PhD Scholarship Opportunity in Nutrient Signalling & Metabolism plus $5K top-up

Job No.: 574291

Faculty: Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences

Location: Clayton campus

Supervisor: Adam Rose, Metabolism, Diabetes and Obesity Program, Biochemistry
and Molecular Biology, Monash University.

Duration: 3 years

Remuneration: A $5000 per annum top-up supplement will be provided to RTP stipend holders and/or to successful
applicants for a Biomedicine Graduate Program Scholarship of ~$27,353.00 p.a. (tax free, indexed

negotiable.

The Opportunity

The Nutrient Metabolism and Signalling Laboratory
(http://www.med.monash.edu.au/biochem/labs/rose.html) is seeking a talented and enthusiastic
student to join our dynamic international team to conduct research on novel signalling pathways in
how metabolic signalling pathways are dysregulated in - and causally related to - the development of
metabolic diseases such as diabetes. The project will take advantage of state-of- the-art cell culture
(i.e. Crispr-Cas9 screens), animal models (e.g. AAV-mediated transduction, mouse genetics), and
metabolic profiling (e.g. metabolic fluxomics) methods. Specific research projects can be accessed
here: https://supervisorconnect.med.monash.edu/

Candidate Requirements

Exceptional graduate students with a high level (H1) Honours degree (or equivalent) in Biochemistry,
Molecular/Cell Biology or a related discipline are encouraged to apply. The scholarship is open to

Australian Postgraduate award.
