RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise. Our
mission is to help shape the world through research, innovation,
teaching and engagement, and to create transformative experiences for
our students, getting them ready for life and work. The School of
Engineering comprises the disciplines of Aerospace Engineering and
Aviation; Chemical and Environmental Engineering; Electrical and
Biomedical Engineering; Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering;
Manufacturing, Materials and Mechatronics Engineering; Mechanical and
Automotive Engineering; and Civil and Infrastructure Engineering.
The Role and Your Responsibilities
The Postdoctoral Research Officer position is available in the
Australian Research Council supported Discovery project "Tuning the
properties of biomedical nanomaterials for controlled biological
responses". The Postdoctoral Research Officer will work under the
supervision of the project's Chief Investigator Professor Irene
Yarovsky to model complex physicochemical phenomena at the nano - bio
interface via multiscale computer simulations in order to optimize the
molecular design of novel nanomaterials for biomedical applications in
collaboration with the project's Partner Investigator Professor Molly
M. Stevens at Imperial College London, UK.
Skills & Experience Required
You will have proven record of applying and/or developing computational
molecular modelling techniques ranging from the first principles
calculations to classical all-atom and coarse-grain simulations, and,
ideally, a combination thereof. Furthermore, your demonstrated
experience in molecular simulation of nanostructures and/or biological
molecules and assemblies (proteins, DNA, lipid membranes) will be
essential to your success in this role. Experience with nano-bio
interface modelling is highly desirable.
A recent PhD degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science or
a related discipline is required.
