Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  Senior Research Associate in Data Science for Climate (Fixed Term)

Computational modelling is at the core of climate science, where complex models of earth systems are key to the scientific process. Most models embed significant inherent and accidental complexity which hampers verification and maintenance, reproducibility, and performance. Furthermore, modern models are exceptionally data-rich, both in terms of observational inputs and simulation outputs. There is consequently a pressing need for multi-disciplinary research, bringing together computer science, data science and climate science to deliver new high-quality, high-performance, and high-assurance models capable of yielding real transformational insights into our changing climate. Fostering such multi-disciplinary research is the aim of this 3-year Early Career Advanced Fellowship in the Institute of Computing for Climate Science (ICCS) at the University of Cambridge.

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Senior Post Doctoral Researcher – Bioinformatics/Statistical Genetics (Fixed Term)

Human mitochondria incorporate ~1100 proteins which are encoded two distinct genomes: nuclear DNA and mtDNA. Although inherited by totally different mechanisms, the proteins encoded by nDNA and mtDNA directly interact and are essential for mitochondrial function. Preliminary evidence indicates that the two genomes have co-evolved in the human population, but the underlying genetic mechanisms for this interaction are now known. The post holder will harness the power of very large whole genome sequence datasets, including UK Biobank and the NIHR BioResource, to establish a framework to look for nuclear-mtDNA epistasis and determine whether specific nuclear-mtDNA interactions are under selection at the population level. This will form the basis for human disease studies, where a disruption of the normal balance between nuclear genes and mtDNA contributes to neurodegenerative diseases. Down-stream functional work will include transcriptomic and metabolomic datasets.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Assistant/Post-doctoral Research Associate (Storer Lab)

The laboratory of Dr Mekayla Storer (https://www.stemcells.cam.ac.uk/people/pi/dr-mekayla-storer) uses multidisciplinary approaches to understand why the distal portion of the digit tip is the only part of the limb that can regenerate in mammals. The key step in this process is the formation of a blastema, a transiently proliferating mass of cells that the regenerates the different cell types of the digit to replicate the original structure. Therefore the broad goal of our research is to understand which cells and molecular pathways are necessary for this process. A portion of our present research builds on our previous work (Storer et al., Dev. Cell 2020) that used high-throughput single-cell mRNA sequencing and Cre-recombinase based lineage tracing to define the transcriptional identity of the mesenchymal cells comprising the blastema and the major transitions during mammalian digit tip regeneration. We are looking for a dedicated post-doctoral researcher to determine which of these factors present during digit tip amputation are necessary for successful regeneration and the mechanisms that underly this process. The post holder will use high-resolution imaging analysis, single cell transcriptomics/multi-omics approaches, in vitro culture with CRISPR-mediated gene regulation and in vivo transplantation assays.

(38) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  MRC Postdoctoral Fellow (Fixed Term)

The postholder will work within a programme focussed on Mitochondrial Transport Processes. Mitochondrial transport proteins are crucial for the function of the mitochondrion and cause of a wide range of metabolic, developmental and neuromuscular mitochondrial diseases. Basic molecular knowledge about the structure and mechanism of transport proteins is required to provide a foundation for biomedical function-dysfunction studies in mitochondrial and cellular systems of greater complexity to understand their role in health and disease.

The goal of the project is to understand the molecular mechanism of mitochondrial transport protein by using electron cryo-microscopy (cryoEM). The post-holder will participate in every stage of the process, from isolation of mitochondria, expression and purification of transport proteins, cryoEM grid preparation, data acquisition and processing and structure model building and interpretation. Candidates will have (or about to be awarded) a PhD in Biological or Physical Natural Sciences, and a track record of related research achievements in the area of Structural Biology and/or Biophysics.

Deadline : 31 January 2024

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.

Cambridge University Press, a department of the university, is the oldest university press in the world and currently the second largest university press in the world. Cambridge Assessment, also a department of the university, is one of the world’s leading examining bodies and provides assessment to over eight million learners globally every year. The university also operates eight cultural and scientific museums, including the Fitzwilliam Museum, as well as a botanic garden. Cambridge’s libraries, of which there are 116, hold a total of around 16 million books, around nine million of which are in Cambridge University Library, a legal deposit library. The university is home to, but independent of, the Cambridge Union – the world’s oldest debating society. The university is closely linked to the development of the high-tech business cluster known as ‘Silicon Fen’. It is the central member of Cambridge University Health Partners, an academic health science centre based around the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
