Join our team of exceptionally motivated scientists as a
Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Eynon Group.

The Opportunity

The Research Fellow aims to advance our knowledge in the areas of Epigenetics, Ageing, and Exercise. The successful candidate will collaborate with our research team to investigate the impact of epigenetics on ageing and exercise adaptations, as well as explore sex-based variations in response to exercise.

As a Research Fellow, you will play a crucial role in our ongoing research projects and be responsible for conducting research either collaboratively or independently, with limited supervision. This includes generating conference papers, seminar papers, and publications based on your research findings. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to engage in professional activities, such as attending conferences and seminars related to your area of expertise.

This role will suit a highly motivated researcher with an honours or masters degree with progress towards a doctorate or a doctoral qualification in the relevant discipline or a closely related field with experience in bioinformatics (preferably DNA methylation, RNA-seq, or proteomics), and in R coding, with the capability and willingness to learn new packages as appropriate, will be highly regarded.

Diversity is one of our greatest strengths at Monash. We encourage applications from First Nations people, culturally and linguistically diverse people, people with disabilities, neurodiverse people, and people of all genders, sexualities, and age groups.
