Postdoc position available!

The Ryan Lab is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work on project(s) related to mitochondrial biology and disease. The project can be fitted to the individual’s expertise - whether it is structural biology, advanced microscopy, animal models, quantitative proteomics, cell biology or biochemistry. Only Australian citizens or residents are able to apply (sorry the conservative government is not being helpful - but if you have your own fellowship then it’s no issue). Please forward your CV including expertise and a motivation letter by e-mail to Mike Ryan.

Honours & Masters Students

Honours student places are available in the Ryan lab.

Experienced and friendly lab members give students daily supervision in the lab. We welcome your visit to the lab where you can meet the team.

Please contact Mike to arrange an appointment and include your academic transcript.
