  RNA Methylation in normal and malignant blood development
  Dr L. Kats
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As is the case with DNA and histones, RNA can also be modified and indeed more than 100 chemical groups that decorate all four canonical RNA nucleotides have been described.
  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.
  Therapy-induced senescence and stemness in ovarian cancer
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr K Chan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellular senescence is a stress response characterized by a robust cell cycle arrest and is a brake for malignant transformation.
  Watching the Hippo pathway in real time in growing organs
  Dr K. Harvey
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.
  Genomic determinants of long-term survival in ovarian cancer
  Research Group: Cancer Genetics & Genomics Laboratory
  Prof D. Bowtell, Dr D Garsed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer is an aggressive disease in which only ~30% of women survive 5 years or more. Despite a poor prognosis, a subset of patients are highly responsive to chemotherapy, and some become long-term survivors (>10 years survival).
  The role of oesophageal submucosal glands in epithelial homeostasis and the development of Barrett’s oesophagus
  Research Group: Cancer Biology & Surgical Oncology Laboratory
  Prof W. Phillips, Dr N. Clemons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrett’s oesophagus, the premalignant precursor of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, is a metaplastic condition where the normal stratified squamous epithelium that lines the oesophagus is replaced by an intestinal-like columnar epithelium.
  Transcriptional heterogeneity and resistance to therapy in prostate cancer
  Dr D. Goode
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is a standard treatment for prostate cancer that works well in many cases but rapidly fails in others.
  Nutritional Physiology in Drosophila - understanding the role of nutrients in disease, lifelong health and ageing
  Dr M Piper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Student Position. Nutritional Physiology in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia. A PhD position is available under the supervision of Dr Matthew Piper at Monash University (http://piperlab.org/) (http://tiny.cc/bd867y), School of Biological Sciences, in Melbourne, Australia.
  Experimental evolution of model microbiomes
  Dr M McDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One fully funded PhD position is available in the research group of Dr. Mike McDonald to undertake research at the interface of experimental evolution and microbiome ecology.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
