Neuronal signalling of nutrients from mouse and human intestine

Project description The stimulation of vagal afferent fibres by gut hormones released from enteroendocrine cells in response to nutrients, is an important mechanism in the control of food intake and gut function. Therapeutically, the activation of this pathway by delivery of nutrients into the distil intestine is key to the improvement in body weight seen following bariatric surgery in obese patients, and so replicating these events in the form of a pill is of great clinical interest. We believe that the manipulation of receptors and ion channels co-expressed by vagal afferents sensitive to gut hormones is one way of achieving this goal. To study this further, we have recently established an ex-vivo tissue preparation of the terminal ileum and ascending colon (the two major sites of nutrient signalling implicated in the success of bariatric surgery) demonstrating robust afferent responses to prototypic appetite regulating hormones (e.g. CCK and PYY), markers of vagal afferent subpopulations (e.g. neurotensin), and nutrients such as peptones. We believe this ex-vivo model offers a unique opportunity to study enhanced neuronal signalling in response to nutrient ingestion in the gut and can be readily translated by studies using isolated human tissue. The aim of this studentship will therefore be to develop this model by a) characterising the expression of receptors and channels expressed on different vagal afferent fibre populations innervating the terminal ileum and proximal colon, b) investigating the functional consequence of manipulating different receptors and channels on vagal afferent signalling in response to nutrients, and c) extending these observation into ex-vivo preparations of human gut.

PhD Studentship Geometry Beyond Cad at University of Southampton

A new opening PhD position in artificial intelligence is available at University of Southampton, UK. Applications should be sent before June 30, 2019.

How do we represent more complex shapes during engineering design and analysis? 3D printing, (additive manufacturing) and incorporation of image scan data (from manufacturing and in service) both result in shapes that are not easily captured by arcs and straight lines. How do we interact with geometry when dealing with this data as part of normal engineering workflows?

In this project ideas from photo editing tools and computer animation will be adapted to work with commercial CAD software to add new geometry layers that can represent both variations stemming from manufacture and those arising from wear in service. This will permit the full range of engineering analysis methods to be applied to real part shapes. Combined with the latest GPU hardware, Deep Learning, Data Mining and Artificial Intelligence methods to allow hint based automatic geometry creation, the project will provide insights into the next generation of engineering design software.

Read more at www.chalmers.se/en/departments/e2 Information about the research

Embodied Artificial Intelligence is a multidisciplinary area that requires the cooperation of different fields such as computer science, engineering, robotics and dynamical systems. This PhD thesis will develop a novel learning algorithm to allow high-level intelligence, such as problem-solving and reasoning to be applied to real-world physical systems, e.g. robots. Mainly, this work will be focused on investigating learning methods on the semantic aspects of intelligence to develop general purpose solutions for robotic applications.

The goal of this PhD thesis is to develop compact and flexible model representations to allow robots the transference of their past experiences to current situations. These compact models should be human-readable to provide adequate feedback to the person interacting with the intelligent agent, e.g. a robot. This feedback should provide information to users, in an efficient form, about possible hazardous situations and potential errors, by predicting ahead-of-time the actions performed by either a human or a robot to infer their potential consequences. Thus, the communication between the users and the robots should be meaningful and bi-directional.

The position is with the Mechatronics group at Chalmers, where a team of PhD students, post-docs and senior researchers is working on semantic-based methods and advanced decision-making algorithms in the area of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.

PhD Studentship Integrating with Renewable Energy Sources Low Pressure Steam Turbine Last Stage Blade Durability

Applications are invited for a PhD position in machinery to join University of Southampton. Applications are welcome before June 30, 2019.

The increased deployment of renewable energy sources requires integration with conventional power plant to back-fill the inevitable dips in supply. This has meant that the cyclic loading on turbine blade components in conventional power plant has sharply increased (due to two-shifting and load following, producing many additional stop-start cycles). A particular challenge for large steam turbine units is ensuring the integrity of the low pressure turbine last stage blades. Increased incidences of fatigue cracking in the root region of the turbine blades are seen due to these additional cyclic loads. The aim of this PhD is to improve the fatigue endurance of the martensitic stainless steel materials used in the turbine blade root in a fully predictable/tailored fashion. This will require consideration of the effects of practical heat treatment procedures applied during manufacture and assessing approaches for improving the fatigue endurance in specific locations in the blade root using predictable and effective surface treatments that do not materially affect the shape of the component. The development of validated fatigue lifing predictions that can be applied easily to in-service surface conditions and appropriate notch geometry measurements in critical stress locations is a key deliverable.

This PhD programme will offer you an excellent training opportunity and develop you as a skilled structural integrity specialist. The supervisory team at Southampton have a long standing reputation in the field of fatigue evaluations in a range of turbomachinery applications and you will join a well-established team, with a critical mass of researchers working in allied fields. https://www.southampton.ac.uk/engineering/about/staff/pasr1.page?

The access to highly specialised mechanical testing capabilities (e.g. full-field experimental mechanics capabilities, thermal imaging, digital image correlation https://www.southampton.ac.uk/engineering/research/facilities/360/tsrl_360.page) and top of the range X-ray CT facilities https://www.southampton.ac.uk/muvis/index.page together with high level optical and electron microscopy techniques makes Southampton an excellent environment for the proposed research.

If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Professor Philippa Reed, Engineering Materials Research Group, Email: pasr1@soton.ac.uk, Tel: +44 (0) 2380 593763.

PhD Scholarship in Molecular Evolution at Uppsala University

Applications are invited for a PhD position in computer science to join Uppsala University. The funding allows successful candidate to work for four years. Applications should be sent before May 13, 2019.

