PHD SCHOLARSHIP (2 POSITIONS)

University of Technology

Deadline: Autumn 2018 start would be 20th December 2017, and for Spring commencement would be 25th April 2018.

Location: Sydney

 

 

Two scholarships are open to applicants wishing to undertake their PhD, in the area of microbial cell shape and structural dynamics, in the ithree institute, UTS Faculty of Science. The ithree institute focuses on discovery and applied research to build an understanding of how microbes grow, live, adapt and survive. ithree comprises a team of excellent professional and trainee scientists, a PhD program and track record that promote the future success of graduates, and a wide range of state-of-the-art research equipment for modern molecular life sciences research (https://www.uts.edu.au/research-and-teaching/our-research/ithree-institute).
Successful candidates will be awarded a 3-year scholarship valued at $26,682 (2017 rate) per annum to assist with general living costs. This scholarship is available for students starting a PhD in 2018.
Title: Cytoskeletal protein function in the control of archaeal cell shape and division.

Supervisor: ARC Future Fellow and Associate Professor Iain Duggin (https://www.uts.edu.au/staff/iain.duggin)

Project Description:

Our team seeks to gain a molecular understanding of microbial cell shape and structural responses to change and stress. We are leading the development of Haloferax volcanii as a powerful model microorganism for molecular cell biology, and for understanding cytoskeletal protein function and evolution. With this model, we have discovered the roles of two new families of cytoskeletal proteins from the tubulin-FtsZ superfamily in archaea (Duggin et al. 2015 Nature 519:362). These PhD projects aim to understand how these proteins function to control cell shape and division, by (1) building a “ground-up” understanding of their ability to remodel the cell envelope, and (2) discovering the function of novel proteins linked to the cytoskeleton. The projects will involve methodological innovation and development, and the utilization of cutting-edge technology, including recombinant DNA and molecular genetics, high-resolution fluorescence or electron microscopy, and protein structure and function studies.

Qualifications: 
• A 1st Class Honours or Masters research degree, or equivalent, in Molecular Biology/Genetics, Structural Biology, Microbiology, or related area.
Desirable attributes and skills:
• Laboratory research experience in molecular biology and microbiology, particularly application of recombinant DNA technology in microorganisms, and/or protein science.
• Strong interest and motivation to pursue research in discovery/fundamental science, evolution, microbial model organism development, and/or protein and structure and function.

Please send your CV, plus your academic record and half-page expression of interest to Iain Duggin (Iain.Duggin@uts.edu.au).
Applicants for the scholarship must also apply to be admitted to the PhD degree at UTS, as per the instructions at http://www.uts.edu.au/research-and-teaching/future-researchers/research-degrees-uts/applying-research-degree-and-scholarship

 

Deadline: Autumn 2018 start would be 20th December 2017, and for Spring commencement would be 25th April 2018.
