RESEARCH FELLOW IN COMPUTATIONAL SYSTEMS BIOLOGY
Job no: 0043121
Work type: Fixed Term
Department of Biomedical Engineering
School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering
Melbourne School of Engineering
Salary: Level A: $66,809*-$90,657 p.a. (*PhD entry Level A.6 $84,458 p.a.) or Level B: $95,434 - $113,323 p.a, plus 9.5% superannuation. Level of appointment will be commensurate with the qualifications and relevant experience of the successful appointee.
The Research Fellow in Systems Biology will undertake research to develop standards and databases for reproducible systems biology, in particular focusing on computational models of cell-nanomaterial interactions. This research will contribute to an Australian government ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology, in which Professor Edmund Crampin is a Chief Investigator. The aim of the research project is to develop computational approaches for standardisation and reproducibility of systems biology models, and to apply these approaches to develop databases that link computational models and related experimental data. These methods will be applied to data and models relating to the interactions between cells and nanomaterials, as well as other areas of systems biology.
The Research Fellow in Systems Biology will join the Systems Biology Laboratory; a multi-investigator collaborative research group at the University of Melbourne, based at the School of Mathematics and Statistics and in the new Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Melbourne School of Engineering. The Systems Biology Laboratory is directed by Professor Edmund Crampin. More information about the Systems Biology Laboratory and its constituent research groups can be found at the website: https://systemsbiologylaboratory.com
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.
