The Shiddiky Laboratory incorporates a non-hierarchical structure to ensure equity among lab members. We emphasize on active collaboration amongst the lab members combined with engagement with other groups at Griffith University and beyond to speed up the research momentum. Biweekly lab meetings and journal club discussions are designed to facilitate brainstorming and maintain a healthy collaborative research environment in the laboratory.

Postdoctoral researchers and higher degree by research (HDR) students (PhD, Masters and Honours) are welcome to our laboratory.
Application Requirements

Interested applicants should submit an expression of interest (EOI) to Associate Professor Muhammad J. A. Shiddiky (Email: containing:

  • Statement addressing your suitability for the project/scholarship. Strategic alignment of your project with our existing and emerging research activities (Please check our recent publications )
  • Your direct knowledge to successfully conduct the proposed research project in a timely manner, and evidence of the ‘fit’ between your knowledge and proposed research topic
  • A brief CV containing full list of publications and citations
  • A research proposal
  • Two references

Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoctoral opportunities arise from time to time e.g. via a Griffith University Postdoctoral Fellowship. We are also keen to support talented early-career researchers who already acquired a fellowship from ARC and NHMRC to come to our lab as a postdoc to flourish his/her career.

Key Criteria:

  • PhD holders in Analytical Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Nanotechnology, Microfluidics, Microfabrication, Biomedical Engineering, Medical Biophysics or a related discipline are sought for project focused on ultrasensitive biosensing methods and point-of-care (POC) devices.
  • Experience in microfluidics, electrochemistry, molecular diagnostics, biosensing, or nanofabrication is required, along with evidence of prior productivity and high-impact publications. He/she will work with a highly interdisciplinary team of chemists, engineers, biochemists, biologists, and clinicians to achieve this goal.
