  • Postdoctoral Scholar: Therapeutics for Manganese Neurotoxicology
     The Department of Microbiology and Environmental Toxicology (https://www.metx.ucsc.edu) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for the position of Postdoctoral Scholar, under the direction of Professor Donald Smith. The Postdoctoral Scholar will participate in NIH-funded research to elucidate the neural mechanisms underlying the lasting attentional, impulse control, and fine motor dysfunction caused by developmental manganese exposure, and test potential therapeutic interventions in an established rodent model of childhood manganese exposure. Studies in children/adolescents have linked developmental environmental manganese exposure to inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity, oppositional behaviors, and fine motor deficits, though the causal relationship between manganese exposure and these deficits, and their underlying neural mechanisms are poorly understood. The specific goals of the research will be to (i) identify a clinically-relevant therapeutic regimen for the manganese deficits in attention, impulse control, and fine motor function, and (ii) determine involvement of the fronto-striatal catecholaminergic system in the manganese deficits and in the efficacy of selected therapeutics. The research will use a rodent model of developmental manganese exposure and tests of attentional, impulse control, and fine motor function, in combination with receptor antagonism, PET neuroimaging, and quantitative immunohistochemistry to elucidate changes in catecholaminergic system proteins implicated in the manganese deficits, and the association of these measures with the attention/impulse control/fine motor outcomes. These studies will be the first to identify potentially efficacious therapies for the treatment/prevention of attentional and co-morbid fine motor deficits due to developmental manganese exposure, and to elucidate their neural mechanisms. The selected applicant will be expected to participate in career development activities at UCSC, publish scientific findings, and contribute to the excellence of the academic community. The Postdoctoral Scholar will also be encouraged to apply for fellowship grants to potentially support the development of self-initiated research projects. This position will require the incumbent to work effectively, collaboratively, and collegially with undergraduate and graduate students, staff, established researchers, and faculty from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds. Applicants with expertise in any of the following are strongly encouraged to apply: experience with 5-choice serial reaction time testing paradigms in aspects of attention and impulse control; experience with PET neuroimaging data analyses; a demonstrated record of scientific productivity; excellent scientific writing skills; a demonstrated record of commitment to diversity. ]

  • Multi-omics tools for food and feed analysis
    The Institute of Marine Research (IMR) in Norway has an immediate opening for a temporary 3-year PhD position in developing multi-omics tools for food and feed analysis. The focus of the current project is development of analytical methods to support risk assessment and legislation in the aquaculture sector. About the project Food and feed fraud are emerging issues with global economic, social, health and environmental impacts. Frequently feed of both aquatic and terrestrial origin were at the core of recent international crisis such as the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) scandal. The aquaculture sector is a fast growing food-producing sector with a rapid implementation of novel feed ingredients that requires new risk assessment and development of legislation. The development of novel methodologies and analytical tools to authenticate composition and origin of feed and food materials is therefore key to create and evaluate data, which is fit for purpose for future feed safety risk assessment and regulatory needs. Main tasks The PhD candidate’s main tasks will be to contribute to the development and optimization of: (i) sample collection and management procedures, (ii) matrix-specific sample preparation techniques suitable for high throughput transcriptomic and proteomic analysis (iii) data analysis and integration of multi-omics data and (iv) creation of a publicly available multi-omics database for tissue and species specific screening of samples from aquatic and terrestrial origin. ]

  • Research Head – Senior Principal Research Scientist/Professor/Associate Professor Level FT
    We are seeking a Director of Research to head a major research project seeking effective treatment for addictive behaviors and mental illness. It builds on the findings of evolutionary psychology which explain character and social behavior as an adaption to the environment. Some of these adaptations may be very poorly suited to the conditions of modern society. There is evidence that certain mild or intermittent stresses may be beneficial, and that biochemical or epigenetic treatments to mimic such stresses could achieve the beneficial effects without the undesired side-effects (such as hunger). The research builds on a ten-year investigation into the behavioural, biochemical and epigenetic reaction of mild food shortage. Two post-docs are currently employed in the project. The intention is to expand the project with an initial budget of $1 million per annum, to be increased with time. The Director of Research will also co-ordinate activities with Epigene Austalia an industry lead research collaboration provided by Jim’s Group, Australia’s largest franchise network, and by ISN Psychology. These agreements provide both a secure level of funding and access to a large number of research students (Honours and Master level students). This is a commercially-oriented research program with defined aims, though with ample scope for creative and flexible thinking into the achievement of these aims. ]

  • Postdoctoral and PhD positions - Does Nicotiana attenuata make adaptive mate-choice decisions and if so, how does it do it?
