Opportunity: Senior Researcher -- Computational Cell Biology @ NICTA -- Melbourne, Australia
Submitted by Rhiannon Moses; posted on Friday, June 21, 2013
BACKGROUND:
NICTA is seeking to recruit a Senior Researcher into its Health and Life Sciences team to help lead our program in Computational Cell Biology.

The mission of NICTA's Health and Life Sciences team is to advance the understanding of human diseases and to improve the health and well being of Australians through development of transformative and innovative ICT technologies for healthcare.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
Our team has strong and complementary expertise in diagnostic genomics, bioinformatics, text mining and biomedical informatics, and computational modeling and systems biology.

We are seeking to hire an exceptional computational biologist to work across these teams and in collaboration with our clinical and life sciences partners at the Parkville Precinct, to bring a computational approach to integrating molecular, biophysical and imaging data to generate cellular models of disease.

Many diseases are usefully studied at the cellular scale. Developments in confocal and super resolution microscopy, live cell imaging, cellular biomechanics and cell sorting allow us to monitor and manipulate cells to determine cause and effect relationships between cellular phenotypes and the underlying molecular pathways which determine cell function.

At the same time a wealth of information is available about the genomic information and biochemical networks, which underlie cellular processes in disease. Increasingly this information is becoming available on a cell-by-cell basis as techniques for single cell analysis are developed.

These types of information are rarely brought together to form an integrative understanding of cellular processes, and this is a challenge, which we seek to address at NICTA.

This is an exciting opportunity to play a leading role in the research and development of new technologies for life sciences research, benefiting from the depth and diversity of life sciences expertise at the Parkville Precinct and NICTA's expertise in ICT.

REQUIREMENTS:
The successful candidate will be a computational biologist with a track record of excellence in research, who takes a hands-on problem solving approach and who is comfortable working in a collaborative and highly interdisciplinary environment.

They will have a PhD and a minimum of 3 years post-doctoral experience in Computational or Mathematical Biology, Bioengineering, Systems Biology, or a related field, with a proven research contribution evident by a strong record of publications. Demonstrable skills in communication and teamwork are also essential.

Good programming skills and expertise in biological data analysis are essential, multiscale modeling would be advantageous. Previous experience in biomedical or molecular biology applications and a demonstrated history of innovation are highly desirable. Demonstrated experience in developing research agendas and supervising research students would be valuable.
