Post-doc forskerstilling (vikariat) – Klinikk for diagnostikk og intervensjon, Seksjon for forskning, Avdeling for medisinsk biokjemi, Enhet for Vevskultur, Regenerativ medisin

Enhet for vevskultur, regenerativ medisin har som sitt forskningsmål å utvikle et optimalt system for lagring av dyrkede celler med det formål å utvide adgangen til regenerativ medisin. For å fremme effektiv transplantasjon av lagrede, dyrkede vev tester vi at vevets grunnleggende karakter er uendret etter lagring; viabilitet, fenotype og morfologi.
Vi søker en erfaren og motivert post-doc for stillingen som forsker. Stillingen er et vikariat i 100 % med 1 års varighet. Det er mulighet til forlengelse/fast ansettelse for en god kandidat med eksepsjonelle ferdigheter. Vi søker etter en entusiastisk og målrettet person som kan arbeide selvstendig så vel som i samarbeid med vårt team.

Søknader sendes via e-post til [email protected]
Kandidater som blir utvalgt for intervju vil bli kontaktet av søkerkomiteen.

Søknadsfrist: asap

What is molecular gastronomy? Can it be used in high-quality science communication? by Erik Fooladi

What is molecular gastronomy?
Can it be used in high-quality science communication?

Pizza will be served from 16:00

The seminar will be in English.

Abstract:
The term molecular gastronomy first appeared in the late 1980´s and has since gained increasing momentum. It has been a source of fascination, development and reorientation within both certain areas of science as well as society. It has also stirred feelings resulting in heated debates amongst both researchers and artisans. Is this a societal movement, is it a scientific discipline, or maybe it is simply a fad? The presentation given will discuss what molecular gastronomy is (or can be) as well as ways to use this phenomenon to communicate an intriguing but yet fairly balanced picture of the nature of science.

Title: Guiding signals through anchored enzyme complexes: implications for disease

Abstract: Intracellular signal transduction events are precisely regulated in space and time. This is achieved in part by A-Kinase Anchoring Proteins (AKAPs) that tether a variety of protein kinases and phosphatases in proximity to selected substrates. AKAP targeting provides an efficient means to reversibly control the phosphorylation status of key substrates and contributes to the dynamic regulation of sophisticated cellular pathways. Using biochemical, genetic, and super-resolution imaging techniques we show that the anchoring protein Gravin enhances the precision of cellular signaling at the spindle poles of cells undergoing mitosis. In particular, Gravin functions to assemble a kinase signaling scaffold that comprises of Aurora A and Polo-like kinase 1, two enzymes that govern passage through the mammalian cell cycle. More clinically relevant studies have discovered that aberrant Gravin signaling contributes to pathological changes in the mitotic index and polarized division of cancer cells in common germline derived tumors such as testicular seminomas.

Time and place: Oct 13, 2015 01:00 PM – 02:00 PM, Runde auditorium (R-105), Domus Medica tilbygg, Sognsvannsveien 9, Oslo.

About: Professor John D. Scott and his group are located at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Department of Pharmacology, University of Washington, Seattle, US. The Scott research group is interested in understanding the specificity of signal transduction events that are controlled by anchoring proteins. Anchoring proteins facilitate rapid signal transduction by optimally positioning protein kinases and phosphatases in the vicinity of their activating signals and close to their substrates.
