(04) 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.

Applications are invited for the positions of Research Associate to join the group of Dr Elisa Laurenti within The Wellcome Trust – Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute and Department of Haematology on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. This project will focus on understanding the heterogeneity of behaviours of human blood stem cells and their relevance to blood formation and human health. In recent years, work from many groups, including that of Dr Laurenti, has shown that there are different blood stem cell subtypes. Some of these subtypes are “atypical” because they do not possess all of the classical features of a blood stem cell. Specifically, this Wellcome sponsored project will study how these “atypical” blood stem cells are formed and to what extent they contribute to stress responses. The project will predominantly use single cell technologies (functional assays and single cell -omics) on primary patient samples. Key biological questions will centre around the molecular regulation of lineage decisions under healthy, stressed and diseased conditions.

The properties of the nanoparticles (size, shape, intrinsic structure, ligand functionalisation) will be manipulated to control the proximity effect, and the reactors so-designed will drive target protein degradation via the ubiquitin-proteasome system as well as lysosomal pathways.

Deadline : 25 September 2022

(49) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate

A postdoctoral position is available to conduct cutting edge neuroscience to isolate the mechanisms underlying adaptive forgetting. The postdoctoral fellow would contribute to work that integrates cognitive theory concerning memory, cognitive control, and affect with the neurobiological research at the systems and circuit levels, using advanced imaging methods as well as advanced connectivity and multivariate methods. The long-term aim is to understand how people regulate intrusive memories, thoughts, and feelings at multiple levels of analysis and to identify how those mechanisms break down in psychiatric disorders. The research thus lies at the interface of cognitive control, memory, and affect regulation and candidates with interest in any of these areas will be considered. Applicants with experience in functional or structural imaging are strongly encouraged to apply.

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.
