About This Opportunity



A Postdoctoral Research Fellow will focus their efforts on structural characterization of proteins involved in neurodegeneration, infection and immunity, including SARM1, Toll-like and interleukin-1 receptors and their adaptors, plant NLRs and bacterial and viral virulence factors. The duties will involve DNA construct design, recombinant protein production in different expression systems, structural characterization by X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron miscroscopy and other biophysical techniques.



This position is located at our picturesque St Lucia campus, renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses,

and located just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, and with outstanding public transport connections, our 114-hectare site provides a perfect work environment – you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.



Our Ideal Candidate



To be successful in this role, you will have a PhD (or close to be awarded PhD) in the discipline area. You will have demonstrated expert knowledge in protein production and structural biology (in particular X-ray crystallography an/or cryo-electron microscopy) and a track record of publication of research findings in peer reviewed journals. You will also possess the ability to commence establishing effective relationships to represent and promote the research area at a university and wider community level as well as a high-level of communication and interpersonal skills.



This position is open to candidates who currently hold unrestricted work rights or candidates who are currently on a relevant work visa based within Australia. Visa sponsorship may be available for this appointment



To ensure representation across all gender identities within the Faculty of Science, as well as STEM disciplines more broadly, UQ strongly encourages female and gender diverse applicants to apply for this opportunity.
