- Do you have a PhD in Biophysics, Applied Mathematics, Computational Biochemistry, Collaborative Intelligence?
- Do you have experience working at the intersection of Computer Science and Behavioural Science?
- Join the Protein and Molecular Modelling team within CSIRO Manufacturing in this 3-year postdoctoral role
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.
The CERC Fellow will be part of the collaborative intelligence (CINTEL) Future Science Platform (FSP) developing tools and processes to integrate artificial and human intelligence in the context of biomolecular modelling.
An outstanding opportunity exists for a motivated and skilled researcher to join the Protein and Molecular Modelling (PMM) team in the Manufacturing Business Unit. PMM is a team of multidisciplinary researchers that develop and use methods of applied mathematics, molecular modelling and molecular biology to enable discovery in computational chemistry, medicinal chemistry, biophysics and materials science.
The CERC Fellow will conduct research and development of a dynamic framework of collaborative intelligence to support projects in structural biology and biomolecular modelling. An experienced researcher with excellent skills in computational structural biology, molecular biology and ML/AI methods with demonstrated appreciation of human-computer interaction factors will be required.
The CERC Fellow will need to have experience using a range of biomolecular modelling and bioinformatics software and have a sound knowledge of structural biology and molecular biology to inform decisions about protein biophysics and crystallography. The CERC Fellow will need to have experience in ML/AI methods in the context of biochemistry or bioinformatics and be familiar with all the protein crystallography data repositories and formats. Experience in experimental molecular biology will be a plus, but technical assistance and scientific advice will be available for experimental aspects of the work.
