    The Opportunity

    The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is looking to recruit a Research Fellow to join its research team, within the Drug Delivery, Disposition and Dynamics theme. The research fellow will work on two projects focussed on drug delivery to lymph to improve the treatment of metabolic disease and organ failure in acute and critical illnesses, including infections such as acute pancreatitis and COVID-19. Data from this project will inform the design of future definitive clinical trials and commercialisation, which are necessary for improved clinical outcome. The Research Fellow will particularly work on strategies to deliver therapeutics into the lymph, confirm the lymph uptake and pharmacokinetics of the developed delivery strategies in rodent models and efficacy in disease models. Patient tissue samples will also be used to confirm lymphatic changes seen in disease.

    .The Research Fellow will have:

  • A PhD in Pharmaceutical Science or a closely related field
  • Experience with standard molecular biology techniques, flow cytometry and immnunohistochemistry plus confocal microscopy
  • Experience with in vivo studies in rodents such as disease models and/or cannulation of blood or lymphatic vessels for blood or lymph sampling
  • Experience with analytical methods such as LC-MS/MS to quantify drugs in biological fluids
  • This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

    At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. This position at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check and a satisfactory Police Check.

    Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
