The Adelaide Proteomics Centre offers opportunities for students to undertake research projects at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Undergraduate students interested in learning state-of-the-art proteomic techniques, such as multidimensional protein purification or mass spectrometry, can apply either for a lab placement or for an honour's project.
Additionally, we are currently seeking PhD applicants. The details of their respective research projects are described below. For further details, please contact Associate Professor Peter Hoffmann.

The proposed project will involve theory, design and application of MALDI imaging mass spectrometry (IMS) to molecular grading of ovarian epithelial tumours. The Adelaide Proteomics Centre is the national NCRIS facility for MALDI IMS and the only group in Australia with a publication record using this technology.
The Centre is equipped with the latest mass spectrometry instrumentation and has close collaborations with Bruker Daltonics (Mass Spectrometry instrument vendor) to push the boundaries of this technology.
Project aims will be as follows:
We are looking for a self motivated student with a degree in Biochemistry or Chemistry and depending on quality of applicants we would be able to pay a $3,000/year top up on PhD scholarships.
