Centre-wide Research Fellow in PredictionThe University of Queensland
The School of Biological Sciences Academic level B/C Full Time/Fixed-term position for up to 4 years Closing November 21 2022 at 11.00pm AEST (R-18352) About This Opportunity This senior research position on prediction will work with several Chief Investigators in the CoE to enhance the CoE’s predictive capacity in the areas of phenotype, genome, transcriptome and trait prediction. The position will report to the Centre Director who will work with the Centre Executive and related committees to ensure the research is prioritized to address important knowledge/knowhow gaps in the Centre and to support multidisciplinary collaborations.
The primary purpose of this position is to improve prediction for genomic selection, omic analysis (e.g. transcriptome analysis of mechanisms), trait analysis (e.
g., hypothesis testing) and their integration. The position will carry responsibility to identify areas across the CoE that require innovation and collaboration in this area and then to work collaboratively to achieve this.
Plant systems may include Arabidopsis, sorghum, senecio, Marchantia and other systems prioritized by the CoE, its Partners and collaborators. Key responsibilities include: Research Innovate the Centre’s research in areas such as (i) directed networks, (ii) analysis and connectivity of networks across data layers including genomic, mechanistic and trait data and (iii) genomic prediction, (iv) machine learning. Undertake design of experiments, synthesis of data, new analyses, undertaking and reporting on literature searches.
Preparation and leadership of scientific papers from the research. Actively undertake or contribute to collaborative, multidisciplinary research, including plant biology and quantitative biology in the predictive space of the CoE. Communicate research outcomes, in the form of oral and written presentations to stakeholders including research partners and collaborators, at meetings, in reports, conferences, and in highly ranked peer-reviewed publications, where agreed.
Participate in industry engagement activities. Take a chief investigator role in applications for external research funds; and contribute to funding proposals, including research grant applications and tenders. Provide support for the Centre of Excellence in access and the development of prediction capacities within the National High-Performance Computing Infrastructure.
Additional Duties at Level C Independently develop collaborations with researchers across the Centre and across different nodes as well as with our Partners (such as CSIRO). Lead collaborative activities and applications for external research funds. Act as primary supervisor of multiple students.
Supervise junior postdoctoral researchers. Lead development of software and resources for the CoE and wider research community. Enhance collaboration between mathematicians and biologists in the CoE.
