- Do you have a PhD in a relevant discipline area, such as microbiology, biotechnology, molecular biology, systems biology, biochemistry or similar?
- Exciting opportunity to develop and lead the experimental program and deliverable on multi-omics for microbiome functionality for bioremediation and waste treatment
- Join CSIRO – Australia’s leading scientific research organisation!
CSIRO Early Research Career (CERC) Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctorate and have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience. These fellowships aim to develop the next generation of future leaders of the innovation system.
The position will be part of the CSIRO’s Microbiomes for One Systems Health - Future Science Platform (FSP). CSIRO FSPs work on frontier science that underpins innovation to support and develop industries for Australia.
The Microbiome FSP is developing new understanding of microbiome connectivity across the environment to human continuum and how system perturbations impact on microbiome functionality, diversity and systems health. A key objective is to capture greater benefit from microbiome interactions through more informative and predictive frameworks for functionality and by targeted interventions. Capacity to directly manipulate microbiomes across hosts and environments will provide new opportunities for bio-based solutions to be developed and applied to improve host and environmental health and for increased benefit to plants, animals and humans.
The portfolio of research within the Microbiome FSP is focussed on new science that address; systems connectivity, predictive frameworks and deliberate Interventions through the application of multi-omic tools to analyse point and system level change and associated measures of functionality both within and across interconnected biomes. This includes integration and analysis of multi-layered data and use of empirical and/or statistical modelling. The science portfolio of the FSP spans multiple CSIRO Business Units that address key focal areas; i) Environment, Soil & Plant Health, ii) Food Chain & Production ii) Diet, Gut and Health and iv) Optimized Industry & Urban Processes.
