Snow Postdoctoral Associate


  • Two full time, 3 12 months fastened time period positions out there. Positioned on the Darlington Campus on the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering
  • Alternative to contribute to modern 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 a part of a groundbreaking analysis workforce within the vibrant, modern area 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. You’ll find extra particulars concerning the fellowship and our challenge goals by way of the next hyperlinks:

Within the MBL, we’re paving the best way for modern developments in mechanobiology, with a concentrate on cardiovascular ailments and most cancers. Leveraging a novel “4M” strategy – Mechanics, Microscopy, Microfabrication & Molecular modelling, we now have pioneered customized mechanobiology applied sciences that might 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 growing 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 drive sensing of platelets, neutrophils, and crimson blood cells. This place is a novel alternative to contribute to a challenge that mixes biomechanical drive probe (BFP)/micropipette, optical tweezers expertise 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 Area 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 in search of a PostdoctoralAnalysis Affiliate who has:

  • a PhD in a related area 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 revealed in peer reviewed journals. Candidates who’ve submitted their PhD for examination or will achieve this within the quick future might be thought-about
  • expertise in 2D cell tradition, 3D spheroid/organoid tradition, biomaterial improvement, move cytometry, fluorescent and confocal microscopy operation and imaging
  • expertise in working single molecule biophysical nanotools comparable to micropipette aspiration, optical tweezers, patch clamping, traction drive microscopy, acoustic drive microscopy and equipvalent business 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 rising independence and to current that work in a fascinating method.

Candidates who reveal the next standards might be extremely regarded:

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

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