A fully financed PhD-fellowship can be offered as part of an international collaborative project between Department of Biomedicine & DANDRITE, Aarhus University and Donders Centre for Neuroscience, Radboud University aiming at studying the pathophysiology of axons, nerve terminals and the endoplasmic reticulum in relation to Parkinson’s disease pathophysiology. The specific PhD-project is to be conducted in the Jensen group at Aarhus University and will focus on modeling alpha-synuclein aggregate biology in human iPSC derived neurons.
Interested candidates with a proven expertise in working with human iPSC derived neurons or other brain cells, curiosity for big questions and an interest in joining the diverse international research community at DANDRITE are encouraged to contact group leader Poul Henning Jensen by email. Due to vacation, responses can first be expected ultimo September.
Together with The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) and the SciLifeLab & Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), Umeå University is looking for two excellent young researchers to become Group Leaders. Fellowships are targeted towards applicants to start their first independent group within a few years of their PhD. We offer generous funding for up to 9 years, conditional upon favourable review after four years. Data driven epidemiology and biology of infection covers research that will transform our understanding of pathogens, their interactions with hosts and the environment, and how they are transmitted through populations. Research will have a strong focus on computational analysis or predictive modeling of pathogen biology or host-microbe systems for which multidimensional, genome scale experimental data are now available, or it may use population scale genetic, clinical, or public health data from pathogen surveillance efforts and biobanks.
HCEMM is a rapidly growing Program for Translational Medicine in Hungary. They are now looking for a Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) at the HCEMM headquarters, who will coordinate the interaction between the HCEMM Administration and the Research Groups and participate in the general management tasks of the HCEMM program. The CSO is expected to closely interact with EMBL on all aspects of the HCEMM development. The CSO is also entitled to establish and run a Core Research Group at the HCEMM headquarters, with a research topic related to healthy ageing.
In January 2022, the new HCEMM headquarters, located at the Science Park in Szeged were officially inaugurated. The Incubator House will host the HCEMM Kft. Administration, six Core Research Groups and one additional Advanced Core Facilitiy. We offer several positions for Core Group Leaders who will set up and operate their research groups at the new Incubator House in Szeged, Hungary. Applications are sought for the establishment of Groups especially in the fields of Infectious Diseases and Immuno- Inflammatory Diseases. We are also looking for a Clinician (part time or full time) to participate in Biobanking efforts. Networking with the existing Groups will be an important aspect of the work of all additional Groups, please visit https://www.hcemm.eu/teams/ to learn more about them and their activities.
As a HCEMM Core Group Leader you will receive support in the form of your own competitive salary, considerable operational funds for five years to recruit a Senior (i.e. PostDoc) and Junior Group (i.e. student or technician) member and for the initial operational funding for your laboratory and the unique opportunity to design all aspects of your new work environment at the HCEMM headquarters. Adjunct status at the University of Szeged can be sought in order to have access to Graduate Schools and Graduate Programs.
If you recognise yourself in this description, you may apply for one of the below THREE RESEARCH GROUP LEADER CATEGORIES:
• SENIOR GROUP LEADER (outstanding Ph.D. or M.D and post- doctoral records, as well as above average research achievements in the last 10 years). A clear vision for product development needs to be demonstrated in your application.
•JUNIOR GROUP LEADER (generally 2-7 years international research experience after obtaining the Ph.D. or M.D. degree). A long-term view on the development of industrial interactions needs to be demonstrated in your application.
•TRANSLATIONAL GROUP LEADER (a medical degree (M.D. or equivalent) and experience in work with industrial partners)
Dr. Haiyan He’s lab in the Department of Biology at Georgetown University is seeking a highly motivated postdoc fellow interested in neuroscience research.
Successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on a NIH-funded study to investigate novel mechanisms underlying activity-dependent proteostasis in neurons. Postdoc fellow salary and benefit will be set commensurate with their experience and qualification according to NIH guidelines. They will also benefit from the thriving and collegial research environment, interdisciplinary collaborations, excellent career development workshops, and state-of-art core research facilities at Georgetown University as well as its Medical Center.
