Institute for Molecular Biosceience


The University of Queensland’s Institute for Molecular Bioscience, located on the main University campus, is Australia’s leading biosciences research institute. Established in 2000, the Institute is home to over 420 staff and is located in thriving Brisbane, a city consistently ranked as one of the world’s most vibrant and liveable cities.

 

The Institute, ranked in the Top 20 globally for life sciences research, pursues a multidisciplinary approach to solving some of the world’s most serious challenges in the fields of health, disease and sustainable solutions for our cities, fuels and foods. The Institute is housed in a single building and is organized into technological platforms (Divisions) and research themes (Centres). The Divisions support state-of-the art facilities including the Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis, which houses new cryo-electron microscopes; the NMR facility containing 500, 600 and 900 MHz machines; the Mass Spectrometry Facility accommodating a wide array of instrumentation; suites for work with a variety of model organisms; a plethora of next generation DNA sequencing technologies and the southern hemispheres leading program in complex genetic traits. The Research Centres accommodate 36 groups using a combination of genomics, chemistry and cell biology to take life science discoveries from the genome to drug design and application in the areas of antimicrobial resistance, inflammation, pain, cardiovascular disease and rare and developmental diseases.

The role
The primary purpose of this role is to apply cutting edge computational approaches to understand the molecular underpinnings of cellular identity. It will focus on dissecting the transcriptional and molecular pathways that control cell fate in the context of transcription factor based reprogramming, cellular ageing and differentiation.

 

The person
The successful appointee will ideally hold a PhD or equivalent in statistical genetics, computational bioinformatics (or similar relevant field). This will be partnered with demonstrated research competence in computational bioinformatics and experience working with large scale genomic data. You will also able to write code in language such as R, Matlab, Perl, or Python for bioinformatics analyses.

 

In addition, you will be able to demonstrate: the ability to work collaboratively with bench scientists to solve complex biological problems; the ability to present complex results to both bioinformatics and non-bioinformatics audiences; experience in problem solving and methodological troubleshooting; the ability to embrace new experimental procedures; attention to detail in carrying out and documenting experimental work; and a high level of professional integrity.

 

Salary and Benefits
This is a full-time, fixed term appointment for 12 months at Academic level A. The remuneration package will be in the range $67,542 - $90,982) p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of up to 17% (total package will be in the range $79,024 - $106,448 p.a.).
