We are looking for a highly motivated postgraduate student to undertake a Master’s degree project on pharmacogenetics. The project has two parts. First, we will test the use of different PCR additives to increase the efficiency of long-range PCRs. Changes to other PCR parameters will also be made alongside the addition of PCR additives. Then, we will determine whether the optimised parameters for ‘open’ PCR are reproducible when long PCR is performed in emulsion.
Preference will be given to applicants with a basic degree in science such as Biomedicine, Biotechnology, or any other related subject, with a minimum CGPA above 3.0 and decent English proficiency (MUET, IELTS, or TOEFL). The candidate needs to have a strong interest in genetics and biotechnology, and be passionate about research, self-motivated, and able to work independently.
Appointment period: Full time: 2 years (4 semesters); monthly stipends will be given.
Commencement date: Anytime now.
