We are seeking a PhD student at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), in collaboration with the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute. This is a fully funded project to apply leading-edge bioinformatics analysis methods to decipher the interactions of the obligate intracellular human pathogen, Chlamydia trachomatis, with its host cell.
The successful applicant will work with Associate Professor Garry Myers (UTS) and Dr Alicia Oshlack (MCRI) to apply or develop statistical and computational bioinformatic methods for analyzing and integrating transcriptomic, proteomic and epigenetic data generated by a variety of cutting-edge methodologies, including host/pathogen RNA-Seq, single-infected-cell RNA-Seq, BS-Seq, mass spectrometry and ChIP-Seq.
$25,849 per annum (2015 rate, indexed; Australian income-tax free) over three years.
