PhD Scholarship Genomic Data Analytics at Monash University

Monash University is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in computational biology. This position is closed on May 10, 2019.

This is a unique opportunity to undertake a PhD in the Public Health Genomics program at Monash University, with direct access to one of the highest quality cohorts in Australia, the ASPirin in Reducing Events in the Elderly (ASPREE) study.

ASPREE have generated genomic data on over 15,000 Australians, now amongst the most comprehensive genomic data ever produced for an Australian cohort (13,500 exomes, 3000 whole genomes, 15,000 SNP genotyping). The genomic data is accompanied by an unprecedented level of longitudinal phenotype, clinical and lifestyle information collected over 5+ years, to the highest standards of a clinical trial.

We seek talented PhD students to undertake data-driven studies with ASPREE, to begin to build their research careers around this important cohort study. Various projects are available making use of genomic + phenotypic data.

We seek candidates with backgrounds in human genetics, computational biology, statistical genetics, genetic epidemiology and/or clinical DNA sequencing analysis, with a desire for innovative analysis of large datasets. Candidates need to have a baseline knowledge of human genetics and be proficient with command line and R.
