Post Doctoral Fellowship

Food Structure and Dynamics

2 year term (with possible 1 year extension)

Salary: A$72,358 (plus 15.4% superannuation)


The Bragg Institute at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation is the research centre for the construction and use of neutron-scattering instrumentation at the new OPAL reactor close to Sydney.


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 activities 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.


To be eligible for appointment, applicants will require a security and medical assessment.
