Post doctoral position (2yrs starting Oct 2018)

The impact of Pesticide exposure on neuro/cardiovascular development.

The Institute of functional genomics, Montpellier, France

 

 

The harmful effects of poisonous high-levels of environmental pollutants and intoxication to the central nervous (CNS) and cardiovascular systems are proven, e.g., acute neurological symptoms, cognitive and psychomotor dysfunction, and cardiovascular diseases. Surprisingly, insufficient information is available concerning the impact of exposure to pesticide cocktails, as found in agricultural food products. Public relevance further grows when considering the effects that a cocktail of pollutants could have during development, in particular to forming brain and cardio-vascular structures.

We require a post-doctoral researcher to test the hypothesis that exposure to pesticide cocktails during development, in compositions and dosages pertinent to environmental contamination and to consumers, may result in neuro- and cardio-vascular defects. Primarily he/she will use the zebrafish that has proven to be an excellent vertebrate model for studying neuro-vascular and cardio-vascular development. In particular the researcher will develop i) a fast and effective in vivo screening of neuro- and cardio-vascular changes induced by environmental pollutants exposure, unveiling the pathological contribution of each of the cocktail components; ii) spatio-temporal 2-Photon reconstructions of the developing neuro- and cardio-vascular structures exploiting ad hoc transgenic zebrafish; iii) identify the genetic signature consequent to the exposure to pollutant cocktails during brain and cardiac development.  

The ideal candidate will have experience working with zebrafish, and will be familiar with immunohistochemistry, 2 photon microscopy and basic molecular biology.

Deadline for applications- July 2018

Project description
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified >100 genetic loci that are robustly associated with the risk of diabetes. With few exceptions, the causal genes in these loci are currently unknown. Before results from GWAS can be translated into the clinic - for example as novel biomarkers or drug targets - we need to identify and characterize the causal genes in these loci. Recent developments in CRISPR-Cas9-based mutagenesis, high-throughput imaging, and image-based analyses have highlighted the zebrafish as a promising model system for systematic, large-scale genetic screens. 
The overall aim of the proposed project is to identify and characterize causal genes in GWAS-identified loci for diabetes using zebrafish model systems.

Work description:
The position is funded by an international collaborative grant that aims to characterize diabetes candidate genes using human beta-cells (Oxford), drosophila (Stanford) and zebrafish (Uppsala). The zebrafish arm of the project includes: 1) designing and testing of CRISPR-Cas9 gRNAs for efficiency; 2) generating and maintaining mutant lines using a multiplex approach, i.e. studying the effect of multiple genes simultaneously; 3) imaging diabetes-related traits using an automated positioning system and fluorescence microscope; 4) preparing samples for enzymatic assessment of whole-body lipid and glucose levels and paired-end sequencing; 5) objective quantification of image-based data; 6) quality control and analysis of sequencing results; 7) integration of multidisciplinary data and statistical analysis; and 8) dissemination of results into manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.

Qualifications:
Applications are accepted from highly motivated candidates with a PhD in Molecular Biology, Molecular Epidemiology, or similar.
Applicants must have a documented and broad competence in basic molecular biology methodology. A successful candidate should be a highly motivated, organized, reliable team player that can also work independently and is proficient in communicating in English, both orally and in writing. 

Merits:
Prior knowledge and experience in fluorescence microscopy, epidemiology, bioinformatics, programming and/or image-based analyses are a bonus.

The application should include a cover letter describing yourself, your research interests and your experience relevant to this position; a CV/resume; a verified list of course grades; a list of publications; and contact details for at least two reference persons. If available, letters of recommendation can also be included. 

Salary: According to individual qualifications

Start date: as soon as possible
