Two PhD Studentships in Neuroscience


Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, University College Cork, Ireland


Applications are invited for two 4-year PhD studentships, funded by the Science Foundation of Ireland, which will commence in September 2013. We welcome applications from motivated candidates who possess, or expect to obtain, an upper 2.1 or 1st class BSc or MSc in Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Physiology, Biochemistry or a related discipline. Experience in molecular, biochemical and cellular laboratory procedures would be advantageous, but not essential, since training will be provided. The projects will be supervised by Dr. Yvonne Nolan (PI) and Prof. John Cryan (co-PI). Student stipend is €18,000 per annum, plus fees.


The projects: Role of nuclear receptors in inflammatory-related changes in hippocampal neurogenesis

Neurogenesis, the birth of new neurons from neural stem cells, occurs throughout adulthood in the hippocampus, a brain region responsible for learning and memory. Inflammation negatively affects memory and we have shown that the pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1? also negatively affects hippocampal neurogenesis. Nuclear receptors play a regulatory role in both neurogenesis and memory and some have now been identified as potential drug targets for neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders associated with memory dysfunction. The aim of these projects is to investigate how IL-1? and its signalling pathway components alter the function of some nuclear receptors and their role in the survival and lineage fate of adult rodent neural stem cells. Both projects will use pharmacological and molecular manipulation (viral-mediated overexpression, shRNA knockdown) of neural stem cells in vitro and in vivo. Results may be important for developing neurogenesis augmentation therapies for hippocampal-related cognitive disorders.

To apply:
Send the following documents by email to Dr. Yvonne Nolan and Prof. John Cryan at nolanlab@ucc.ie:
(1) A letter of introduction describing your interest in this position and a clear statement regarding your competence
(2) Your CV

Contract Type: Fixed Term Whole-Time
Job Type: Research

“Investigation of the cellular and molecular consequences of maternal inflammation on the cytoarchitecture of the developing spinal cord”

An Anatomical Society (www.anatsoc.org.uk) funded three-year PhD studentship is available from the 01/10/2014 jointly in the University of Limerick Graduate Entry Medical School (UL GEMS) and Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience in University College Cork (UCC). The successful applicant will undertake this research in the state-of-the-art laboratories in UL GEMS and the Biosciences Institute in UCC.

Recently evidence has indicated that physiological challenges in early life have profound effects on later susceptibility to neurological disorders and chronic disease. Conditions such as cerebral palsy, autism, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, epilepsy and general age-related neurodegeneration have all been linked to environmental influences in early life, often at foetal stages. New findings reveal that maternal inflammation can result in disturbances in the white matter of the developing foetal nervous system; affecting both myelinating cells, myelin and axons. However, the mechanism(s) by which these cells are affected as well as the critical windows of vulnerability are unclear. Specifically the goal of this project will be to address this knowledge gap by testing the hypothesis that maternal inflammation detrimentally affects oligodendrocytes and neurones, which are derived from an early common progenitor cell, in a temporally and spatially precise manner and leads to specific pathobiological white matter changes, and potentially alterations in the architecture of the motor system.

Applicants should have or expect to attain a first or upper second class honours degree in either Anatomy or Neuroscience or another closely related subject such as Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, etc. We are particularly interested in individuals with experience or backgrounds in development, microscopy and molecular biology and who are capable of maximising the benefit of carrying out the research in the two collaborating laboratories. Thus we are seeking a highly motivated, hard-working candidate with the ability to work independently to drive this demanding project.

The studentship includes an annual stipend based on Anatomical Society guidelines (starting at approx. €17000 per annum) and includes all tuition fees (EU level) and annual conference travel allowances.

To Apply:

Interested candidates should send via email, a letter stating why you are interested and why you would be suitable for the position and a CV to include the names and contact details of two referees to;

The concept of utilising nucleic acids including siRNA or miRNA to manipulate genes for therapeutic purposes is well known. However, the ability to translate this concept into a gene medicine has to date been limited by the availability of safe and effective delivery systems. Significant opportunities exist to apply RNAi effectors in the treatment of  neurodegenerative diseases provided the barriers to delivery including permeability across the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) can be overcome. This project involves the design and formulation of nano-delivery technologies to complex, protect and delivery nucleic acid cargos to the brain. The work will also involve establishing and validating physiologically relevant BBB models to effectively assess the performance of prototype nano-complexes.

This project will build on the long standing collaboration between the Cryan and O’Driscoll labs, which unites expertise in neuropharmacology and drug delivery technology and has a proven track record in joint peer reviewed publications.

This is an advanced training role where you will conduct a specific program of research and research training under the supervision of a Principal Investigator (PI). The primary purpose of the role is to deliver research results and objectives, develop new or advanced research skill and competencies, assist in the successful development of funding proposals and to interact in the supervision and mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students, in conjunction with the academic supervisor.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated scientist with a strong interest in drug delivery & neuroscience and an ability to work to a high standard with a proven track record in publishing papers in peer review journals. This position offers the opportunity to work in a multidisciplinary environment involving chemists, drug delivery scientists, neuroscientists and clinicians.

Indeed, Neuroscience is a growing area within UCC and the Cork Neuroscience Centre http://www.ucc.ie/en/cns has recently been designated as a Centre of Excellence in Neurodegeneration (CoEN). Research strengths within the Department include stress neurobiology, brain-gut communication, neuro-inflammation, neurodegeneration, cognitive neuroscience and the developing or ageing brain.

We are particularly interested in candidates with high-impact, internationally recognised research programmes that may intersect with ongoing Departmental interests and/or the neuroscience research within the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centres of the College of Medicine & Health: The APC Microbiome Institute http://www.ucc.ie/research/apc/content/ and INFANT http://www.infantcentre.ie. Candidates should have a track record to be competitive for applying to the European Research Council or similar Investigator Programmes for research funding.
