  Elucidating the signalling pathways important for plasma cell biology and antibody secretion
  Dr A Peden, Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plasma cells are the antibody secreting cells of the immune system thus are vital for fighting infection. However, dysregulation of plasma cell function is linked to a broad range of disease from Lupus to multiple myeloma.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  Rhomboid-like proteins and the cell biology of signalling
  Prof M Freeman
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main questions we study are what cellular mechanisms regulate signalling between animal cells, and how does that signalling control biological functions like physiology, development and disease? Our current focus recently is the rhomboid-like superfamily of proteins.
  Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology
  Dr D G Kent, Dr I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  Super resolution imaging of DNA damage and repair - Interdisciplinary Single Molecule Biology PhD
  Dr D Whelan
Application Deadline: 3 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. A fully funded La Trobe University PhD scholarship is available in the Whelan Single-Molecule Biophysics group, to be undertaken at the Bendigo campus within the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS).
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Dr P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Lui
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Understanding the glycobiology of metastatic breast cancer by chemical biology
  Dr I Malanchi, Dr B Schumann
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A joint Crick-Imperial College London funded PhD position for the 2020 programme between the labs of Ilaria Malanchi and Ben Schumann.
  Understanding how the NuRD complex regulates 3D genome organization using a combination of single-molecule super-resolution imaging and single cell biology
  Prof E D Laue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spatial organisation of the genome is known to play an important role in regulating RNA transcription to effect cell-type-specific gene expression programs, and to control the differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells.
