UK/EU PhD Scholarship Biological Sciences 2011 at Uni of Hull UK

UK/EU PhD Scholarship Biological Sciences 2011 at Uni of Hull UK on May 10th, 2011University of Hull: job description Revealing the Routes to Biodiversity

To celebrate the University АавтТаТ╣s research successes, the University of Hull is offering one UK/EU PhD Scholarship for candidates applying for the following project

Closing date Tuesday 31st May 2011;

Studentships will start in September 2011
Supervisor: Dr Chris Venditti
Email: C.Venditti@hull. ac.uk
Telephone: +44 (0)1482 46 2077
Department: Biological Sciences
Co-Supervisor( s): Dr Dave Lunt, Biological Sciences

This studentship will aim to understand the origin and evolution of wide-scale patterns of diversity in animals. It is currently not clear how environmental factors interact with speciation, extinction, and genetic and morphological rates of change to produce diversity. It is often assumed that these different measures of diversity are closely tied; for example, where there are more species we would expect greater morphological diversity. There is a growing
literature that suggests this is not the case: reproductive isolations can occur with little or no genetic change; genetically very closely related species can have wildly divergent morphologies; some large groups of species can be indistinguishable from gross morphology where as other, species-poor, groups are diverse. If this is the case how does diversity accumulate?

The student will address this question using cutting-edge statistical phylogenetic comparative
methods applied to multiple datasets encompassing a wide range of animal groups. The studentship has the potential to contribute to a real quantitative science of macroevolution and has implications for life history, ecology, evolutionary biology, conservation and population biology. Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Chris Venditti (C.Venditti@ hull. ac.uk).

This full-time UK/EU PhD Scholarship will include fees at the АавтТаТ╝home/EUАавтТаТ╜ student rate and maintenance (АавтТвм Аав┬в├Тв┬г13,590 in 2011/12, subject to final confirmation) for three years, depending on satisfactory progress.

PhD students at the University of Hull follow modules for research and transferable skills development and gain a Masters level Certificate, or Diploma, in Research Training, in addition to their research degree. Successful applicants will be informed of the award by 11th July.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (CDF) Identification of novel regulators of senescence

MRC Clinical Sciences Centre: job description
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (CDF)
(3 Year Post)
Identification of novel regulators of senescence
MRC Band 4 Salary £30,124- £35,860 pa inclusive
London W12

Applications are invited for a 3-year postdoctoral research position within the Cell Proliferation Group at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre in London. We are looking for a highly motivated post-doc interested in joining our friendly and international team. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on one of several open projects involving the identification and characterization of novel senescence regulators by combining genetic screenings and expression profiles of inducible systems of senescence.

Our lab has previously take advantage of similar approaches to identify a self-amplifying network involving the chemokine receptor CXCR2 and its ligands, such as IL-8, in senescence reinforcement (Acosta et al. 2008 Cell). Recently we demonstrated how senescence can limit the efficiency of reprogramming to induced pluripotent stem cells (Banito et al. 2009 Genes Dev). We have also a long-standing interest on the INK4a/ARF and have identified different epigenetic mechanisms involved in its regulation, including Polycomb repressive complexes (Gil et al. 2004 Nat. Cell Bioi), histone demethylases (Barradas et al. 2009 Genes Dev) and non-coding RNAs (Yap et al. 2010 Mol Cell).

Candidates should be highly motivated, committed and have clear career goals. Experience in senescence, cancer research or genetic screens would be useful, but is not essential. A strong background in molecular and cellular biology is required. Experience working with primary cells, familiarity with retroviral and lentiviral systems, previous work with RNAi or with high content microscopy systems such as InCell 100 would be highly valued. All applicants should have a
Ph.D. degree in life sciences or equivalent experience and at least one first-author publication published or in press.

The Clinical Sciences Centre, which is directly funded by the Medical Research Council, is associated with Imperial College. The CSC and Imperial College provide excellent core facilities and support structures, including automated microscopy systems, next generation sequence and proteomics. The Cell Proliferation Group is part of the Epigenetics, Development and Cancer Section and offers interactions with groups studying cell cycle, cancer, and chromatin organization.

Gremany PhD position in cell biology at Univ Mainz Institut for Pathologie

The Institute of Pathology in Mainz has a PhD position available. The project focuses on the role of unfolded protein response (UPR) in the wound healing. UPR is a signalling pathway that inhibits translation in response to unfolded proteins and at the same time induces the expression of specific proteins, such as chaperones. Wound healing is connected to the increased protein synthesis that makes UPR and chaperones essential. Endothelial cells play an important
role in the wound healing by participating in both inflammation and angiogenesis. The project will, therefore, concentrate on the role of UPR in endothelial cells during different stages of the wound healing. The work will be done with human primary endothelial cells and will include various biochemical, molecular- and cell-biology techniques.

The candidate should hold a master's degree or equivalent in biology or related discipline. A strong background and practical experience in cell and molecular biology is preferred. We are seeking an individual with the ability to work independently in a multidisciplinary group, high motivation and strong English skills

The position is available from 01.07.2011 for 2 years with the possibility of extension. The salary is paid according to TV-L 13 (50 %). Disabled candidates will be preferred if equally qualified.

PhD candidate in Environmental Economics PhD candidate in Environmental Economics

Research project Global market-based instruments for the protection of biodiversity

The aim of a newly established and ambitious research team (with funding from a NWO-VIDI grant) is to develop global economic policy instruments to protect biodiversity and ecosystem services. The research team, consisting of two PhD students and a VIDI laureate, will pursue the following three key objectives:

1. development of an indicator for biodiversity as a leverage point for global economic instruments (PhD-project ecology)

2. development of economic policy instruments for protecting global biodiversity and associated ecosystem services (PhD-project economics)

3. development of moral principles for international allocation of responsibilities (burden-sharing) to protect global biodiversity

This project is unique in at least two ways. First, it explicitly investigates the long-term situation at a global level, and second, it takes a truly interdisciplinary approach integrating ecology, economics and moral philosophy.

