RESEARCH OFFICER Parkville VIC An exciting opportunity to work with expert microbial scientists and clinicians to help us continue to build leading-edge capability to understand complex microbial genomic and biochemical landscapes, and how they link to human health and disease.
Within the framework of collaborative partnerships, Doherty Applied Microbial Genomics (DAMG) offers pathogen and microbiome sequencing capacity, broad expertise in bioinformatics and critical training to undertake microbial genomics and microbiome enabled research. The collaborative partnerships within the Doherty Institute and more widely, including with clinical partners, are increasingly focused on the role of the microbiome and metagenomic studies to understand human health and disease, immunology, antimicrobial resistance, and the potential for microbiome informed biotherapeutic approaches in medicine.
The DAMG initiative part of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at The University of Melbourne, led by Prof Benjamin Howden... (Medical Director), Prof Timothy Stinear (Scientific Director) and A/ Prof Torsten Seemann (Lead Bioinformatician), who are recognised as global leaders in the fields of public health and clinical microbiology, microbial genomics and bioinformatics. Colleagues within the Doherty Institute also include global leaders in immunology and immunometabolism.
DAMG is seeking to appoint a microbiome and metagenomics senior research scientist to primarily work collaboratively with research partners to analyse and report on DAMG generated microbiome and metagenomics data, including new studies related to the relationship between the microbiome and SARS-CoV-2 infection. The successful applicant will also participate in the research program of Prof Tim Stinear and Prof Ben Howden within the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Doherty Institute and be expected to develop an independent research program relevant to the study of the microbiome and human health and disease Parkville VIC Australia (+1 other)
