Gill development, inflammation and remodelling

 

Throughout the lifecourse our respiratory system is exposed to a number of assaults such as pollutants (diesel particulates, nitric oxide, silica, cigarette smoke etc) and a variety of pathogens and allergens.  Prolonged or repetitive insults can lead to irreversible damage of the lung. In order to address this, whilst one approach is to reduce exposure to such harmful irritants, another is to identify molecular pathways that could be targeted to improve the outcome of such damaging exposure and enhance tissue repair.

 

Using the zebrafish as a model organism we have found that the fish gill can be used to model the inflammatory response of mammalian lung. We have gone on to find that the zebrafish has an extremely efficient gill repair mechanism and is very resilient to injury compared to mammals which are prone to develop irreversible fibrosis consequent to similar assaults.

 

We have identified candidate genes that are upregulated in fish and downregulated in mammals during biological processes leading to scaring and fibrosis in mammals. The fibins fall into this category. Taking advantage of such differences between fish and mammalian systems, this project aims to discover the function of these poorly described genes (the fibins) that otherwise play a critical role in fish development.

 

The Dallman lab is looking for a talented and motivated PhD student to study this gene pathway. Experimental approaches will include gene cloning, imaging, gene expression analysis, transgenic fish maintenance. Funded by BBSRC and Boehringer Ingelheim the student will work closely with our industrial partners, including some visits to their sites.

 

Main location:

Imperial College London, Department of Life Sciences, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, South Kensington, London

 

Eligibility:  

Candidates should hold, an Upper Second Class Honours BSc degree or better or an equivalent qualification. Candidates with a Masters degree (at Merit level or better) in addition to the BSc may be given preference. They should have a strong academic background in the biological sciences and a desire to pursue research in line with that of the research group.  

Posts are open to UK nationals. EU nationals, who have spent at least 3 years prior to the application resident in the UK, are also eligible to apply. Non-UK/EU candidates are not eligible. 

Funding from BBSRC and Boehringer Ingelheim will cover tuition fees for the four year duration of the studentship, contribution towards project costs, and an annual tax-free stipend at the standard Research Council rate, for 2018/2019- £16,777. This stipend will increase in line with the annual GDP deflator.

How to apply: 

To apply for this position, please email a single PDF file including: a brief cover letter describing your relevant interests and research experience, your c.v. and names and contact information of three referees with the subject line “fibins PhD” to Prof Maggie Dallman and Dr Laurence Bugeon; m.dallman@imperial.ac.uk, l.bugeon@imperial.ac.uk

• Finalists will be invited for interviews to take place in December 2018 


Earliest Start Date 

• January 1, 2019 


Background and Objectives: The world’s most compelling and difficult problems are complex. Fully addressing the challenges of climate change, for example, requires understanding weather patterns, the relationship of health and disease to environment/diet, coastal architecture, energy policy, city planning, human behavior, truth in media, social justice, international relations, big data, and many other fields. A key goal of the University of Miami (UM) is to serve as a center of inquiry in which scholars from multiple disciplines can work together to pursue innovation, in areas where the world needs them most. UM’s diversity, found in our 11 schools and colleges, provides unique advantages for junior scholars to explore and successfully address such problems. 

The University of Miami Laboratory for INtegrative Knowledge (U-LINK) seeks applications from postdoctoral scholars who desire to pursue such problem-based interdisciplinary research. The U-LINK Postdoctoral Fellowship requires the scholar to seek mentorship from at least two UM faculty representing a minimum of two distinct disciplines. We especially encourage proposals that tackle problems aligning with UM’s Roadmap To Our New Century initiative (http://roadmap.miami.edu); e.g., addressing environmental challenges, engineering smart/connected cities, promoting health and wellness, cultivating a culture of belonging, and applying the potential of big data to global issues. The U-LINK Postdoctoral Fellowship, comprising a stipend of $60K/year, a generous benefit package, and a spending allowance of $10K/yr, is an attractive opportunity for mature, innovative junior researchers with the ability and desire to operate in an interdisciplinary environment. 

Eligibility: The U-LINK Postdoctoral Fellowship is intended for exceptional junior scholars who have recently earned their doctoral degree. Awardees must have completed their degree requirements to begin their fellowship, and may not have had more than 2 years of total postdoctoral experience, nor been employed as an assistant professor, associate professor, professor, or equivalent rank, at the time of fellowship initiation. 

Application Process: Candidates must engage with their proposed UM mentors to develop an interdisciplinary project, complete an online application no later than October 10, 2018 by 5PM EST, and have three letters of recommendation sent directly to klamper@miami.edu. Each letter should include the title, affiliation, and contact information for each recommender. Finalists will be invited for interviews to take place in December 2018.

Evaluation Criteria 

Applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria: 

• Track record of the applicant 

• Likelihood of conducting original, interdisciplinary work with societal relevance 

• Appropriateness of mentors and/or team members at UM to address the problem 

• Potential to advance the career of the applicant 

• Strength of the mentoring team 


Successful applicants will demonstrate the capacity to address a significant societal problem with interdisciplinary and synergistic approaches. The team (applicant + UM mentors) will comprise accomplished or promising researchers and scholars from any academic disciplines. Teams will need to demonstrate the use of innovative approaches, processes and/or technologies.
