Inland University of Applied Sciences, Department of Sports Sciences, invites candidates to apply for a 3-year fully funded PhD research fellowship, starting 1 January 2018. If the department finds it expedient, the employment period may be expanded to 4 years, with 25 % teaching duties.
The purpose of the Ph.D. Research Fellowship is for the admitted candidate to undergo a research-training program that leads to completion of a doctoral degree. This requires admittance to a relevant PhD program of study, which must be applied for and agreed upon no later than 3 months after the date of appointment. The staff at the Department of Sports Sciences will assist the selected candidate in formulating this proposal. The appointed candidate will be working in an expanding research program at INN, aiming to unravel the physiological and cellular determinants of training adaptations. Currently, the research group consists of eight academic staff members, as well as four Ph.D.-students, with a postdoctoral position currently being advertised. Two researchers working with expertise in massively parallel sequencing (also RNA-seq), bioinformatics and molecular biology at Campus Hamar are collaborators on the project.
Strength training improves muscular functions in humans, leading to enhanced performance in a variety of sports and providing health and quality of life in a lifelong perspective. Its ergogenic effects includes increased muscle strength, power and endurance, accompanied by changes in muscle biology such as increased muscle mass and conversion towards a more aerobic phenotype. Unfortunately, strength-training responses are not uniform across the population and many individuals fail to show the expected adaptations. Although this phenomenon is widely acknowledged, its underlying cellular determinants remain largely elusive. The purpose of the current PhD-project is to investigate the relationship between strength-training adaptations, with particular focus on the relationship between differences in muscle growth and muscle cell biology, measured as both inherent and training-induced cellular/phenotypic traits (i.e. gene expression/protein abundance). To assess this, the candidate will utilize data and muscle tissue from already conducted human studies, as well as from studies in progress, all being associated with the general biobank "The Trainsome - adaptations of human cells to exercise and environment". Methodological approaches will include bioinformatics analysis of RNA-seq data, as well as quantitative PCR and western blotting. The candidate will test hypotheses emerging from RNA-seq data by overexpressing specific candidate genes in in vitro-cultured muscle cells, utilizing techniques such as cell culturing, molecular cloning and transfection.
