 Dear Colleague,

A new imaging scientist position in Australia

*Imaging Scientist
Terms: Full time, Fixed term (2 years)

·    Outstanding opportunity to work on cutting edge biomedical imaging
instrument for translational imaging.

·    Develop interdisciplinary skills by working alongside with imaging
scientists, biologists, biomedical and clinical researchers.

·    Contribute to the growing *international cohort of Imaging Scientist
<>* and work at the *frontiers of imaging
science in biomedicine.

*Applications close: 30 Apr 2021 11:55:00 PM AUS Eastern Standard Time*

*Position overview* ANU has an international reputation for research and
education relevant to the health and well-being of the population of
Australia, as well as that of the developing world. This is achieved
through discovery research, applied research in health service settings,
research-led teaching in health and medical sciences, and the translation
of research findings into practice and policy.

*Optical Biofluidics Imaging Group (O-BIG)
<>* comprises of a team of
multi-disciplinary imaging scientists (optics, biochemistry, computing)
that develops and hosts a range of cutting-edge volumetric bioimaging
optical tools, supported by a series of national competitive funds (ARC,
NHMRC, ACRF). Each 4D optical microscopy tools are tailored to investigate
biological fluid flow in a biological relevant models (microfluidics,
organiods and mice model). For example, our Raster Adaptive Optics (RAO,
patent pending- *2019904929
formed the basis for 2x National in vivo Imaging Initiatives (ACRF InCite
and ARC-LIEF) to study trafficking immune and cancer cells in ECM in mice
models. Our COSI system is used by National Platelet Referral and Research
Centre of flowing blood platelets for the early diagnosis of embolus
formation using microchips. Our methods are published in high impact method
journals such as Nature Protocols, Lab On Chip, Biophys J, Cell, Biomed Opt
Exp, Blood Advances, Sci Rep, Advanced Biosyst as well as specialised
physical sciences journals such Opt Lett, Physical Review A, Opt Express,
App Phys Lett etc

*The Imaging Scientist will be based within the John Curtin School of
Medical Research and reports to the Head of the Optical Biofluidics Imaging
Group (O-BIG) and supports a range of activities for scientific research,
teaching and industry partners. The core responsibility will include (but
not limited to): daily operation and development of advanced optical
imaging instruments, preparation of microfluidics devices, management and
liaison with research and teaching staffs. *This will be an exciting role
suited to a dynamic individual who is keen to develop knowledge in imaging
science, contribute to biomedicine and be at the forefront of field of
imaging science. This position is for two years fixed term with a
possibility of extension.
