Postdoctoral Fellow/Research Fellow - Immunology and Microbiology

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoc position at Australian National University. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. Applications are invited up to September 13, 2018.

- An exciting project investigating the role of innate immunity and inflammasomes in infectious diseases or cancer.
- Opportunity to develop a range of skills from basic molecular biology to in vivo models.
- Opportunity to mentor students and be mentored towards independence.

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.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will work on an exciting project in the laboratory of Dr Si Ming Man at the John Curtin School of Medical Research. The Postdoctoral Fellow will study the mechanisms regulating innate immune recognition of pathogens, and how pattern-recognition receptors shape the overall immune response to infection. This fellow will also have an opportunity to study the molecular basis by which uncontrolled inflammation leads to the development of cancer (References: Man et al. Cell 2016;167:382-96; Man et al.
