THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY
RESEARCH SCHOOL OF BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES
Applications are invited from Australian citizens or permanent residents
for two PhD scholarships tenable in the Molecular and Population
Genetics Group, Research School of Biological Sciences. Applicants
should hold a BSc honours degree at upper second or first class level.
One scholarship is for research in Dr Clark-Walker's laboratory studying
the molecular genetics of yeast in relation to energy transducing
mechanisms in mitochondria. The other is for research in Professor
Gibson's laboratory to either work on evolutionary aspects of the
regulation of gene expression in Drosophila, with particular reference
to the gene encoding glycerophosphate dehydrogenase, or on a project
with Dr. A. Lohe using the transformation vector Mariner to identify
novel genes involved in Drosophila development. Both laboratories have
excellent facilities. Successful applicants will be given the
opportunity after their second year to present their results at an
appropriate international congress. The PhD scholarship is for three
years with a stipend of $15,364pa in 1996.
