(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  Arnell Post-Doctoral Research Associate (Fixed Term)

This project aims at investigating the potential of clusters of strong volcanic eruptions to cause sustained cold events under pre-Holocene climate scenarios. The successful applicant will design and run transient climate model experiments using Earth system models that include atmospheric chemistry-aerosol-climate coupling, i.e. one or two of the following models: UKESM1, MPI-ESM1.2, and HadCM3. The simulations will be performed under a range of glacial boundary conditions to determine the cooling potential of volcanic clusters and assess short- and long-term memory of regional and global climatic variability. Particular attention will be paid to how volcanic cluster signals propagate into the subsurface ocean and the associated determinant processes, the ocean memory effects and the coupling between northward heat transport, Arctic sea ice and the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. Finally, the experiments will be evaluated using a wide network of proxy-climate data by comparing reconstructed and simulated spatial temperature and precipitation patterns.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Computational Engineering and Interoperable Data Exchange (Fixed Term)

The project aims at a comprehensive virtualisation of industrial operations, i.e. a hierarchical representation of data and models associated with every entity at different levels of granularity, in order to exploit synergies for resource, energy, and emissions savings. The overall goal is, using ideas from Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, the Semantic Web, machine learning, and statistics, to create a system capable of providing quantitative decision support to stakeholders, planners, and policymakers and extend the World Avatar (TWA) so that we can reach the project aims. This is being realised through an ontological representation of data in a knowledge-graph in combination with an eco-system of autonomously operating software agents, thus achieving interoperability and automation in cross-domain applications. Specifically, this project is placed in the computational engineering domain and is concerned with integrating information material circularity evaluations into the knowledge-graph, linking to related information and thus enabling data sharing and novel applications.

Top 16 Tools for Researchers in 2022

 

(17) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Associate (Fixed Term)

The role will involve a substantial amount of in vivo work so prior expertise in using mouse models¿ in either cancer research or neurobiology research, is essential. In addition, expertise in techniques like FACS/flow cytometry, single-cell genomics and epigenomics, mass cytometry, CyTOF and/or proteomics is highly desirable. These techniques will be important for investigating tumour samples of various genotypes composed of heterogeneous populations of cells, with the aim of deconvolving differences in cell type composition and cell state. The work will be supervised by Dr Manav Pathania and will be based at The Milner Institute and the Department of Oncology. The lab is also affiliated with the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute, the CRUK Cambridge Institute and the CRUK Children’s Brain Tumour Centre of Excellence. Paediatric gliomas driven by mutations in histone 3 variants harbour many additional co-segregating partner alterations of unknown functional significance. Our lab developed the first mouse models of this disease (Pathania et al., Cancer Cell, 2017) and since then we have developed many additional models representing distinct tumour subtypes. Importantly, in our prior work we showed that histone mutations are unable to induce transformation alone and that partner mutations are needed for tumourigenesis. This suggests a two-step model of tumour induction, in which first the histone mutations stall the differentiation of specific, spatiotemporally discrete neural progenitors, trapping them in a proliferative state. In a second step, these stalled progenitors accrue additional partner mutations, which then induce transformation. Different partners likely produce transformation through distinct oncogenic mechanisms and co-opt the microenvironment in unique ways, which once identified can serve as the basis for a subtype-specific targeted therapy approach.

About The University of Cambridge, United Kingdom – Official Website

The University of Cambridge is a collegiate research university in Cambridge, United Kingdom. Founded in 1209 and granted a royal charter by Henry III in 1231, Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world’s fourth-oldest surviving university. The university grew out of an association of scholars who left the University of Oxford after a dispute with the townspeople. The two English ancient universities share many common features and are often jointly referred to as Oxbridge.

Cambridge is formed from a variety of institutions which include 31 semi-autonomous constituent colleges and over 150 academic departments, faculties and other institutions organised into six schools. All the colleges are self-governing institutions within the university, each controlling its own membership and with its own internal structure and activities. All students are members of a college. Cambridge does not have a main campus, and its colleges and central facilities are scattered throughout the city. Undergraduate teaching at Cambridge is organised around weekly small-group supervisions in the colleges – a feature unique to the Oxbridge system. These are complemented by classes, lectures, seminars, laboratory work and occasionally further supervisions provided by the central university faculties and departments. Postgraduate teaching is provided predominantly centrally.
