John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU

Deadline: 3 March 2017

Location: Canberra

Reference no. 515597

Classification: ANUO 4/5 (Technical), Full-Time
Fixed Term:
2 years with possibility of extension
Salary package:
$60,260 – $73,309 per annum plus 17% superannuation 

  • An exciting project investigating the role of innate immunity and inflammasomes in infectious diseases or cancer.
  • Opportunity to develop a range of skills from basic molecular biology to in vivo models.
  • This position is also suitable for an individual who wishes to enrol in a PhD program in the future.

The ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment (CMBE) brings together medical, biological, population health, psychological and environmental sciences in six schools:  The ANU Medical School, The Fenner School of Environment and Society, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, the Research School of Biology, the Research School of Population Health, and the Research School of Psychology. Together the schools integrate high level research with a research-led curriculum that encompasses all of these different areas.

Position overview

The Immunology Research Technician will work on an exciting project in the laboratory of Dr Si Ming Man at the John Curtin School of Medical Research. Our lab investigates the role of innate immunity in infectious diseases and cancer. The incumbent will work on projects that study the mechanism by which innate immune sensors recognise pathogens, and how these sensors shape the overall immune response to infection. We also study the molecular basis by which uncontrolled inflammation can lead to the development of cancer.

Applications are invited from people with an Honours degree and/or post-graduate qualifications in immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, pathology, biochemistry or related disciplines. Previous experience in immunoblotting, PCR, cloning, transfection, cell culture, bacterial and viral culture, and mouse handling is desirable but not essential.

Sydney Medical Sciences

Deadline: 11 PM 19 March 2017

Location: Sydney

Reference no. 339/0217


  • Apply your developmental biology skills to the differentiation of stem cells
  • Located within state of the art facilities in the Charles Perkins Centre
  • Share our enthusiasm for meaningful research


About the opportunity 

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to the research laboratory of  Professor Peter Thorn at the Charles Perkins Centre. The laboratory focuses on the control of insulin secretion within the environment of intact islets of Langerhans. Our recent work is revealing the importance of the islet niche for the development and function of beta cells.


You will work on a project to refine techniques to differentiate stem cells into insulin secreting cells. We aim to recapitulate specific environmental cues of the islet with the intention of making cells that respond better to glucose. We are particularly looking for someone with a strong background in developmental biology or stem cell research. The project outcomes will be important for advancing stem cell therapies for the treatment of type 1 diabetes.


About you

The University values courage and creativity; openness and engagement; inclusion and diversity; and respect and integrity. We see the importance in recruiting talent aligned to these values in the pursuit of research excellence. We are looking for a researcher who has:

  • a PhD in a biomedical science related discipline
  • expertise with cell biology techniques and tissue culture procedures
  • expertise in developmental biology and stem cell biology
  • expertise in molecular biology techniques, including methods such as, plasmid design, transfection and shRNA
  • experience with biochemical activity assays
  • experience with single-cell imaging (desirable)
  • extensive understanding of cell signalling pathways.


About us

Since our inception 160 years ago, the University of Sydney has led to improve the world around us. We believe in education for all and that effective leadership makes lives better. These same values are reflected in our approach to diversity and inclusion, and underpin our long-term strategy for growth. We’re Australia’s first university and have an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. Across 9 campuses, we employ over 7600 academic and non-academic staff who support over 47,000 students.


We are undergoing significant transformative change which brings opportunity for innovation, progressive thinking, breaking with convention, challenging the status quo, and improving the world around us.
