Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas

  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
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. Read more

How do viral capsids subvert host defences and deliver viral genomes into the host cell nucleus?

Seeking a curious PhD student to join our interdisciplinary Structural Virology and Molecular. Machines group at the EMBL Australia Node in Single Molecule Science (SMS) at UNSW Sydney. Read more

Novel non-coding RNAs in regulating cancer epigenome

This opportunity will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found and so early applications are encouraged. Cancer-associated changes in gene expression and genome stability are often attributed to variations in DNA methylation. Read more

Understanding coordination of DNA replication initiation in the African trypanosome

DNA replication is a central cellular reaction, necessary for genome transmission and the propagation of life. To date, structural and mechanistic studies on DNA replication have focused mainly on a small number of eukaryotes, revealing conserved machinery and reactions. Read more

Investigating the cell biology of Neoparamoeba perurans, a causative agent of Amoebic Gill Disease, and its endosymbiont kinetoplastid, Perkinsela.

Amoebic gill disease (AGD), caused by the opportunistic amoebozoan parasite Neoparamoeba perurans, is a major disease in salmonid aquaculture [1-3] and there is an urgent need to mitigate the impact parasitic infections have on both fish welfare and sustainable growth in the sector. Read more

Investigating the role of the microenvironment in paediatric and adult acute myeloid leukaemia

The incidence of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) increases with age, and in childhood accounts for 20% of all leukaemia. The current overall survival rate in children is only 60-70%, and thereafter falls progressively with age to 5-15% in the elderly. Read more

Using computational biology and transcriptional data to identify signaling that contributes to cancer progression

  Research Group: The Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research
Our group is looking to recruit a PhD candidate, with experience of working with molecular datasets, with an interest in performing translational bioinformatics analyses to understand the nuanced and complex interactions between cancer cells and their microenvironment for major emerging clinical tumour subtypes. .
