(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in Human Neuroscience

This Academy of Medical Sciences-funded research project aims to assess innovative, non-invasive measures of anti-seizure medication (ASM) efficacy in the cerebral cortex using advanced transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technology. The objective is to validate these measures’ sensitivity to ASMs targeting voltage-gated sodium channels, potentially facilitating objective treatment monitoring and adjustment in patients, as well as evaluating ASM efficacy in drug development trials. This research, conducted with healthy individuals, will inform future studies involving epilepsy patients.  

The successful candidate will join Dr. Hannah’s lab, specialising in non-invasive transcranial brain stimulation and basic neuroscience methods (electromyography, EMG; electroencephalography, EGG; reflex testing) to investigate cortical, brainstem, and spinal neurophysiology. The project is supported by Prof. Mark Richardson, whose lab studies people with epilepsy and the mechanisms underlying seizure onset. The work will be conducted in the Centre for Human and Applied Physiological Sciences laboratories on Guy’s Campus of King’s College London.

(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate

The School of Security Studies wishes to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on a pilot of the Second World War ‘Forces Record Project’ (FRP). The post is available full time from June/July 2024 on a fixed-term basis for 8 months.

The FRP is funded by a grant from the National Army Museum (NAM), with the postholder working alongside the Principal Investigator, Prof. Jonathan Fennell, Co-Investigator, Prof. Niall Barr, King’s Digital Lab, the team at NAM and stakeholders at the National Archives, the Ministry of Defence and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

By making use of a sample of personnel records from the Second World War, the eight-month pilot aims to conduct a proof of concept for a wider study exploring the social processes of fighting a ‘people’s war’.

The wars of the Twentieth Century generated unprecedented quantities of data. Military attestation and demobilisation forms contained information on subjects as varied as address, height, pre-enlistment occupations, ethnicity and service histories. Yet, the manner in which the processes of mobilisation and remobilisation affected communities, the social composition of forces, and their ability to function effectively, is still incompletely understood. The armed and auxiliary forces were not static social groupings; they were organisations characterised by constant change and the making and breaking of social networks.

Deadline : 02 May 2024.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate

The Basant group, funded by a grant from the Wellcome Trust, seeks to understand how tyrosine phosphatases regulate cell signalling. This large family of enzymes has been highly understudied compared to its kinase counterpart. We investigate these phosphatases in the context of signalling to the actin cytoskeleton and in virus-infected cells.

The researcher appointed will focus on candidate phosphatases that have been validated to regulate actin dynamics during infection with the poxvirus Vaccinia. How do these phosphatases function, what are their key interactors, how do they recognise substrates, how do they impact signalling dynamics and outputs? The broader goal is to contextualise these findings in uninfected cells and, with the help of a collaborator, in other viral infections. The researcher appointed will take advantage of, and further develop, a Vaccinia virus-based signalling platform, as well as cutting-edge molecule counting and optogenetics tools available in the lab. Experience in phosphatase biology, microscopy, cell signalling or biochemistry is desirable but not mandatory.

A PhD in a relevant discipline is required (or applicant to be near completion). A high-quality publication record and effective science communication skills are essential. International applicants are welcome.  

Deadline :16 June 2024.

(14) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: KTP Research Associate in Cybersecurity of the Kubernetes Platform

The Department of Informatics is looking to appoint a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to join our team for a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project, jointly funded by Innovate UK, ControlPlane and King’s College London. In this exciting role, you will bridge the gap between academia and industry, applying formal methods to real-world security challenges in the Cloud Native space: you will be working on KubeSec-AFM, a prototype to formally assess the security posture of Kubernetes clusters.

Kubernetes is a Cloud Native technology that is changing the way software applications are deployed and run in Cloud by providing automated deployment, scaling and management capabilities. Therefore, ensuring its security is critical. Existing methods to ensure Kubernetes’ security rely on maintaining databases of human expertise, cyber-attacks, and platform misconfigurations. However, it is currently impossible to compile a complete list of potential risks to guarantee that teams can securely use Kubernetes. This may leave critical Cloud infrastructure exposed. The main aim of this job is to use formal methods to assess Kubernetes security and enable companies to optimise cost and risk and ensure the security of critical cloud infrastructure.

About King’s College London, United Kingdom – Official Website

King’s College London (informally King’s or KCL) is a public research university located in London, United Kingdom, and a founding college and member institution of the federal University of London. King’s was established in 1829 by King George IV and Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, when it received its first royal charter (as a university college), and is one of the oldest universities in England. In 1836, King’s became one of the two founding colleges of the University of London. In the late 20th century, King’s grew through a series of mergers, including with Queen Elizabeth College and Chelsea College of Science and Technology (in 1985), the Institute of Psychiatry (in 1997), the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals and the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery (in 1998).

King’s has five campuses: its historic Strand Campus in central London, three other Thames-side campuses (Guy’s, St Thomas’ and Waterloo) nearby and one in Denmark Hill in south London. It also has a presence in Shrivenham for its professional military education and in Newquay, Cornwall, where its information service centre is based. In 2019/20, King’s had a total income of £964.3 million, of which £200.5 million was from research grants and contracts. It has the fourth largest endowment of any university in the United Kingdom, and the largest of any in London. It is the 12th largest university in the United Kingdom by total enrolment. Its academic activities are organised into nine faculties, which are subdivided into numerous departments, centres, and research divisions.

It is a member of academic organisations including the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the European University Association, and the Russell Group. King’s is home to six Medical Research Council centres and is a founding member of the King’s Health Partners academic health sciences centre, Francis Crick Institute and MedCity. It is the largest European centre for graduate and post-graduate medical teaching and biomedical research, by number of students, and includes the world’s first nursing school, the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery. King’s is at times regarded as part of the “golden triangle” of universities located in the cities of Oxford, Cambridge and London.
