The Warr Lab has moved
Coral has recently accepted the position of Head of Biomedical Sciences at University of Tasmania.

Fully-funded PhD positions are available for domestic and international students. At present we are particularly keen to recruit students for projects studying cell signalling during neuropeptide regulation of growth in Drosophila. But we can develop projects to suit your interests in any of our main research areas.

To be considered applicants must have a distinction or first-class masters (or honours) by research and English language competence. Applicants must then secure University of Tasmania scholarship support, for which there are several options available. Contact us to find out more. 

Honours Projects are available in the Warr lab. Contact us to find out more.
