CURRENT POSITIONS AVAILABLE:
PhD Scholoarship: Proteomic Analysis of Moles
Funding Body: University of Sydney
Type: Postgraduate Research
A common mole (nevus) is a pigmented lesion on the skin that develops when pigment cells (melanocytes and/or nevocytes) accumulate in clusters. Common moles could be a marker for melanoma, as people with more than 50 common moles have an increased risk of developing melanoma. In this project we plan to use state of the art proteomics techniques to study nevi and melanomas. Understanding the difference in protein expression between them may lead to discovering possible targets for early diagnosis and therapy.
Applicants should have an Honours or Masters degree. Applicants must be Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents.
Amount awarded: The stipend is valued at $24,653 per annum and may be renewed for up to three years, subject to satisfactory progress.
