Leading edge Research
ANSTO is one of Australias foremost scientific research and development organisations, focused on delivering the benefits of nuclear science to the Australian community.
The Bragg Institute is the research center for the construction and use of neutron-scattering instrumentation at the new OPAL reactor close to Sydney. The Scientists of The Bragg Institute are renowned for being the leading group of neutron scatterers in the Southern Hemisphere.
We are currently seeking a post-doctoral fellow to study the Lateral Phase Separation in Lipid Mixtures, the Effects if Sugars and Mechanisms of Cryoprotection of Cell Membranes. The aim of this study is to understand fundamental process involved in the formation of lipid rafts particularly in the context of cryo- and anhydro- biology, where simple solute molecules (sugars) protect membranes from deleterious phase transitions with varying temperature and moisture content.
The successful candidate will utilise neutron and x-ray scattering instrumentation including the reflectometer Platypus, the SANS instrument Quokka, and chemical deuteration facilities within ANSTOs Bragg Institute to produce high quality science.
You will have a PhD in Neutron or x-ray scattering and experience particularly in grazing incidence/off-specular techniques, as well as an established publication track record in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
To be eligible for appointment, applicants will require a security and medical assessment.
