PhD position in Bioinformatics: Developmental And Reproductive Toxicity pathway

The Computational Systems Biology group led by prof. Vera van Noort is interested in understanding biological systems as a whole. We try to achieve this through computational analysis of large-scale data generated by the ever growing number of new technologies that can systematically measure the behavior of multiple cellular components, such as biochemical activities, biophysical properties, subcellular localization and interaction. We use and develop new methods to integrate, visualize and query the large amounts of information available and in such a way come to new biological discoveries.

Theconservation of molecular pathways of several test species has been mappedagainst humans as reference, using automatically derived orthologousrelationships stored in the ENSEMBL comparative genomics database. We foundthat orthology prediction suffers from many shortcomings, especially forevolutionary more distant species such as D.rerio (zebrafish), C. elegans andD. discoideum that provideinteresting alternative test species. We have shown that to obtain realisticorthology relationships additional genomes should be included and high qualityphylogenetic reconstructions are necessary.

Profile
MSc in Bioinformatics/Computational biology with experience in phylogenetic reconstruction, python programming, high-performance computing and omics data visualization.

If you are a bioinformatician with an interest in applying your knowledge of phylogenetics, omics data integration and data visualization to a societally relevant problem, please send your cv and at least two reference letters to vera.vannoort@kuleuven.be

PhD Studentship: Biological Science (Proteomics)

Allergies to small organic chemicals are a public health concern and can manifest themselves in a variety of clinical outcomes. For example, allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a T-cell mediated, delayed hypersensitivity that typically results in skin symptoms, which can be severe but not life-threatening. By contrast, chemical respiratory and drug allergies can be IgE-mediated and potentially fatal. What drives the subsequent divergent immunological outcomes i.e. the differences in the main effector responses associated with skin and respiratory sensitisation is unknown.

In collaboration with Unilever PLC, this research project capitalises on novel proteomic techniques recently developed at the UoS to characterise both the proteins modified and the MHC peptide antigens presented after sensitiser exposure. This programme of research presents an exciting opportunity to investigate and elucidate the differences in effector responses between skin and respiratory sensitisation at the molecular level. Working within a research team based within the Centre for Proteomic Research, the successful student will develop expertise in using the latest techniques in proteomics, immunopeptidome analysis and bioinformatics.

The project is funded for 3 years and welcomes applicants from the UK and EU who have or expect to obtain at least an upper second class degree or students recently completing a Master’s degree in Biological Sciences or allied subjects. Funding will cover fees and an enhanced annual stipend.

Application Deadline: 25th October 2018

The department is integrated within the natural sciences campus of the University of Zurich, the largest University in Switzerland and one of Europe`s leading research centers that offers several excellent core technology facilities such the Function Genomics Center, the Imaging and Flow Cytometry Center and the Animal Facilities.

Your PhD thesis project deals with the role of the ADP-ribosyltransferase ARTD1 in the modulation of the inflammatory response of individual immune cell types. This is important to understand because inhibitors of ADP-ribosylation (so-called PARP inhibitors) are currently used in cancer treatment and have been also found to suppress inflammatory conditions, but the mechanistic pathway is still not well understood.

We are thus seeking a highly-motivated individual with prior experience with cell culture work and if possible in mass spectrometry or computational sciences and willingness to perform in vivo experiments. The applicant should be an independent thinker and problem-solver who is willing to work in a team, and accept new challenges arising from working in a high-paced scientific environment. The applicant should also have good communication and writing skills, a curiosity-driven attitude and demonstrate enthusiasm and flexibility.

The successful applicant will be expected to support the ongoing research focus of the Hottiger group and will take part in ongoing activities focused on bioinformatics analysis of mass spectrometry data of cultured cells or tissues (human and mouse).

11 PhD student positions in the field of Regulatory Genomics

Complex developmental processes enable an organism to differentiate a multitude of cell types from one genome, and they are encoded in intricate gene regulatory mechanisms. The completion of the human genome provided a starting point for deciphering the code that controls gene regulation, from its context in three-dimensional chromosome folding to how specific transcription factors act, and finally, to its product as RNA or protein.

In an alliance between Berlin institutions (led by Humboldt University) and Duke University, the DFG-funded international research training group (IRTG2403) aims to teach the next generation of researchers a quantitative understanding of genome function and gene regulation within the context of biological systems.

Combining experimental and computational approaches, we provide opportunities for PhD students to work in three complementary areas:

  • High-throughput genomics and editing
  • Computational biology and machine learning
  • Developmental systems biology

Doctoral researchers obtain a significant amount of their training at the partner institution, thereby benefitting from the synergy and expertise at both sites. They are co-advised by computational and biological experts from both sides of the Atlantic throughout their training.

