Default Postdoctoral Fellow (Epigenetics Liquid Biopsy Markers) - CSIRO, Sydney, Australia

Postdoctoral Fellowship on a project seeking to find and characterise circulating cell-free DNA biomarkers of traumatic brain injury.
  • Based at CSIRO, Sydney, NSW, Australia
  • AU $78k to $88k plus up to 15.4% superannuation
  • 3 year term.
  • Translational focus

Essential Criteria:
  1. Demonstrated knowledge and understanding of molecular biology.
  2. Demonstrated knowledge and experience in bioinformatics for the analysis and interpretation of multi-dimensional datasets.
  3. Demonstrated proficiency in at least one data analysis language: R, Python, MATLAB.
  4. Willingness to work across regionally dispersed, multi-disciplinary research teams and institutions across Sydney and Brisbane and the motivation and discipline to carry out autonomous research.
  5. A record of science innovation and creativity, plus the ability and willingness to incorporate novel ideas and approaches into scientific investigations.

Desirable Criteria:
  1. Knowledge of epigenetics.
  2. Experience in undertaking lab procedures with bisulfite-treated DNA. E.g. Methylation-specific PCR, bisulfite amplicon library preparation.
  3. Experience with Unix shell or a scripting, interpreted or compiled language: Python, Ruby, Perl, C++, Java, Scala.
  4. A knowledge of commonly used genomics tools for working with deep sequencing data.

The Postdoctoral Fellow appointed to this role will join CSIRO’s Probing Biosystems team to undertake a Future Science Platform (FSP) project led by Dr Jason Ross. This project seeks to find and characterise circulating cell-free DNA biomarkers of traumatic brain injury with the translational goal of developing a clinical biomarker in this space. The Epigenetics Team in North Ryde, NSW has a long history in DNA methylation biomarker development, including the co-development of Colvera™ with the Clinical Genomics company. Colvera™ is a biomarker product for diagnosing and monitoring the recurrence of colorectal cancer.

Postdoctoral Fellowships at CSIRO provide opportunities to scientists and engineers, who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships will help launch their careers, provide experience that will enhance their career prospects, and facilitate the recruitment and development of potential leaders for CSIRO.
