Snow Postdoctoral Associate


  • Two full time, 3 12 months fastened time period positions obtainable. Situated on the Darlington Campus on the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering
  • Alternative to contribute to progressive analysis in both mechanobiology or single-cell mass cytometry or transcriptomic profiling
  • Base Wage $101K – $112K + 17% superannuation

In regards to the alternative

Come be part of a groundbreaking analysis workforce within the vibrant, progressive discipline of biomechanical engineering! The Mechanobiology and Biomechanics Laboratory (MBL) on the College of Sydney is led by A/Prof Lining (Arnold) Ju, the first-ever engineer recipient of the historic $8 million Snow Fellowship. Yow will discover extra particulars concerning the fellowship and our mission goals through the next hyperlinks:

Within the MBL, we’re paving the best way for progressive developments in mechanobiology, with a deal with cardiovascular illnesses and most cancers. Leveraging a novel “4M” method – Mechanics, Microscopy, Microfabrication & Molecular modelling, we now have pioneered personalised mechanobiology applied sciences that would probably revolutionize healthcare. We collaborate carefully with the Charles Perkins Centre, Sydney Nano Institute, and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, placing us on the forefront of creating applied sciences like point-of-care microdevices, AI imaging modalities, and mechano-medicine screening platforms.

As a part of this distinctive workforce, you’ll assist advance single-cell mechanobiological strategies for locating molecular mechanisms behind the mechanical pressure sensing of platelets, neutrophils, and pink blood cells. This place is a novel alternative to contribute to a mission that mixes biomechanical pressure probe (BFP)/micropipette, optical tweezers know-how with organ-on-chip, 3D vascular bioprinting, proteomic and transcriptomic profiling on prothrombotic phenotypes in sufferers with getting old, diabetes, weight problems and even astronauts and fighter jet pilots who expertise excessive mechanical and aerodynamic situation for future House Mechanobiology.

The College values braveness and creativity; openness and engagement; inclusion and variety; and respect and integrity. As such, we see the significance of recruiting expertise aligned to those values and are on the lookout for a PostdoctoralAnalysis Affiliate who has:

  • a PhD in a related discipline particularly one of many followings: 1) single-molecule biophysics and biophotonic instrumentation, 2) Single-cell mass cytometry and transcriptome profiling; 3) Single-cell mechanobiology, with a powerful hands-on PC1 and PC2 lab expertise together with a physique of organic work printed in peer reviewed journals. Candidates who’ve submitted their PhD for examination or will accomplish that within the speedy future could be thought-about
  • expertise in 2D cell tradition, 3D spheroid/organoid tradition, biomaterial growth, circulation cytometry, fluorescent and confocal microscopy operation and imaging
  • expertise in working single molecule biophysical nanotools corresponding to micropipette aspiration, optical tweezers, patch clamping, traction pressure microscopy, acoustic pressure microscopy and equipvalent industrial devices.
  • some data and curiosity in programming, e.g. familiarity with utilizing two or extra of Labview, AutoCAD, MATLAB, ANSYS, COMSOL, SolidWorks, MD simulation or molecular modeling software program e.g. GROMACS, NAMD, and different engineering and physics software program;
  • excellent interpersonal, written, and oral communication abilities and the flexibility to conduct prime quality analysis with growing independence and to current that work in an attractive means.

Candidates who display the next standards can be extremely regarded:

  • capabilities in unbiased microdevice instrumentation, e.g. instrumenting or working optical tweezers, micropipette aspiration techniques, patch clamping, micromanipulation and microinjection techniques, or different biophysical experimental units corresponding to rheometers and parallel plate circulation chambers and microfluidic system
  • experience and expertise in single-cell mass cytometry and transcriptome profiling approaches corresponding to single-cell RNA sequencing or proteomic analyses from major tissues and blood samples.
  • stable fundamental data of cell biology and hands-on expertise in PC2 organic laboratory, utilizing circulation cytometer, cell tradition, ELISA, protein coating, conjugation, protein-protein interplay assays, protein/antibody labelling and useful characterization

Of explicit curiosity are candidates who display a ardour in system automation management utilizing Labview or equal system management software program and an curiosity in synthetic intelligence assisted picture information evaluation.