15 PhDs in experimental and computational sciences: Polymers in the Liver

To advance diagnostics and treatment of metabolic diseases beyond the state-of-the-art, a new generation of scientists is needed. The complexity of the metabolic network and its aberrant behaviour in disease require truly interdisciplinary researchers, trained in the three ‘pillars of Systems Medicine’: experimental, computational and clinical research. PoLiMeR aims to train you as a talented PhD student in this field. We bring together clinical, academic, and industrial experts on inherited metabolic diseases, computational modelling of the entire human metabolism, organ-on-chip technology, and detailed metabolic profiling, located in Germany, Luxembourg, Sweden, Norway, and the United Kingdom.

Metabolic diseases are a burden on the European population and health care system. It is increasingly recognised that individual differences with respect to history, lifestyle, and genetic make-up affect disease progression and treatment response. A Systems Medicine approach, based on computational models fed with individual patient data, has the potential to provide the basis for a personalised diagnosis and treatment strategy. The PoLiMeR consortium has identified the inherited, liver-related diseases of glycogen and lipid metabolism as the ideal starting point for innovative research training in personalised ‘Systems Medicine’.

What do we need

  • A(n) (almost) completed master’s degree in a discipline relevant to the PhD position(s) for which you apply
  • Strong motivation for scientific research in an interdisciplinary and international environment
  • Excellent English presentation and writing skills
  • Good organizational and communication skills, being a team-player

PhD in biology: Genetics of long-distance migration

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

It is firmly established that the migratory program of naïve song birds is genetically hard-wired. But which genes that encode for variation in migratory direction, distance and timing are yet to be identified. This research is now possible due to the rapidly improving methods in genomic ecology and by the possibilities to obtain details of the migratory path by using light-level geolocators. An excellent model for these questions is the willow warbler with its three subspecies that show remarkably different migratory patterns.

We seek a bright and highly motivated candidate with strong interest in this particular project. The successful applicant should have a Master degree in Biology, with specialization in migration ecology or molecular ecology. The candidate must have documented experience of species identification and capturing of wild passerine birds. A valid driving licence is essential for carrying out the project. The candidate should also have good analytical skills as well as good oral and written communication skills in English.

Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.

PhD Studentship in  Proteomics

The University of Southampton and Biological Sciences both hold an Athena Swan Silver Award, respectively, demonstrating their commitment to provide equal opportunities and to advance the representation of women in STEM/M subjects: science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.

Allergies to small organic chemicals are a public health concern and can manifest themselves in a variety of clinical outcomes. For example, allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) is a T-cell mediated, delayed hypersensitivity that typically results in skin symptoms, which can be severe but not life-threatening. By contrast, chemical respiratory and drug allergies can be IgE-mediated and potentially fatal.

In collaboration with Unilever PLC, this research project capitalises on novel proteomic techniques recently developed at the UoS to characterise both the proteins modified and the MHC peptide antigens presented after sensitiser exposure. This programme of research presents an exciting opportunity to investigate and elucidate the differences in effector responses between skin and respiratory sensitisation at the molecular level.

The project is funded for 3 years and welcomes applicants from the UK and EU who have or expect to obtain at least an upper second class degree in Biological Sciences or allied subjects. Funding will cover fees and an enhanced stipend of £ 17,777 per annum for 2018/19.

Two SNF-funded PhD positions in NK cell biology and hypoxia research

Organ fibrosis as well as tumor progression show pathological features that are reminiscent of a classical wound healing response. Tissue fibrosis that is characterized by excessive scarring and extracellular matrix deposition after tissue injury is nowadays considered as an aberrant and excessive wound healing response. Likewise, the tumor microenvironment is often referred to as the "never healing wound" and certain tumor types exhibit excessive extracellular matrix deposition and massive fibrosis.

Hypoxia-inducible transcription factors (HIFs) are central mediators of cellular adaptation to low oxygen (hypoxia). NK cells are key for immune surveillance in cancer and pre-cancerous types of organ fibrosis, due to unique cytotoxic properties. Our recent results indicate that HIF-deficiency imroves NK cell immune surveillance. We, therefore, hypothesize first, that HIF signaling is critical for NK cell performance, and second, that manipulating the HIF pathway in NK cells is a novel therapeutic target in cancer and organ fibrosis.

