(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  Postdoctoral Researcher in Spatial Transcriptional Regulation

Spatial tumor-immune interactions are key determinants of therapy responses in ovarian cancer. Our aim is to identify the spatial transcriptional regulation of tumor cell states that drive chemoresistance in ovarian cancer. In this project, we will integrate multiplexed single-cell spatial proteomics, transcriptomics and chromatin states using unique novel spatial technologies and analytical methods. The two EMBL groups have highly synergistic approaches enabling an unprecedented analysis and exploitation of rich spatial multi-omics datasets generated in a unique prospective clinical trial (NCT06117384). The results will pave the way for the development of more effective treatments for ovarian cancer patients.

Deadline :  May 31, 2024.

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc summary/title: Post-doctoral researcher in digital humanities

This position is based at the newly founded Multimodality Research Group in the Department of Languages and funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant awarded to Associate Professor Tuomo Hiippala. The project develops novel methods and resources for studying multimodality, or how human communication naturally combines multiple ‘modes’ of expression. These methods and resources are used to develop empirically founded theories of multimodal communication in the domain of everyday cultural artefacts. The data studied in the project includes, for example, school textbooks, user-generated explanation videos on social media, news broadcasts, instruction manuals and online newspapers.

Deadline : May 1, 2024.

(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher in Structural Biology

The research in this project is focused on structural biology and biophysics of protein interactions in neuronal synapse function and in regulation of synapse loss in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) by the complement system (see e.g Chernyaeva et al. EMBO Reports (2023)). We have long standing interest in complement research (e.g. Kajander et al. PNAS (2011); Bhattacharjee et al. J Biol Chem (2013)), and synaptic adhesion (e.g. Karki et al. Sci Reports (2020), Kim et al. PNAS (2022)). Other projects in the group focus currently e.g. on endoplasmic reticulum stress response regulation, and overall on the HiLIFE protein crystallization core facility operation and related projects.

The successful candidate will work on protein production and molecular interaction studies of complement proteins protective of neuronal synapses in AD, in collaboration with Dr. Karita Haapasalo’s group at the medical faculty. Specifically, protein-protein interactions of complement proteins and ApoE and synaptic proteins will be studied biophysically, biochemically, and by structural biology methods to visualize at the atomic level the protein interactions involved in the complement function at the synapse in disease states.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Genomics and Machine Learning

Human tumors are characterized by recurrent mutations in the well-defined cancer driver genes, but also non-mutational epigenetic reprogramming and phenotypic plasticity controlled by transcription factors (TF) are important contributors to tumorigenesis. Extensive consortium efforts have mapped the mutational and epigenetic landscapes of human cancers. However, the commonly used epigenomics methods such as ChIP-seq are correlative in nature and report a lot of spurious sites that might not be linked to gene expression, highlighting the need for novel innovative approaches to understand cancer genome and epigenome. Here, we will utilize cutting-edge long-read nanopore sequencing combined with deep machine learning approaches to model the epigenetic changes and mutational mechanisms in cancers originating from endodermal tissues. The goal is to reveal novel mechanistic details about the development of human cancer.

Deadline : 31st of May 2024

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher in bioimage informatics and machine learning

Pyramidal neurons in the mammalian cortex use complex dendrites to integrate input from diverse brain regions in a parallel manner. To enable parallel processing, local intracellular organelles involved in synaptic metabolism such as the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and mitochondria are fine-tuned to local synaptic function. So far, we do not have a complete landscape of ER and mitochondria distribution in individual neurons. This project will 1) mine existing electron microscopy (EM) connectomics databases to reconstruct the ER and mitochondria landscape for individual cortical pyramidal neurons and investigate this organelle landscape in relation to known electrophysiological features of individual neurons.

Deadline : 31st of May 2024

About The University of Helsinki, Finland – Official Website

The University of Helsinki  is a university located in Helsinki, Finland since 1829, but founded in the city of Turku (in Swedish Åbo) in 1640 as the Royal Academy of Åbo, at that time part of the Swedish Empire. It is the oldest and largest university in Finland with the widest range of disciplines available. In 2018, around 31,200 students were enrolled in the degree programs of the university spread across 11 faculties and 11 research institutes.

As of 1 August 2005, the university complies with the harmonized structure of the Europe-wide Bologna Process and offers bachelor, master, licenciate, and doctoral degrees. Admission to degree programmes is usually determined by entrance examinations, in the case of bachelor’s degrees, and by prior degree results, in the case of master and postgraduate degrees. Entrance is particularly selective (circa 15% of the yearly applicants are admitted). It has been ranked a top 100 university in the world according to the 2016 ARWU, QS and THE rankings.

The university is bilingual, with teaching by law provided both in Finnish and Swedish. Since Swedish, albeit an official language of Finland, is a minority language, Finnish is by far the dominating language at the university. Teaching in English is extensive throughout the university at master, licentiate, and doctoral levels, making it a de facto third language of instruction.

Remaining true to its traditionally strong Humboldtian ethos, the University of Helsinki places heavy emphasis on high-quality teaching and research of a top international standard. It is a member of various prominent international university networks, such as Europaeum, UNICA, the Utrecht Network, and is a founding member of the League of European Research Universities.
