An opportunity currently exists for an experienced Research Fellow to be part of the Mowry Group at QBI, whose primary research goal is to identify and functionally characterize susceptibility genes for schizophrenia and related disorders. One prime area of interest is whole exome sequencing. The group has just been awarded significant Australian Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funding (2014-2016) for genetic analysis of de novo and inherited protein-coding sequence variation in schizophrenia.

The successful applicant will be expected to be involved in this project, and generally to provide expert advice to QBI staff and researchers from its collaborating groups. Together with the Group Leader, the appointee will help develop the strategic plan for the direction of the overall research program. Using a high-level knowledge of research issues in the field, and incorporating current advances in knowledge of schizophrenia genetics, the successful applicant will be responsible for applying advanced statistical methods to the analyses of data in the genetics of schizophrenia.


Applicants must hold a PhD in a relevant field and have extensive postdoctoral experience with demonstrated evidence of research productivity, including publications and conference presentations. The ability to collaborate successfully with international researchers and external agencies to develop co-operative research initiatives his deemed necessary to succeed in this position.
