¿Sabes jugar con CRISPR/Cas9? Pelotazo laboral en Australia

CSIRO is currently seeking to recruit a research scientist to advance our understanding of the use of CRISPR/Cas9 gene drives to manage agricultural pests (i.e. insects, pathogens and weeds). The Research Scientist will be responsible for leading the development of a modelling platform to consider how pest biology, spatial and temporal deployment strategies and management scenarios influence the short-term spread of gene drives and longer-term durability within pest populations. We would particularly welcome candidates with a research interest in mathematical modelling of population and genetic dynamics of pest organisms, and in the application of ecological and evolutionary principles to solving applied problems in agricultural landscapes.
Based in Canberra, Australia, this 3 year, fixed term position offers the opportunity to take a lead role in shaping the science around the use of gene drives to develop sustainable and efficient pest control solutions. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Luke Barrett (luke.barrett@csiro.auluke.barrett@csiro.au>) with any queries.
Location: Canberra, ACT
Salary: $92K - $100K plus up to 15.4% superannuation
