POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW (1 POSITION)

Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute

Deadline: 1 June 2018

Location: Sydney

 

 

The Role

We are seeking an enthusiastic Post-doctoral Scientist to join an international team and who wants to forge a career in biochemistry and biological chemistry in the Vascular Biology Division, headed by Professor Roland Stocker.

The Project

The project involves the characterization of biochemical pathways that differentiate unstable from stable atherosclerotic lesions, with the aim to fill a currently unmet but important clinical need to identify unstable plaques in humans that can give rise to heart attacks.

The focus will be on using a mouse model of unstable/vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque (Circ Res 2013;113:252) and characterizing unstable and stable plaque using non-targeted and targeted proteomics and metabolomics. The potential clinical relevance of novel biochemical parameters identified in the mouse model as being specific for vulnerable plaques will be tested by:

quantifying these parameters in blood plasma samples from well characterized patients with or without acute coronary syndrome; and
developing methods to detect the novel pathways identified as potential novel imaging tool for the non-invasive detection of vulnerable plaque in vivo.
About You

The successful candidate will hold a PhD, be highly motivated, capable of independent work as well as performing well in a team, and be willing to ‘bridge’ biochemical with biomedical research.

Good interpersonal, written and oral communication skills are required.

Hands-on experience with the following is essential:

· Experience in analytical biochemistry including LC-MS/MS

· Experience in proteomics and/or metabolomics, including analysis of data from non-targeted ‘omics’ approach’

· Experience in working with biological materials, preferentially mouse and human tissue

Experience and capacity to establish novel analytical methods is desirable, as is knowledge in redox chemistry/biochemistry.

What we offer:

Salary packaging
Bonus superannuation
State of the art facilities
Collaborative team environment
Stimulating work setting focussed on cutting edge medical research
We strive to ensure our staff and students enjoy a great working environment. We value and are committed to providing a working environment that embraces diversity and gender equity and promotes flexible working arrangements for staff to balance working requirements and personal needs.

To apply please send your cover letter, resume and contact details of three referees to recruitment@victorchang.edu.au.
