Founded in 2001, Diversity Arrays Technology Pty Ltd (DArT) is internationally recognised for its pioneering work in affordable genome profiling in the agricultural and ecological sectors.
Who are DArT looking for?
With locations both at ANU and the University of Canberra, DArT is looking for PhD students to undertake a fully-funded internship to help them develop new and exciting products and services in DArT's areas of operation.
DArT are particularly interested in talking to students with backgrounds in:
Ecological & Agricultural Research
General Data Analysis & Modelling
Data mining/machine learning and AI experience would be of particular interest.
Most of the internship projects would involve some programming and statistical skills so R and/or python skills would be preferred but are not essential.
Successful candidates will be awarded an internship stipend of $20K for a 6 month, full-time project with DArT.
These internship opportunities are available to ANU PhD students who have completed at least one year (full-time) of candidature and have submitted their Thesis Proposal Review and have had it approved prior to commencing the internship.
Shortlisted candidates will be required to attend a short interview with DArT. Successful candidates will require written approval from their supervisor/s.
For candidature and internship funding information, please contact email@example.com.
DArT Pty Ltd is a private company based in Canberra that delivers high throughput genotyping in any organism without the need for prior sequence information. The original platfrom for this used solid state arrays and DNA hybridisation. The methodology has been adapted to take advantage of the very high data generation capacity of next generation sequencing platforms.
More than just a commercial operation, DArT also has a clear humanitarian mission - to help build food security, capacity and diversity in regions and communities with limited resources - especially in Africa and South-East Asia.
Their goals are met through:
Customer-focused, innovative and high quality laboratory services for DNA sequencing - supporting farmers, breeders, scientists and ecologists
Strong leadership in genomic data production - with world-leading expertise in linking genomic data with disease (biomedicine) and performance (agriculture and ecology)
Our powerful data management platform, KDDart, and its successor, OneDArT, along with a range of accompanying software tools, to enable integration of genetic data with field, phenotypic and environmental data
Strong machine learning and data mining capabilities
