ShanghaiTech University Postdoctral Position

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Cell Cycle in Development Laboratory (Kimata group).

The ‘Cell Cycle in Development’ Laboratory (PI: Dr Yuu Kimata) is moving from the University of Cambridge to open a new laboratory at the School of Life Science and Technology (SLST) at the ShanghaiTech University in Shanghai, China.

We are looking for an ambitious, highly-driven postdoctoral scientist to work with Dr Kimata to elucidate the functions of the cell cycle-regulating
proteins in coupling cell cycle exit to cell fate determination and cellular
differentiation during the metazoan development.

The Kimata lab aims to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms by which the cell cycle is coordinated with developmental and homeostatic processes in the metazoan organism. We combine the model systems of Drosophila melanogaster and mammalian organoids with in vitro cell culture, biochemistry, proteomics and bioinformatics, and have been working with international collaborators including David Glover, Marc de la Roche(University of Cambridge), Renata Basto (Curie Institute), and Hiroyuki Yamano (UCL).

The focus of our research has been on the evolutionarily conserved multisubunit ubiquitin ligase, the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C). We have recently discovered:
1) APC/C regulates the transcriptional activity of one of the major extracellular signalling pathways, the Wnt signalling pathway, during the retinal development in Drosophila (Martins et al., 2017 Developmental Cell);
2) APC/C ensures cell fate determination of the neural stem cell and the oocyte through the regulation of the centrosome (Meghini et al., 2016, Nature Communications, Braun et al., bioRxiv).
For further information of our research, please visit the Kimata lab websites:
https://www.gen.cam.ac.uk/research-groups/kimata (University of Cambridge), or, http://www.kimatalab.com/ (the lab’s own website).

The joined researcher will address fundamental biological questions centring around the cell cycle control in the multicellular organism such as:
• How are cell cycle exit and cellular differentiation coupled, and what are the role of cell cycle-regulating proteins in this coupling?
• How are these coupling mechanisms or the uncoupling of these processes involved in human disease?
• How is cell proliferation regulated in vivo, and how can it be controlled at will?
The specific projects for the researcher will be determined through discussions with Dr Kimata, depending on their skills and experience as well as the availability and the timeliness of the projects.

The successful candidate will have a strong track record and will demonstrate excellent interpersonal, organisational and time management skills and good English communication skills. An individual with a strong passion for science and collaborative and can-do attitudes will best fit to our lab. Applications from adventurous foreign individuals are also highly encouraged.

The research will be based in the modern open lab space in the SLST in ShanghaiTech University, situated in the heart of Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park in the Pudong Science District in Shanghai. The initial term of this post is 24 months, but the term can be extended up to 4 years, with the possibility of the promotion to Research Assistant Professor. The annual salary will be decided based on the University salary scale, and the experience and qualification of the candidate. The typical salary for a newly graduated postdoc is 155,000 RMB. All postdocs in ShanghaiTech will have access to various social benefits provided by the university, including an on-campus accommodation and a contribution to the social security.

UT Health San Antonio ポスドク募集

ポスドク募集; Boychuk Lab, UT Health San Antonio

私(Teppei Fujikawa, Ph.D.)が所属するテキサス大学ヘルスサンアントニオ校(以下UTHSA) で共同研究者であるDr. Carie R. Boychukがポスドクを一名募集しています。Dr. Boychukのかわりに私が投稿させて頂いています。詳細は下記に書いてありますが、中枢神経系での電気生理の経験を持つ方を探しています。Boychuckラボと当ラボ(Fujikawa Lab)は共同プロジェクトを立ち上げて密接に連携しています。Boychuk Labでは電気生理の技術を中心に、生体における代謝調節機構を性差やさまざまな観点から研究しています。特に副交感神経系による代謝調節機構に着目して現在研究を行っています。興味のある方はぜひDr. Boychuk(boychukc@uthscsa.edu)にご連絡ください。

