Advancing Epigenetics Towards Systems Biology

PhD position in Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics

BDI, Monash University, Melbourne


PhD position is available for highly motivated trainee in the led of Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics at “Epigenetics and Gene regulation Laboratory” 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. e BDI brings together more than 100 teams in a highly interactive environment, with access to truly world-class infrastruc- tures. Details here.
Our laboratory research interest focuses on- how epigenetic and epi-transcriptomic changes regulate gene expression programs in ES cells, neural stem cells and di erentiated cells under normal and pathological conditions, such as, can- cers and neurological disorders. We use various experimental approaches including - Cell and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, CRISPRs, CRISPRs screens, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, m6A RNA-seq, m5C RNA-seq, WGS, ATAC-seq, RRBS, Hi-C, proteomics and bioinformatics.
Research details here.


e candidates should have computer science, mathematics, statistics, system biology and bioinformatics related backgrounds. ey 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 di erent types of NGS data- ChIP seq, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq would be plus. Candidates with rst author/ co-author publications are encouraged to apply, it will be plus to obtain Monash Scholarships.
