POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE IN SYNTHETIC INORGANIC CHEMISTRY

We are seeking a highly-motivated postdoctoral fellow in synthetic inorganic chemistry to work on Australian Research Council funded projects with Professor Trevor Hambley and Dr Elizabeth New.

You will develop new platinum-containing complexes to act as pro-drugs, and to aid in understanding of platinum drug metabolism. You must possess a PhD in synthetic inorganic chemistry. A strong background in inorganic synthesis is essential, and strong preference will be given to those applicants with experience in biological studies, as supported by a strong publication record. Experience in the preparation of platinum complexes, and in application of metal complexes to biological systems, would be a distinct advantage.

This is an opportunity to be involved in innovative research that will revolutionise the use of platinum complexes in chemotherapy.

The position is available from March 2015. The position is full-time fixed term for two years and subject to the completion of a satisfactory probation period for new appointees. Further offers may be available subject to funding, need and performance.
