally be used to formulate breeding concepts with our collaborators at the Shandong Agricultural University in Tai'an (China) to improve root growth under adverse conditions, such as drought or compromised soil.Lab detailsThe lab language is English. German is not required. For further information, also on our publications, please visit our homepage (www.biologie.uni-freiburg.de/LauxLab).

Postdoctoral Training Fellow – Computer Vision|
We seek a Postdoctoral Training Fellow to join the Yuan lab at The Institute of Cancer Research, London (ICR) and work on the TRACERx project, the largest study of lung cancer evolution in a collaboration with Prof. Charles Swanton at the Francis Crick Institute. The main focus of the Yuan lab is to develop new computational approaches for studying cancer by fusing computer vision, machine learning and bioinformatics (www.yuanlab.org). Different from traditional cancer-centric approaches, we study cancer from a novel perspective: as evolving ecosystems. Aided by technological advances, we use ecological principles to help us understand why cancer is so difficult to treat – by studying not only cancer cells but also normal cells around them – and discover new ways to target these diseases, akin to draining the swamps to get rid of mosquitoes as one way of eradicating malaria. This is a rare opportunity to collaborate with the world-leading Swanton team and several major universities and hospitals in the UK. Together we aim to reveal the evolutionary dynamics of lung cancer in this pioneering study. You will lead the development of new histology image analysis system for lung cancer. We expect this exciting project to enable the discovery of new biomarkers and clinical innovations to change the way we treat lung cancer.You will join a team of computer scientists, physicists, and mathematicians, working closely with clinicians in the vibrant centre of cancer research discovery and therapeutics at ICR London in the endeavour to cure cancer. You will enjoy the highly collaborative nature of this project, have the opportunities to learn about the latest biotechnologies and travel to conferences, and excel in coordinating between programming and broadening horizons in medicine.ICR were ranked first in the Times Higher Education league table of UK university research quality from the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) for our high impact publications.

Medical Research Council, Toxicology Unit|
MRC Postdoctoral Scientist|
MRC Postdoctoral Scientist Medical Research Council -Toxicology Unit, LeicesterSalary range: £30,162 - £31,099 per annum plus allowances*Fixed term for three years (funded by BBSRC)We are looking to appoint a postdoctoral scientist specialising in RNA biology and biochemical techniques to join the MicroRNA Regulation of Gene Expression Group led by Prof. Martin Bushell to work on a project to determine the mechanism by which microRNAs control gene-expression.MicroRNAs have emerged as a major mechanism of gene regulation in metazoans, controlling the expression of approximately 60% of all protein encoding genes. These non-coding RNA molecules are ~21 nucleotides in length and exert their activity by base-pairing with specific mRNAs (normally within the 3'UTR) inhibiting gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. Since their discovery, numerous studies have documented the fundamental roles of these small RNA molecules in virtually all aspects of life and disease. However, the mechanisms by which these molecules function to repress gene-expression has remained unclear and controversial. The aims of this project are to resolve and understand the mechanistic heart of the miRNA-repression apparatus, to finally understand how repression is achieved. Using a variety of biochemical approaches you will investigate the role of the helicases in miRNA-repression, the goal being to reconstitute the repressive hub and determine the role of the helicases in this process using an array of RNA-Seq experiments and molecular biology approaches.You will have been awarded (or in the final stages of obtaining) a PhD in biological sciences, have experience in RNA-Seq methodologies, cloning, western blotting, qPCR and immunoprecipitation. Experience of mammalian tissue culture, in vitro RNA synthesis, and bioinformatics would be an advantage. You will be committed to working at a highly competitive level, able to communicate scientific ideas effectively and have published (or about to publish) in a peer-reviewed journal.The Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit, located at the University of Leicester, is an internationally renowned institution delivering field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease. The Unit is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and offers excellent opportunities for postdoctoral development. The Unit is expected to relocate to the University of Cambridge during 2019.Choosing to come to work at the MRC means that you will have access to a whole host of benefits from a final salary pension scheme and excellent holiday entitlement to access to employee shopping/travel discounts and salary sacrifice cycle to work scheme and childcare vouchers, as well as the chance to put the MRC on your CV in the future.For full details of this post and to complete an online application, visit https://mrc.tal.net/vx/lang-en-GB/appcentre-1/candidate/postings/480 and upload your CV along with a covering letter. Please quote reference TOX 439.Closing date for applications: 28 February 2017The MRC is an Equal Opportunities Employer. Final appointments will be subject to pre-employment screening.The MRC Toxicology Unit is a member of Athena Swan.* For those who have only recently completed their doctoral studies (or who may be more experienced and moving into a new research discipline or with limited experience of key transferable skills) you will be given the choice upon appointment of undertaking the MRC Post-Doctoral Training Scheme which provides you with personal allowances of £1,000 initial settlement plus an annual training allowance of £850 increasing to £1,300 in year two, and £1,800 in the third year.