    3-year Post Doctoral and PhD positions for creative biologists and chemists and independence to utilize the tools of this remarkable molecular/ecological toolbox to explore hypotheses about the mechanisms and functional consequences of mate-choice in N. attenuata. The self-compatible Nicotiana attenuata grows in genetically diverse populations after fires and produces flowers that remain open for three days and are visited by assorted pollinators. This native tobacco consistently selects particular mates from mixed pollen loads of multiple mates, all of which are equally fecund in single genotype pollinations. This consistent mate selection is strongly positively correlated with a stylar post-pollination ethylene burst and the termination of floral advertisement. Mate selection occurs via differential pollen tube growth in the upper stylar track and requires ethylene signaling (see Bhattacharya, S. and I.T. Baldwin. 2012. The Plant Journal 71(4), 587–601). We have recently discovered that components of a Solanaceous self-incompatibility (SI) mechanism, particularly stylar-expressed RNase I/II, have been repurposed to play central roles in this pre-zygotic mate selection process (see  Guo, H., Halitschke, R., Wielsch, N., Gase, K., Baldwin, I. T. (2019) (2019). Mate selection in self-compatible wild tobacco results from coordinated variation in homologous self-incompatibility genes. Current Biology, 27(12), 2020-2030. doi:10.1016/j.cub.2019.05.042). We would like to advance the work by understanding the relationship between the post-pollination ethylene burst and the activity of S-RNase I/II in natural accessions and utilize a MAGIC-RIL population, that captures a majority of the genetic diversity of this species (see Ray, R., Li, D., Halitschke, R., Baldwin, I. T. (2019). Using natural variation to achieve a whole-plant functional understanding of the responses mediated by jasmonate signaling. The Plant Journal. doi:10.1111/tpj.14331.), to conduct a forward genetic analysis of the mate-selection mechanisms. A 24-port laser photoacoustic spectrometer capable of high-throughput quantifications of stylar ethylene emissions as well as stable transgenic plants with silenced ethylene signaling and S-RNAse activity and a virus-induced gene silencing toolbox for testing the function of candidate genes are available to support the research. We are also interested in understanding in the adaptive function of these mate choice decisions and are evaluating if the offspring of selected mates survive in the seedbank differently than do non-selected mates and are interested in uncovering traits that might be sexually selected and important for the survival of seeds in the hostile below-ground environment. Over the past three decades we have created a molecular-ecological toolbox for Nicotiana attenuata, a native diploid tobacco that grows in the Great Basin Desert, to understand how this native plant survives in the real world. The toolbox is composed of three support platforms (molecular, analytical and ecological) which includes state-of-art molecular biological, genetic and analytical resources comparable or better than what you can find dispersed across the entire Arabidopsis community, but also a field station located in a nature preserve in the plant’s native habitat in SW Utah, at which communities of transgenic plants, harboring silencing and over-expression constructs for plant and insect (for plant-mediated RNAi) genes are regularly planted to test hypotheses about gene function. For more information about these toolboxes see our webpages: http://www.ice.mpg.de/ext/index.php?id=molecular-ecology How to apply: Please address your application to Prof. Ian Baldwin, and send to: attn: Melanie Wilson at application@ice.mpg.de. Your application should include the following documents: - a detailed CV - a summary of your previous research experience - a statement of research interests - a short statement how you would take advantage of the N. attenuata toolbox - contact information for at least two references Phone interviews with suitable candidates will be conducted by Prof. Ian Baldwin who may then request a written proposal, followed by an invitation for a seminar. The positions are available immediately and will remain open until filled. ]

  • PostDoc Scientist (f/m/d) (PhD in Physics)
