  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Summary/Position: Animal Neuroimaging Fellow

The Animal Neuroimaging Fellow will work closely with the MNC Scientific Director, other Programme Grant researchers and key collaborators to collect and analyse animal (mouse) neuroimaging data obtained as part of the Programme Grant programme. The incumbent is expected to contribute scientific knowledge and expertise, establish a PhD fellowship in the field, and actively participate in the wider scientific community through conference presentations and peer-reviewed publications.

Deadline: 31 December 2022

  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Summary/Position: Global Influenza Dynamics Fellow

The Global Influenza Dynamics Fellow will conduct an integrated programme of mathematical science research to study the global spread of influenza viruses, aiming to understand the emergence and impact of different virulent strains in time and space. The role of antigenic drift, multi-strain dynamics, immune development and cross-protection will be considered and their potential role in shaping global influenza dynamics will be investigated.

Deadline: 11 January 2023

  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Summary/Position: Epidemiology and Housing Intervention Simulation Modelling Fellow

The successful applicant will need excellent epidemiological skills; a large and critical part of the position will be to evaluate existing studies and select the best ones to parameterise effect sizes (e.g. what is the ratio of asthma incidence to asthma severity for different severity of indoor moulds). You will need to enjoy conceptualising the causal network and being able to set reasonable effect sizes (and their uncertainties) for the many moving parts of the simulation model – even if the evidence isn’t perfect.

Deadline: 6 January 2023

  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Summary/Position: Marine Engineering Researcher

The successful applicant will be involved in a project funded by the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) aimed at studying the current and future meteorological marine climate of Port Phillip Bay (PPB) and surrounding waters. This exciting multidisciplinary study aims to validate models and simulate wave climate in the PPB for statistical description and to explore the links between Metocean climate and sediment transport, biogeochemistry and other processes in the bay.

Deadline: 4 January 2023

  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Summary/Position: Stroke Neuroimaging Fellow

Fellow with expertise in neuroimaging is sought to contribute to the research capacity of the Department of Medicine (Royal Melbourne Hospital) Melbourne Brain Centre for stroke neuroimaging research with the Department of Radiology at the University of Melbourne. The role will perform independent imaging analyses including perfusion MRI, diffusion-weighted imaging and functional MRI, as well as QSM of MRI brain imaging in stroke patients, with the assistance and supervision of a senior imaging scientist.

Deadline: 30 January 2023

  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Summary/Position: Research Fellow – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health

The University of Melbourne’s Department of Indigenous Epidemiology and Health is seeking a researcher to lead and coordinate a research project focused on Indigenous health. Research in the Aboriginal Epidemiology and Health Unit covers a range of key health areas across the life course: perinatal health, early childhood and adolescent health, mental health, cardiometabolic health, disability and cognitive/brain health (dementia prevention).

Deadline: 24 January 2023

  1. Postdoctoral Fellowship Position Summary/Position: Pure Mathematics Researcher

The Fellow is expected to work closely with Dr Jack Hall on the Australian Research Council (ARC) funded Derived Categories and Algebraic Stacks research program through its Future Fellowship program. While the research program is guided by a series of research questions, the Fellow will have considerable scope to develop his or her ideas within a broader research agenda.

Deadline: 15 January 2023

  1. Summary of postdoctoral fellowship position/position: Research Assistant/Researcher (Health Economics)

As part of a research team, you will be required to support, develop and manage a health economics research project under the supervision of Professor Kim Dalziel and Professor A/Ilias Goranitis. This position will provide an exciting opportunity to specialise in health economics evaluation and support the generation of health economics evidence required to inform the implementation of genomic medicine in Victoria and across Australia in Melbourne Genomics.
