Prof. Jamie Rossjohn FAA FAHMS FLSW FMedSci, ARC Australian Laureate Fellow & Head, Infection and Immunity Program, Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, seeks talented postdoctoral researchers to join his research group to work in the area of protective and aberrant T cell immunity, at Monash University, Clayton campus, Melbourne, Australia.
The Rossjohn laboratory has provided profound insight into the structural bases underpinning peptide and lipid-mediated immunity (e.g. Nature 2007, 2010, 2012 & 2017, Immunity 2009, 2011, Nature Immunol. 2012, 2015 & 2016), and seeks to build upon these initial findings in the context of protective, tumour and aberrant immunity. The laboratory is funded by grants from the NHMRC, ARC and the Wellcome Trust.

The applicants should hold a PhD, have a proven track record in the field of protein chemistry and structural biology, and be sufficiently self-motivated to pioneer new areas of immune recognition. Candidates with a promising track record in the relevant areas and a proven publication record in international journals are encouraged to apply.
Appointment will be made at a level appropriate to the successful applicant’s qualifications, experience and in accordance with classification standards for each level.
