Closing Date: 15 March 2021
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research scientist post in Melbourne, to join a newly funded research group within the Cancer Cell Biology Program. The research focuses on understanding the mechanisms regulating the growth of neural stem cell derived tumours in Drosophila. We are part of a vibrant fly community working alongside 400 cancer biologists located in the centre of Melbourne.
Funding is available for 3 years, starting July 2012. Candidates should have a PhD in developmental biology or cell biology, proven experience in molecular biology, immunohistochemistry and/or biochemistry, experience in fly genetics is also desired. For more information and application, please write to Dr Louise Cheng at email@example.com