    PostDoc Scientist (f/m/d) (PhD in Physics) The HZB microscopy group develops novel methods for X-ray imaging to make use out of the unique interactions of X-rays with matter. For this, X-ray optics for the 10 nm scale characterization of the nanostructure, chemical nature, and composition of materials with high energy resolution are engineered and fabricated. We have developed a novel full-field transmission X-ray microscope (TXM) for the soft X-ray range that uses partially-coherent object illumination instead of the quasi-coherent illumination used in earlier setups. This TXM had demonstrated its high potential for life sciences by nano-tomography of cryogenic samples. High resolution images of cryogenic thick biological specimens with 3-D resolution around 30 nm ( half-pitch) have been achieved. Additionally, due to the high energy resolution spatially-resolved NEXAFS studies (NEXAFS-TXM) for material sciences are possible. An incorporated fluorescence light microscope was developed. This permits to record fluorescence, bright field and DIC images of cryogenic samples (cells) inside the TXM. Thus, two complementary imaging modalities are available and allow correlative studies. Tasks Supervision of the HZB full-field X-ray microscope incl. PGM beamline at the U41 undulator Support of users in the fields of materials and life sciences as well as energy materials, including support of sample preparation Recording of tomography and spectroscopy datasets in the X-ray microscope at BESSY II and data analysis Development of novel imaging procedures for X-ray imaging Further development of correlative light and X-ray microscopy Requirements PhD in Physics Excellent knowledge in Optics Prof. Dr. Gerd Schneider +49 30 8062-13131 gerd.schneider@helmholtz-berlin.de ]

  • Postdoc (4.5 years): Modelling species persistence to climate change
    At the University of Greifswald in the DFG-funded Research Training Group RTG 2010 – “Biological responses to novel and changing environments – RESPONSE“, there is a job vacancy expected to be available from 01 October 2019 for a full-time Research Assistant/Postdoc: Modelling species persistence to climate change. The fixed-term contract is for the period of 4.5 years. A later start of employment is generally possible, resulting in a correspondingly shorter length of contract. Payment will be made according to pay group 13 TV-L Wissenschaft. The position is suitable for part-time employment. Detailed task description: How organisms are able to react to global change is one of the most pressing contemporary research questions. By studying a wide range of organisms, from both aquatic and terrestrial habitats and with varying life histories, RESPONSE focuses on the plastic and genetic capacity for in-situ responses to changing environments, and the factors that influence the colonisation of new habitats. With this integrative and comparative approach, we aim to enhance the understanding of the limits of species persistence in order to facilitate more accurate projections on the fate of species under changing environmental conditions in plants, animals and, microorganisms. The programme also spans different levels of biological organisation, ranging from molecular, physiological and behavioural mechanisms at an individual level to population-level responses. For further information about RESPONSE see https://biologie.uni-greifswald.de/forschung/dfg-graduiertenkollegs/research-training-group-2010/ Current population persistence models or hybrid SDMs (species distribution models) require data on genetic variance, phenotypic plasticity, and either environmental sensitivity of selection or dispersal capacity and species distribution. These parameters have been or will be quantified within the different individual projects of RESPONSE. Here, advanced hybrid model frameworks such as AdaptR (Ecol Lett 19: 1468) shall be used to evaluate species persistence to climate change across taxa. Close collaboration with the developers of AdaptR, A. Bush and K. Mokany, is possible. This will allow the postdoctoral researcher to work together closely with these leading experts in the field of hybrid models. At least one of them will come to Greifswald for extended stays to support the postdoctoral research. The postdoctoral researcher will also be provided with own funds for travelling. In addition to modelling persistence of the single target species in RESPONSE in collaboration with the respective doctoral researchers, the postdoc will focus in particular on understanding when and where genetic adaptation might aid species persistence. The postdoc shall closely interact with all RESPONSE subprojects and integrate their empirical data in up-to-date models for estimating species persistence. The postdoc will find a stimulating environment for developing his/her own scientific career by using high quality empirical data from a broad range of organisms. This announcement is directed at all persons, no matter which gender. The University would like to increase the proportion of women in areas in which they are underrepresented and thus applications from women are particularly welcome and will be treated with priority if they have the same qualifications and as long as there are no clear reasons which make a fellow applicant more suitable.

