You will support the research activities of the research team as required within guidelines provided, create transcripts of archival material in the Dorothy de la Hey collection and contribute to a blog that will comment on materials in both the Sharaf-un-Nisa and Dorothy de la Hey collections.

Contact Name: HR Team Contact Email: personnel@physics.ox.ac.uk

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in DNA Nanotechnology: Programmed Chemical Bond Formation/A Synthetic Ribosome

We propose to develop molecular machinery (artificial ribosomes) capable of translating a genetic code into completely synthetic, sequence-defined, polymers. This collaborative project will combine expertise in DNA nanotechnology/molecular machinery and polymer chemistry to realise a fundamental advance in molecular robotics. Genetically programmed synthesis will allow exploration of vast new regions of chemical space, opening up many exciting applications. Our aim is to enable directed evolution by molecular machinery working on reaction- and time-scales orders of magnitude smaller than currently possible, leading to the development of non-natural polymers that match and extend the functionalities of peptides and proteins. Nanomachines capable of programmed product synthesis in situ will realise the longstanding promise of nanotechnology to deliver ‘smart’ therapeutics. On a more fundamental level, this new technology will allow us to recreate complex biological behaviours such as gene regulation, bringing the creation of artificial living systems—the grand challenge of synthetic biology—a step closer.

This project is a collaboration with Professor Rachel O’Reilly, Department of Chemistry, Birmingham University.

The successful candidate will develop techniques for the design, construction, and characterisation of synthetic DNA nanomachines capable of programmed chemical synthesis.

Applicants should possess, or be very close to completion a PhD in a relevant research field.

Previous experience in molecular self-assembly and nanostructure fabrication, single-molecule biophysics, molecular engineering, molecular machinery, chemical synthesis, or other relevant research field will be an advantage.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate competence in: management of research activities; development of scientific techniques and experimental protocols; use of specialist scientific equipment; contribution of research ideas; testing hypotheses and analysis of data; collaboration on all aspects of research, including preparation of scientific reports, journal articles and presentation of papers and posters.

The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.

Please direct enquiries about the role to Professor Andrew Turberfield (a.turberfield@physics.ox.ac.uk).

You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 6 September 2019 can be considered.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for postdoctoral neuroscientists within the CompNeuro Group at WIN. The job is part of a Wellcome funded collaboration between Behrens, Walton and Akam groups in Oxford, and Barry, Burgess and Cacucci groups at UCL. This will involve recording and manipulating large populations of cells, in mice, with a focus on hippocampus, entorhinal cortex and ventral frontal cortex. Critical to the endeavour is to work with unusually rich tasks that are nevertheless precisely mathematically-defined so that we can characterise neuronal representations of world-models in a quantitative fashion.

We are developing such tasks in for mice in spatial, operant and virtual reality domains. The overall project aims to provide tests of several recent theoretical models in this space, and rich quantitative data to constrain new theory. We will ask how neuronal representations encode tasks in spatial and non-spatial situations, and how these representations are built (by mechanisms such as replay). The Oxford side of the project will focus predominantly on hippocampal and ventral frontal recordings (and manipulations) in spatial and operant tasks. The UCL side of the project will focus predominantly on hippocampal and entorhinal recordings (and manipulations) in spatial and virtual reality tasks.

The postholder is expected to hold, or be nearing completion of a PhD or DPhil in neuroscience or related discipline. It essential that the postholder have either expertise in cellular recording, including neurosurgical techniques or expertise in data analysis or theoretical tools in neuroscience, but it is desirable that they have the expertise in both. They must also have a track record in programming, including MATLAB, python and/or C++ as well as the ability to manage their own academic research and associated activities.

The role is funded as part of a collaboration with the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre at UCL (Neil Burgess, Caswell Barry, Francesca Caccucci).

The post is full-time for a fixed-term of 3 years in the first instance.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 11 September 2019 will be considered.

Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter.

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the group of Professor Quentin Sattentau’s group at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology.

A major interest of the laboratory is to develop a vaccine against the human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) based on generation of neutralising antibodies by immunisation. Since the target of neutralising antibodies is the viral envelope glycoprotein trimer, we work specifically on modifying envelope glycoprotein presentation and stability to optimise neutralising antibody induction.

The postholder will be part of a small group working with, and post-translationally modifying, soluble forms of the envelope glycoprotein to achieve this aim. Basic skills in working with proteins including purification, chemical modification and characterisation are essential. Some experience in aspects of glycobiology and/or immunological assays such as ELISA would be desirable.

This is a fixed-term appointment available for 1 year. Informal inquiries can be sent to Professor Quentin Sattentau via email quentin.sattentau@path.ox.ac.uk.
