Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in Biological Timing and Immunology

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented post-doctoral scientist to join our team working full-time on a 4-year project funded by Versus Arthritis investigating circadian changes in the joint and gut in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). A defining feature of RA is the daily rhythmicity in joint pain and stiffness, and our previous work recognises that the inflammatory environment within the joint exhibits 24h variation (Hand LE et al 2020 Nature Communications).  We now wish to explore mechanisms driving this.  Furthermore, RA is associated with compositional changes in the gut microbiota.  This project explores  links between the circadian clock, immunity and the microbiome.

Top 16 Tools for Researchers in 2022

 

(17) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in Micropaleontology

Recently discovered contourite-like drifts of sediment in seismic reflection records of the lower Plio-Pleistocene in the Red Sea (Mitchell et al., 2019) suggest the exciting possibility that deep-waters were much more mobile than they are at present.  That water movement may have been due to more vigorous exchange with the Indian Ocean and/or to wind-driven currents reaching the seabed, at a time when the basin was shallower.  If the former, the Red Sea would have supplied the Indian Ocean with more water densified by evaporation.  A vigorous exchange may even have implications for dispersions of mammals from Africa, including early Hominids, as it would disfavour the southern route through the Bab el Mandeb Strait.
