PhD position is available for a highly motivated trainee in the field of Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics at Neurotranscriptomics Laboratory within the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney.
“Our research focuses on understanding how phenotypic complexity can arise during evolution, as well as how post-transcriptional regulation control neuronal function. Our work focuses on the role of alternative splicing, and other post-transcriptional mechanisms, in expanding gene and protein function. We are a multi-disciplinary lab and candidates will have opportunities to learn both wet and dry skills (depending on interest and experience).”
The candidate should have experience in computational biology or bioinformatics. We are particularly interested in a candidate with a biological background. Expertise in analyzing RNA-seq, nanopore, scRNA-seq, CLiP-seq or ATAC-seq would be a bonus. International candidates with publication/s and/or a Master’s degree are encouraged to apply.
An English proficiency test is required (except students from the UK, USA, Canada). Candidates with Master’s degrees are encouraged to apply.
