  Evolution of vertebrate blood vessels
  Dr T Takahashi, Dr S Herbert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The blood vessels are the core elements of the circulatory system of animals, and their malfunction is related to most human diseases including cancer and heart attacks.
  Epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the maternal to zygotic transition of vertebrate embryos
  Dr M Soller, Prof F Mueller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round

he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
  The diversity of transmission pathways for Ross River virus
  Dr F Frentiu, Prof G Devine
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ross River virus (RRV) is a single-stranded RNA virus belonging to the Alphavirus genus. It causes debilitating arthritogenic disease and accounts for the highest number of arbovirus disease notifications in Australia (ca.
  Interneuron Development in the Zebrafish Spinal Cord

The Lewis Lab moved to Syracuse University from Cambridge University in the UK in 2010.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Dr DN Newell, Prof H McCallum
Application Deadline: 23 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (endangered Fleay’s barred frogs and tadpoles) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Role of telomere attrition in cardiometabolic disease risk
  Dr J Buxton, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Common conditions such as Type 2 diabetes (T2D) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are complex disorders caused by a myriad of interacting genetic and lifestyle factors.
  Structural study of enterovirus replication in vivo
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses from the Enterovirus genus belong to the family Picornaviridae of human and vertebrate pathogens. Diseases caused by enteroviruses range from upper and lower respiratory tract infections to life-threatening encephalitis.
  Supra-molecular architecture of neurotransmitter receptor complexes
  Dr R Aricescu
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemical synapses are cellular connectors that define the organization and function of neuronal circuits and, as a result, the fundamental ability of the brain to acquire and store information.
  Role of the centrosome and cilia in development
  Dr C Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My research interest lies in the roles of centrioles and associated proteins, as parts of the centrosome and cilium, in early vertebrate development, using zebrafish embryos as a model system.
