Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  ​​UK DRI Research Associate in the Department of Basic & Clinical Neuroscience – INTERNAL ONLY

Dr Sarah Marzi is seeking to appoint a Research Associate, her research programme aims to determine the role of epigenetic regulation in neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s disease, using state of the art epigenetic and genomic techniques in cell populations and at the single cell level. Specifically, we seek to identify an epigenetic link between non-coding genetic and environmental risk in dementia and identify mechanisms by which these risk factors make cells susceptible to neurodegeneration.  

The successful candidate should have substantial experience in the analysis of epigenetic and transcriptomic data, particularly chromatin profiling to lead on research identifying disease-linked epigenetic regulation in post-mortem brain samples. Experience with bioinformatic analyses more generally and use of a high-performance computing cluster will be essential. You will be a dynamic, creative, and motivated scientist interested in pursuing questions deeply. With strong molecular biology knowledge and experience with genomic/epigenomic approaches, you will use a range of methods for brain tissue analyses including next generation RNA sequencing, ChIP sequencing and CUT&Tag/TIP-seq (or equivalent) and ATAC sequencing methods. Reproducibility is of particular importance to the Marzi lab, and experience with version control, github, and/or interactive/annotated reporting with a markup language will be a plus.

(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Clinical Psychologist

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a new Wellcome Trust funded Discovery Award to examine prediction of clinical outcome. A key psychological mechanism that maintains anxiety is the tendency to generate negative interpretations of unclear or ambiguous information (known as interpretation bias). We have developed a novel online intervention using cognitive bias modification of interpretations (CBM-I) to ‘train’ people with anxiety problems to develop a more helpful cognitive bias to generate positive interpretations, which effectively reduces anxiety and depression. This low-intensity intervention is straightforward, accessible and can be offered at scale. In the current project we will use cognitive, genetic, clinical and demographic information to predict clinical outcome at the end of the CBM-I intervention and at follow up. This is something people with lived of anxiety have told us that they would like, to help inform their decisions selecting a treatment option. 

Deadline : 19 August 2024.

(12) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate position in Dr. Angika Basant’s group at the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London.  

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.

Deadline : 16 July 2024.

The project can be attacked from different perspectives (single molecule, single cell, or tissue level) but in all cases requires extensive experience in the relevant mechanical techniques, according to each relevant length-scale. The project is funded by the Wellcome Trust. The project will be developed between the Francis Crick Institute and the Department of Physics at King’s College London.

(17) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Assistant OR Postdoctoral Research Associate in Radionuclide Physics

We are seeking a Research Assistant or Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on an exciting project to enhance therapeutic options for patients with neuroendocrine tumours. The person will carry out cellular and preclinical dosimetry using (and acquiring if so desired) data from radiochemical/biological studies to create, characterise, and test new molecular radionuclide therapies beyond beta particle-emitters both in vitro and in vivo in tumour and healthy cells and tissues. Approaches will be both as single therapies and in combination with chemotherapies. Radionuclide imaging studies alongside the above data will be used to inform dosimetry. This post will work closely with a postdoc with biological expertise already in place. 

Improvement of cancer treatment remains a priority as 28% of UK deaths are still attributable to cancer. Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs), whilst rare, are the exemplar cancer type investigated here as they are hard to treat. External beam radiotherapy and molecular radionuclide therapy in the form of 177Lu-DOTATATE have enhanced survival for some NET patients, but the long-term outlook for most patients with advanced NETs remains poor.

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.
