Project Description An exciting opportunity is available at the Viral Immunology Systems Program (VISP) at the Kirby Institute at the University of New South Wales, Sydney Australia.
A PhD scholarship is available to undertake research on T cell responses in human infections using systems biology and immune-virology approaches.
The specific aim of this project is to apply single cell techniques to identify new gene and surface protein signatures of T cell sub-populations associated with successful establishment of long-term immunological protection.
Applications are invited from talented students from quantitative disciplines with background in either Physics, Statistics Mathematics, or computationally based disciplines: computer science, bioinformatics.

The scholarship is supported by the UNSW Scientia Fellowship Program, which includes a PhD stipend of AU $40,000 per annum, as well as tuition fees. The scholarship is up to 4 years.
Good programming skill in at least one language (e.g., R, Perl, C++ or Java) is essential. Previous experience in analysis of next generation sequencing data is highly desirable. Meet the minimum PhD entry requirements of UNSW Australia Demonstrate active research activity with evidence of scientific publications.
