Bioinformatics Systems Administrator (Support)

The University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience is a leading global research institute. IMB was established in 2000 as UQ's first research institute and is the cornerstone of one of the largest bioscience research precincts in Australia.

The role

The successful appointee will become part of the IMB Genomics of Development and Disease Division using next generation sequencing technologies to understand the genome and genetic disorders.  This will include provision of support in the design, installation and ongoing maintenance of networks, servers and services exclusively for the IMB Genomics Facility.

The person

Applicants should possess a degree in IT or have an equivalent combination of relevant real-world experience and/or education/vendor training.  Progress towards or completion of postgraduate qualifications will be highly regarded.  Prior experience in: managing a Linux-based operating system, working in a large  enterprise environment; working and adhering to best practice standards within a Data Centre and managing/using HPC clusters is essential.  You should also be proactive and enthusiastic with an ability to work collaboratively with team colleagues and with minimal supervision.

SeniorResearch Officer/Fellow - UQ

The University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience is a leading global research institute. IMB was established in 2000 as UQ's flagship research institute and is the cornerstone of one of the largest bioscience research precincts in Australia.

The successful appointee will be involved in a Synthetic Biology project aimed at the development of protein-based artificial allosteric receptors, signal transducers and their effectors. The purpose of the project is to expand a tool box of modular signalling molecules for construction of synthetic signalling pathways in vitro and in vivo. Further the developed molecules will be used for creation of novel analytic and diagnostic applications.

Research Officer/Senior Research Officer - UQ

The University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience is a leading global research institute. IMB was established in 2000 as UQ's flagship research institute and is the cornerstone of one of the largest bioscience research precincts in Australia.

The position will be focussed on developing novel approaches which utilise next generation sequencing technologies to accurately genotype variable number tandem repeats; and subsequently applying these approaches to investigate the genome dynamics of tandem repeats in twin-quartets.  The role will involve application of sample-preparation techniques; use of Illumina HiSeq machines and bioinformatics analyses of datasets generated.  The post-holder will work collaboratively with scientists from the Institute for Molecular Biosciences, the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, the Mater Hospital and Imperial College London, who are experts in the fields of next generation sequencing and population genetics.
