  • Take your career in exciting, rewarding directions
Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You'll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you'll need to publish your work. We're a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what's expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

The Opportunity

The Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) comprises the largest and most experienced group of pharmaceutical scientists in Australia, working across all disciplines of drug discovery. MIPS scientists are engaged in exciting translational research projects on G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) targets across a range of therapeutic areas, including endocrinology.

We are seeking an enthusiastic scientist with experience in protein expression and purification, biochemistry and/or molecular pharmacology to enrich discovery programs for a key endocrinological drug target.

This represents an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic research team working on novel strategies to improve drug discovery for an important endocrinological-related target. MIPS is a world-class, multi-disciplinary organisation and the Drug Discovery Biology group is at the forefront of GPCR biology. The successful candidate will require a demonstrated ability to apply innovative approaches to the study of drug targets. Previous experience in GPCR-related research will be highly valued.

In this position, you will be required to:
  • Express and purify GPCRs for structural biology projects; generate recombinant cell lines expressing mutant receptors; perform GPCR cell-based signalling assays; use molecular biology and pharmacology skills to undertake receptor structure-function studies
  • Analyse and report data in a timely fashion including reporting to project leaders and collaborators, writing manuscripts, archiving and presentation at lab meetings
  • Collaborate with other groups within MIPS to progress discovery projects
You will bring with you:
  • BSc / MSc or equivalent in pharmacology, biochemistry, structural biology or related subject
  • GPCR or closely related discipline experience
  • Experience in one or more of: protein expression and purification, protein mutagenesis and structure-function studies, cell-based high-throughput screening assays and data analysis;
  • Experience in mammalian cell culture, molecular pharmacology, molecular biology
  • Analytical thinking, expert data analysis and critical problem solving skills
  • Excellent time management skills and ability to work independently
  • Fluency in written and oral English
This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
