The International PhD program of the French national research project ‘ParaFrap’ is currently open for applications for 11 Ph.D. positions to be started in October 2016.
The Labex (Laboratory of Excellence) ParaFrap is a Health Sciences collaborative research program focusing on molecular and cellular Parasitology in its wider sense; it was initiated by 21 French leading groups in the field. It is funded by the Excellence Initiative of the French Ministry of Research and supports four major research fields in protozoan models such as Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Leishmania, Trypanosoma, Entamoeba and Theileria :
The ParaFrap International PhD program is an ambitious program offering competitive PhD grants to high-quality students/early stage scientists. The call is international, opening applications to foreign students. The early stage scientists will be joining research projects selected by an external scientific board and managed by a main supervisor and a co-supervisor from two distinct research groups of the LabEx. These core research projects will focus on the use of state-of-the-art post-genomic tools to enhance knowledge of the parasites’ biology and of their interactions with their hosts. Additional information about ParaFrap can be found on http://www.labex-parafrap.fr/en/.
Successful applicants will be enrolled in one of the 11 research groups who were awarded the PhD grants, distributed among diverse French Universities (see website). Each applicant will have to indicate 3 projects of interest. He/she should be enrolled in one of the three projects indicated, unless the selection committee sees a particular interest in modifying one of his/her options.
The deadline for submitting applications is on the 3rd April 2016.
Supervision of the PhD thesis work The PhD student will be supervised by his/her thesis supervisor and will also be assigned a personal tutor, who has to be from another institute and, in general, will be the main collaborator (‘co-PI’) in the project. A PhD thesis committee will interview the student at the end of the 1st and 2nd year and produce a report to the Doctoral School.
Duration: The PhD thesis contract is established for three years.
Studentship: The monthly gross salary will be according to French national rules approx. 1750 € (net salary approx. 1420 €). Selected candidates will receive private health insurance and social security entitlements.

The Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine (AITHM) is a newly established health research institute within James Cook University, Australia. AITHM’s focus is on research in tropical health and medicine across a wide range of disciplines.
An opportunity exists for a postdoctoral position in the immunology of infectious diseases, with an emphasis on malaria as a key indication and systems immunology as a platform. A specific interest is to explore the mechanisms underlying immune responsiveness and vaccine efficacy, using samples from humans experimentally infected with Plasmodium parasites in controlled human malaria infections, or naturally exposed to malaria in geographically distinct field sites, as well as rodent models of malaria. A second opportunity exists for a postdoctoral position with an emphasis on omic-based technologies and rational vaccine design. An underlying concept is that development of optimally efficacious interventions against chronic infectious diseases such as malaria will need to improve on nature, and this can be accomplished by mining large-scale omic datasets to identify molecules and mechanisms underlying protective immunity. It is anticipated that this research will have broad application to a wide range of infectious and chronic diseases, with important implications for vaccination.

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.
