PhD fellowship available at UCL Institute of Ophtalmology (IOO)

Applications are invited for a three-year PhD fellowship at UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IOO) under the supervision of Dr Patric Turowski and Prof Pete Coffey. The ideal start date is after 1st September 2017. This project is aimed at characterising the mitochondrial dynamics in retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). The RPE constitutes a protective cell layer in the eye located at the back of the retina. RPE mitochondria are crucial for dealing with the chronic accumulation of retinal waste. We have identified a novel family of proteins, ARMCX, which appear key to mitochondrial health and dynamics and propose to study how they regulate RPE function. The successful candidate will be using cutting edge technology, in particular cell and mitochondrial biology, molecular genetic, biochemistry, live cell microscopy and electron microscopy.

More information and how to apply

Informal inquiries:
Please email Dr Patric Turowski for further information abou t the project at p.turowski@ucl.ac.uk.

BBB Lab @ University of Artois (Lens, France) is recruiting a phD student in the framework of a European Project call In3

phD position available in the framework of the In3 project = An integrated interdisciplinary approach to animal-free nanomaterial and chemical safety assessment

The in3 project (grant no. 721975) is a Marie Curie Innovative Training Network that aims to drive the synergistic development and utilisation of in vitro and in silico tools for human chemical and nanomaterial (NM) safety assessment. The project will focus on differentiation of human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSC) to toxicologically relevant target tissues including; brain, lung, liver and kidney. The tissues, from the same genetic backgrounds, will be exposed to several compounds and the data generated will be used to develop safety assessment approaches by integrating cheminformatics, mechanistic toxicology and biokinetics into computational models. The project will hire 15 PhD students to carry out these activities in a coordinated and highly collaborative fashion. The scientists trained within in3 will acquire a unique multidisciplinary skill set giving them a competitive employment advantage in safety assessment sciences, either in industry, governmental bodies or academia.

The project will run from January 2017 to the end of 2021. Recruitment is open now and will remain open until all positions are filled. Each of the 15 phD positions advertised is a 3 year PhD position. Applicants must be Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs), meaning that they are within the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers and have not yet been awarded a doctoral degree (PhD). We expect the first ESRs to commence employment in March 2017. We aim to have all positions filled by July 2017.

15 phD positions are available including one at the BBB Lab (University of Artois, Lens, France)

ESR4: Differentiation of brain like endothelial cells from iPSC and application to BBB toxicity testing and prediction of CNS distribution
Host organisation: University of Artois, Lens, France
