Postdoctoral position in cardiac cell systems biology

The Cell Structure and Mechanobiology group and the Systems Biology Laboratory at the University of Melbourne are looking for a highly motivated and qualified candidate to develop biophysically and structurally detailed computational models of calcium signaling in cardiomyocytes. Under the guidance of Prof Edmund Crampin and Dr. Vijay Rajagopal, the individual will work in an interdisciplinary team to develop mechanistic insights into the role of subcellular calcium dynamics in diseases such as cardiac hypertrophy and diabetic cardiomyopathy. 
Required Skills and Experience 
  • PhD in computational biology, mathematics, biomedical engineering or related fields.
  • Highly developed skills in computational modeling and/or systems biology
  • Good knowledge and skills in languages, such as R, Python, C++.
  • Evidence of publications in influential, high-impact journals.
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team.
Familiarity with one or more of the following would be a plus: finite element modelling, stochastic processes in ion-channel gating, cardiomyocyte physiology.


Interested candidates are requested to send their current CV with a cover letter and a short statement of research interests to
