The successful applicant will work on developing polymer/DNA hybrids within the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering. The project focuses on the integration of biomolecules with polymeric systems for a broad range of applications in targeted sensing and diagnostics. The project will require expertise in molecular biology, organic chemistry and biomedical engineering.
The University offers a leading and robust research environment that is internationally engaged and recognised, community focused, and with many outstanding areas of research strength.
You will conduct independent research, leading to the preparation and publication of research outcomes in conferences and journals. The position will be located in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in the Melbourne School of Engineering and you will be expected to be an active member of the Department, collaborating with other researchers. You may undertake small amounts of teaching and research supervision directly related to your area of research, as required.
The Melbourne School of Engineering is strongly committed to supporting diversity and flexibility in the workplace. Applications for part-time or other flexible working arrangements will be welcomed and will be fully considered subject to meeting the inherent requirements of the position.
The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this, the School is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across engineering disciplines. Under a Special Measure, under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) the School is seeking to lift the representation of women from 20% in 2014 to at least 25% over the next 5 years, and strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates.
