Tohtorikoulutettavan / projektitutkijan tehtävä dosentti Kaisa Ivaska-Papaioannoun tutkimusryhmässä


Turun yliopiston biolääketieteen laitoksessa on haettavana tohtorikoulutettavan määräaikainen tehtävä dosentti Ivaska-Papaioannoun tutkimusryhmässä. Tehtävä sisältyy Suomen Akatemian rahoittamaan tutkimushankkeeseen, jossa tutkitaan luuston erittämien säätelytekijöiden merkitystä energia-aineenvaihdunnassa.

Luu on metabolisesti aktiivinen kudos, joka erittää endokriinisesti vaikuttavia tekijöitä eli osteokiinejä. Osteokiinit säätelevät mm. glukoosiaineenvaihduntaa eläinmalleissa, mutta niiden merkitys ihmisellä tunnetaan heikosti. Tutkimusprojektin tavoitteena on tunnistaa verenkierrossa ja luuytimessä esiintyviä osteokiinejä ja tutkia niiden säätelyä, merkitystä ja diagnostista käyttöä.

Työtehtäviin sisältyy soluviljelyä, molekyylibiologiaa, proteiinianalytiikkaa sekä potilasnäytteiden ja koe-eläinten käsittelyä. Kaikki aiempi työkokemus ja vahva osaaminen edellä mainituista tekniikoista/menetelmistä katsotaan hakijalle eduksi. Ylempi korkeakoulututkinto esimerkiksi solubiologian, biolääketieteen tai biokemian alalta antaa parhaimmat edellytykset tehtävässä menestymiseen.

Turun yliopiston johtosäännön mukaan tohtorikoulutettavan tehtävään otettavalta edellytetään ylempää korkeakoulututkintoa ja hyväksyttyä tutkimussuunnitelmaa. Lisäksi edellytetään korkeakoulututkinnon suorittamisen yhteydessä tai muutoin osoitettua kykyä ja motivoitumista jatko-opintoihin ja tohtorin tutkinnon suorittamiseen tutkimussuunnitelman mukaisesti. Mikäli tehtävään valittavalla ei ole tohtorintutkinnon opinto-oikeutta häntä tehtävään valittaessa, tehtävä täytetään aluksi nimikkeellä projektitutkija.

Tehtävässä noudatetaan kuuden (6) kuukauden koeaikaa.

Tehtävä täytetään 1.1.2020 alkaen tai sopimuksen mukaan. Tehtävä täytetään 2-vuotiskaudeksi. Projektitutkijan/tohtorikoulutettavan tehtäväkohtainen palkkaus määräytyy yliopistojen palkkausjärjestelmän mukaisesti. Väitöskirjaa päätyönään tekevien henkilöiden osalta lähtökohtana on, että palkkaus määritellään työsuhteen alussa vaativuustasolle 2. Palkka on alkuvaiheessa vähintään 2155,29 e/kk.

Tehtävään on sähköinen haku (https://www.utu.fi/en/university/come-work-with-us/open-vacancies).  Haku päättyy perjantaina 29.11.2019 (klo 23:59).

Research Fellow (Post-Doctoral) position at Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, Ireland

14.11.2019 | Avoimet työpaikat

Open position for a Research Fellow (Post-Doctoral) in the O’Driscoll Group at the School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences and Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute.

Our research group (the O’Driscoll group) at Trinity College Dublin has extensive experience in research of exosomes and other extracellular vesicles (collectively termed EVs). EVs are emerging as important players in cell-to-cell communication under physiological and pathological circumstances. Some studies have suggested significantly more EVs in cancer patients’ blood compared to healthy controls; other have not. We hypothesis that this conflict in observation may be due to EVs’ heterogenous nature. Here we will more comprehensively investigate this. In vitro and in vivo studies across several solid tumour types implicate EVs released from cancer cells as causally involved in invasion, angiogenesis, metastasis and drug-resistance. Previous attempts to block EV release, and so these consequences, have been hampered by the approaches used also affecting EV release from normal cells that may be important for physiological events. However, we have now established that the microenvironment of the tumour substantially contributes to EV release. This programme will thus investigate this, in efforts to prevent metastasis and drug-resistance. But not all EVs are bad! We have also successfully isolated EVs from normal mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with potential as drug/miRNA delivery vehicles. This will be further explored.

The Post-Doctoral Fellow appointed to this post will conduct cellular and molecular research related to this programme, assist with the day-to-day running of this project, assist with supervising the research of PhD students, assist with preparing timely reports for IRC and other appropriate forms of dissemination from this study. The candidate will hold a PhD in a pharmacology, bio-engineering, biotechnology, biochemistry, immunology, molecular biology, biotechnology or pharmacy.
