Multiple Positions Available

The China-Australia Centre for Personalised Immunology is looking to provide several position to applicants with strong talent and motivation to do first class translational research. A strategic alliance including The Renji Hospital, associated with Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of MEdicine and The John Curtin School of Medical Research, The Australian National University, has been established.

The Centre provides an energetic, collaborative and inter-displinary structure, between researchs, clinicians and bioinformaticians with access to state-of-the-art technologies and equipment. The positions will be based at Renji Hospital/Shanghai Jiaotong School of Medicine in Shanghai, with the opportunity to spend time at the Australian National University in Canberra.

Positions available:

  • Postdoctoral Research Fellows (junior to senior positions): 

Candidates will analyse genome sequence data from patients with systemic autoimmune diseases (lupus being the prototype), or immunodeficiency to identify putative disease-causing mutations; prove causation using DNA-editing technologies and various molecular biology and cellular immunology assays; and place the mutated proteins into accurate signalling pathways.

  • Bioinformaticians:

Candidates should have experience of large genomic datasets and production computation performed against these, or can demonstrate the aptitude to quickly become capable with these. We expect candidates may have a research background or experience in a genetic pathology laboratory, though may also come from an engineering or computer science area. The core skillset of candidates should include:

  1. Real bioinformatics and genomics experience
  2. Programming experience
  3. Strong familiarity with Linux/Unix systems and aptitude for working with complex systems
  4.  A strong desire for professional development and a pragmatic approach to problem solving will be viewed favourably
  • Informaticians

Candidates will work on the design and development of several web based applications to bring together various datasets including patient medical records, family history, clinical results and genomic anaylses, all of which are used to aid in disease diagnosis and treatment. You will be responsible for delivery of feature implementation by engaging directly with users to gather feature requirements through to design, implementation, testing and deployment.The ideal candidate will have

  1. Strong experience in software development
  2. A solid understanding of basic design principles
  3. Previous experience in a healthcare or research environment would be highly beneficial.
