Research Assistant, APC Microbiome

University CollegeCork€26,609 - €35,922 per year

21 Months, Fixed-Term, Whole-time Post Position Summary APC Microbiome Ireland (APC) was formed in 2003 with funding from Science Foundation Ireland and in conjunction with key industry partners. It represents a seamless collaboration between UCC, Teagasc, Moorepark and CIT. It is widely recognised that our microbiome (community of bacteria/viruses and fungi that live in and on our bodies) plays an important role in human health and has become one of the most dynamic, complex and exciting areas of research in both food and pharmaceutical arenas. Over the last decade the APC Microbiome Ireland has established itself as one of the leading global centres in gut microbiota research. The APC has made several landmark discoveries and has published over 3000 research articles in peer-reviewed journals, generating many journal covers and associated editorials. APC Microbiome Ireland comprises over 300 individuals, from the scientific PI’s (the APC Faculty) funded by the partner Institutions, the management team, and a dedicated group of research scientists, research assistants and postgraduate’s students. We are currently recruiting for the following Research Assistant role in the Brain-Gut Axis Spoke with APC Microbiome Ireland, which addresses the communication between the brain and the gut, and how it can be influenced by the gastrointestinal microbiota. The term ‘psychobiotic’ was coined by Dinan et al. Biol Psychiatry in 2013 as a ‘live organism that, when ingested in adequate amounts, produces a health benefit in patients suffering from psychiatric illness’. In this project, which will be conducted in collaboration with an industry partner, we aim to assess predicted in silico properties of potential psychobiotics, with in vitro and ex-vivo activities in immune, stress, neuroendocrine and neurotransmitter systems of relevance to gut-brain axis signalling pathways. We will also use cell-based assays and investigate the role of candidate psychobiotic strains in gut-brain interactions, physiology and behaviour in animal models. The program is highly interdisciplinary, utilising in vitro screening models, behaviour, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, pharmacology, and brain circuit determination coupled with metabolomics & microbiome analysis. The successful candidate will be expected to make an outstanding contribution to the preclinical and translational arm of the laboratory and to work towards successfully meeting the goals and objectives of the project. The candidate should have excellent communication skills, a good command of the English language and be highly motivated to work in a multidisciplinary team. Qualifications/experience: The ideal candidate(s) should have experience with in vitro cell-based assays and ex-vivo tissue assays. Also, experience in molecular analysis (DNA, RNA, proteins) as well as centrally expressed G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), neuropeptides and gut hormones within the microbiota-brain-gut axis would be an advantage. Previous experience of gut-brain axis research is desirable and the successful candidate will be expected to support animal behavioural studies. They will be self-motivated with ability to conduct independent research to a very high level.
