Salary range: A$72,358 (plus 15.4% superannuation)
ANSTO is one of Australia’s foremost scientific research and development organisations, focused
on delivering the benefits of nuclear science to the Australian community.
The Bragg Institute is the research centre for the construction and use of neutron-scattering
instrumentation at the new OPAL reactor close to Sydney. The Scientists of The Bragg Institute
are renowned for being the leading group of neutron scatterers in the Southern Hemisphere.
We are seeking a recent PhD graduate in chemistry, biology, materials science or a related area
with a strong innovation focus, good communication skills and a proven publication record who can
work well within small cross-disciplinary teams and can collaborate strongly with other research
groups. Experience in the application of small-angle neutron or X-ray scattering methods including
data analysis and an interest in community outreach are essential.
The fellow will join ANSTO’s Food Science Project and work in a major initiative applying a
multidisciplinary approach to understand the structure and dynamics in food-based systems. The
current interests of the group relate to, but are not limited to, proteins and polysaccharides. The
fellow will interact closely with collaborators both in Australia and internationally and will have the
opportunity to use the state-of-the-art SANS instrument at OPAL, Quokka.
The successful Post Doctoral Fellow will interact closely with national and international
collaborators and will have the opportunity to publish in high impact journals, present their work at
international conferences and to access major facilities through existing networks of collaborative
