  Curing Genetic Muscle diseases
  Dr J Ochala
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Congenital myopathies are a group of genetic muscle diseases with unclear mechanisms and no efficient treatment.
  Characterization of cyclin-dependent kinase 12 (CDK12) substrates and their roles in regulation of transcription and tumorigenesis
  Dr D Blažek, Prof Z Zdrahal
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cdk12 is transcriptional cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) found mutated in various cancers. In previous studies we found that Cdk12 maintains genome stability via optimal transcription of key homologous recombination repair pathway genes including BRCA1.
  Integrative structural biology of 3’UTRs
  Dr P J Lukavsky, Dr B Tichý, Prof Z Zdrahal
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The non-coding part of the genome vastly increased from worm to humans while the number of protein-coding genes remained constant.
  PhD Studentship in Cell and Molecular Biosciences – Circadian clocking of gene expression and its application in synthetic biology
  Dr Y Yuzenkova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 23 September 2019 for 3.5 years. Application closing date. Applications will be considered until a suitable candidate is found.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  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.
  Biomedical research in a simple non-animal model
  Prof R S B Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in biomedical neuroscience generally employs mammalian tissue culture experiments to look at disease-related neuronal cell function.
  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.
  Investigating the Drosophila DF31 protein to gain insight into the mechanisms and chromatin maintenance in animal cells
  Dr S Cotterill, Dr A Nohturfft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Drosophila DF31 protein is an abundant ribonucleoprotein that localises to euchromatic regions and is involved in maintaining chromosome structure.
