PhD in neuronal circuit development and evolution, CIG, UNIL (CH)

>>>Link to the job add<<<

Introduction

Unil is a leading international teaching and research institution, with over 5’000 employees and 15’000 students split between its Dorigny campus, CHUV and Epalinges. As an employer, UNIL encourages excellence, individual recognition and responsibility.

Presentation

Prof. Richard Benton (www.unil.ch/cig/benton) at the Center for Integrative Genomics at UNIL is seeking a PhD student with a strong background and interest in neurobiology, developmental genetics and molecular biology.

Job information

Expected start date in position : 01.04.2021 / to be agreed

Contract length : 1 year, renewable, max 4 years

Activity rate : 100%

Workplace : University of Lausanne, Dorigny

Your responsibilities

How do new neuronal circuits evolve?

We approach this question in the olfactory system of Drosophila. Olfactory pathways are one of the most dynamically evolving parts of the nervous system: animals frequently acquire (and discard) olfactory receptors, circuits and odour-evoked behaviours with the ever-changing landscape of stimuli in their environment. The evolutionary flexibility of olfactory systems is reflected in their modular organisation: in insects (as in vertebrates), most individual olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) express just one olfactory receptor gene, and the axons of OSNs expressing the same receptor converge on discrete regions of neuropil (glomeruli) within the primary olfactory centre, where they synapse with second-order neurons. The numbers of olfactory receptors vary widely across species, with concordant diversity in the number and organisation of OSNs and glomeruli in the brain.

Using developmental genetics, single-cell sequencing and circuit tracing methods in the Drosophila peripheral olfactory system, our lab is studying:

(i) the mechanisms and evolution of olfactory receptors’ singular expression properties,

(ii) how novel populations of OSNs arise through changes in patterns of neurogenesis and developmental programmed cell death, and

(iii) how OSN populations are segregated to distinct glomeruli to form unique sensory channels in the brain, and how these guidance mechanisms are modified to create new glomeruli. The mechanisms and molecules we characterise are likely to be relevant for understanding circuit formation and evolution in other brain regions and species.

The specific PhD project will be developed together with the successful candidate in one of these topics, depending upon their interests and expertise.

PhD student position available in macro-nutrition and signaling regulated RNA metabolism, CIG, UNIL (CH)


>>>Link to the job add<<<

Introduction

UNIL is a leading international teaching and research institution, with over 5,000 employees and 15,500 students split between its Dorigny campus, CHUV and Epalinges. As an employer, UNIL encourages excellence, individual recognition and responsibility.

Presentation

Dr. Isabel Lopez-Mejia (https://www.unil.ch/cig/home/menuinst/research/dr-isabel-lopez-mejia.html) at the Center for Integrative Genomics at UNIL is seeking a PhD student with a strong background and interest in RNA processing, metabolism, physiology and molecular biology.

Job information

Expected start date in position : 01.03.2021 or to be agreed

Contract length : 1 year, renewable maximum 4 years

Activity rate : 100%

Workplace : University of Lausanne, Dorigny

Your responsibilities

The main research focus of our laboratory is to understand the participation of RNA processing in the regulation of energy metabolism in the context of obesity and diabetes.

The successful candidate will work on a project aiming to identify how external stimuli (nutrition, hormones, …) modulate RNA metabolism, in adipose tissue depots, to control whole body energy balance.

We study the molecular pathways connecting energy sensing and cell metabolism with the post-transcriptional control of gene expression. More specifically, we investigate the role of RNA binding proteins in white and brown adipose tissue function, and in the onset of insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome.

Several aspects of RNA processing will be studied with a special focus on how signal-induced alternative splicing is altered in conditions of obesity and insulin resistance.

We use molecular and cellular biology approaches, as well as transcriptomic and proteomic tools to understand how macronutrition and external stimuli control RNA binding proteins in cellular models of adipocytes and mouse models of diet-induced obesity. For that purpose, we closely collaborate with the UNIL genomic technologies, protein analysis facilities and bioinformatics competence center located on site.

Although most of your time will be dedicated to your research project, you will also be involved in undergraduate teaching (e.g., practical class preparation, literature reading classes).

Your qualifications

  • A master’s degree in molecular biology, cell biology, physiology or a related topic
  • Strong interests/skills in molecular biology, RNA processing, physiology, metabolism, bioinformatics
  • Excellent scientific writing, communication and interpersonal skills, self- motivation and independence
  • Experience in RNA splicing, cell metabolism and mouse physiology is a plus.

What the position offers you

You will be co-supervised by Dr. Isabel Lopez-Mejia and Prof. Lluis Fajas, in a a multicultural, diverse and dynamic academic environment. The working language is English.

The Center for Integrative Genomics encompasses 15 research labs investigating diverse fields related to functional genomics and offers state-of-the-art experimental facilities. Beyond the training in the host laboratory, numerous possibilities exist at UNIL for further professional education (e.g., in bioinformatics, imaging, soft-skills, career development).

Introduction

UNIL is a leading international teaching and research institution, with over 5,000 employees and 15,500 students split between its Dorigny campus, CHUV and Epalinges. As an employer, UNIL encourages excellence, individual recognition and responsibility.

Presentation

The Center for Integrative Genomics of the University of Lausanne invites applications for the position of PhD student in plant responses to the environment – photobiology.

Plant growth and development are strongly influenced by light. This resource is essential for photoautotrophic plants but its availability is strongly influenced by the surrounding vegetation. In response to neighbor proximity or shade cues plants initiate low light responses such as shade-avoidance and phototropism. The Fankhauser lab (https://www.unil.ch/cig/en/home/menuinst/research/prof-fankhauser.html) studies the molecular and physiological mechanisms enabling plants to adapt to such unfavorable light conditions.

Job information

Expected start date in position: 01.03.2021 or to be agreed

Contract length : 1 year, renewable 2 x 2 years, max. 5 years

Activity rate: 85% (minimum of 50% of the activity rate for research thesis, maximum of 50% of the activity for the institute)

Workplace: University of Lausanne, Dorigny, Center for Integrative Genomics

Your responsibilities

The successful candidate will work within the framework of the project entitled “Phototropism in green seedlings: studying its regulation in open versus shaded environments”. The candidate will use a combination of molecular genetics, plant photobiology, cell biology and biochemical approaches and work as part of a team to address the overall research question.

The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to gain teaching and mentoring experience through contributions to undergraduate and graduate teaching programs and the supervision of student projects. The University of Lausanne offers a world-class international research environment with state-of-the-art facilities

Your qualifications

Dynamic, enthusiastic and dedicated scientist with a Master degree in biology or a related discipline. Critical thinker with good reasoning and logic skills. Team player eager to participate in scientific discussions. A background in plant biology, protein biochemistry, computational skills (e.g. statistical computing using R) are strong assets.

What the position offers you

We offer a nice working place in a multicultural, diversified and dynamic academic environment, opportunities for professional training.

Contact for further information

For further information please contact Prof. Christian Fankhauser (Christian.Fankhauser@unil.ch)

Your application

Deadline: 31.01.2021

Please submit your full application as a single PDF document comprising:

– a cover letter detailing your research interests and experience, and clearly explaining why you are interested in this particular position

– a CV
