About Baker IDI
Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute is an independent, internationally renowned medical research facility. Our work extends from the laboratory to wide-scale community studies with a focus on diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
About the Role
We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic Research Officer to join our Metabolomics Laboratory. Metabolomics is the systematic study of the unique metabolite (small-molecule) fingerprints of biological systems. The Metabolomics Laboratory uses “state of the art” tandem mass spectrometry to obtain metabolic profiles (primarily lipids and fats) from the blood stream and in model systems to develop new approaches to early diagnosis, risk assessment and therapeutic monitoring of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
This position will play a key role in the development and implementation of statistical approaches to characterise the dyslipidemia associated with diabetes and cardiovascular disease, create and validate predictive models of diabetes risk and integrate lipidomic data with gene expression and genetic variation profiles to further characterise the pathogenesis of disease. This position will be required to work closely with a number of the senior investigators on this project to pursue different aspects of the statistical analysis, multivariate model development and validation.
In this role you will be expected to perform the following key objectives:
Skills and Experience
The successful candidate will possess academic knowledge of statistics as evidenced by coursework taken at honours or postgraduate level.
Experience in one or more of the following areas would also be highly regarded:
Application of statistics in a biomedical/health science related field. Demonstrated expertise in MATLAB.
Programming skills in R/Java
The position offers flexibility and generous salary packaging options. Remuneration will be commensurate with the successful candidate’s
qualifications and experience.
