Title PhD in Molecular Parasitology Ticks and Tick-Borne Disease
Salary A stipend of ~$30K per annum is available to Australian and New Zealand students in addition to some relocation expenses.
Location Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia
Job Information

Are you interested in discovering and characterising pathogens using cutting-edge molecular techniques?  Would you like to know more about vector-borne diseases and learn advanced next generation sequencing and bioinformatics in a vibrant research group at Murdoch University?  We are studying potentially pathogenic microorganisms in ticks that have been collected Australia-wide from people and animals, and from the environment.  The research spans microscope-based parasitological techniques through to advanced molecular biology using the ion semiconductor (Ion Torrent) platform for deep sequencing and metagenomics of bacterial and protozoal organisms.  Successful applicants will be involved in fieldwork and in the lab. We seek an enthusiastic PhD student to be involved with every aspect of this highly relevant and exciting research that is fully-funded by an Australian Research Council Linkage Grant.

Please contact Associate Professor Peter Irwin, Vector- and Water-borne Pathogen Research Group, School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, Murdoch University, South Street, MURDOCH, WA 6150, or email: P.Irwin@murdoch.edu.au, with your CV if you would like to obtain more information.



Title PhD scholarship available at Murdoch University
Salary The stipend is $30,000 pa, tax-free.
Location Murdoch University, Perth
Job Information

A PhD scholarship is available for an ARC Linkage project entitled “Innovative approaches to understanding and limiting the public health risks of Cryptosporidium and Giardia in animals in Australian catchments”.

Project Background: Cryptosporidium and Giardia are the major public health concern of water utilities worldwide and are responsible for disease in a wide range of hosts including humans. Of the waterborne protozoan parasitic outbreaks that have been reported worldwide between 2004 and 2010, Cryptosporidium and Giardia were responsible for 95.5% of outbreaks. Cryptosporidium can be fatal in the immunocompromised and treatment failures are common. Both parasites are environmentally stable stage and are able to survive and penetrate routine wastewater treatment and are resistant to inactivation by commonly used drinking water disinfectants including chlorine. This proposal will target a key knowledge gap; the lack of quantitative data on human infectious species. Cryptosporidium and Giardia in animals and human sewage in catchments across Australia will be analysed using next generation sequencing and quantitative PCR. Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) based on this data will be used to develop improved catchment management and risk mitigation strategies.

We are looking for a hard-working motivated student to work with a team with extensive experience and expertise in this area.

The studentship is available from late 2013/early 2014 for a duration of three years. The stipend is $30,000 pa, tax-free. The scholarship is open to Australian and New Zealand citizens and permanent residents. The successful applicant will have an honours degree, upper IIA minimum, or research masters in a relevant discipline.

 

For more information contact: Prof. Una Ryan, School of Veterinary and Life Sciences on (08) 9360 2482 or email an application, including a full CV and an introductory letter describing any relevant experiences that would make you a suitable candidate, together with contact details for two referees to Una Ryan at: Una.Ryan@murdoch.edu.au
