  The role of the epigenetic diet in modulating apoptotic cell death in human carcinogenesis (ref: SF18/APP/Panagiotidis)
  Prof M Panagiotidis
Applications accepted all year round
Epigenetic modifications can contribute to carcinogenesis by various means including altering gene expression responsible for evading apoptotic cell death, abnormal cell proliferation, etc.
  Profiling stem cell epigenetic transitions within the Drosophila hematopoietic stem cell niche
  Dr P Badenhorst, Prof C Bonifer
Applications accepted all year round
The self-renewal and differentiation of stem cells is controlled by signals derived from the microenvironment or “niche”. The paired hematopoietic organs of the Drosophila genetic model organism are a well-characterized system in which the regulation of stem cell behaviour within a niche can be genetically dissected.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round
Most mRNAs contain modified nucleotides in mRNA, but we know very little about their function (Haussmann et al, 2016, Dezi et al, 2016, Roignant and Soller, 2017).
  PhD project on Epigenetic Mechanisms in Neuroscience: uncovering the role of three dimensional chromatin organization
  Dr E Elliott
Applications accepted all year round
We are seeking an enthusiastic student for a novel project on the epigenetic basis of behavior. The goal of the project, under the direct supervision of Dr.
  DNA Strategic Epigenetic Biomarkers in Melanoma
  Dr C Proby, Prof C N A Palmer
Applications accepted all year round
Hypothesis. That tumour-specific DNA methylation present in free circulating DNA from melanoma patients will enable early detection of disease relapse or metastasis facilitating life-preserving benefit from additional therapies such as immune checkpoint inhibitors.
  Epigenetic mechanisms of behavioural, placental and cognitive impairment in a neurodevelopmental model for schizophrenia
  Dr R Hager, Prof J Neill, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round
A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
  Epigenetic regulation in heart failure and cardiac sudden death
  Dr X Wang, Dr V Liu
Applications accepted all year round
A large proportion of heart failure patients die from cardiac sudden death (SCD), a direct result of lethal ventricular arrhythmias, which is the principal cause of mortality from heart disease worldwide and remains a major unresolved public health problem.
  PhD position in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics - how epigenetic and epi-transcriptomic changes regulate gene expression programs in ES cells
  Dr P P Das
Applications accepted all year round
PhD position is available for a highly motivated trainee in the led of Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics at “Epigenetics and Gene regulation Laboratory” within Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI), Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Metabolic programming: Role of micronutrient (B12) deficiency and associated epigenetic marks
  Dr A Antonysunil
Applications accepted all year round
The global epidemic of childhood obesity is a major public health issue. Although current adverse lifestyle (nutrition and physical inactivity) contributes to obesity, a growing body of evidence links early life nutritional adversity to the development of obesity and metabolic disorders in children.
  Epigenetic changes in Plant Acclimation.
  Prof T Lawson, Dr R Zabet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Scientific background. Plants, including all our crop plants, live in a dynamic environment with external conditions varying over the day and season and these signals influence how a plant grows and how productive it is.
