  Tumor-promoting roles of the chromatin-associated DEK oncogene in metastatic melanoma
  Dr F Kappes, Prof C Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The candidate should have a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification) in biochemistry, cell biology or a life-science related discipline.
  Role of the tumour microenvironment in gastric cancer
  Dr A. Boussioutas, Dr R. Busuttil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common cancer globally and 7th in incidence in Australia. It has a poor survival rate which can be attributed to the advanced stage at diagnosis in most patients.
  Emerging targeted radiation therapies: simulations and benchmarking of cellular response to radiation.
  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
  Dr C Diget
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ionizing radiation is a highly effective way to treat cancer. It is used in about 50% of all cancer patients, either alone or in combination with surgery or chemotherapy.
  MSc by Research Programme: Investigating the tumor suppressor functions of chromatin remodelling
  Prof T A Owen-hughes
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Theranostic Combination of Targeted Fluorescence Imaging and Photodynamic Therapy
  Dr D O’Shea, Dr B Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Project Description. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a modern treatment that uses light to locally photosensitize tissues, resulting in the selective killing of targeted cells.
  Diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in lung cancer
  Dr D CL Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of my research laboratory is to develop and implement new ways to improve the prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer through multi-disciplinary research that translates results between the laboratory and the clinic.
  Isthmin-1 in mammary gland branching morphogenesis and breast cancer tumorigenesis
  Prof Z Zhou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Isthmin-1 is a newly identified extracellular matrix protein which has been shown to be widely expressed and is critical for Nodal signaling (Osorio et al.
  PhD Positions in Cancer Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you looking for excellent research opportunities for your PhD studies at the forefront of cancer research? The German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)…
  Exploiting stemness as a cancer cell vulnerability using hepatocellular carcinoma as a model system
  Dr S Ma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumors are composed of non-homogeneous cell populations exhibiting varying degrees of genetic and functional heterogeneity. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are capable of sustaining tumors by manipulating genetic and non-genetic factors to metastasize, resist treatment, and maintain the tumor microenvironment.
  Investigating the mechanobiological mechanisms of cancer
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is the second-leading cause for death globally and there is a high demand for novel approaches to understand and treat cancer.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
  Novel mechanisms of hypoxic metabolic reprogramming in metastatic cancers
  Dr L Schito
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hypoxia, a common feature of most human cancers, activates a multifaceted transcriptional, post-transcriptional, translational and epigenetic adaptive program that allows cancer cells to reprogram their metabolism in order to survive the unfavourable conditions of the tumor microenvironment, and subsequently metastasize to secondary sites.
  Glioblastoma: A Nanotechnology Approach for Glioblastoma Targeted Therapy
  Research Group: Medical Engineering
  Dr F Sefat, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma is a type of brain cancer. It’s the most common type of malignant brain tumor among adults and it is usually very aggressive, which means it can grow fast and spread quickly.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Centrosome Amplification and Cancer
  Dr Y Ching
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centrosome, which is the microtubule-organising center (MTOC) in the cell, plays a critical role in determining the motility, polarity and division of cell.
