Exploring the role of chromatin associated RNAs and trans splicing in learning and memory

This Earmarked Scholarship project is aligned with a recently awarded Category 1 research grant. It offers you the opportunity to work with leading researchers and contribute to large projects of national significance.

Supervisor – Associate Professor Timothy Bredyt.bredy@uq.edu.au

This project will employ state of the art genomics, molecular and behavioural methods to elucidate the causal relationship between a novel class of alternatively spliced RNA and brain function.

Preferred educational background

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis taking into account the applicant’s previous academic record, publication record, honours and awards, and employment history.

A working knowledge of Molecular Biology would be of benefit to someone working on this project.

The applicant will demonstrate academic achievement in the field(s) of Molecular Biology and/or Neuroscience and the potential for scholastic success.

A background or knowledge of Genomics and RNA biology is highly desirable.

*The successful candidate must commence by Research Quarter 1, 2022. You should apply at least 3 months prior to the research quarter commencement date. International applicants may need to apply much earlier for visa reasons.
