Position overview

The ANU College of Science (CoS) comprises: the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the Research School of Biology, the Research School of Chemistry, the Research School of Earth Science, the Fenner School of Environment and Society, the Mathematical Sciences Institute, the Research School of Physics and Engineering, and the Centre for the Public Awareness of Science.  Staff and students within the ANU College of Science conduct research and delivers a research-led education program that encompasses the entire breadth of the sciences, supported by extensive international networks and by world-class facilities.  The College has a strong tradition of research excellence that has fostered distinguished Nobel Laureates and Kyoto Prize winners and that trains scientific leaders in disciplines in which the ANU is consistently ranked in the top twenty in the world.

The Plant Structural Immunology laboratory at ANU (led by Dr Simon Williams) has a (3) year postdoctoral fellow position available to understand the structural basis of plant innate immunity and fungal pathogenesis. The Plant Structural Immunology laboratory is a recently established laboratory within the Research School of Biology focussed on understanding at a mechanistic level how pathogens cause disease. The appointed postdoctoral fellow will undertake research to understand the interactions between plant pathogenic fungi and crops of agricultural importance. The studies will primarily utilise structural biology, protein biophysics and biochemistry approaches to study, in molecular detail, the interactions between fungal virulence (effector) proteins and plant defence proteins. It is anticipated that this work will lay the foundation for future biotechnology strategies to help control plant diseases.
