The Opportunity

The del Monte-Nieto group is interested in the study of the molecular mechanisms and developmental processes orchestrating normal heart development in embryos in order to better understand the developmental causes leading to congenital heart disease, and the process of cardiac regeneration.

An exciting opportunity exists for a post-doctoral research fellow to join the group to examine particular areas of research on developmental biology with a strong focus on single cell omics and spatial transcriptomics during the formation of the heart in developing mouse embryos.

The particular area of research is the study of the cellular behaviours and molecular regulation controlling heart development. The main role of the Research fellow will be to develop the detection methods for molecular and cellular behavioural analysis with special focus on the development of single cell omics and spatial transcriptomics protocols in the lab. This technology will be applied to the study of the different developmental processes of interest in the lab including ventricular and valve development. Therefore, the candidate must have experience in cardiac developmental biology, molecular biology, histology, animal handling, embryo dissections and developmental biology techniques, but also be proficient in single cell omics and bioinformatics (see below for specific skills).

We are seeking someone with experience in developmental biology and molecular biology techniques and with proficiency in single cell omics and spatial transcriptomics techniques and bioinformatics.

Ideally, you will have a doctoral qualification preferably in molecular biology and developmental biology with experience in heart development and single cell omics.

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

At Monash University, we are committed to be a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Your application must address the selection criteria. For instructions on how to apply, please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
