The Opportunity

Prof. Jamie Rossjohn FAA FAHMS FLSW FMedSci, ARC Australian Laureate Fellow & Head, Infection and Immunity Program, Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, seeks talented postdoctoral researchers to join his research group to work in the area of protective and aberrant T cell immunity, at Monash University, Clayton campus, Melbourne, Australia.

The Rossjohn laboratory has pioneered the areas of lipid- and metabolite- based antigen recognition and fundamentally advanced the understanding of T cell development and different facets of T cell mediated immunity including MHC restriction, self-tolerance, alloreactivity, autoimmunity, and aberrant and protective T cell responses.

The Research Fellow will be expected to build upon current findings and ongoing research aimed at understanding the molecular interactions and mechanisms that shape T cell responses directed against viral infections (e.g. HIV, CMV, EBV). The applicants should be sufficiently self-motivated to pioneer new areas of immune recognition. Candidates with a promising track record in the relevant areas and a proven publication record in international journals are encouraged to apply.

Appointment will be made at a level appropriate to the successful applicant’s qualifications, experience and in accordance with classification standards for each level.
