The Opportunity

A Level A research-only academic is expected to contribute towards the research effort of the university and to develop her/his research expertise through the pursuit of defined projects relevant to the particular field of research.

We are currently seeking two junior post-doctoral (or equivalent) scientists to commence in the Chemokine-Receptor Interaction Laboratory, each playing a lead role in a project related to the regulation of chemokine function in inflammation.

One position focuses on elucidating novel signalling pathways activated by chemokines. Suitable applicants will have very strong foundations in cellular biochemistry, pharmacology or a closely related field, including skills in cell culture, cell-based assays, molecular biology, Western blotting and related methods. Experience in proteomics will be a distinct advantage.

The second position focuses on functional and structural characterisation of novel chemokine-binding proteins from tick species. Suitable applicants will have very strong foundations in protein expression and purification, structural biology and biophysical characterisation of proteins. Experience in computational structural modelling and bioinformatics will be significant advantages. 

Both successful applicants will also be involved in other ongoing projects. The selected applicants will be part of a team of post-doctoral researchers and students and be will expected to work collegially with the team and to assist in the supervision of more junior members, including summer, undergraduate and PhD students. They will be responsible for paper writing, regular presentations and assistance with grant proposal preparation.

For both positions, the successful applicants are expected to have strong potential to develop into leaders of independent research programs.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
