The Opportunity

The Monash Bioinformatics Platform is an emerging team that provides high-end bioinformatics support and training as well as facilitating collaboration across Monash University’s research groups and facilities. They are embarking on creating a node at the Alfred Hospital to provide strong support and collaboration from their hub at Clayton Campus. This new node is set to grow quickly in the near future, and the Research Fellow would join the Monash Bioinformatics Platform at a crucial time. This role will be part of an ongoing push to build the bioinformatics capacity at the Alfred Precinct.

You will be expected to spend the majority their time at the Central Clinical School based at the Alfred Hospital, however will also work with the Monash Bioinformatics Platform alongside a team of expert bioinformaticians at Clayton on a regular basis.

As the successful candidate you will:

  • contribute to the preparation or, where appropriate, individual preparation of research proposal submissions to external funding bodies
  • have involvement in professional activities including, subject to availability of funds, attendance at conferences and seminars in the field of expertise
  • conduct research either as a member of a team or independently and produce conference and seminar papers and publications from that research

You will have:

  • Proven experience in biological research, including genomic analysis, and a solid track record of publishing to a high standard
  • Extensive experience with R, in particular various visualisations of genomic data, and experience working in a Unix environment
  • Demonstrated experience in handling large data sets and analysis of high-throughput experimental data and analysis and integration of RNA-seq and/or ChiP-seq

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
