You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work.

The Opportunity

The Research Fellow is expected to lead a project to unravel the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie immune dysregulation in patients with antibody deficiency. The project is focused on human B-cell activation and maturation and involves cellular and molecular studies using human blood and tissue, and advanced techniques including >10-color flow cytometry, AMNIS ImageStream imaging flow cytometry, Ig gene cloning and sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 mediated mutagenesis. 

In this role you will be responsible for teaching honours students within the Translational Immunology project theme and be expected to develop new experimental protocols and present research data at professional seminars as required.

To be successful you will be involved in:

  • the conduct of research under limited supervision either as a member of a team or, where appropriate, independently and the production or contribution to the production of conference and seminar papers and publications from that research
  • involvement in professional activities including, subject to availability of funds, attendance at conferences and seminars in the field of expertise
  • experimental design and operation of advanced laboratory and technical equipment or conduct of advanced research procedures.

If you have a PhD in an appropriate discipline or equivalent, with a competitive track record in a post-doctoral fellowship scheme, in particular, first or senior author on at least one publication (preferably in a journal with an IF>10), you are encouraged to apply.

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