If you are interested in joining our group, please email a statement on your research interests and your CV to email@example.com. We are part of the School of Biological Sciences at The University of Queensland, St Lucia campus, in Brisbane, where we have both a fly lab and aquaria in the Goddard Building, as well as using the zebrafish facilities elsewhere on campus. The University of Queensland offers competitive scholarships for both Australian citizens and permanent residents and international applicants. More information can be found on the UQ Graduate webpage. Students are welcome to develop projects connected to the main research programs in the lab. Work usually consists of animal wrangling (flies or fish) followed by extensive and intensive data analysis. Students are expected and supported to develop strong statistical skills during their time in the lab. Please visit the pages of our students to learn more about their current projects.
McGuigan lab research is funded by The Australian Research Council (ARC) and The University of Queensland. We welcome applications for Postdoctoral fellowships through competitive ARC or UQ fellowship schemes.
The group is always interested in hearing from people who are enthusiastic about our area of research and who would like to get involved as a student or researcher.
We have opportunities for:
– Honours students
– Master’s students
– PhD students
