Roles of metabolism in the developmental origins of health and longevity A postdoctoral research position funded by the Wellcome Trust is available in the laboratory of Dr. Alex Gould at the Francis Crick Institute in London. The lab works on the mechanisms by which dietary nutrients during development can have profound long-term effects upon adult[…]
Background Mutualistic relationships between bacteria and complex organisms have repeatedly evolved and this has allowed host organisms to exploit new environments and foods. One of the most extreme and fascinating cases of symbiosis in the animal kingdom is observed in annelid worms of the genus Riftia and Osedax. These animals are able to live in particularly[…]
An exciting opportunity to be part of a pioneering biomedical research institute, dedicated to innovation and science. A postdoctoral research post in the laboratory of Dr. Alex P. Gould is now available. We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to identify the, as yet unknown, molecular mechanisms by which dietary nutrients and oxidative stress[…]
On Monday, September 19th, a group of early career researchers from across the UK and across the sciences gathered at the Royal Society in London to discuss the future of research at a one day conference. As the Node’s Community Manager, I was lucky enough to be allowed to join in. I’ve only recently left research, and[…]