  • FAPESP PosDoc in Magnetic Spectroelectrochemical SERS Sensor
    Spectroelectrochemical SERS sensors based on selective plasmonic Raman probes associated with superparamagnetic nanoparticles Abstract: Silver and gold nanoparticles have been extensively employed as SERS probes for the detection of chemical and biological species. Our proposal starts with the development of SERS probes; exploring, in the sequence, their association with  superparamagnetic nanoparticles aiming the magnetic confinement on electrode surfaces. Finally, it focus on the spectroelectrochemical response of the plasmonic, magnetic, electrochemical sensor. Magnetic confinement of the conjugated nanoparticles will enhance the SERS signals, and by scanning the potentials, it will be possible to probe the redox species generated on the magnetic SERS probes, monitoring their spectroelectrochemical Raman signals. Proposal The SERS effect refers to the enhancement of the Raman signals of substrates by the local magnetic electric fields in resonance with the surface plasmons. It can involve a mechanism encompassing electromagnetic and chemical influences (Charge-Transfer and resonance SERS). We are particularly interested in the chemical mechanisms, where the coupling of the electronic levels of the molecules and the surface plasmons leads to the selective enhancement of the vibrational peaks of the atomic groups or molecular species interacting at the metal-ligand interface, and are susceptible to electrochemical changes. The association of the plasmonic nanoparticles with superparamagnetic nanoparticles allows their transfer to the electrode surfaces, and to explore the magnetic concentration of the SERS probes, under the influence of magnetic field and applied potentials. This approach will be explored to design new, versatile spectroelectrochemical magnetic/SERS sensors. The research work involves the synthesis and characterization of plasmonic and magnetic nanoparticles, and their functionalization with selected molecules such as trimercaptotriazine, mercaptopyridine, nucleic bases, ruthenium complexes, and polymers. It will be required previous experience in plasmonics, superparamagnetism, nanomaterials, Raman, electroanalytical chemistry, and SERS. The laboratory is well equipped for electrochemistry, FTIR, thermal analysis, electronic diode-array and fiber optics spectroscopy, luminescence, dynamic light scattering, confocal Raman microscopy, dark field hyperspectral microscopy, vibrational FTIR microscopy, atomic force microscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence, and computational facilities. ]

  • PhD Scholarships available: Marine Biology and Aquaculture
    Marine Biology and Aquaculture  at JCU provides access to a unique tropical learning environment with research stations, state-of-the-art laboratories and the Great Barrier Reef right on our doorstep. Studying with us positions you to understand, protect and manage our marine resources, or to investigate alternative and innovative ways to establish and maintain sustainable fishing and aquaculture industries. The Marine Biology and Aquaculture departments are inviting applications for PhD Scholarships from both domestic and international students for the following projects: Large number of topics are listed in the webpage: Marine Biology and Aquaculture Research Projects In addition to the above listed projects, some specific projects are available for immediate start as listed below. Combating summer mortality in abalone: can a little bit of stress be beneficial? Summer mortality is a phenomenon that causes mass dies offs of molluscs during the summer months. Summer mortality affected molluscs include many economically important animals including; oysters, mussels, clams, scallops and abalone. The condition occurs in both natural and aquaculture environments and represents a considerable and increasing threat towards aquaculture and fisheries industries world-wide. Genetic factors play an important role in susceptibility and resilience to summer mortality. Recent work by our group has detected significantly different gene expression signatures in abalone that were found to be resilient to summer mortality than those that were found to be susceptible. Some of these genes were found to have antioxidant and immune–related functions. Research in other marine species shows that inducing a slight stress response ahead of a more significant stressor (e.g. disease or high temperature) can be somewhat protective. This is