Post-doctoral Research Fellow (Bioinformatician)

Private Company - Prince Of Wales, QLD

Any Industry
Source: uWorkin


The Opportunity

  • 3-Year Fixed-Term, Full-time opportunity
  • $97K - $104K (+ 17% superannuation & leave loading)
  • Sydney, Australia based.

The School of Medical Sciences (SoMS) is the largest School within UNSW Medicine, and one of the largest at UNSW. The school is based largely within the Wallace Wurth (Medicine) Building on the Kensington campus, but also includes the Lowy Cancer Research Centre. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be based in the Stem Cell Group, Adult Cancer Program, Lowy Cancer Research Centre and will investigate the molecular identity of healthy and diseased blood stem cells and tissues that support their development with a view to translating findings to benefit blood cancer therapy and regenerative medicine.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will demonstrate the ability to conduct high-quality research in computational biology. They will design, set up and manage projects that use single cell transcriptomics and multi-omics to investigate the development and function of healthy blood and leukemic cells.

The ideal candidate will combine a solid background in single cell computational analytics (e.g., data analysis, machine learning, graph-based single cell representations) with a strong drive to work with experimentalists to translate algorithmic advances into novel and interpretable biomedical discoveries across a rich and diverse range of topics that include- blood cancers (Unnikrishnan et al Cell Reports 2017, Anande et al Clinical Cancer Research 2020, Thoms et al Blood 2021), regenerative medicine and developmental biology (Yeola et al Science Advances 2021, Tabula Muris Consortium Nature 2020, Nature 2018), viral infections (Domingo-Gonzalez*, Zanini* et al Elife 2020, Zanini et al Elife 2018) and method development (Faridani et al Nature Biotechnology 2016, Hagemann-Jensen et al Nature Biotechnology 2020, Zanini et al Sci Rep 2020). They will show a strong drive to interact with, advise and when necessary, learn from experimentalists.

The role of Postdoctoral Research Fellow reports to the Head, data driven Biomedicine Group (Dr Fabio Zanini; http://fabilab.org) and has a dotted reporting line to the Head of the Stem Cell Group (Professor John Pimanda). PD Fellow (Bioninformatician) Level A SOMS
