Bioinformatics PhD studentship available in New Zealand

Genomics, Epigenomics, and Diseases

The importance of transcriptional control has been explored in a burgeoning line of research over several decades; nevertheless, we are still far from having a complete picture of the regulatory mechanisms of genes and non-coding RNAs, and their influences on different phenotypes and disease states of a cell. Recent shifts towards large-scale analyses of transcriptional regulation on a sequence and epigenetic level are at the forefront of research, mainly due to sequencing technology advancements and a deeper understanding of the fundamental regulatory processes involved.

Arriving at a better understanding of the influence of specific parts of the overall regulatory machinery on disease states is a high priority of the group’s research agenda.

We are seeking an enthusiastic student to join the group as a PhD student. Applicants must have a BSc(Hons) or MSc degree in a relevant discipline and a willingness to learn and apply new techniques and work in a team. Both local and international students are encouraged to apply.

The studentship covers all university fees and an annual tax-exempt stipend of NZ$22,000 for three years.

Sebastian Schmeier recently joined Massey University and started his own research group in Auckland, New Zealand, a city regularly ranked one of the most livable in the world. This is your chance to experience the amazing Auckland lifestyle and the excitement of joining a young new science team, while staying connected to world class scientific networks.

To apply for the post, please send a cover letter stating your interest in the position and why you think you would be a good candidate, a Curriculum Vitae, a copy of your academic transcript, a sample of your written scientific work, and the names of three referees. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
