Postdoctoral Scientist (Level A) CIIID

This position will be based in the Centre for Innate Immunity and Infectious Diseases (CiiiD) and the Cell Death and Inflammatory Signalling Research Group, headed by Dr Kate Lawlor. Dr Lawlor’s research focuses on the cross-talk between programmed cell death and inflammatory signalling pathways in inflammatory and infectious diseases. We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated postdoctoral scientist to work on projects relating to cell death, inflammasome activation and inflammatory signalling.

Selection Criteria

  • PhD in biochemistry, immunology, or a related discipline. A focus on cell death, inflammasome, inflammatory signalling or innate immunity is highly desirable.
  • Ability to work independently but also to work collaboratively within the team.
  • A strong publication track record, including first author papers, in highly regarded peer-reviewed journals.
  • Technical skills in cell biology (cell culture, immunoassays, microscopy), gene editing (CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, overexpression systems), biochemistry and molecular biology (cloning, immunoblotting, immunoprecipitations, RT-PCR), and multi-colour flow cytometry are essential.
  • Proficiency in preclinical models of infectious and inflammatory diseases, and model readouts is desirable.

If you meet the above criteria and are extremely organised, have an aptitude for problem solving, and excellent written and verbal communication skills, then we welcome your application.

Please apply via SEEK “Apply Now” by Sunday, 17 February at 5pm.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted for interview.
