A one-year postdoctoral position in NMR-based metabonomics and Systems Biology is available in the group of Dr Horst Joachim Schirra, School of Chemitry and Molecular Biosciences, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will work in a team supervised by Dr Horst Schirra. The team uses NMR-based metabonomics and systems biology approaches to study the link between genotype and phenotype in health and disease. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will use NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and bioinformatics to study the link between genotype and phenotype in an obese mouse model on a genetic, metabolomic, and fluxomic level with the aim of developing a systems biology computational model of physiological changes that integrates data from all three experimental project streams. The project is funded by an Australian Research Council grant and a collaboration between SCMB, the Institute for Molecular Bioscience and the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology. Further details on the project are available at: http://seek.com.au/job/postdoctoral-research-fellow/brisbane/17286414/46/1/
The Person: The applicant should hold a PhD in the area of NMR spectroscopy, Bioinformatics/Biostatistics, or an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training. The applicant should have the ability to plan, execute and interpret experiments independently; the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues; high level inter-personal and communication skills; and aptitude for research as demonstrated by publications in high quality international journals.
Remuneration: This is a full-time, fixed term appointment initially for 1 year at Research Academic Level A. The remuneration package will be in the range $64,063 – $68,768 p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of 17% (total package will be in the range $74,953 - $80,458 p.a.).
