Post doc position in Signal Transduction in Host-Microbial Interactions and Inflammation - Sweden

Post doc position in Signal Transduction in Host-Microbial Interactions and Inflammation
Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS)
Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) at Umeå University
Background: Innate immune detections of and responsiveness to microbes is mediated by sets of receptors known as pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). PRRs are broadly categorized into three classes: Toll-like receptors (TLRs), NOD-like receptors (NLRs) and RIG-I-like receptors (RLRs). Activation of PRRs results in the production of a large set of proinflammatory cytokines and type I interferons (IFNs) which act concertedly to coordinate host defenses against foreign invasion. Although principally meant to protect the host, excessive or deregulated induction of such innate immune responses, can either lead to self injury (e.g during sepsis or autoimmune diseases). Therefore in orders to maintain an optimal balance between anti-microbial host defenses and guarding against causing self injury, PRR signaling pathways must be regulated tightly. We are interested in understanding the mechanisms that govern the regulation of PRRs signaling pathways and how the breakdown of such regulation may lead to inflammation or impair anti-microbial host defenses. Relevant publications: Dietrich N, et al, Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2010 May 1;107(19):8748-53; Dietrich et al. PLoS One. 2010 Apr 20;5(4).

Methods: These studies will involve using various in vivo mouse models of inflammation and infection as well in vitro studies using a variety of techniques including flow cytometry, microscopy, lentiviral transduction, mass spectrometry, standard cell culture, protein biochemistry, and cell/molecular biology techniques.

Location: Our new lab in Sweden belongs to the MIMS (The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) within the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine). MIMS constitutes the Swedish node within the Nordic partnership for Molecular Medicine that is formed together with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the Finland and Norway nodes. MIMS is established within the Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) at Umeå University. The groups of the MIMS work in modern laboratories with well-equipped common facilities and platforms in a creative, inspiring and highly interactive environment.

Qualifications: We are looking for enthusiastic candidates who are interested in innate immunity and who have received or are about to receive a Ph.D preferably in immunology, microbiology, virology, cell/molecular biology. The position is available for the initial 2 years with a possibility of extension. The successful candidate will be expected to design and execute his or her project independently but also work in close collaboration with the other members of the team.

Applicants should submit their CV along with the names and contact details of three referees, preferably via email to Dr. Nelson O. Gekara ( For more information visit our webpage

Multiple research positions in statistical genetics (Post-doctoral and PhD studentship)

Multiple research positions in statistical genetics (Post-doctoral and PhD studentship)

Psychiatric Genetics and Queensland Statistical Genetics Laboratories of the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR), Brisbane, Australia
Lab heads: Naomi Wray and Peter Visscher
Project: Estimation and prediction analysis of complex traits using genome-wide marker data

Advances in technology which allow typing of millions of DNA markers simultaneously have revolutionized gene mapping in human genetics, making it one of the most exciting and fast moving fields in science. Genetic studies such as these generate large volumes of data and require advanced statistical and computational methods to link disease and trait phenotypes from often thousands of individuals to the high density genetic data. We have pioneered the use of multi-marker statistical genetic methods in human genetics to elucidate the genetic architecture of complex traits and have developed a framework for predicting an individual’s risk to disease from genome-wide marker data. We have secured funding from for post-doctoral positions to enable us to build upon this foundation and develop and implement better methods to predict phenotypes from SNP data. This research could ultimately lead to diagnostic and prognostic genetic testing for complex genetic diseases. The successful applicants will be involved in the development and testing of methodologies for innovative whole-genome analyses of existing data, development and testing of new prediction methods, evolutionary modelling of the distribution of causal variants and new analyses of meta-analysis summary data.

The research will be directed by Dr. Naomi Wray and Professor Peter Visscher whose laboratories already contain 8 post-doctoral researchers. QIMR is one of the largest medical research institutes in the southern hemisphere, with programs in areas such as cellular and molecular sciences, epidemiology and population health, cancer biology, biotechnology, infectious diseases and vaccine development.

Pfizer Fellowships in Epilepsy 2011 ? USA

2011 Pfizer Fellowships in Epilepsy – USA

About University:
Pfizer is proud to present our Medical & Academic Partnerships program, which improves patient care and increases the safe and effective use of our medicines. Since the inception of the Medical & Academic Partnerships program in 1984, Pfizer has funded more than 1000 proposals. This program is a reflection of Pfizer’s commitment to advancing research, innovation, and medical education in Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Osteopathic Medicine, Pharmacy and Public Health.

Clinical Fellowship:
Epilepsy is not a single disorder, but rather a syndrome with vastly divergent symptoms, all involving episodic abnormal electrical activity in the brain. The CDC estimates that approximately 2 million people in the United States have epilepsy, and it is estimated that nearly 140,000 new cases will be diagnosed in the United States. The incidence is highest in individuals younger than age 2 and older than age 65, and higher among racial minorities than whites. Although epilepsy is a relatively common chronic condition, in the majority of cases, its cause remains a mystery. Epilepsy is usually controlled with medication; however, more than 30% of people with epilepsy do not have seizure control even with the best available therapies. From diagnosis to managing the physiologic and social effects of living with epilepsy, clinical research and supportive care are needed for patients and their families

Scholarship Description: Applications are welcome from institutions and programs that focus on acquiring advanced knowledge and skills in the comprehensive management of patients with epilepsy and its related disorders.
