At UTS, the concepts of equity and social justice are key to our core and purpose – we are recognised widely as supporting inclusivity and valuing diversity. Cited as a WGEA Employer of Choice since the inception of the award, we are now among the first Australian institutions to receive the Athena SWAN Bronze Accreditation for our commitment to action addressing gender equity in the STEMM disciplines.

The Faculty of Science aims to ensure equitable representation in all occupational categories and in all levels of its workforce. In an effort to eliminate employment barriers we especially encourage applications from suitably qualified individuals from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, from individuals with primary carer responsibilities, from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates and from women.
The Translational Oncology Group is looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate / Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join us working in 3D bio-printing to study therapeutic options for women with ovarian cancer. This position is jointly funded by grants from the Cancer Council NSW and the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) to identify new therapies for treatment resistant ovarian cancer and to develop functional assays to align with molecular profiling to predict which therapies women with ovarian cancer are likely to respond to.
The successful applicant will have:
- a PhD awarded (or in assessement), preferably in laboratory-based cancer research spanning cell and molecular biology techniques,
- Direct experience in 3D bio-printing is desirable but not essential,
- Extensive cell/tissue culture experience is essential,
- Demonstrated experience supervising students would be advantageous.
