Take your career in exciting, rewarding directions
Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work.
We’re a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what’s expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.
Monash University strongly advocates diversity, equality, fairness and openness. We fully support the gender equity principles of the Athena SWAN Charter and invite you to join us in celebratingwomen in STEMM .
Research in Damian Dowling's laboratory is focused on the role the mitochondrial genome plays in evolutionary adaptation.
We seek a talented and highly-motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our laboratory group, to study the evolutionary implications of heteroplasmy – the scenario in which multiple mitochondrial DNA haplotypes exist within one individual. Recent studies indicate heteroplasmy is widespread, and can be caused by paternal transmission of mtDNA. But the effects of heteroplasmy on evolutionary processes remain unclear, and many important questions unanswered.
This project will integrate experimental techniques in molecular biology and evolutionary biology, leveraging the model speciesDrosophila melanogaster, to study the effects of heteroplasmy in shaping evolutionary responses to natural selection.
As the successful candidate, you will have a PhD degree, a record of publication in international journals, strong skills in molecular biology including genotyping and qPCR, prior experience of usingDrosophilafor genetics research, and an understanding of evolutionary concepts. Experience in microinjection, or mitochondrial-related research, is a plus.
You will have opportunities to co-supervise undergraduate and Master's level research projects within the Dowling group, and to collaborate with international leaders in the field of mitochondrial biology.
This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to"How to apply for Monash Jobs ".
