=='''PhD project position “Target-based antiplasmodial drug discovery using yeast” - Sunnerhagen lab (posted 13 February 2020)'''==
 +
'''Description:''' We use a target-based strategy based on surrogate genetics in yeast to discover and develop drug candidates directed against proteins from the Plasmodium malaria parasite. Plasmodium genes are cloned into vectors for regulatable expression in yeast. The human protein ortholog is expressed in a parallel yeast strain, and the effects of candidate drugs on growth of yeast strains expressing the parasite or the human protein are compared. The project is a collaboration involving several research groups representing different scientific disciplines, from Sweden and Brazil.
  
Multiple post-doctoral research positions are available in the laboratory of Prof. Peter De Wulf, which recently moved from the European Institute of Oncology (Milan, Italy) to the Centre for Integrative Biology (CIBIO), University of Trento (Trento, Italy (http://www.cibio.unitn.it)).
+
'''Position Overview:''' The successful PhD candidate should have an interest in participating in an interdisciplinary international project. Beside a molecular biology/microbiology background, proficiency in one or more of the following areas is valuable: bioinformatics, genomics, programming, high throughput techniques including robotics, biochemistry, molecular modelling, structural biology, and pharmacy.  
  
Available projects include the study of (i) how a minimally understood, conserved kinase regulates the timing of kinetochore assembly and re-organization during the ''S. cerevisiae'' cell cycle and (ii) how a novel and conserved ubiquitin-driven response pathway ensures kinetochore subunit homeostasis in ''S. cerevisiae''.
+
'''How to apply:''' This PhD project at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden will soon open for applications. The starting date is flexible but has to be in 2020. We are looking for candidates with an interest in an international collaborative project and having a molecular biology background. Experience from yeast genetics is advantageous. Interested candidates can contact [mailto:per.sunnerhagen@cmb.gu.se Per Sunnerhagen] for more information.
  
Knowledge of molecular biology, biochemistry, fluorescence (live-cell) microscopy and/or genetics is required. Additional experience with yeast cell cycle biology (mitosis or meiosis) is an advantage. Please send your curriculum vitae to peter.dewulf@unitn.it.

=='''Postdoctoral Position in Yeast Molecular Biology/Bioinformatics (posted 20 August 2019)'''==
 +
'''Description:''' A NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. David Kadosh in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Research will use cutting-edge techniques to study molecular mechanisms that control gene expression, morphology, virulence and virulence-related properties in response to host environmental cues in the yeast ''Candida albicans'', a major human fungal pathogen. For additional details and previous publications, please see [https://wp.uthscsa.edu/mimg/team-member/david-kadosh-ph-d/]. Many opportunities are available for collaboration with both basic and clinical fungal pathogenesis researchers at the large and internationally recognized San Antonio Center for Medical Mycology (see [http://www.sacmm.org/]). The successful applicant will receive equivalent to NIH-level salary and full benefits. Located in south central Texas, near both Austin and the Texas Hill Country, San Antonio is one of the lowest cost-of-living major metropolitan areas in the U.S.
  
'''Description:''' Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the group of Taras Nazarko studying mechanisms of lipophagy, the selective autophagy of lipid droplets (LDs). Lipophagy is accomplished by delivery of LDs from the cytosol to the lysosome (or vacuole in yeast). As in other autophagic pathways, the core autophagic machinery forms the autophagic isolation membrane that sequesters the LD from the cytosol. However, how this autophagic membrane recognizes the LD after lipophagy induction is unknown. Also, it is not clear how lipophagy is kept in check the rest of the time. Therefore, lipophagy selectivity and regulation are the key gaps in our understanding of this pathway. A postdoctoral scholar will develop a project in one of these areas. Mechanistic understanding in these areas is critical for the precise control of lipophagy in humans for the prevention and treatment of various lipid accumulation diseases, like atherosclerosis and obesity. Initial appointment is for 1 year with possible extension for up to 5 years of overall postdoctoral training. Salary is commensurate with experience (NIH NRSA scale).
