  RNA metabolism in response to cellular stress
  Dr P Grzechnik, Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to understand roles for mRNA processing during the stress response in eukaryotic cells. Exposure to acute stress reduces cell viability or fitness and therefore immediate adaption is crucial for cell survival.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optimisation of heteromeric protein complex formation via co-ordinated mRNA localisation
  Prof M Ashe, Dr M Pool, Prof C M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RNA granules play key roles in cells controlling many aspects of mRNA fate. For instance, in response to stress the relocalisation of mRNAs to mRNA processing bodies (P-bodies) and stress granules facilitates the degradation or storage of unwanted or valuable mRNAs, respectively.
  Clinical and molecular correlates of response to first line treatment in oral lichen planus
  Dr K Hijazi, Prof J Gibson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oral lichen planus is a chronic disease of the lining of the mouth that causes pain and increases the risk of oral cancer. The negative impact of oral lichen planus on quality of life has been proven.
  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  Resistance isn’t futile: Dissecting adaptation and antimicrobial resistance in pathogenic fungi
  Dr D Childers, Prof C Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What will you investigate?. We have only four major classes of antifungals to treat life-threatening fungal infections, which even with treatment will claim over 1 million lives this year.
  Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
  Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
  Modelling memristive artificial neurons
  Prof S Saveliev, Dr P Borisov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Does the brain operate as a computer? In short the answer is no, but why? We use logic when thinking and coming to a decision by linking events in a causal relationship.
  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.
  Mini Centre for Doctoral Training: Overcoming drug-resistant microbial infection – Targeting the power of Molecular Machines
  Dr E Main, Prof RW Pickersgill, Dr V Darbari, Dr A Kang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The newly formed “Centre for Structural Medicine” (joint between the Schools of Biological and Chemical Sciences and Medicine and Dentistry) is seeking PhD applicants for their fully funded mini Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) to start in September 2020.
