The successful candidate will have obtained a BSc(hons), BBioMedSci(hons) or MSc with high academic excellence. Knowledge of the following areas would be desirable: genetics/epigenetics, molecular biology and bioinformatics. However, consideration will be given to the potential of the student rather than just these mentioned skill sets. The prospective candidate needs to obtain a University of Otago PhD scholarship (it is competitive), for which the Principal Investigators of the project will provide support to the selected candidate. Please apply to Dr Chatterjee with your CV (including contact details of three references) and a single PDF containing the transcripts for academic qualifications.
