CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellowship in long-term infection control in the context of medical devices


The Postdoctoral Fellow will answer key scientific questions associated with the progression of medical device related infections, identify opportunities for long-term infection control and develop effective technologies that can be applied in the context of medical devices. Apart from establishing a comprehensive understanding of the factors that govern long-term host-pathogen-device interactions, the Postdoctoral Fellow will focus on the synthesis of polymers carrying antimicrobial drugs providing broad spectrum activity, and the development of coatings that provide effective protection against microbial colonisation over a clinically relevant time frame.
