  • Postdoctoral Positions

    NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF CHILD HEALTH AND HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

    Neurogenetic Analysis of Behavior in Zebrafish

    Harold Burgess, Ph.D., [email protected]

    The laboratory uses molecular, genetic, and transgenic approaches to analyze neural circuits controlling startle behavior and navigation in zebrafish

    larvae. Highly motivated candidates with a strong background in molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Additional information is available at

    http://ubn.nichd.nih.gov/

    Microbial Pathogenesis - Analysis of Legionella pneumophila Virulence

    Matthias Machner, Ph.D., [email protected]

    A postdoctoral position in bacterial pathogenesis is immediately available in the Cell Biology and Metabolism Program, in the Unit of Microbial

    Pathogenesis, to study virulence mechanisms of the respiratory pathogen Legionella pneumophila. Our research focus is to understand how L.

    pneumophila can survive and replicate within host cells. Potential projects are (i) characterization of bacterial effector proteins translocated by L.

    pneumophila into the host cell cytosol during infection; (ii) identification of potential host cell targets for these effectors; and (iii) evaluation of the

    role of these host-pathogen interactions for L. pneumophila virulence.

    Mechanisms of Cellular Signaling

    Mihaela Serpe, Ph.D., [email protected]

    A postdoctoral position is available to study extracellular regulation of TGF-β signaling during nervous system development and homeostasis. We

    use the Drosophila model system and a variety of biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics approaches to understand how TGF-β signaling is

    modulated in time and space. The BMP-binding protein Crossveinless-2 (Cv-2) binds to the cell surface and acts locally to either promote or inhibit

    signaling (Dev. Cell 2008, 14:940). We are interested in the role of Cv-2 in nervous system development and functioning. http://ucc.nichd.nih.gov/

    Applicants must have less than five years of postdoctoral experience.

  • The STFC is seeking a Director for the

    Isaac Newton Group of telescopes

    (ING), based on the island of La Palma,

    Canary Islands, Spain. The ING

    consists of the 4.2-m William Herschel

    Telescope (WHT), the 2.5-m Isaac

    Newton Telescope (INT), and the 1.0-m

    Jacobus Kapteyn Telescope (JKT).

    The ING is operated on behalf of the

    UK Science and Technology Facilities

    Council (STFC), the Nederlanse

    Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk

    Onderzoek (NWO), and the Instituto de

    Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC). The STFC,

    the NWO, and the IAC have entered

    into collaborative agreements for the

    operation of and the sharing of

    observing time on the ING telescopes.

    Oversight of the ING is provided by the

    ING Board.

    The funding agencies have recently

    confirmed their strong support for the

    continued operation of the ING,

    emphasising the vital role that the WHT

    plays in provision of support for

    European astronomers in the Northern

    hemisphere.

    It is expected that the ING will take a

    lead in discussions with other

    telescope sites in the Canaries and

    across Europe, via new funding routes

    seeking to enhance the effectiveness of

    the medium- size telescopes into the

    era of the Extremely Large Telescopes.

    In that regard and together with the

    Board and the ING user community, the

    new Director will lead the development

    of scientific and strategic cases for the

    longer term, as the ING operates within

    the context of future large telescope

    projects. They will also be responsible

    for the successful introduction of the

    next generation of instrumentation

    projects for the ING.

    On a day-to-day basis the Director will

    be responsible for planning and

    executing the approved programme

    within policy and resource guidelines

    set by the ING Board, to whom they

    will be required to report regularly.

    They will also be accountable formally,

    as an employee of STFC, to the Chief

    Executive of STFC, for the efficient and

    proper use of resources, consistent

    with the requirements of public

    accountability, employment legislation,

    policy and best practice, and Health &

    Safety compliance.

    It is highly desirable that the successful

    candidate speaks Spanish; if necessary,

    intensive language training will be

    provided prior to taking up the

    appointment. They should also hold a

    current clean driving license since the

    job requires regular travel between the

    operations site on the Roque de los

    Muchachos and the sea-level office.

    Since the job requires work at a height

    of 2400m, medical clearance will be

    required. Appointments will be subject

    to candidates obtaining a visa/work

    permit, if necessary.
