More information about the PI and research group is available at the lab website: jaylab.umd.edu.
The CMMC invites applications for the research group “Protein quality control and stress response” of Dr. Debora B. Trentini Schmidt for a PhD Student (65%).
Protein folding represents an intricate process requiring proteins to navigate a complex energy landscape, putting them at risk for adopting non-native structures. Misfolded proteins are not only dysfunctional, but they can also coalesce into potentially toxic aggregates that are considered a hallmark of many neurodegenerative diseases. Therefore, cells are equipped with a complex and adaptive network of factors ensuring protein synthesis, folding, conformational maintenance, and degradation. The central interest of CMMC -Trentini-Lab is to understand how protein quality control pathways distinguish functional proteins from aberrant species, and how they make the decision between repair and degradation. The research group is also interested in understanding how these pathways are regulated upon proteotoxic stress and certain disease situations. The researchers use a combination of genetic, biochemical, chemical-biology, and mass spectrometry-based approaches to mechanistically characterize protein quality control pathways in human cells, as well as to evaluate cellular consequences upon their failure.

Assegno di Ricerca - Identificazione e caratterizzazione di composti biofunzionali ottenuti da matrici di scarto attraverso processi green, dall’industria olearia ed agrumicola
E ’indetta una procedura selettiva pubblica per l’attribuzione di un assegno di ricerca (Tipologia B), area CUN: 05, settore scientifico-disciplinare: BIO/13. Le attività di ricerca prevedono la caratterizzazione funzionale di composti estratti e frazionati da materiale ottenuto dalla lavorazione di agrumi e olio. Al fine di verificarne il potenziale utilizzo come adiuvanti nel trattamento di patologie caratterizzate da componente infiammatoria incluso le patologie neoplastiche, gli estratti saranno testati su modelli in vitro di epatocarcinoma e su modelli di cellule endoteliali per verificare la loro capacità di modulare il processo angiogenico. La valutazione degli effetti biologici indotti su tali modelli cellulari sarà effettuata mediante saggi di proliferazione cellulare, apoptosi, analisi delle modifiche strutturali (modifiche del citoscheletro e dei sistemi giunzionali) e analisi della modulazione di marcatori di differenziamento e di specifici pathway di risposta agli stress ossidati o di risposta infiammatoria.

Multiple postdoctoral fellow and technical staff positions - Witwer Lab at Johns Hopkins University
Multiple postdoctoral fellow and technical staff positions available immediately: Witwer Lab at Johns Hopkins University
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are taking the world by storm and are exploited as biomarkers and therapeutics. There’s still a lot of basic biology to work out, too. Witwer Lab studies EVs in infectious and central nervous system diseases and explores the potential of EVs by using cutting-edge techniques for EV separation and characterization. Examples of project areas include:
- Using and developing novel technologies for single EV phenotyping
- Applying EV release and uptake assays to drug discovery and development
- Studying EVs and enveloped viruses (HIV, SARS-CoV-2)
- Profiling and functional studies of EVs in neurodegenerative diseases: human samples, iPSC models
Send a CV and cover letter to Kenneth Witwer, firstname.lastname@example.org
(Because of COVID-19 issues, candidates already in the US may have preference.)

PhD Fellowship available - University of Copenhagen
Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences offers a 3 year PhD fellowship in micro-RNAs and extracellular vesicles as novel diagnostic and prognostic markers for the equine bloodworm (Strongylus vulgaris) commencing 1 January 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Group and research
The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences is subdivided into seven sections and the PhD fellow will be included in the Section for Medicine and Surgery based at Taastrup Campus. The Section’s priorities are clinically applied research in large animal diseases and welfare (equine, bovine and small ruminants) as well as clinical and didactic teaching.
The PhD fellow will be part of a unique, international network of dedicated researchers within equine acute gastroenterology, parasitology and clinical pathology. We are based at four different Universities (Copenhagen, Aarhus, Kentucky and Uppsala). This study rely on laboratory techniques already established (for assessment of miRNA in other species) in our group in Copenhagen and Aarhus. Relevant samples for the study are available from horses naturally infected with S. vulgaris at University of Kentucky as well as from horses infected with S. vulgaris and suffering from thromboembolic colic admitted to the two Veterinary University hospitals in Denmark and Sweden.

Project RENOIR - 13 PhD positions available
RENOIR is a European Training Network that aims to develop and implement a PhD programme in the field of muscle regeneration and aging. An integrated structural training programme for 13 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to create a new generation of researchers with an interdisciplinary profile and view, to fill the gap created by an increasing need for highly-trained, interdisciplinary scientists to support this key European growth sector.
Molecular determinant of the identity of satellite cells
We investigate how the different stem and progenitor cells in the muscle acquire and maintain their fate using genetic lineage tracing strategies in transgenic mice and loss/gain of function models
Environmental control of muscle homeostasis, regeneration and aging
We focus on how the inflammatory, myogenic and vascular components integrate to coordinate muscle regeneration and how fibrosis develops in pathological conditions
Biomaterials and biological drugs-assisted regeneration
We engineer novel biomaterials and devices to reconstruct the extra-cellular matrix and the muscle niche in vitro that can recapitulate the role of the biochemical signals in muscle regeneration
