The Opportunity

A Research Fellow opportunity exists to join a dynamic academic industry partnership within the ARC Centre for Excellence in Advanced Imaging, led from Monash University and the Whisstock Laboratory.

In this role you will be required to crystallise and solve the structures of a range of biomedically relevant proteins including ligand:receptor complexes and antibody:receptor complexes. You will also oversee and assist in the production of recombinant proteins for detailed functional testing in cell-lines and animal models. Knowledge in a range specialised techniques is required (not all are essential) including production of recombinant protein from bacterial, insect and mammalian sources for X-ray crystallography and functional assays, expertise in Biacore, tissue culture, molecular biology, protein chemistry, and common endotoxin testing techniques.

Experience in, or a willingness to learn single-particle cryo-electron microscopy would be advantageous. You will be required to work in a collaborative environment to solve challenging problems in structural biology and molecular medicine.

If you feel that you have the skills and experience to make this role a success your application is encouraged.
