The DNA replication group, Imperial College London, is looking to recruit a motivated and highly creative Research Associates interested in understanding how the eukaryotic replicative helicase promotes accurate DNA replication using biochemical approaches.
One of the most fundamental property of all living things is the ability to replicate their DNA, which allows cells to pass on their genetic material from parent to progeny. The Speck’s lab reconstituted eukaryotic replicative helicase loading with purified Saccharomyces cerevisiae proteins and identified the MCM2-7 double-hexamer as the template for replication fork assembly (Evrin et al PNAS 2009).
We are now in a strong position to address how the replicative helicase becomes activated for DNA synthesis.
The candidates will employ our well-established in vitro reconstituted system (Evrin et al PNAS 2009; Noguchi et al PNAS 2017) to study how the replicative helicase becomes activated during S-phase.

The journalCorrespondencesinvites proposals for contributions to a special issue on masculinities, sexualities and esotericism. Gender as an analytical approach has gained significant momentum within esotericism studies, with an accumulating body of work on women, femininities and feminism within a range of esoteric traditions, including Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, Spiritualism, Swedenborgianism, Satanism, Behmenism, Paganism, mesmerism and freemasonry. Literary and cultural articulations of gender and gender politics have constituted a particularly productive research area, as has related work on sexualities, including on sex magic, sexology, and queer practices and identities. The tracing of further interdisciplinary points of connection is being aided by the recent establishment of an Esotericism, Gender and Sexuality network (ESOGEN) affiliated to the European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism (ESSWE).
What remains underrepresented within this emergent scholarly field is a specific focus on men, masculinities and sexualities, an elision this special issue seeks to remedy. Since the advent of masculinity studies nearly three decades ago, when John Tosh characterised masculinity in the historical record as ‘everywhere but nowhere’, scholars working in numerous fields have worked to decentre and problematize the male norm, through empirical studies of pluralized masculinities in diverse cultures, periods and contexts.[i] This work has confirmed the salience of masculinity to an understanding of numerous aspects of our national and international cultures, societies and politics. In the process, foundational theoretical models of masculine hierarchies and the mechanics of gendered power have been comprehensively revised, with new work questioning the existence of one hegemonic form of masculinity predominating and legitimising patriarchy in any given society.[ii] Instead, the formation of masculine identity is now more likely to be understood as a fluid process occurring within diverse ‘communication communities’ or ‘cultural circuits’, such as esoteric subcultures and networks, with a new recognition of the ways in which male identities are always intersected by other modalities of power, including race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, ability and age.[iii]
This special issue seeks to establish men, masculinities and sexualities as a vital, trenchant and timely field of enquiry within esotericism studies. It endeavours to do this in two ways. Firstly, it seeks to create interdisciplinary dialogue between history of religions, gender studies and related fields to allow the identification of critical avenues for future exploration. Secondly, it aims to elucidate the very latest theoretical and methodological approaches currently being used by scholars of masculinities and indicate how they might be productively deployed to create new frameworks in which to think about esotericism. Contemporary gender and sexual politics render this intervention an urgent one: the resurgence of heteropatriarchy within public discourse and society, evidenced by the #MeToo moment, the masculinist rhetoric of populist and Alt-right politicians and commentators, and enduring patterns of male violence, highlight the imperative to expose, analyse and challenge gendered and sexual hegemonies within all systems of knowledge, while also identifying the feminist practices required to enact progressive gender change.
Contributions are warmly encouraged from authors at all career stages, including independent scholars, working individually or collaboratively within any discipline. Potential topics could include but are not limited to the following:
- male selfhood and subjectivity
- the male body and embodiment, including ideas and experiences of disability
- male intimacies and relationships (friendship and familial)
- queer and trans masculinities
- emotions; emotional regimes and communities
- gender and sexual politics, including feminism and gay rights
- ‘man’ and/or ‘gender’ as ontological categories
- sexual rituals and magic
- sexual knowledge and education
- masculine norms/ideals; masculine hierarchies
- literary, artistic, cultural and popular articulations of manhood, masculinities and sexualities
- sexological, psycho-analytic and scientific understandings
- masculinities and race, imperialism and post-colonialism
Detailed proposals (up to 1,000 words) for full articles (8,000 to 10,000 words), as well as a short biography (max. 100 words) should be sent to both editors by 1 November 2020. Please contact the editors at any stage with queries. Final drafts of articles will be due by 1 September 2021.

The CALA 2020, February 5-8, 2020, Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia, will follow on from the success of the CALA 2019, in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The CALA 2020 will thus expand on work on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, as well as Asian Language and Society. Here, the global Linguistic Anthropologists will gather to discuss work on Linguistics, Anthropology, and Language and Society, in and of Asia, and beyond.
With an increased focus on the significance of Asian Language and society, the Annual CALA Conference has emerged at an appropriate time, opportuning academics from the West to tap into, and work with, Academia in the East. Scholars in institutions throughout Asia increasingly affiliate with the CALA network, as do those in Western contexts, to explore the vast possibilities of the Conference on Asian Linguistic Anthropology, academically, and socioculturally, where the CALA network has now well contributed and has significantly boosted research, publications, and academic networks, globally.
Themed Asian Text, Global Context, The CALA 2020 will represent over 400 years of East-West global interaction, communication, and transnationalism. Throughout, symbolisms of Asian ‘texts’ have been significantly emphasized, (re)interpreted, contested, and distorted, while employed for cultural and political purpose. Asian texts have become highly representational, authenticating and legitimizing sociopolitical and cultural devices, where their potency should not be undervalued. Never have these texts shown more significance than in the present, as their intensified use, and their qualities in Asian identities long contested, seek this Linguistic Anthropological exploration.
The Asian text has thus regenerated itself as a semiotic, in that, as a verbal, non-verbal, and visual artifact, it encompasses the whole semiotic spectrum of that which is performatively Asian, and that which is distinct from the Non-Asian, yet a text which can interlink the East and the West, through a multitude of textual modes. The continuous recentralizations and recontextualizations of Asian texts, both locally and globally, have hence become vital to representations of Asia, Linguistically, Anthropologically, Socioculturally, Politically, and much more.
The CALA 2020 thus calls for renewed interpretations of Asian texts, and asks that we seek new perspectives of these complex texts, in global contexts. These interpretations increase in significance as; return migration to Asia is now a salient factor in transnational flows; online texts and their textual modes now compete ever more enthusiastically to effect disjunctures in previously Western dominated technologies; ontological conceptions of life and social interaction now increasingly draw from Asian philosophies, sociocultural models, lifeworlds, and Asian urban anthropologies, thus producing interstices for new or revised textual and textualized semiotics; the entangled complexities and intersubjectivities of political, sociocultural, and religious practices and their constraints, motivate engagements in interfaith dialogue, shifting ethnic demarcations, and sociopolitical interventions. Ultimately, the massive sets of Eastern demographics, and their expansive sets of social dynamics, models, and praxes, continue to uniquely inform and (re)complexify productions of Asian texts, in both local and in global contexts.
Abstract and poster proposals should address one or more of the key strands related to Asian countries and regions:
· Colloquia – 1.5 hours with 3-5 contributors (Parts A and B are possible, thus 6-10 contributors)
· General paper sessions – Approx. 20-25 minutes each, including 5 mins for questions/responses