yet to be explored in a research setting for abalone, either within or between generations, but could provide a useful tool for combating summer mortality events, thereby providing benefits to the aquaculture industry. This PhD project will employ manipulative experiments carried out within the Marine and Aquaculture Research Facilities Unit (MARFU) at JCU and employ the latest genomic and bioinformatics techniques in order to investigate whether slight stressor(s) can provide a protective effect against summer mortality in abalone and if so what molecular mechanism is responsible. Contact: Associate Professor Jan Strugnell - jan.strugnell@jcu.edu.au The influence of mangrove settings on nursery and fish habitat values Mangroves are widely recognised as valuable fish habitats; in particular as nurseries for juveniles of important fisheries species. However, the term mangrove encompasses a range of species growing in a diversity of settings (e.g. estuarine, coastal, island), on a range of sediment types, in areas of differing salinity, and across a broad geographic range with a variety of tidal regimes. This diversity of types and settings provides the potential for substantial differences in the details of functioning and, consequently, substantial differences in the services they provide to fish and so in their value as fish habitats. This project will use cutting-edge, artificial intelligence-enhanced video and sensor studies to compare the use by fish and physical conditions across a range of settings, with the aim of determining how the value of mangroves varies over space and time. Contact: Professor Marcus Sheaves - marcus.sheaves@jcu.edu.au Extent and use of subtidal habitat by fish in tropical estuaries The value of subtidal habitats, located below the low tide mark, to fish in tropical estuaries is not known, yet.  These areas include timber snags, oyster reefs, sandy/mud habitats and seagrass.  This study will map the extent and distribution of subtidal habitats, examine their use by fisheries using underwater video and artificial intelligence processing, and examine their structural complexity and role in the broader seascape.  The student will work with green engineers, managers and industry partners that are looking to invest in major restoration projects. Contact: Dr Nathan Waltham – Nathan.waltham@jcu.edu.au Developing genetic tools for establishing seafood provenance (Strategic Scholarship) Establishing seafood provenance is becoming increasingly important for the sustainable development of both fisheries and aquaculture industries.  Visual identification of a product to species level, or even much higher taxonomic levels, is frequently impossible, particularly after processing either at sea or on land.  It is important for the future development of both fisheries and aquaculture industries to establish that product substitution has not occurred and that products do not contain “filler” species (ie contain more than the single named species).  Establishing the geographic or population of origin, and making that information available across the supply chain, is also becoming more important to the consumer and the industry.  The current revolution in molecular laboratory and sequencing techniques means that a range of methods for establishing seafood provenance are emerging and these promise more rapid assessment than has been possible previously. This project will take advantage of the latest genetic techniques to develop methods for establishing the provenance of key Australian seafood species. This project will be supported by a scholarship from Food Agility Cooperative Research Centre; a $150M, 10 year, innovation hub supporting digital innovation in Australia’s agri-foods sector. The scholarship includes a stipend of $35,000 p.a. for a maximum of 3 years and the project will be supported by up to $10,000 p.a. operating funds. The Scholarship is available to both domestic and international applicants wishing to undertake a PhD or Masters by research degree. For applicants already holding a higher degree by research scholarship from James Cook University, the scholarship may be converted to a top-up of $10,000 p.a. with $5,000 p.a. in additional project operating funds. Applicants are encouraged to contact the Principal Supervisor, Associate Professor Jan Strugnell (jan.strugnell@jcu.edu.au) to discuss their proposal and will then be required to download an application template from Food Agility CRC via https://www.foodagility.com/researchers-apply.

