Postdoctoral Fellowships in Synthetic Biology


  • Various locations around Australia
  • 3 year Fellowships
  • Join one of CSIRO's exciting new Future Science Platforms

Applications are now open for the CSIRO Synthetic Biology Future Science Fellowships, an initiative of CSIRO’s Synthetic Biology Future Science Platform (SynBio FSP).

The Future Science Fellowships scheme aims to attract outstanding national and international early- to mid-career postdoctoral researchers (equivalent to Australian Academic Levels A and B, or in exceptional circumstances, Level C) to expand Australian research capacity in synthetic biology.

A key element of the SynBio FSP is establishment of a collaborative community of practice extending across CSIRO and Australia more broadly, and linking into international efforts in the field.

Fellowships will be hosted at a Host Organisation (usually an Australian University, but other Australian research organisations may also be eligible) and will be a partnership between the Fellow, CSIRO, and the Host Organisation.

Further information and application instructions for the Fellowships are available at:

Applications must be submitted by 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time, Monday 5th March 2018.

We strongly encourage women, people of Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent, and other minority groups to apply.
