PhD Scholarship in Cell Biology and Imaging (Zenker Group, ARMI) Monash University, Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI)

8.3.2019 | Avoimet työpaikat

https://bioloxy.com/announcement,a1596.html?fbclid=IwAR3x6a9jlSWGAN_nbvLUxL2YMcOnA_0fn4UpBVNCNnl_nQ1DOwOg0pu75pI

Job No.: 588677

Employment Type: Full-time

Duration: 3 year fixed-term appointment

Location: Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI), 15 Innovation Walk, Monash University, Clayton

Remuneration: Annual living allowance based on Monash University’s Research Training Program (RTP), stipend of $27,872 per annum (2019 rate – indexed annually)

The Opportunity

The Zenker group is seeking an enthusiastic PhD candidate interested in cell biology and microscopy to uncover the real-time rearrangements of the inner skeleton of a cell during embryonic development. The successful applicant will gain extensive expertise in live imaging using various microscope systems, mouse husbandry, genotyping, cell culture systems, cloning, immunostaining, mouse embryo dissection, injections and imaging, drug treatments and computational image analysis.

Every cell has an internal skeleton composed of filament-like structures called microtubules. Remarkably, these structures can rapidly re-organize their entire network to allow a cell to change its shape, function and fate. However, most studies on microtubule dynamics have been limited to simplified 2D cell culture systems or fixed tissues. Thus, the accurate spatial-temporal regulation of microtubule remodelling in intact tissues remains under-explored.

The combined use of state-of-the-art confocal microscopy, molecular manipulations, and computational image analysis allowed us to identify an unprecedented form of microtubule growth in the living mouse embryo. The emanating filaments serve as transport railways to establish asymmetries in the cellular organization of the embryo. This mechanism is required for the formation of the pluripotent inner cell mass, which will give rise to the embryo proper.

Candidate Requirements

The successful applicant must be an Australian resident with the following attributes:

  • An excellent academic track record in biological sciences
  • Interest and commitment
  • Experience in microscopy would be an advantage

Applicants will be considered provided they fulfil the criteria for PhD admission at Monash University. Details of eligibility requirements to undertake a PhD at ARMI are available at armi.org.au/careers-education/higher-degree-research.

Candidates will be required to meet Monash entry requirements, which include English-language skills.

Successful applicants will be expected to enrol no later than 1 June 2019.

How To Apply

Supervisor: Dr Jennifer Zenker

Submit your expression of interest to Dr Jennifer Zenker (Jennifer.Zenker@monash.edu) and include the following:

  • A cover letter that includes a brief statement addressing the Candidate Requirements and the reason for your interest in the project
  • A curriculum vitae, including a list of any published works
  • A full statement of academic record, supported by scanned copies of relevant certified documentation
  • Contact details of two academic referees

Two fixed term PhD student positions in Cell Biology at Åbo Akademi University starting 1.4.2019 (or according to agreement)

8.3.2019 | Avoimet työpaikat

https://abo.rekrytointi.com/paikat/index.php?jid=179&key&o=A_RJ&rspvt=7q8x3xyyvm8804cc8ws8soggkgs484w&fbclid=IwAR24CCHHklfFal-fV5q7qHdfW35TFnEUw1lcU5c1PVRrAl4apxIY5ml1ako

Åbo Akademi University is an internationally acknowledged research university with an extensive responsibility for providing education in Swedish in Finland. The activities cover research and education in most disciplines from natural sciences and technology, humanities, pedagogics and theology, to business and social sciences.

Åbo Akademi University invites applications for a fixed term position as a PhD Student in Cell Biology starting 1.4.2019 within SPACE-Project (42 months) and within BACE-Project (48 months)

Research group

The Cell Fate lab led by Professor Cecilia Sahlgren is focused on the fundamental molecular mechanisms that guide cell fate and cell organization in stem cell differentiation, tissue formation and in disease such as cancer. Together with collaborators we utilize such knowledge to develop material-based medical technologies to control these mechanisms in regenerative and cancer therapies. Coordination of cells through molecular cell signaling pathways is crucial for the formation of functional tissues and signaling is often deregulated in diseases such as cancer, allowing cells to acquire abnormal functions and pathological remodeling of tissue architecture. The physical, mechanical and chemical stimuli of the microenvironment also influence cell signaling and cell fate decisions during development and disease progression.

Project description

We are seeking 2 ambitious PhD candidates to join our projects on Spatiotemporal activation of cell functions (SPACE) 1.4.2019-31.8.2022 or Bioelectronic activation of cell functions (BACE) 1.4.2019-28.2.2023. These projects form an interdisciplinary approach bringing together researchers within experimental physics and molecular biology, in order to activate Notch signalling on demand. The Notch signalling pathway is a seemingly simple signalling system where the interaction between a ligand at the surface of one cell and a receptor at the surface of another gives rise to one active signalling fragment, which regulates target gene expression. Notch is involved in cell fate specification during development, usually by facilitating binary cell fate decisions or by maintaining stem cell fate. Perturbation of the signalling cascade is a contributing factor in the development of various diseases. Strictly organised, both spatial and temporal, expression of different receptors and ligands is essential for proper development of different organs, with each consecutive activation of Notch driving a specific morphogenic process. The possibility of controlling Notch receptor activation by regulating ligand dose and the specific timing of activation will enable us to better understand different developmental patterns.

JOB REQUIREMENTS

We are accepting applications from enthusiastic and highly talented candidates who are interested in a dynamic, stimulating and ambitious environment to perform their research and share their scientific knowledge.

We are looking for candidates that meet the following requirements

•The candidate should have a MSc in molecular biology, cell biology, or an equivalent area

Personal qualities

We are seeking a driven and pro-active applicant with good communication and interpersonal skills. The applicant should be confident in working independently, but value developing good working relationships both within the research group and with collaborators. Knowledge of basic cell and molecular biological techniques (e.g. mammalian cell culture, Western Blotting, PCR) is required. Knowledge in e.g. biophysics, synthetic biology, chemistry or engineering (with strong molecular background) is an asset.

CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT

We offer

•A challenging job at a dynamic and ambitious environment and in an enthusiastic international, interdisciplinary team.

•Access to world class infrastructure in proteomics, metabolomics, functional genomics, bioinformatics and bioimaging.

•Support with your personal development and career planning.

•Gross monthly salary is in accordance with the salary system of Finnish universities based on levels 2 – 4 of the job demand level for teaching and research personnel. In addition, a salary component based on personal work performance is paid.

•Doctoral training programme at Åbo Akademi University

SALARY

The salary for PhD Student is in accordance with the Finnish University salary system for teaching and research personnel job demand levels 2-4, where the work specific salary component is 2011,17-2507,62€ per month. In addition, there is a salary component based on personal work performance, which is at most 50.00% of the base salary.
