Csiro Postdoctoral Fellowship In Infectious Disease Detection

Jobs on jobactive - Clayton, VIC

Any Industry
Source: uWorkin


CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.

Methods to detect and discriminate pathogens effectively are urgently required to facilitate the diagnosis of infectious diseases and to provide guidance for effective treatments. The aim of the project is to provide diagnostic tools with ultra-high sensitivity for early pathogen detection and identification.

As a Postdoctoral Fellow with CSIRO Manufacturing you will work on novel biosensing approaches, including in particular electrochemical approaches. The biosensor device manufacturing will include work at the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN). Moreover, you will work closely with CSIRO’s Infectious Disease Resilience (IDR) Mission which supports national and global efforts to prevent, detect, respond to and recover from the threat of infectious diseases.

Your Duties Will Include

  • Develop novel biosensors for the detection of biomarkers and pathogens.
  • Work and communicate with academic collaborators as well as industry partners.
  • Carry out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
  • Recognise and exploit opportunities for innovation and the generation of new theoretical perspectives, and progress opportunities for the further development or creation of new lines of research.

Location: Clayton, VIC

Salary: AU$88k - AU$96k plus up to 15.4% superannuation

Tenure: Specified term of 2 years