  • Post Doc in Marine Trace Metal and Isotope Biogeochemistry
       The Department of Ocean System Research (OCS) is looking for a highly motivated post doc with a background in marine trace metal biogeochemistry and with an interest in the cycling of iron and iron isotopes as well as other bio-active metals (Principal investigator dr. Rob Middag). LOCATION: ROYAL NIOZ TEXEL (THE NETHERLANDS) VACANCY ID: 2019 - 30 CLOSING DATE:  07th of September 2019 THE RESEARCH Researchers in the Department Ocean System Research (OCS) study open-ocean processes from a variety of disciplines, ranging from physical and chemical oceanography, marine geology, paleoceanography to deep-sea ecology. We investigate the oceans in the past and present, to assess their future role. We make use of experiments and data collection during sea-going oceanographic research, as well as laboratory experiments and analyses in our home base on Texel. The department works around the globe, from the Antarctic to the Arctic, from the Caribbean to the North Sea. One of the areas we work in is the North Atlantic Ocean. Researchers within OCS focus on the biogeochemical cycles of trace elements and their isotopes (TEI’s) in the global ocean and are active in the International GEOTRACES program. Many trace elements are essential for marine life and as such influence ocean ecosystems and the global carbon cycle. Advances in sampling and innovative analytical techniques make it possible to study the cycles of TEI’s at unprecedented scale and in ever more detail. Specifically for iron, it is not only apparent that this micro-nutrient plays a pivotal role in the ocean, but also that the cycle of iron is changing due to ongoing climate change. However, our current understanding of the marine iron cycle still does not allow reliable biogeochemical modelling to predict and evaluate the consequences of these changes. Particularly processes such as biological metal uptake, remineralization and dissolved-particle interactions in both the water column and benthic boundary layer are not sufficiently understood, nor the susceptibility of these processes to change. THE PROJECT This project is part of the NWO Vidi grant recently awarded to Rob Middag, “Trace metals and the Arctic-Atlantic gateway in a changing world, local processes and global connections (MetalGate)”. In this project we will investigate the cycling of iron and its isotopes as well as other bio-active metals in the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian-Sea region, the main gateway between the Arctic and Atlantic Ocean. We will combine trace metal and isotopic measurements with temperature controlled bio-assays at ecologically relevant conditions and develop sampling techniques to study the processes and interactions in the benthic boundary layer. The project will be focused around an expedition aboard our research vessel ‘Pelagia’ to the high latitude North Atlantic and the seas surrounding Iceland where we will use the NIOZ Titan sampling and CTD system for trace metals as well as state-of-the- art temperature-controlled deck incubators. Prior to the expedition, a new trace metal clean sampler for sampling of the benthic boundary layer will be developed and tested together with experienced NIOZ technicians. The expedition will be a GEOTRACES process study and various international collaborators will be involved. THE CANDIDATE We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a PhD in chemical oceanography or a related area with proven ability to publish research in international peer reviewed journals. You have experience in marine trace metal sampling and analysis, and experience with iron isotope analysis is of advantage. Participation in an oceanographic research expedition is an essential part of the project and due to the international character of the research team, it is crucial you are proficient in spoken and written English. Your position will be hosted by the Department of Ocean Systems (OCS) at the Royal NIOZ on the isle of Texel. CONDITIONS Employment of this position at Royal NIOZ is by NWO (The Netherlands Organization of Scientific Research). We offer a position for 3 (fulltime) years with an excellent salary, a pension scheme, a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary, a year-end bonus, and flexible work arrangements. You may expect attractive secondary employment conditions. We offer generous relocation expenses for employees coming from abroad and support with finding accommodation. MORE INFORMATION For additional information about this vacancy, please contact Rob Middag (Principal investigator) or prof. dr. Gert-Jan Reichart (department head). For additional information about the procedure, please contact Alexandra Noppeney (senior HR advisor). Learn more about the Department of Ocean Systems here. Interviews will be held on Texel on October 2nd 2019

  • Postdoc position in multi-sensory processing in infants
    The goal is to examine the influence of olfactory cues on the development of social cognition and its underlying processes in newborns (postnatal days 1-3), and in 3- to 12-month-old infants, and premature infants. The candidate will be part of a project that seek to determine how olfaction modulates the development of visual perception of social cues in faces. The project will examine the influence of familiar and unfamiliar odors on face processing in both neonates and infants during the first year of life by using infant research paradigms (e.g., habituation, visual paired comparison, visual search tasks, etc). Mechanisms underlying social cognition processing will be inferred from gaze behavior (i.e., looking times by video recording, or by eye-tracking), and psychophysiological measures such as heart rate and respiratory changes. Research will be held in the Newborn Babylab (Dijon Hospital, France) and the Young Infant Babylab (Centre des Sciences du Goût et de l’Alimentation, CSGA, France). The research fellow will participate in all levels of the research investigation, including design, data collection, overseeing of data processing, data analysis, and manuscript preparation.