Upon start, applicants must have a completed master’s degree in biology, medicine or any related science field, preferably with a certain degree of specialization in immunology or tumor biology/fibrosis research. In addition to standard methods, applicants must be willing to familiarize with sophisticated immunologic assays, mass cytometry as well as animal models of cancer and organ fibrosis. Candidates should be capable to adopt methods from other science fields (e.g. bioinformatic approaches). A high degree of flexibility and dedication to the project will be mandatory.

ESR (Early Stage Researcher) position for 36 months at Medical Research Council Cancer Unit, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK

The Frezza laboratory focuses on understanding the role of the mitochondrial enzyme and component of the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle Fumarate Hydratase in tumorigenesis. We have recently demonstrated that fumarate, accumulated in FH-deficient cells, elicits a powerful epigenetic reprogramming that leads to the suppression of miRNA200, and induction of epithelial¿to-mesenchymal transition (Sciacovelli et al, Nature 2016). This epigenetic and phenotypic switch makes FH-deficient cells more motile and invasive, predisposing to metastasis. Although we demonstrated that fumarate has a role as epigenetic modifier, its effects on chromatin structure and function are still unknown. This project will help to elucidate the link between TCA cycle dysfunction, accumulation of fumarate, and downstream epigenetic changes involved in tumorigenesis. To this aim the ESR will investigate the hypothesis that fumarate controls the activity of histone and DNA demethylases involved in DNA and histone methylation, causing broad epigenetic changes. The ESR will first generate a 3D cellular model of FH-deficiency by deleting FH in human renal cell lines obtained using CRISPR technology.

PhD program starting date: 01/10/2017

Required Educational Level  Degree: Applicants should hold a Masters level Degree in Biological Sciences in the field of Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Cancer Biology.

PhD studentship in Biomedicine

Project: Investigation into the impact and effect of systemic iron deficiency, and iron repletion, on skeletal muscle function

 The work will involve the mechanistic role of iron and its function in tissues. Iron has two important functions: assisting in the manufacture of blood cells to transport oxygen, as well as providing key ingredients in the cellular ‘power house’ (mitochondria) that uses oxygen to generate energy for muscles. New intravenous (IV) iron treatments are available, enabling full treatment in a single infusion. IV iron is known to be efficacious for correcting iron deficiency with or without anaemia, but we do not know if overall fitness and skeletal muscle function is improved. Furthermore, we do not know the mechanism of how ID, anaemia or treatments thereof may impact iron repletion on tissues.

Person Specification

•A good (First or Upper Second Class Bachelor’s) degree in a biomedical or pharmacological subjects (or equivalent EU/overseas degree), and ideally an MSc in a related area.

•An interest in iron deficiency, anaemia and mitochondrial biochemistry, and a desire to learn more.

•Strong analytical/statistical skills.

•Enthusiastic, organised with good communication skills - especially in written English.

•A strong work ethic, with the ability to think creatively and work independently.

•Develop pre-clinical models of iron deficiency and anaemia under the direction of Professor Toby Richards and Dr Anna Butcher.

E-cigaratte use in pregnancy and diabetes PhD scholarship

One in four Australian adults has either type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance. Cigarette smoking increases the risk of diabetes. E-cigarettes are seen as the new safe alternative to tobacco cigarettes, but our preliminary studies would suggest otherwise. This PhD project (in collaboration with A/Prof Brian Oliver) will evaluate the risks posed by maternal vaping upon the development of diabetes in model systems. The results will inform the community of the risks that e-cigarette use has, and ultimately reduce the morbidity and mortality of diabetes.

Essential qualifications 
H1 Honours or equivalent (H2 Honours with 1 year post qualification research experience / Research Masters).

How to apply
Open only to Australian Residents or Citizens for commencement anytime between March - August 2017.  Applicants are encouraged to phone Dr Hui Chen on 9514 1328 prior to applying. Send your CV and a half page expression of interest to: Dr Hui Chen.

Epigenetics of chlamydial infection PhD scholarship

Chlamydial infections and their associated diseases are often asymptomatic and severe disease outcomes can take years to manifest. This project will apply bioinformatic analysis of high-throughput sequencing data to gain insights into fundamental chlamydial biology and disease pathogenesis by epigenetic dysregulation of the human genome. Epigenetically dysregulated genes may facilitate chlamydial pathogenesis and disease progression, either by direct chlamydial interference or by innate responses, and may be candidate biomarkers of infection or disease.
Desirable skills and qualifications
  • Expertise in programming (R, Python or similar), data visualisation and/or computational biology;
  • Open to international and domestic students for commencement in 2017.

How to apply

Send your CV and a half page expression of interest to: Associate Professor Garry Myers.
Applicants for the scholarship must also apply to be admitted to the PhD degree at UTS.
Applications close: 15 March 2017
