Brief position description:
The Synthetic Biology FSP (SynBioFSP) is developing a research portfolio which will be spread across CSIRO and a wide variety of partner organisations (universities, industry, NGOs, other research organisations, etc.), both national and international. The research portfolio is dynamic and will evolve over time on the basis of strategy and performance. Research projects will sit within one or more priority Application Domains (Environment & Biocontrol, Chemicals & Fibres, Organelles & Endosymbionts) and one or more Science Domains (Integrative Biological Modelling, Engineering Novel Biological Components, Assembling Novel Biosystems, Maximising Impact). The SynBio FSP will embed a social and behavioural science agenda to address issues around social licence to operate.
In this position, you will provide systems biology and data modelling support across two research projects, one on the in-vitro resynthesis of the lichen symbiosis and the other on the design of biorthogonal redox metabolic pathways in yeast and E. coli.
