  Investigating mechanisms of protein aggregate transmission in C. elegans
  Dr R Taylor
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The transfer of toxic, aggregated forms of proteins between cells drives the progression of neurodegenerative diseases. However, the mechanisms driving this propagation are not yet fully understood.
  Mapping neuromodulator networks in real-time in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans
  Dr Y L Chew
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Aims. Much of the efforts to identify neuronal connections and map the ‘connectome’ of the nervous system focuses on synaptic connections between neurons.
  Novel microbes and their biochemistry in C. elegans
  Prof S Mani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Mani Laboratory @The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, INC has an open position for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to be part of an expanding research program on novel aspects of the microbial biofilms and C.
  Sequencing the m6A (epi)transcriptome of C. elegans (AKAYU20DTP2)
  Dr A Akay, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regulation of gene expression is essential for the development and survival of organisms and RNA is at the centre of many gene regulatory processes.
  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  Regulation of mitotic and meiotic chromosome function by different cohesin complexes
  Research Group: Meiosis
  Dr E Martinez-Perez
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cohesin, the complex that provides sister chromatid cohesion (SCC) to ensure correct chromosome segregation during cell division, belongs to a family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) proteins conserved from bacteria to humans (1).
  Deciphering a novel anti-ageing epigenetic programme
  Dr G Poulin, Prof A Sharrocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over two decades of intense research in the field of epigenetics have produced compelling evidence that chromatin modifications are crucial for processes such as DNA repair, transcription, splicing, mitosis, meiosis, and in the preservation of the epigenetic memory of cells.
  Uncovering the role of RNA m6A modification in germ cell proliferation (AKAYU20DTP1)
  Dr A Akay, Prof T Dalmay
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Germline stem cells are essential for the survival of organisms by giving rise to the offspring. Gene expression changes within the germ cells can affect embryonic development and in some organisms such changes are transgenerationally inherited.
  The impact of protein ubiquitination on ageing and ageing-associated diseases
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Ageing is characterized by a general functional decline of cells, tissues and organs with increased risk of disease, such as neurodegenerative disorders.
  Ubiquitin-dependent signalling pathways in ageing
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is characterized by a general functional decline of cells with increased risk of disease. Maintenance of protein homeostasis is a long-term challenge not only for individual cells but also for the entire organism.