以下は僕からサンアントニオに関する情報です。

サンアントニオはテキサス州では人口が2番目に大きな都市であり(全米で7位)、今アメリカで経済的に最も成長している都市の一つです(https://www.brookings.edu/wp-content/ uploads/2016/07/MetroMonitor.pdf)。ボストンやカルフォルニアに比べると娯楽や日系スー パーなどは無いですが、物価は安く賃貸の値段も沿岸部、さらには同じテキサス州の大都市で あるダラス、ヒューストン、オースティン等と比べても圧倒的に安いです(https://www.apartmentlist.com/rentonomics/december-2015-texas-apartment-list-rent-report/)。またテキサスは州税が無いです。その為ポスドクの給与でも余裕をもって生活はできますし、研 究に集中して望める環境です。また日本人補習校がある事からわかるように一定数の日本人も 居ます。アメリカに来て以来テキサスのみで過ごしていますが、非常に生活しやすいと思いま す。気候的には夏は40度近くになることもしばしばありますが、湿気が少ない分日本の夏よりずっと過ごしやすいです。

UTHSAは研究大学院で特にPhysiologyおよびAgingの研究で有名です。我々のDepartmentは Neuroscienceを軸として様々なバックグランドの研究者が所属しており、多くのコラボレー ションがあります。

質問等がありましたらCarie(boychukc@uthscsa.edu)もしくは私に(fujikawa@uthscsa.edu) メールを頂ければと思います。

以下募集詳細です。
--------------------------------------
One postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Carie R. Boychuk in the Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology at UT Health San Antonio (http://physiology.uthscsa.edu/).

研究室員の募集

ボストンにある私のThe Molecular Pathological Epidemiology (MPE) Laboratory分子病理疫学研究室で研究室員(computational biologist, bioinformatician, pathologist, anatomic pathologist, diagnostic pathologist あるいは他の分野)を募集しています。私のMPE研究室は中心はDana-Farber Cancer Instituteに位置しながらハーバード大学関連のいくつかの施設(Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women's Hospital, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Harvard Medical School)にまたがって存在し、機能しています(従来のラボの概念を超越しています)。私は日本人で現在唯一のNCI R35 Outstanding Investigator Award (OIA) Grant 保持者のようです(http://grantome.com/grant/NIH/R35-CA197735-01)。ポジションとしては常任研究員、ポスドクのいずれかが可能です。経験、能力(特にPathology, Computational biology/bioinformaticsの能力)に応じて、自前のグラントなしでも給与のサポートすることも可能です。自前のァ
0%i%s%H!J%U%'%m!<%7%C%WEy)サポートがありますと、ポジションをオファーする可能性が高まります。Epidemiology、Biostatistics、Molecular Biology、Immunology, Microbiology, 臨床医学のbackgroundを持つ方も考慮しており、得意な分野・経験を生かしていただきます。プロジェクトは消化器腫瘍を使ってMolecular Pathological Epidemiology (MPE、分子病理疫学)、Immuno-MPE(免疫分子病理疫学)、Pharmaco-MPE (薬理分子病理疫学)、 Microbiology-MPE(微生物分子病理疫学)、病気を限定しないMPE解析手法の開発、あるいはMPEと他の分野とのあらたな統合分野の設立と多岐にわたります。ラボメンバーのCareer Developmentのサポートも充実しています(このリンクをご覧ください http://uja-info.org/findingourway/post/1484/)。 これまで40人以上のポスドクが栄転していきました。私の指導のもとで、人にもよりますが、2年間の研究留学で、筆頭著者でおよそ2-5本の高質の論文を出した人が多数いますし、Co-First Authorship 制度をとってポスドクの成果をより大きくしています。

MPEは私が創造した学問分野で、その名が示すとおり、分子病理学と疫学の統合という新しい学問分野です(Ogino et al. JNCI 2010; Ogino et al. Nat Rev Clin Oncol 2011; Ogino et al. Lancet 2018; etc)。私は2013年に国際分子病理疫学学会を設立し、第5回国際分子病理疫学学会を2020年6月に計画中です(www.mpemeeting.org)。このように分子病理疫学の歴史を作っています。

近年の主要プロジェクトとしては、大腸癌をモデルとして、癌と免疫システムの相互作用への、環境因子や微生物因子の影響を、大規模集団とデータベースを駆使して調べています。この分野を免疫分子病理疫学(Immuno-MPE, Immunology-MPE)として設立し、その分野の先頭を走っています。この分野は免疫療法 (Immunotherapy)、免疫予防 (Immunoprevention) に寄与するものと期待されています。Computational biologyとBioinformaticsの手法を使って、免疫分子病理疫学をさらに発展させるのも重要プロジェクトです。

我々のMPE Researchの強みは最近のさまざまな論文で示されています(上に主要な論文を列挙しました)。分子病理疫学と私の研究室についてはこれらのサイトをご覧ください。
