We are seeking candidates to join the PhD program of the John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) at the ANU. Successful candidates will join the new Talo Computational Talent Accelerator of the JCSMR to apply knowledge and research skills from computer science to address biomedical problems. We offer PhD scholarships for intellectually curious and high-performing students with a thirst for cross-disciplinary learning and impact in health and biology. Over a four-year program, PhD scholars will engage in computational biology research at the JCSMR. The program will include focused training on Biology, Genomics, and Biological Data Analysis, as well as outreach activities.
Applicants must be eligible for the PhD program at the John Curtin School of Medical Research. For more details, visit programsandcourses.anu.edu.au/2021/program/9710XPHD Candidates must demonstrate sufficient background in computer science, computational biology, and/or engineering, and a keen interest in developing new computer science tools and software applications that directly address biological or biomedical problems. Candidates with industry backgrounds are encouraged. PhD projects will focus on specific biological questions and computational areas. The PhD period will include the possibility of a six-month placement in industry or in a different academic lab. A list of potential PhD projects is available here: jcsmr.anu.edu.au/study/talo-computational-biology-talent-acceler More information about the research happening at JCSMR can be found here: jcsmr.anu.edu.au/ We recommend prospective candidates to contact first potential supervisors to prepare the application. Applications for International candidates (non-Australians) close on the 31st of August, applications for Australians close on the 31st of October. Benefits: A PhD stipend of 40,000 AUD per year in a top biomedical research school with the opportunity to work at the forefront of computational biology.
