Two open post doctoral positions in Australia

Two open post doctoral positions in Australia’s lovely capital!
Are you an ambiguous researcher, got your PhD and always wanted to work in Australia? We might have the job for you! We are looking for two new post docs (one in virology and one in immunology) for two exciting newly funded projects.
 
Virology (Australian National University, John Curtin School of Medical Research):
Classification: Academic Level A / B
Salary package: Level A $68,307 – $86,646 / Level B $94,287 – $107,381 per annum plus 17% Superannuation
Terms: Fixed term, 3 year contract, full-time

  • An exciting new project to understand herpes simplex virus latency
  • Opportunity to mentor students and be mentored towards independence
  • Broad methodological approaches including in vivo models, genome editing and transcriptional analyses.

Position overview
The Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Fellow will work on a newly funded project in the laboratory of Prof. David Tscharke at the John Curtin School of medical Research. The project combines molecular virology, sophisticated in vivo models and transcriptional profiling (RNAseq) to explore the role of viral gene expression during herpes simplex virus latency. This work is supported by two recent publications in PLoS Pathogens and also involves a collaboration to further extend the study to include human cells and samples.
If you hold a PhD in virology or a related biomedical discipline, have evidence of your enthusiasm and productivity, and have experience with some or all of the following:

  • Molecular biology and especially making recombinant viruses
  • In vivo models of infection and immunity
  • Analysis of RNAseq data

We would welcome an application from you.

Type of Appointment: Fixed Term, Two (2) years with a possibility of extension

  • An exciting translational project in Multiple Sclerosis related research
  • Opportunity to mentor students and be mentored towards independence
  • Broad methodological approaches from basic molecular biology over in vitro and in vivo models to work on patient samples.

Position overview
The Postdoctoral Fellow / Research Fellow will work on a newly funded and highly translational project in the laboratory of Dr Anne Bruestle at the John Curtin School of medical Research. The project will include basic immunological work in vitro and in vivo models as well as genetic and cellular analysis of human blood samples retrieved form a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patient cohort.
If you hold a PhD in immunology or a related biomedical discipline, have evidence of your enthusiasm and productivity as well as experience with some or all of the following:

  • MS related research
  • T cell and / or Neutrophil related assays
  • Tissue culture
  • Basic molecular biological methods
  • Flow cytometry
  • In vivo models of immunity
  • Human blood handling

We would welcome an application from you.
