  Super resolution imaging of DNA damage and repair - Interdisciplinary Single Molecule Biology PhD
  Dr D Whelan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. A fully funded La Trobe University PhD scholarship is available in the Whelan Single-Molecule Biophysics group, to be undertaken at the Bendigo campus within the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS).
  RVC PhD: Why are women more at risk of type 2 diabetes from statin use than men?
  Dr M Gage, Prof C Wheeler Jones
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of worldwide mortality. Females are less at risk of CVD compared to males before menopause.
  Adhesion of Tissues to Percutaneous Implants
  Dr M Roldo, Prof G Blunn, Dr G Tozzi
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded three-year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health and will be supervised by Dr Marta Roldo, Prof Gordon Blunn and Dr Gianluca Tozzi.
  Characterisation of the genotype and phenotype of epithelial cells invaded by the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis.
  Dr S Whawell, Dr G Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of the Gram negative anaerobe Porphyromonas gingivalis is consistently associated with the more severe forms of periodontal disease and its ability to invade host epithelial cells is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  Development of an in vitro model to dissect the mechanism of fungal persistence in the cystic fibrosis lung
  Prof P Bowyer, Dr M Bromley, Dr S Gago
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetically inherited disease in Caucasian populations. This disease is caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator gene (CFTR) which produces defective ion fluxes and calcium homeostasis in the epithelia.
  Investigating virus-host interactions in the killer yeast system (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr J-M Schwartz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi, like all living organisms, may be infected by viruses, obligate intracellular parasites that hijack the host cell machinery in order to replicate.
  Toxicity-induced phase separation of transcriptional regulators: mechanisms and cellular consequences
  Dr R Sawarkar
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have recently observed that proteotoxicity in human cells causes biomolecular condensation of critical transcriptional regulators leading to global transcriptional changes.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
