Postdoctoral Research Fellow -tiganis Lab at Monash University

Monash University, Australia has an opening postdoctoral associate position in molecular biology. Applications are welcome before September 17, 2019.

The Tiganis lab is part of Monash University's Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) that includes more than 100 research teams from across 5 different Departments of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. The Lab is located in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, on the same open-plan floor as several other highly experienced and successful laboratory heads in the areas of signalling, cancer and metabolism. The Lab is also part of the Monash BDI Metabolism Diabetes and Obesity program, arguably one of Australia's leading programs in metabolism research. The successful candidate will benefit from this highly collaborative and multidisciplinary environment with the aim of nurturing the career development of ambitious researchers towards independent careers in academia and industry.

The Tiganis Lab is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to join an established research team with a track record in research excellence. The team takes an integrative approach that stems the fields of metabolism, immunology and cancer to address fundamental questions in biology and disease. A particular focus is the pathophysiological mechanisms contributing to obesity and type 2 diabetes and how these in turn drive the development of diseases such non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and cancer.

This is a unique opportunity to join a passionate team at a leading university in a top-ranked school of Biomedical Sciences. The ideal candidates will be self-driven and have a track record of research excellence. They will be capable of coordinating multifaceted research programs and working both independently and collaboratively in a team. The Research Fellow will be appointed at either Level A or Level B depending on experience, qualifications and track record.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in the areas of physiology, neuroscience or obesity research and a track record in mouse handling and dissection, immunohistochemistry, genotyping, real time PCR, cell culture and other general biochemical techniques including western blotting, or equivalent qualifications in a related discipline from a recognised university and postdoctoral research experience and training in those areas.

If you feel you have the drive and expertise to contribute to this team, please apply. As part of your expression of interest, you are required to send the following information to tony. tiganis@monash.
