We acknowledge their continuing connection to their culture and pay our respects to their Elders past and present. View our vision towards reconciliation The Opportunity Do you have a PhD in immunology, molecular biology, or animal science? Contribute to the Immune Resilience Future Science Platform Join CSIRO - Australia’s leading scientific research organisation! CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system. This position will form part of the Immune Resilience Future Science Platform (FSP). The Immune Resilience FSP aims to harness the fundamental understanding of the immune system to develop novel strategies and platforms that will build resilience in animals to combat disease and parasite challenges. The successful candidate will sit within CSIRO’s Livestock & Aquaculture program, which aims to deliver genetic and management technologies to transform the breeding, health, monitoring, nutrition, production and sustainability of the livestock and aquaculture sectors. The Fellow will specifically develop and apply expertise in immunology, molecular biology and animal health to develop novel platform technologies for measuring and profiling T cell responses at mucosal immune barriers in aquatic and terrestrial species. Your duties will include: Developing novel technology for direct characterisation of T cell specificity in animal tissues. Applying immunological and molecular approaches to analyse T cell responses and identify resistant phenotypes in animal disease. Carrying out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
