scattering methods including
data analysis and an interest in community outreach are essential.

The fellow will join ANSTO's Food Science Project and work in a major
initiative applying a
multidisciplinary approach to understand the structure and dynamics in
food-based systems. The
current interests of the group relate to, but are not limited to,
proteins and polysaccharides. The
fellow will interact closely with collaborators both in Australia and
internationally and will have the
opportunity to use the state-of-the-art SANS instrument at OPAL, Quokka.

The successful Post Doctoral Fellow will interact closely with national
