Thomas Jefferson University Postdoc募集

Postdoc position open

We are seeking a recent Ph.D. fellow to perform two exciting projects. The first is to address how the conserved and universal CCA sequence at the tRNA 3’ end controls and regulates tRNA stability in cells. Although this CCA sequence is essential for the decoding process of tRNA, including amino acid charging and tRNA movement across the ribosome, our data suggests that it is also important to regulate tRNA stability in cells, suggesting the possibility of a previously unrecognized function of the sequence. The question of how tRNA stability and turnover is regulated inside cells, particularly during stress, is poorly understood but is directly relevant to human health. Cardiovascular disease that arises from delayed CCA addition may be caused by instability of tRNA due to the lack of CCA.

The second project is to develop and optimize prototype of oligonucleotide-based hybridization assays for the typing of single nucleotide polymorphisms and short tandem repeats from PCR amplified DNA fragments. This project will interface with other projects in the lab to miniaturize and automate sample processing from cell lysis to hybridization readout on a fabricated chip. This project has a strong potential for direct application to industry and to biotechnology.

For the first project, experience with molecular cloning and with gene knockout in the model organisms of E. coli (a model of Gram-) and B. subtilis (a model of Gram+) is important. It is also important to have experience with Northern analysis and tag-purification of proteins. This project will also involve developing a new fluorescent technique to monitor tRNA in cells. For the second project, experience with nucleic acid research and basic molecular cloning is important.

Please contact Professor Ya-Ming Hou, Thomas Jefferson University, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Philadelphia, USA, Email: ya-ming.hou@jefferson.edu. Website: http://www.monalisascybersolutions.com/Ya-MingHou/

University of Birmingham Postdoc募集

A post-doctoral level researcher is needed at the Centre for Liver Research, University of Birmingham (UK), which has an international reputation in Basic and Translational Liver Science research. Since 2008 the Centre for Liver Research has been a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Unit (BRU). The Birmingham NIHR Liver BRU is part of a multi-million pound scheme to prevent, diagnose and treat ill-health, and is one of 16 BRUs in England that focus on translational research.

The Syn group focuses on dissecting mechanisms that promote progression of (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) fatty liver disease, and those that lead to the development of primary liver cancers (hepatocellular carcinoma). Currently, the group is examining the role of the novel matrix molecule and cytokine, Osteopontin in a) regulating lymphocyte recruitment across hepatic sinusoidal endothelial cells, b) driving liver repair and fibrosis, and c) enhancing tumor development. Underpinning all these are studies to investigate the post-transcriptional and post-translational regulation of the Osteopontin molecule. Approaches utilized include standard cell culture systems, molecular and cell biological techniques, and advanced immunological methods which include flow based adhesion assays and liver Krumdieck slices. In collaboration with groups in the USA, Germany and Spain, we will examine the role of Osteopontin isoforms (splice variants and PTM) in vivo.

The candidate should have a MD or PhD in molecular/ cellular biology/ immunology/ biochemistry or closely-related life/biomedical science field. The ideal candidate would be a motivated clinician and/or scientist with a strong background in the above and expertise in cell culture, protein biochemistry and signal transduction.
