• An exciting opportunity exists for two highly motivated Research Officers (Postdocs) to join Research laboratories at MCRI . One of these roles will work in Blood Disease modelling undertaking experiments aimed at manipulating the development of leukemogenic blood cells using pluripotent stem cells as a tractable model system. The other Research Officer position will be for immune related work working on the generation of B lymphoid lineage cells from pluripotent stem cells (PSCs).The Research Officers will design and conduct laboratory-based experiments within the Group’s aligned research programs as well as supporting bioinformatics approaches, contributing to the mentoring and training of junior research team members, overseeing the analysis of animal transplantation work and developing screening strategies to establish independent lines of inquiry. This work forms part of a greater research endeavour across three laboratories investigating the use of artificially derived blood cells for research and medical applications.  The Blood Disease, Blood Development and Immune Development laboratories form are part of reNEW: The Novo Nordisk Center for Stem Cell Medicine. The successful candidate will be expected to design and conduct a range of laboratory-based experiments within the Group’s aligned research programs, support bioinformatics approaches, contribute to the mentoring and training of junior research team members, oversee the analysis of animal transplantation work and develop independent lines of inquiry. Any specific questions related to this position should be directed to Prof Andrew Elefanty at [email protected] (Blood Development) and Prof Ed Stanley at [email protected] (Immune Development). For additional information go to https://career10.successfactors.com/career?career%5fns=job%5flisting&company=C0007531036P&navBarLevel=JOB%5fSEARCH&rcm%5fsite%5flocale=en%5fGB&career_job_req_id=37556&selected_lang=en_GB&jobAlertController_jobAlertId=&jobAlertController_jobAlertName=&browserTimeZone=Australia/Melbourne&_s.crb=NOc8AMm3LBtj4W9S8VPVqsVT8dLqz1ydTWSYWZk4cBw%3d
