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

Applications are invited for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate position to be based in the University of Cambridge, Department of Biochemistry, central Cambridge, working in the laboratory of Prof. Jussi Taipale.

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

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

Applications are invited for an experienced and motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate interested in studying various mutually exclusive partner mutations in H3K27M and H3.3G34R gliomas, a type of lethal and incurable brain tumour in children. The aim of this project is to uncover how these different mutations modify interactions between brain tumour cells and their microenvironment (blood vessels, microglia, neurons, astrocytes and infiltrating immune cells). 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. We now seek an outstanding Postdoctoral Research Associate to help reveal how different partners induce distinct oncogenic and microenvironmental co-option programmes. Applicants should hold a PhD in cancer biology or neurobiology, or be close to the completion of their degree. Candidates that have a strong background in two of the following three broad areas of expertise are encouraged to apply: (1) mouse models of cancer or neurodevelopmental disorders, (2) FACS/flow cytometry, mass cytometry, CyTOF and proteomics, or (3) single-cell multiomics and epigenomics. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to develop a basic science and multidisciplinary approach to translational cancer research. They will have a strong publication record and an excellent aptitude for research and career development. We are especially looking for applicants with a self-starter mentality, who combine a perceptive and resourceful approach with an ability to work independently. A proven capacity to design, execute, and interpret your own experiments is essential. The ability to think creatively and develop workaround approaches when faced with the challenges that may arise while conducting pioneering new research is highly desirable.

(26) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doctoral Research Associate in engineering super-stable antibody-like platforms

A talented and creative postdoctoral researcher is sought to work in Mark Howarth’s group on a project co-funded by BBSRC and AB Vista. The Howarth group will move from Oxford to Cambridge University in September 2022 (https://www2.bioch.ox.ac.uk/howarth/research.htm) and so the project will be carried out in the Department of Pharmacology at Cambridge University. The project relates to the design, evolution and application of ultra-stable proteins for targeting in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The hostile environment of the GI tract, including extreme pH and abundant proteases, has prevented general use of targeted protein therapeutics there, despite the huge range of important targets. We have engineered ultra-stable proteins (gastrobodies) to tolerate these challenging conditions. In this project we will use protein engineering and selection to develop this new platform, optimising affinity, specificity and distribution through the GI tract and general circulation. We will apply these novel tools to counteract pathogens with major consequences for human and veterinary health. Establishing such a robust targeting platform should have broad applications for disease diagnosis and maintaining GI health against infectious or autoimmune challenges.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Senior Research Associate in Material Efficiency in Metal Forming (Fixed Term)

This role is a 12-month post on the invention and scale-up of novel resource efficient metal deformation processes, as part of the UK FIRES programme. Almost a quarter of steel produced worldwide is scrapped during manufacturing, whilst many products and components use more material than is optimal due to constraints from manufacturing processes. The post-holder will survey new opportunities to ‘cut the scrap’ in current industrial processes, support the scale-up of three novel processes invented in the Use Less Group – flexible metal spinning, flexible ring rolling and folding-shearing – and develop the technical and commercial case for a fourth inventive process resulting from their landscaping survey.

Deadline : 2 August 2022

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.
