Currently Open Positions





The Plant Structural Immunology laboratory at ANU, led by Dr Simon Williams, has a three-year postdoctoral fellow position available to understand the structural basis of plant innate immunity and fungal pathogenesis. The Plant Structural Immunology laboratory is a recently established laboratory within the Research School of Biology focussed on understanding at a mechanistic level how pathogens cause disease. The appointed postdoctoral fellow will undertake research to understand the interactions between plant pathogenic fungi and crops of agricultural importance. The studies will primarily utilise structural biology, protein biophysics and biochemistry approaches to study, in molecular detail, the interactions between fungal virulence (effector) proteins and plant defence proteins. It is anticipated that this work will lay the foundation for future biotechnology strategies to help control plant diseases.

  • Rapid assessment of grapes prior to harvest to quantify fungal off-flavours and product composition (CSU)
  • Alternatives to sulfur dioxide for controlling Brettanomyces spoilage in wine (UA)
  • The impact of light on oxidative and reductive aging of wine (CSU)
  • Defining and exploiting the indigenous microflora of grapes (UA)
  • Efficient red winemaking by monitoring extraction and evolution of colour and polyphenols (UA)
  • Efficient red winemaking by monitoring extraction and evolution of colour and polyphenols (UA – Masters position)
  • Membrane filtration technologies for efficient wine processing and recovery of valuable extracts (UA)

Information on available projects can be found on the join us page of the ARC TC-IWP website along with eligibility, stipend and application information.  We encourage anyone interested in specific project(s) to get in touch with the listed project supervisor to express your interest and discuss the project in more detail before applying.

Applications are open to suitably qualified Australian domestic and international students.  Successful applicants will receive an indicative stipend of $32,302 per annum as set by the ARC for three years (PhD) or two years (MPhil) as well as generous project operating funds.
