The ladies of the IHA who this year will be participating in Cancer Research UK's 'Race for Life' successfully held a bake sale on Wednesday and raised an impressive £290 towards their total goal! A huge variety of delicious cakes, generously baked by the team and their friends from the IHA, were snapped up by hungry staff and students alike. Thanks team and well done! If you would like to make a donation to this worthy cause please visit the team's JustGiving page at: http://www.raceforlifesponsorme.org More...

We are delighted to announce that the 'Green-Darwin' Green Impact Team has won two Bronze Awards which were presented by the Provost at an Awards Ceremony held last week. The IHA's Giovanna Vinti secured the first award for 'Green-Darwin Labs' and the 'Green Darwin' team won a second.
These fantastic achievements form part of the efforts of the wider UCL community in pressing forward the green agenda. Awards went to teams across UCL for work that included putting up awareness-raising notices and posters encouraging people to switch off lights and equipment when not needed, potentially saving 7,038kg CO2 per year; and likewise to print and photocopy double-sided, potentially saving 108,594kg CO2 and £40,220 on resource costs this year across the institution.

Research Associate (2 posts): Biology of Aging, Ref:1328360
We are seeking two post-doctoral workers to join a large and dynamic interdisciplinary team investigating the mechanisms of ageing in nematode worms, the fruitfly Drosophila and the mouse. The work is focussed on understanding how nutrient-sensing pathways control ageing, and the nature of the ageing process itself. These appointments will be primarily for work with C. elegans, in the laboratory of Prof. David Gems. Work will include genetic and genomic approaches, and pharmacological manipulation of key molecules.
Both positions are for 36 months in the first instance with the possibility of extension. The positions are available from 1 June 2013, or thereafter.
Applicants must have a PhD (or be about to receive one) in a relevant area, such as genetics or biochemistry together with a good knowledge of biochemistry and molecular biology with a special focus on signalling pathways and transcriptional control. Experience of C. elegans genetics and/or ageing is desirable.
Closing date for applications is 23rd May 2013.
For informal queries about the vacancy, please contact Michael Wright, email@example.com or David Gems firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any queries regarding the application process, please contact Christine Davis email@example.com
