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.

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

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

This post represents an excellent opportunity for a medically qualified trainee with an interest in oncology, endocrinology or metabolism to join a multidisciplinary team of clinical and basic scientists investigating the drivers of cancer cachexia. The central hypothesis to this work is that cachexia is driven by the tumour itself, with molecular signals from the tumour activating and interacting with hormonal pathways that result in anorexia, systemic sickness and tissue wasting. By understanding how cancer biology and the endocrine system interact, we believe we can discover novel treatments for this devastating condition which, to date, remains without an effective treatment.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: MRC Postdoctoral Fellow

The postholder will work within a programme focussed on understanding mitochondrial dynamics and membrane contact sites as key regulators of cell fate decisions. Mitochondria form a dynamic and connected network, which is constantly remodelled by cycles of membrane fission and fusion. These dynamic transitions are not only required to ensure a proper mitochondrial function but also to respond to cellular needs and adapt to the metabolic state of the cell. To execute cellular functions, mitochondria also establish membrane contact sites with other organelles, including the endoplasmic reticulum, peroxisomes, trans-Golgi network vesicles and lysosomes. These organelle membrane contact sites are hotspots for metabolites flux and tightly regulate mitochondrial architecture. While defects in mitochondrial morphology or contact sites have been associated with human diseases, the molecular mechanisms linking mitochondrial membrane remodelling to cell fate decisions are not fully understood.

(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

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

In vivo, cells migrate through tight spaces and may undergo division in crowded environments, both in physiological and pathological contexts, for example during immune cells diapedesis or cancer cell dissemination. These phenomena are difficult to observe in vivo, especially in mammalian models. Key studies in the field have largely exploited in vitro systems, for example culturing cells in 3D collagen matrices or microfabrication of PDMS microchannels, to mimic interstitial confining environments. From this wealth of work, it has become clear that cells experiencing physical confinement during cell migration suffer mechanical stress. This causes deformation of the largest organelle, the nucleus, and loss of nuclear integrity, thus inducing DNA damage. Physical compression can even promote genetic diversity in cancer cells. In addition, when cells in culture undergo mitosis under mechanical compression, they show extensive cortical blebbing and suffer division defects. Together, these findings show that mechanical stress negatively impacts the integrity of the genome and this has been proposed to underlie cancer initiation and progression. However, the consequences of mechanical compression on cells during in vivo cell migration remain so far unexplored.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate (Duque-Correa Lab) (Fixed Term)

This project will focus on understanding the effects of whipworm infection on intestinal epithelial stem cell fate and on stromal and immune cell responses that result in changes in mucosal physiology and inflammation, enabling chronic infections. Specifically, this project will characterise the gene expression changes (using bulk, single-cell and spatial transcriptomics) of intestinal epithelial cells and stem cell niche populations across infection and after eradication of the parasite. Stem cell remodelling pathways modulated by the parasite will be further studied using lineage tracing and imaging, and stem and stromal cell function will be assessed using organoid assays. We anticipate this work will lead to fundamental new knowledge on the whipworm mucosal niche, potentially yielding new targets for anti-parasitic therapies and providing novel insights into how intestinal epithelia repair damage with relevant application toward intestinal inflammatory diseases.

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

In the time it takes you to read this sentence, your body will have finished producing about 5 million new cells; each of these cells had to accurately copy, or replicate, the six billion bases of DNA in their genome exactly once. DNA replication stress is characterised by the frequent slowing and stalling of replication forks, which can result in the chromosomal breaks and rearrangements that lead to genome instability, and ultimately to cancer. Replication stress can be induced by oncogenes, leading to the hypothesis that oncogene-induced replication stress is an early driver of cancer. Viruses such as human papillomavirus (HPV) bring viral oncogenes into the cells they infect, and this research will use the unique model of HPV-infected human skin cells as a model system to uncover the precise steps from oncogene-induced replication stress, to genome instability, to cancer initiation.

A position exists, for a Research Nurse or Senior Research Nurse to take on a role in our expanding translational research group, investigating ageing and age-related conditions. Ageing has long been considered an irreversible condition and the result of time. Several research findings challenge this dogma: at a cellular level it is possible to differentiate biological age from chronological age, lifespan can be modulated with behavior and diet, and recent clinical studies have found that it is possible to reverse the epigenetic age of individuals using various strategies.

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.
