Prof. Jamie Rossjohn FAA FAHMS FLSW FMedSci, ARC Australian Laureate Fellow & Head, Infection and Immunity Program, Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, seeks a postdoctoral researcher to join his research group to work in the area of structural immunology.

The Rossjohn laboratory has provided profound insight into the molecular bases underpinning lipid-mediated immunity (e.g. Nature 2007, Immunity 2009, 2011, Nature Immunol. 2012, 2015 & 2016), and seeks to build upon these initial findings in the context of protective, tumour and aberrant immunity. The laboratory is funded by grants from the NHMRC and ARC.

Interested applicants should hold a PhD, have a proven track record in the field of protein chemistry and structural biology, and be sufficiently self-motivated to pioneer new areas of immune recognition. Candidates with a promising track record in the relevant areas and a proven publication record in international journals are encouraged to apply.

An appointment will be made at a level appropriate to the successful applicant’s qualifications, experience and in accordance with the classification standards for each level.
