From the legacy of legendary heart transplant surgeon Victor Chang, the Institute’s team has rapidly pioneered research with a shared and life changing vision – to reduce the incidence, severity and impact of heart disease, still the leading cause of death and disability in our society.
Applications are invited for a Research Assistant or Post-doctoral Scientist to join the Computational Cardiology group at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute.
In this position, you will use computational models of cardiac electrophysiology to evaluate the mechanism of disease in both inherited and drug-induced arrhythmias.
You will join a dynamic team of scientists working on the molecular basis of abnormal heart rhythms using state-of-the-art electrophysiology and computational techniques.
This is a full-time appointment for up to three years with the possibility of renewal subject to funding.
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.
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
- Stimulating work setting focussed on cutting edge medical research
- Collaborative team environment
