  Phytochemistry of hybrid Anigozanthos (kangaroo paw) flowers
  Dr G Flematti
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Researchers at Kings Park and Botanic Garden in Perth WA have been breeding new varieties of native plants that exhibit more desirable characteristics such as different colouring, extended flowering season and more compact forms.
  Memory consolidation and forgetting in natural and artificial neural circuits
  Dr A Lin, Prof E Vasilaki
Application Deadline: 31 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How should intelligent systems store learned information? Biological brains have evolved to retain important information as consolidated memories, while forgetting unimportant or obsolete memories.
  Expanding the Genetic Code of a Synthetic Yeast
  Prof P Cai, Dr A Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project aims to develop an efficient yeast-based protein expression platform with an expanded genetic code. The standard genetic code of natural organisms comprises 20 canonical amino acids.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  The genetics/genomics of adaptive evolutionary change
  Dr N Nadeau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The basic process of evolution by natural selection involves genetic changes that confer an advantage in survival or reproduction.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how is diapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr T Ings, Dr P Celis
Applications accepted all year round

  PhD Cancer Genetics - Examining how telomere dysfunction drives the evolution of the cancer genome
  Prof D Baird, Dr K Cleal
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are structures that cap the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, preventing the recognition and repair of the natural chromosomal terminus by the DNA damage response (DDR) apparatus.

  Aerobiology and the Arctic - microbial colonization of remote polar environments.(Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE3)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rate of dispersal to an ecosystem can significantly influence ecosystem dynamics. Aerial transport has also been identified as an important source of biological input to remote locations.
  Microorganisms entombed in Polar ice – assessing the potential emergence of new diseases (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE1)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The melting Polar Ice caps and receding glaciers worldwide are resulting in the emergence of microorganisms entombed in the ice for considerable periods of time.
