Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bacteriophages mediated mobilisation

The Alternative

  • Do you may have a PhD in a related self-discipline space, corresponding to Microbiology (with a concentrate on bacterial/viral genomics), Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics or related?
  • Thrilling alternative to work on new science that addresses methods connectivity, predictive frameworks and deliberate Interventions by way of the appliance of multi-omic instruments 
  • Be part of CSIRO – Australia’s main scientific analysis organisation! 

CSIRO Early Analysis Profession (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships present alternatives to scientists and engineers who’ve accomplished their doctorate and have lower than three years of related postdoctoral work expertise. These fellowships intention to develop the subsequent era of future leaders of the innovation system.

The place will probably be a part of the Microbiomes for One Methods Well being – Future Science Platform (FSP). CSIRO FSPs deal with new scientific challenges for Australia.

The Microbiome FSP is growing new understanding of microbiome connectivity throughout the setting to human continuum and the way system perturbations affect on microbiome performance, variety and methods well being.  A key goal is to seize larger profit from microbiome interactions by way of extra informative and predictive frameworks for performance and by focused interventions. Capability to immediately manipulate microbiomes throughout hosts and environments will present new alternatives for bio-based options to be developed and utilized to enhance host and environmental well being and for elevated profit to crops, animals and people.

The portfolio of analysis inside the Microbiome FSP is focussed round new science that deal with; methods connectivity, predictive frameworks and deliberate Interventions by way of the appliance of multi-omic instruments to analyse level and system stage change and related measures of performance each inside and throughout interconnected biomes. This consists of integration and evaluation of multi-layered information and use of empirical and/or statistical modelling.  The science portfolio of the FSP spans a number of CSIRO Enterprise Models that deal with key focal areas that embody; i) Atmosphere, Soil & Plant Well being, ii) Meals Chain & Manufacturing ii) Weight-reduction plan, Intestine and Well being and iv) Optimized Business & City Processes.