Tasks
The specific task of the PhD student economics is threefold:
1. to analyze and evaluate different designs of existing global market-based instruments for protecting biodiversity and ecosystem services

2. to analyse and evaluate existing financial transactions and monetary flows between countries and their impacts on biodiversity protection and trade

3. to design and evaluate alternative cost-effective and efficient economic policy instruments for the protection of global biodiversity and associated ecosystem services

The PhD student will be jointly supervised by the lead researcher from IBED and Prof. Roy Brouwer from the Department of Environmental Economics at the Institute for Environmental Studies, VU University Amsterdam.

Requirements
¢ the candidate has an MSc in (Environmental) Economics or Econometrics
¢ expertise with mathematical models and/or statistical analysis is recommended, preferably with respect to market-based instruments for environmental protection
¢ the candidate should have an excellent academic record (including list of examination marks) and a curious, creative mind
¢ the candidate should be able to write scientific articles and reports (to be proven by your graduation thesis or comparable report) and be fluent in English both in writing and speech

Conditions of employment

PhD position - The external dimension of EU regulatory governance

University of Amsterdam (UvA) - PhD position - The external dimension of EU regulatory governance

PhD position - The external dimension of EU regulatory governance

Job description
The PhD candidate will undertake research on the external dimension of EU regulatory governance in one or more substantive policy fields linked to the European internal market and the global trading regime. Possible policy fields to be studied include financial regulation, competition/ anti-trust, data privacy, product safety (e.g. food and drug safety, GMOs, chemicals),
environmental protection (e.g. control of illegal logging, transboundary water management, climate change), food security, and development cooperation.

The position is funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) research project ‘Global Reordering: Evolution through European Networks (GR:EEN)’, and forms part of a work package on ‘Global Public Policy: Trade and Finance’ directed at the University of Amsterdam by Prof. Jonathan Zeitlin and Dr Daniel Mügge. This work package focuses on the extension of new or ‘experimentalist’ forms of governance developed for the regulation of the European internal market to relations with the EU’s trading partners, and their potential contribution to emerging arrangements for global regulatory governance in a rising multi-polar world.

Over the past fifteen years, the EU has developed a new architecture of experimentalist governance based on framework rule-making and revision through recursive review of comparative implementation experience in diverse local contexts. Experimentalist governance architectures of this type have become pervasively institutionalized in the EU across a wide and growing array of
policy domains. They take a variety of organizational forms, including networked agencies, councils of national regulators, open methods of coordination, and operational cooperation among front-line officials, often in combination with one another (Sabel and Zeitlin 2008, 2010). Key questions to be addressed in this research project include how far, through what mechanisms, and with what results the revisable framework rules and experimentalist governance processes
developed within the European internal market are or may be being extended to the wider world, together with the reciprocal interaction of these efforts with the multilateral trading regime and other emerging forms of global or transnational regulatory governance.

Requirements
The candidate must have a relevant MA degree (or equivalent) in political science or a related social science discipline (including law). Candidates should demonstrate interest in and knowledge of EU and/or global and transnational governance. Excellent oral and written command of English is essential. Experience with qualitative research methods is recommended.

Tasks
* Empirical research and writing of a PhD dissertation
* Producing and publishing academic papers, individually or in collaboration with other members of the research team
* Active participation in the work package research team, which may include organizational tasks for conferences and workshops
* Participation in and presentation of research to conferences, workshops, and meetings organized within the framework of the larger GREEN projectConditions of employment

We offer a fixed-term position for three years, 38 hours per week, beginning 1 September 2011. The gross monthly salary will be €2042 in the first year and €2492 in the third year in case of a full-time position (38 hrs/week). Secondary working conditions at Dutch universities are attractive and include 8% holiday pay and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus.

PhD position Computational Systems Genetics : Netherlands

University of Groningen, Groningen Bioinformatics Centre: job description

Job description
As part of an international collaborative project with MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA), we make use of Next Generation Sequencing data (RNA-seq) in the mouse in response to macrophage infection. This project provides an unprecedented platform for the next generation geneticists to explore the complex causes underlying phenotypic variation in a host-pathogen context. Variation in molecular and phenotypic traits can be correlated to DNA sequence variation using the methods of quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping. In addition, the correlation structure in the molecular and phenotypic traits can be informative for inferring the underlying molecular networks and causative genes (causal inference).

The data size (‘big data’) calls for creative and efficient analysis and tools. We are specifically seeking someone interested to develop the statistical and computational methods and software for high-throughput ‘big data’ in the context of this project.

Qualifications
You are a university graduate at MSc level in one of the following disciplines: computer science, bioinformatics, statistics, mathematics, theoretical biology, population/evolutio nary genetics, physics. A proven ability to perform creative interdisciplinary research is required for this position.

We also expect a pro-active attitude and the ability to initiate and execute research lines independently. Excellent communication and reporting skills are necessary. You should be able to write scientific articles and reports (to be proven by your graduation thesis or another comparable report) and be fluent in English language (written and verbal). Only applications with a clear, concrete and personal ‘statement of interest’ for this project will be considered.

Organisation
The University of Groningen is one of the largest and oldest research universities of The Netherlands. It ranks among the top 200 universities in the world (The Times World University Rankings, 2010-2011). The Groningen Bioinformatics Centre (GBiC) is one of the leading bioinformatics groups in Europe.
