Microscopy Australia is always on the lookout for outstanding professionals.

Research Fellow and Application Scientist in Aberration Corrected Transmission Electron Microscopy

Location: Monash University Clayton Campus, Melbourne / VIC
Salary Package: $101,130 – $120,093 pa Level B (plus 17% employer superannuation)
Terms: 3-year fixed-term appointment
Applications close: 20th June

This position will conduct high quality research in the development and application of aberration-corrected S/TEM techniques and will provide high level expertise, training and research support to the research community in S/TEM and associated techniques.

The Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy has a powerful suite of instrumentation, including a double-aberration corrected Titan3 80-300kV FEG-TEM with pixelated detector and is currently installing a Thermo Fisher Spectra Phi, an ultrahigh spatial and energy resolution 30keV to 300keV S/TEM with unique electron-optical elements and multiple fast detectors.


Senior Electron Microscopist

Location: Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP), CSIRO, Geelong VIC
Salary: AU$115k – AU$135k per annum, plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Terms: Indefinite, full-time
Residency: Australian Citizens only
Applications close: 30th June

As a Senior Electron Microscopist at the Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP), you will apply transmission electron microscopy to identify viruses and elucidate the mechanisms by which they cause disease. You will be a key member of a multi-disciplinary team focussing on the pathogenesis of infectious disease in animal systems and contributing to diagnostic investigations of pathogen outbreaks. Working under strict microsecurity regulations, your research will be carried out in the high containment facility at the ACDP.

Managing the day-to-day operations of the electron microscopy facility; you will lead and mentor staff in TEM techniques and undertake impactful research projects of all sizes.  Working with trusted collaborator networks and drawing on your expertise in electron microscopy, you will design and apply innovative techniques to the investigation of viral disease pathogenesis.

Ideally, we are seeking an expert in TEM with experience in cryo-electron tomography (cryoET) and strong skills in biological microscopy, but given the current climate we may consider the appointment of a promising early career scientist at the appropriate salary level (AU$100k – AU$108k per annum).  As such, we will accept applications from individuals within this early career stage and, if required, will review duties and criteria accordingly.
