Postdoc position available – molecular proteomics

Position title: Postdoctoral Researcher (Research Officer)
Employer: Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute
Laboratory: Molecular Proteomics
Supervisor/Manager: A/Prof David Greening
Date: January 2024


The Molecular Proteomics laboratory is located in the Systems Biology Domain of the Baker Institute. The laboratory explores intercellular signalling and apply advanced omics in the context of the heart and circulation. In particular, our research aims to understand cell signalling through extracellular vesicles and nanovesicles as a therapeutic strategy and integrate multi-disciplinary technologies to understand cardiac remodelling and its repair. The laboratory develops and uses cutting-edge proteomic and functional approaches, enabling us to understand the cardiac proteome landscape and to identify new deliverable therapeutic targets. A key strategy for achieving the research objectives of the laboratory is to leverage recent developments in circulating extracellular vesicles, nanoparticles, data science, particularly in the context of proteomic technologies and cardiac biology.
