OCE Postdoctoral Fellow - Insights into Alzheimer's disease: tomographic metals mapping
Location: CSIRO CME, Parkville/Australian Synchrotron, Clayton
CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering / Preventative Health Flagship, in collaboration with Australian Syncrontron is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow who will take responsibility for the physical and biophysical aspects of the development of advanced XTF imaging techniques, investigate and address the self-absorption problem as it applies to biological systems, develop analytical frameworks and analysis pipeline and apply these developments to specimens.
Your research will contribute to the development of advanced imaging techniques resulting in quantitative elemental mapping in 3D and will be vital in the direct confirmation of the modulation of metal deposition by drug compounds developed by CSIRO to alter the folding pathways of Aβ and metal binding. You will have access to world class facilities and equipment that has transformed synchrotron trace element imaging.
Interact with physicists and imaging scientists to develop novel imaging techniques based on XFT approaches utilising Maia x-ray microprobe detector and imaging system.
Apply developments to specimens of direct relevance to questions of metals in AD, particularly as it appears in available AD models such as transgenic roundworm and transgenic mice.
Work with other team members and provide supervision and/or support to junior staff or students.
Produce high quality scientific and technical outputs including journal articles, conference papers, presentations, patents and technical reports.
Develop innovative concepts and ideas for further research.
Participate in CSIRO’s postdoctoral training program.
Location: Clayton, Victoria, Australia
Salary: $81k – $88k plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Reference Number: VIC13/01506
Term: 3 years
The successful candidate will have:
A PhD, or will shortly satisfy the requirements for a PhD degree in Physics, Biophysics, Materials Science/Engineering or a related discipline with no more than 3 years Postdoctoral experience.
Willingness to undertake experimentation at advanced radiation sources, especially synchrotron facilities.
Demonstrated ability to apply mathematical and / or computational methods to address complex problems.
Demonstrated skills in computer programming and a high level of computer literacy.
Demonstrated originality, creativity and innovation in solving problems and introducing new directions and approaches.
Ability to work with a broad range of people from varying research backgrounds and evidence of strong oral and written communication skills, including the ability to publish the results of scientific research in scientific journals.
Demonstrated ability to work independently under minimal supervision while contributing to overall team performance and proven ability to meet performance deadlines during the course of the project.
