  Genomics, gene regulation and disease: how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease
  Assoc Prof J Hughes, Prof T Milne
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hughes group is interested in how mammalian genes are regulated and how their deregulation is linked with human disease. The ~22 thousand genes in the mammalian genome are present in the DNA of every cell but are used in complex patterns in different cell types and organs.
  Engineering tRNA neochromosomes in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  Using canine models of obesity to discover the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity.
  Dr E Raffan, Dr D Sargan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in discovering the mechanisms by which genes influence obesity. The dog is an excellent model organism for human comparative analyses.
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Control of tissue growth and cancer by the Hippo pathway
  Dr K. Harvey, Dr C Poon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  Targeting addiction to a breast cancer metastasis survival pathway by inhibition of RAN GTPase
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr S Shnyder, Prof M El-Tanani, Dr S Betmouni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic cancer is a major global health burden. Each year, eleven million new cases of cancer are diagnosed worldwide, including 5 million cases in industrialized countries.
  Seeking critical branch points in bacterial evolution with comparative genomics
  Prof N Saunders, Mr A Khan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a bioinformatics and comparative genomics-focussed project, seeking to identify the basis of speciation and sub-speciation of bacterial species accounting for the development of individual and independent lineages.
  Defining diets to treat inborn errors of metabolism
  Dr T Johnson, Dr M Piper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD scholarships are available for both Australian and international students through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
  Transcriptional responses to cellular stress
  Dr PG Grzechnik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Position for a PhD student is available in the group of Dr Pawel Grzechnik at the University of Birmingham. The aim of the project is to understand how eukaryotic cells remodel RNA biology in order to survive stress generated by pathological conditions and external stressors.
