Postdoctoral Fellow at Australian National University

Australian National University, Australia is offering postdoctoral researcher position in medical sciences. Potential candidates should apply before October 21, 2018.

Our team (ANU Applied Optics/BioOptics Lab under Dr Steve Lee) focuses on capturing dynamic processes, such as trafficking and responses of blood cells, including immune cells, in thrombosis and immunity challenges i.e. infection and cancer. This position will be required to work in close collaboration with imaging engineers, biochemists and immunologists. Basic data analysis methods will be needed to analyse high resolution multi-parametric imaging data sets. Research activities will focus on multiphoton, holographic and lightsheet instruments, although other imaging modalities (live cell/super-resolution) will likely be employed to provide complementary information.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in optical microscopy, physiology, data analysis methods, and a keen interest in applying cutting-edge optical imaging tools, developed at the Research School of Engineering, to address specific biological questions related to research programs at the John Curtin School of Medical Research. The fellow will join a dynamic team of researchers (group leaders, PhD students, Postdocs) and have unlimited access to state-of-art volumetric microscopy e.g. video rate 3D multiphoton, lightsheet, holographic, oblique scanning; each enabling real-time volumetric imaging in cells to organs.

ANU has an international reputation for research and education relevant to the health and well-being of the population of Australia, as well as that of the developing world. This is achieved through discovery research, applied research in health service settings, research-led teaching in health and medical sciences, and the translation of research findings into practice and policy. The ANU College of Health and Medicine comprises the Research School of Psychology, the ANU Medical School, the John Curtin School of Medical Research and the Research School of Population Health. These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels.
