Postdoctoral Researcher Position at Burnet Institute

An exciting opportunity is available for a Post-doctoral Researcher to join the Malaria and Tropical Diseases Group at Burnet Institute.

This role is predominately a lab-based role and requires expertise in biochemistry, molecular biology (e.g. PCR, cloning, etc), as well as protein expression, purification and characterisation.

Our group has created a cross-disciplinary environment that provides advances across the spectrum of basic science, clinical medicine and public health. These approaches seek to improve diagnostics, surveillance, clinical management and prevention of infectious diseases, especially in resource-poor settings. There is a particular focus on the development of new diagnostic tests to improve individual care and population-based surveillance data. We collaborate closely with multidisciplinary teams, including industry partners and key national health programs, to bring genuine solutions to market and to implement locally appropriate and sustainable solutions in the field.

Opportunities exist to be involved with clinical studies, field-based research and for international travel.

The position is funded initially for a period of 12 months with likelihood of extension.

Applications close 17 February 2019.
