PhD project in “Systems biology approach for elucidating bacterial revival after antibiotic treatment”

Project description

Resistance of bacterial pathogens to antibiotics is a serious threat to global health, with a predicted death toll of at least 2.4 billion people worldwide in the next 30 years, and costs up to $US3.5 billion per year. New solutions to fight antimicrobial resistance are imperative, both to rescue old antibiotics and also to undermine resistance development to newly discovered ones. Antibiotic tolerance – a transient physiological state where bacteria can tolerate antibiotics without being resistant – is increasingly associated with the raise of resistance. Tolerant bacteria survive antibiotic treatment, and once the antibiotic is removed they are able to resume growth, thus leading to relapsing infections. The aim of this project is to elucidate molecular mechanisms of bacterial revival of the enteric pathogen Salmonella Typhimurium after antibiotic treatment using systems biology approaches. This project is an excellent opportunity for students who want to develop their computational skills in tight combinabion with experiments in bacterial genetics and physiology. We are a dynamic, highly collaborative, multidisciplinary team with access to cutting-edge robotic platforms, thus our lab offers the perfect environment for such projects. We welcome applications from highly motivated students eager to explore exciting and innovative ideas. Your background can be from broad disciplines ranging from Biology to Computer Science. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to find out more. In fact, you are encouraged to do so!

PhD Position: Modeling microbial interactions in marine ecosystems

We are offering a PhD position (E13 TV-L HU, 65%) at the Institute for Theoretical Biology (ITB) of the Humboldt-University of Berlin.

The project seeks to understand (the evolution of) metabolic interactions between phototrophic and heterotrophic microorganisms and the "self-organization" of ecosystems. The tasks for the PhD project are primarily computational and include reconstruction and constraint-based analysis of genome-scale metabolic models of microbial organisms, in particular cyanobacteria.

The project is inspired by recent works that provide novel insights into phototroph-heterotroph interactions and division of labour in marine ecosystems. In collaboration with experimental partners, our aim is to develop quantitative computational models that explain the trade-offs and metabolic prerequisites of such interactions. In particular, our hypothesis is that the concept of "cellular resource allocation" offers a unique and novel angle to understand the constraints and energetic trade-offs that govern the emergence of dependencies between photo- and heterotrophic microorganisms. The planned work directly builds upon our recent works to describe microbial/cyanobacterial resource allocation and growth:

- Sharma S and Steuer R (2019) Modeling microbial communities using biochemical resource allocation analysis. J. R. Soc. Interface 16: 20190474.
- Zavřel T et al. (2019) Quantitative insights into the cyanobacterial cell economy. eLife 2019;8:e42508
- Reimers AM et al. (2017) Cellular trade-offs and optimal resource allocation during cyanobacterial diurnal growth. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. pii: 201617508.

In addition to the usual requirements (a passion for the topic, a university degree (typically M.Sc. in an appropriate field), very good programming skills in python or matlab, ...), the ideal candidate would have some experience with/strong interest in computational models of metabolism, constraint-based analysis of metabolism, biochemistry, comparative genomics and/or related concepts.  

The formal call and further instructions are available on the webpage of the HU (in german only, Reference: DR/012/21, the german text takes precedence):  https://www.personalabteilung.hu-berlin.de/de/stellenausschreibungen/wissenschaftliche-r-mitarbeiter-in-m-w-d-mit-65-v-h-d-regelm-arbeitszeit-e-13-tv-l-hu-drittmittelfinanzierung-befristet-bis-31-12-2023

The position will be embedded into the highly collaborative scientific environment here at the Institute for Theoretical Biology (ITB) in the center of Berlin, and offers further training opportunities, as well as the possibility to visit and work closely with our experimental partners.

Deadline for applications is March 2, 2021.

I am happy to also answer any questions or informal enquiries (Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!) and would also encourage any students who are interested to send me an informal email.

PhD position: Bioinformatics dissection of aberrant developmental progression during tumorigenesis using a single-cell multi-omics approach (INSERM, CNRS, AMU, Marseille)

We are proposing a PhD position to investigate, at the single cell level, the gene regulatory regions controlling brain development and tumorigenesis in Drosophila. For this purpose, we will use a single-cell multi-omics approach (RNA-seq and ATAC-seq).

Details of the project and host labs can be found here: https://centuri-livingsystems.org/phd2021-06

This PhD project is part of the PhD Programme of the Turing Centre for Living Systems (CENTURI). The deadline of application is: February 26, 2021 and the application procedure is explained here: https://centuri-livingsystems.org/recruitment/

Recent single-cell transcriptomics data have shown that brain cancers in children are driven by aberrantly redeployed developmental programs. However, it is still unclear how these developmental programs are coopted and regulated in the tumorigenic context. Brain development is understood in unmatched details in Drosophila where we have recently generated a model of brain tumors that recapitulates childhood tumors. New technologies now allow the simultaneous analysis of the transcriptome and regulome (regulatory regions) in single-cells. This project aims to generate and analyze single-cell data from neural progenitors isolated from the developing brain and tumors in Drosophila. The student will prepare tissues for high-throughput sequencing (HTS). He will then carry out a bioinformatics analysis to identify gene regulatory regions and infer gene regulatory networks involved during normal brain development and brain tumorigenesis. This project will shed light on how developmental programs can be coopted to promote tumorigenesis in children.

The PhD candidate should have a Master's degree in an area related to Bioinformatics, Biophysics, or Computer Science with a strong interest in data analysis. Previous experimental experience is not required but the student should be motivated to embark on a substantial amount of experimental work in order to generate the single-cell data to be analyzed.

Thank you for sharing this offer with motivated candidates.

• technical support of the virtual working group meetings

o oversee virtual meeting platform functionalities (usually Zoom)

o help with break out room coordination

o support with audio, video problems of participants

o help setting up and oversee potential virtual whiteboards, slack channels etc

• support in meeting preparation

• note taking & synthesizing while and after the meetings

• potential help with meeting moderation/facilitation

Requirements / expected profile:

• You are currently a MSc student in a related research discipline (e.g., archaeology, zoology, ecology, palaeontology, geography, geology) or you already hold a Master’s or equivalent degree in a related field of research

• You should be familiar with at least one the following topics: Ecology, biodiversity research

• Fluent English language skills are a prerequisite and skills in other languages are beneficial.

• Your place of work is the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) in Leipzig. Depending on the Corona-situation home office can be made.

You will be employed as student assistant via Leipzig University. The preferred starting data is 01 March 2021 or shortly thereafter.
