  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
  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.
  mRNA epigenetics: Charaterization of a novel layer of gene regulation for essential brain functions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller, Dr PG Grzechnik
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
For over 40 years we know about modified nucleotides in mRNA, but the functions for these essential modifications are largely elusive.
  The Epigenetics of Child Language - exploring the involvement of DNA methylation in the development of languageskills in children.
  Dr G Sharp
Applications accepted all year round
Oral Language skills are essential to everyday life. Most children acquire them effortlessly but. some are “language impaired”. It is currently unclear what causes this variability between.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round
V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Development of Novel Tools to Determine how Aberrant V(D)J Recombination Reactions Cause Leukaemia
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Applications accepted all year round
V(D)J recombination generates a highly diverse set of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes to enable vertebrates to fight a vast range of infections.
  Epigenetics, embryogenesis and plasticity in insects.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr A.D. Peel
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
All animals respond to their environment but some are able generate morphologically and behaviourally distinct individuals from the same genome in response to an environmental cue, a phenomenon known as phenotypic plasticity.
  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 mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity and the evolution of adaptive responses
  Dr R Hager, Prof J McInerney
Applications accepted all year round
We now live in a world of rapidly changing environmental conditions where species will need to adapt or perish. While populations may evolve in response to environmental change, more rapid responses may happen through processes like phenotypic plasticity.
  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.
