Multiple PhD positions (Stem cells, Epigenetics, Gene regulation and Computational Biology) - Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University

Dr. Partha Pratim Das is currently seeking applicants for multiple PhD positions in the field of Stem cells, Epigenetics, Gene regulation and Computational Biology in the Laboratory of “Epigenetics and Gene regulation” within Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI), Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

BDI Monash University is one of the largest and most successful biomedical research institutes in Australia. The BDI brings together more than 100 teams in a highly interactive environment, with access to truly world-class infrastructures. For details, please look at- https://www.monash.edu/discovery-institute

Our laboratory research interest focuses on how transcription factors (TFs) and epigenetic regulators, along with small RNAs and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulate gene expression programs in ESCs, neural stem cells and differentiated cells under normal and pathological conditions, such as, cancers and neurodegenerative diseases. We use various experimental approaches including – Cell and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, CRISPRs, CRISPRs screen (using sgRNAs to target all the genes in the genome, epigenetic regulators and regulatory elements), ChIPs, ChIP-sequencing, RNA-seq, WGS, ATAC-seq, RRBS, ChIA-PET, 3C, 4C, Hi-C, proteomics, bioinformatics and computational biology. For research details, please see: http://www.med.monash.edu.au/anatomy/research/epigenetics-and-gene-regulation.html

Requirements for Molecular Biology students: A strong research background in molecular biology, biochemistry, stem cells and epigenetics are essential. Candidates should be highly motivated and be able to work both independently and in collaborative manner. They should have good communication, organizational, and writing skills.

Requirements for Computational Biology students: The candidates should have computer science, mathematics, statistics, system biology and bioinformatics related backgrounds. They should have excellent communication and writing skills, able to work independently and in teams. Experience working with commonly used bioinformatics tools, as well as on different types of NGS data- ChIP seq, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq would be plus. Candidates will be supervised jointly with my laboratory and Dr. Luca Pinello’s laboratory (http://pinellolab.org) at MGH, Harvard Medical School,Boston. They should expect to spend sometime at MHG during their PhD training at Dr. Pinello’s Lab.

If you are interested, please send a cover letter, CV and contact information for 3 references via email to me-Dr. Partha Pratim Das. PhD (ppdas@bloodgroup.tch.harvard.edu). Applicants must hold a Bachelor’s or equivalent degree with first-class Honours, Master of Science, or MPhil. Our laboratory will be commencing at BDI, Monash University from 1 March, 2017.

Notes: Australian and New Zealand domestic students can be recruited through BDI’s PhD program. International students encouraged applying for Monash-based scholarships support. PhD students will be fully funded during their study. For international students an English proficiency test is required. Our laboratory is committed to diversity and equality.

Postdoctoral position in cardiac cell systems biology

The Cell Structure and Mechanobiology group and the Systems Biology Laboratory at the University of Melbourne are looking for a highly motivated and qualified candidate to develop biophysically and structurally detailed computational models of calcium signaling in cardiomyocytes. Under the guidance of Prof Edmund Crampin and Dr. Vijay Rajagopal, the individual will work in an interdisciplinary team to develop mechanistic insights into the role of subcellular calcium dynamics in diseases such as cardiac hypertrophy and diabetic cardiomyopathy. 
Required Skills and Experience 
  • PhD in computational biology, mathematics, biomedical engineering or related fields.
  • Highly developed skills in computational modeling and/or systems biology
  • Good knowledge and skills in languages, such as R, Python, C++.
  • Evidence of publications in influential, high-impact journals.
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team.
Familiarity with one or more of the following would be a plus: finite element modelling, stochastic processes in ion-channel gating, cardiomyocyte physiology.

Application

Interested candidates are requested to send their current CV with a cover letter and a short statement of research interests to vijay.rajagopal@unimelb.edu.au.

 

Location

The University of Melbourne is situated at the heart of the medical precinct in Parkville, Melbourne, Australia. Come and take part in this vibrant environment of research and innovation.
