The Opportunity

This Research Fellow position is an exciting opportunity to join the recently founded Molecular Physiology of Microbial Pathogens lab, headed by National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Investigator Dr Rhys Grinter.

The successful candidate will be a crucial contributor and intellectual driving force for Dr Grinter's ARC-funded research program to develop novel protein antibiotics targeting bacterial pathogens. This position requires a candidate with a strong background in molecular microbiology and will allow them to grow their expertise in antibiotic discovery, synthetic biology and protein engineering. It will also provide the opportunity for the candidate to engage in collaborative research within Dr Grinter's wider research program.

As a successful candidate, you will conduct day-to-day research independently, under the broader guidance of Dr Grinter, to fulfil the stated objectives of the antibiotic discovery project. Supporting your transition to independence, you will have the opportunity to lead a team of more junior researchers and engage in professional development activities. The candidate will also provide limited administrative functions primarily connected with Dr Grinter's lab and broader research program. The position will provide the opportunity to contribute to University teaching efforts related to the project and skills of the candidate.

The appointee will have a doctoral qualification in the relevant discipline or a closely related field.

Diversity is one of our greatest strengths at Monash. We encourage applications from First Nations people, culturally and linguistically diverse people, people with disabilities, neurodiverse people, and people of all genders, sexualities, and age groups.

Be part of our story. Work with us to #ChangeIt.

Monash avidly supports flexible and hybrid working arrangements. We have a range of policies in place enabling staff to combine work and personal commitments more easily.
