Posted by Euclockmanagement on Friday, July 20 @ 14:42:55 CEST (13 reads)

The University of Oxford
Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics

Post-Doctoral Circadian Biologist/Sleep Neurobiologist

Grade 7: Salary £25,889- £31,840

Applications are invited for a full-time post-doctoral research scientist to join the Circadian and Visual Neuroscience Group at the University of Oxford.

We seek a circadian biologist/sleep neurobiologist to conduct a research project as part of a team working on an ongoing program of research studying the effect/s of light on non-visual receptors in the eye and brain and the physiological and behavioural consequences thereafter (Nature 424, 76-81; Curr Biol 13, 1290-1298; Eur J Neurosci 18, 3007-3017; Biologist 51, 135-140; Curr Biol 15, 1099-1107; Neuron 49(3); 331-339; Chronobiol Int 23(1-2); 167-179).

The ideal candidate will be dependable and highly enthusiastic with a strong background in circadian biology including experience of sleep and/or circadian assays and ISH/ICC and laser capture microdissection. A working knowledge of molecular biology including PCR, qPCR and RNA extraction would be preferable. A PhD or equivalent in a related area with 2-3 years post-doctoral experience is necessary.

This post offers an experienced and dedicated researcher the opportunity of joining a multidisciplinary team working in a state of the art research centre within a world renowned university. The post, starting September 2007, is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is offered for 16 months in the first instance.

Vacancies Vacancies: Postdoctoral Research Associate
Posted by Euclockmanagement on Thursday, July 19 @ 17:41:56 CEST (13 reads)


4- Year post: Molecular mechanisms of circadian timing in mammals
Salary up to £30,012 depending on experience

Funded by the BBSRC, we seek a dynamic individual to develop transgenic mice in which clock proteins are tagged with fluorescent proteins to permit the study of dynamic interactions of circadian clock elements in key brain and other structures involved in circadian timing. Our goal is to use FRET analysis to characterise the movement and interactions of clock proteins in real time, and examine the effect of clock mutations on mobility of these components. As a key starting position, we will make several lines of transgenic mice using in-frame knock-in to produce clock proteins fused to fluorescent markers. The successful applicant will be required to make the necessary targeting vectors, and will be supported by an Experimental Officer in the transgenic unit who will undertake ES cell selection and produce transgenic animals. The position is based at the University of Manchester, but will involve significant collaboration with Dr Michael Hastings’ laboratory at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge. You should have good general molecular biological skills, and ideally a background in use of transgenic models as applied to neuroscience or cell biology. You should be willing to learn behavioural techniques, and to make a significant input to the scientific direction of the project.

The circadian laboratories of Professors Loudon and Piggins are part of a large community of circadian biologists at Manchester, with well-equipped facilities for cell imaging, behavioural recording and cell biology. The other Manchester-based grant holder is Professor Ray Boot-Handford, who is also the Director of the Transgenic Facility.

Informal enquiries are encouraged and can be made to Andrew Loudon. Tel: +44 (0)161 275 3888; Fax +44 (0)161 275 3938; E-mail: [email protected]

Post is tenable from 1st September 2007 for 4 years

Application forms and further particulars can be obtained at http://www.manchester.ac.uk/aboutus/jobs/research/vacancy/index.htm?ref=120129 or from

Neuropharmacology of Melatonin Receptors and Circadian Rhythms

A postdoctoral research position supported by NIH funding is available immediately for a Ph.D.
or MD/Ph.D. to work on the role of MT1 and MT2 melatonin receptors in the modulation of
circadian rhythms alterations and dopaminergic sensitization induced by drugs of abuse. Projects
include the use of mouse models with genetic deletion of the MT1 and/or MT2 melatonin
receptors and/or clock genes, and the identification of novel drugs for the treatment of insomnia,
depression, and circadian sleep disorders.

Candidates must have a strong research background and practical experience with mammalian
clock gene expression, circadian rhythms of behavior, and brain surgical procedures. Knowledge
of electrophysiological techniques and the molecular neuropharmacology of G-protein coupled
receptors is also desired. Candidates should be willing to use integrated circadian in vitro and in
vivo approaches to assess the role of drugs of abuse on clock gene expression and circadian
behaviors. This position represents a unique opportunity for career development, for learning the
neuropharmacology of circadian rhythms and drug discovery, and for interactions with
investigators within the multidisciplinary scientific community at Northwestern University.

Applications should include a cover letter summarizing career experiences and specific
qualifications in the field of circadian rhythm neurobiology, a CV, and full contact information
for at least 3 references.
Submit applications directly Dr. Margarita L. Dubocovich [[email protected]; (312) 503-8005].
Deadline for receipt of completed applications is August 15, 2007. AA/EOE. We encourage applications from women and members of
underrepresented groups.

Post doctoral and Ph.D. student positions in Chronobiology
Molecular clock mechanisms:
circadian rhythms in C. elegans and N. crassa

The Biological Centre of the University of Groningen has vacancies in the de-
partment of Chronoiology. The aim of research is to discover molecular
mechanisms of the circadian (daily) clock in the powerful genetic model sys-
tems, C. elegans and N. crassa. The circadian clock regulates gene expres-
sion, metabolism, and behaviour and the position therefore offers a broad
training experience, with projects that encompass levels from genome to

Applicants should enjoy working in a team, in a communicative, collegial en-
vironment, but should also be capable of independent work. The lab is em-
bedded in the Department of Chronobiology, a group of international re-
searchers and students with expertise from modeling to behaviour to mo-
lecular clock genetics. We are situated in the large and multi-disciplinary Bio-
logical Centre of the University, 6 km outside of the city centre. The position
is funded by a VICI grant from the NWO, with salary and benefits commensu-
rate with the national scale. Our students are participants in the graduate
school "Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences" (BCN), offering a full array
of training opportunities, from course work to language training.

Applicants who have experience with N. crassa, C. elegans, S. cerevisisae or
molecular genetics will be given priority, as will those with a strong record
and recommendations. You should be fluent in the English language. Your
application should consist of a letter of introduction, explaining your motiva-
tion, and a c.v. including names and contact information for three referees.

At the Chronobiology and Oncology Research Laboratory (Dorn VA Medical Center) William Hrushesky and his team are trying to determine how the circadian clock organizes cancer cell proliferation and susceptibility.
They are also determined to figure out how the menstrual and estrous cycles modulate the metastatic potential of breast cancer, depending upon the cycle phase of resection.

They offer one or two postdoctoral associates vanacies. If you are interesting in biological time structure wishes to become embroiled in the chronobiology of the host-cancer interaction, they would very much appreciate your application!
