  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  Investigating the molecular basis of this adhesion and the development of tetraspanin-based reagents for preventing bacterial infections
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The tetraspanins are a diverse, conserved family of eukaryotic membrane proteins. Their principal feature is the ability to form dynamic multi-molecular assemblies in cell membranes known as tetraspanin enriched microdomains (TEM).
  Tetraspanin structure and function

  TRIB3 at the interface of metabolism and inflammation in adipose tissue
  Dr H Wilson, Prof E Kiss-Toth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity drives chronic inflammation and immune activation. This results in dysregulated metabolism, insulin resistance linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
  Bacterial-derived magnetosomes as nanocarriers for cancer-killing oncolytic viruses.
  Dr M Muthana, Dr F Howard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysfunctional cellular processes that are the markers of neoplasms provide the ideal environment for viral infection including sustained proliferation and resistance to cell death.
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
  The study of bio-molecular interactions for the development of novel biological adhesives
  Prof R Luxton, Prof J Kiely
Application Deadline: 6 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from ambitious, self-motivated and enthusiastic candidates, with a background in biochemistry, protein chemistry or bio-interactions to work on a fully funded PhD studentship.
  Using organoid models to better understand liver immunology
  Prof G Ahlenstiel, Dr S read
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are currently being accepted for a 3 year PhD project in the immunology of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) at Western Sydney University Blacktown and the Westmead Institute for Medical Research.