Project description: One of the major objectives in evolutionary genetics is to understand the molecular basis and mechanisms of phenotypic variation and differentiation between species. Two classical candidates underlying phenotypic change are protein coding sequences and functional sequences that regulate gene expression. Here, changes of the DNA sequence itself or epigenetic modifications can influence the phenotype. However, the relative importance of these two sequence classes and the role of epigenetic modifications is still unclear. Flycatchers provide a good model system to study this question. Collared flycatcher (Ficedula albicollis) and pied flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) have been a model of speciation research for decades, and a rich source of genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic data have become available. In particular, data on naturally occurring hybrids provides the opportunity to study the molecular basis and mechanisms of reproductive isolation in an ecologically relevant setting. Moreover, genomic data of the more distantly related Taiga flycatcher (Ficedula albicilla) permits studying molecular evolution also at larger time-scales.

Duties: The project will start by the identification and characterization of gene regulatory elements in the collared flycatcher genome. In addition, you will establish associations between regulatory elements and their target genes. For this purpose, you will use bioinformatic software and machine learning approaches to analyse a rich source of genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic data. This exploration will form the background for all subsequent analysis. You will then perform comparative analysis between flycatcher populations, in the context of speciation research as well as on larger evolutionary time-scales. The ultimate goal of the project is to gain a conceptual understanding of the role of molecular evolution and adaptation at different evolutionary time-scales and levels. This applies to genetic and epigenetic changes in protein coding sequences, regulatory elements and transposable elements. You will acquire cutting-edge skills in bioinformatics and statistical analysis, which are essential for modern biology research. In addition, the project will involve mathematical modelling.

Qualifications required: To be eligible for a PhD-student position the applicant must hold a master degree (or equivalent) in mathematics, bioinformatics or biology, at the time of appointment. The applicant with a mathematics background must have an interest in molecular evolution and population genetics, and a readiness to acquire relevant skills in bioinformatics. The applicant with a bioinformatics or biology background must have a readiness to acquire relevant skills in computer science, statistics and mathematics. Candidates must be able to express themselves fluently in spoken as well as written English. In addition, the applicant must be able to work independently, have good collaborative skills and be able to communicate (both spoken as well as written). The applicant must have integrity and personal maturity, be able take initiative and handle setbacks.

Position: The graduate program covers four years of full-time study. The position can be combined with teaching or other duties at the department (maximum 20%), which prolongs the employment with the corresponding time. The salary will be set according to local agreements. Rules governing PhD candidates are set out in the Higher Education Ordinance Chapter 5, 1-7 and in Uppsala university’s rules and guidelines http://regler.uu.se/search/?hits=30&languageId=1&search-language_en=English. More information about postgraduate studies at Uppsala University is available at http://www.teknat.uu.se/education/postgraduate/.

The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in the Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education and Research (CIPhER). The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy (www.pharmacy.unc.edu) is one of 5 health science schools (Pharmacy, Nursing, Dentistry, Public Health, and Medicine) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Chapel Hill is located near the prestigious Research Triangle Park of North Carolina and faculty members have a strong history of collaboration with external partners in the area. The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is a nationally recognized leader in pharmacy practice, education, and research committed to developing leaders who make a positive difference on human health worldwide. The School has built a reputation for its continued pursuit of excellence, rigorous education and training Centers, cutting-edge multidisciplinary research, progressive pharmacy practices, efficient business operations, and its outstanding faculty, staff, and students. The School was recently named the number one School of Pharmacy in the U.S. by the U.S. News and World Report. The School has experienced unprecedented growth and success and continues to strategically position itself for sustained impact, as articulated in the School's Strategic Plan 2012-2017 (https://pharmacy.unc.edu/about/ospa/). Founded in 2017, the CIPhER's mission focuses broadly on improving the practice of pharmacy education and the quality and impact of research and scholarship on pharmacy education by coordinating and fostering the efforts of the School's faculty, clinical preceptors, postgraduate fellows, residents and teaching assistants. CIPhER aims to help faculty and others to more effectively: teach, assess and promote student learning; produce peer-reviewed publications and compete for grants; and generate income by commercializing education-related products such as surveys, inventories, tests, teaching materials, online instruction (e.g., MOOCs), and digital applications. CIPhER sponsors certificate offerings, contributes to continuing professional education, offers onsite and online training workshops and seminars, and coordinates relevant, mutually beneficial efforts with entities such as the UNC Center for Faculty Excellence, other UNC health science schools, the UNC School of Education, ACPE, ACCP, and the PharmAlliance. To support, facilitate, and advance this work, we are seeking three (3) highly qualified postdoctoral fellows. A one-year postdoctoral fellowship provides exposure and mentored experience across the full range of educational research activities, including study design, data collection, data analysis, manuscript preparation, and grant writing. Although the program will be tailored to the fellow's unique skills and experiences, s/he will gain broad experience in educational research and assessment supporting the core mission of CIPhER. Health professions schools are uniquely positioned to examine critical educational research questions that are not only of importance to themselves, but of increasing interest and significance to larger audiences across higher education. CIPhER is committed to producing rigorous and systematic educational research that will provide insight necessary to advance strategic initiatives, improve student outcomes, enhance workforce development, and position the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy as a model of educational innovation and excellence, nationally and globally. Each CIPhER Postdoctoral Fellow reports directly to one of the core staff: the Director of CIPhER, the Director of Education Research and Scholarship, or the Director of Educational Development - but will work closely with all CIPhER staff and associates. Appointment includes a UNC benefits package and competitive stipend.
