CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellowship in Translational VectorologyCSIRO
The Opportunity Do you have a PhD in Bioinformatics or a related discipline? Work on cutting edge precision medicine research Join our Transformational Bioinformatics Team for this exciting postdoctoral role CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system. The Australian e-health research centre (AEHRC) is CSIRO’s digital health research unit delivering innovation to the health system.
It is the largest eHealth research group in Australia with more than 100 research scientists working with clinicians and industry to identify the clinical and/or health challenges. AEHRC is worldwide and unique in covering the full value chain from basic science through to clinical application and assessing their impacts on Australian and international health systems. Within the AEHRC, the charter of the Transformational Bioinformatics Group is to develop novel bioinformatics solutions for research and industry using the latest in cloud and BigData infrastructure.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will join this group from the AEHRC and collaborate closely with both other researchers from CSIRO and external collaborators (such as the Translational Vectorology group at the CMRI, Westmead) to drive research into and develop new models vector packaging for gene therapy applications. The candidate will lead work into developing models of how the DNA cargo of a gene-therapy vector folds inside the viral capsid shell and how changes in either the DNA sequence itself or the protein structure of this capsid can influence the overall packaging efficiency. The Postdoctoral Fellow will then work with collaborators to implement these models to streamline the process of vector design and manufacturing, directly contributing to cutting edge precision medicine research.
Your duties will include: Carrying out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes. Developing innovate concepts, theories, tools and techniques related to vector design and packaging. Undertaking regular reviews of relevant literature and patents.
Producing high quality scientific and/or engineering papers suitable for publication in peer-reviewed journals, client reports, blog posts, and granting of patents. Preparing appropriate conference papers and presenting those at conferences as agreed with your supervisor, as well as YouTube videos to showcase approaches and findings. Location: North Ryde, NSW (relocating to Westmead Innovation Quarter December 2021) Salary: AU$88k - AU$96k plus up to 15.
