Postdoctoral Research Fellow - NMR-metabonomics/Systems Biology, School of Chemistry And Molecular Biosciences, The University of Queensland, Brisbane Australia

Excellent Opportunity for early career or more established researchers to work in a stimulating and challenging research team environment

The School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences (SCMB) combines the disciplines of Chemistry, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Parasitology into a single academic unit. The School has modern research laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment and research infrastructure including access to an extensive array of ultra-high field NMR spectrometers, including 500, 600, 750 and 900 MHz spectrometers. The School includes over 50 academic staff who are widely published internationally and have extensive research backgrounds.


The Role

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will work in a team supervised by Dr Horst Schirra. The team uses NMR-based metabonomics and systems biology approaches to study the link between genotype and phenotype in health and disease. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will use NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and bioinformatics to study the link between genotype and phenotype in an obese mouse model on a genetic, metabolomic, and fluxomic level with the aim of developing a systems biology computational model of physiological changes that integrates data from all three experimental project streams. The project is funded by an Australian Research Council grant and a collaboration between SCMB, the Institute for Molecular Bioscience and the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology. Further details on the project are available from Dr Horst Schirra (

The Person

The applicant should hold a PhD in the area of NMR spectroscopy, Bioinformatics/Biostatistics, or an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training. The applicant should have the ability to plan, execute and interpret experiments independently; the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues; high level inter-personal and communication skills; and aptitude for research as demonstrated by publications in high quality international journals.


This is a full-time, fixed term appointment initially for 1 year at Research Academic Level A. The remuneration package will be in the range $64,063 – $68,768 p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of 17% (total package will be in the range $74,953 - $80,458 p.a.).
