Monash eResearch Centre (the operator of MASSIVE) is seeking to appoint a highly experienced Cloud and HPC Architect to lead the architecture and development of our research cloud and high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities, including MASSIVE.
MASSIVE and Monash University, in collaboration with national partners, is hosting an entry to the Supercomputing Student Cluster Competition. See the Student Cluster Competition page for details.
Monash researchers, together with colleagues from the Pasteur Institute in Paris, have discovered a unique set of “super” receptors on immune cells capable of killing HIV across genetically diverse populations, making them a potential candidate for immunotherapy treatments. The work was published in the journal Science Immunology.
The Monash Ramaciotti Electron Microscopy Centre, in partnership with the Imaging CoE, has installed Australia’s first cryoFIB/SEM.
When the human genome was first sequenced, it took thirteen years and around US$1 billion to get the first draft ready. Today, sequencing a human genome takes less than a week and costs around $1000.
When a radioactive element’s half-life is measured in hundreds of thousands of years, studying its behaviour in real-time is out of the question.
Astrophysicist Professor Andrew Melatos was one of 100s of international scientists who found the first evidence of the existence of gravitational waves. The three senior physicists behind the momentous discovery received the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.
Professor Tom Drummond of Monash University is working on computer-based models of the human brain’s visual cortex that will enable robots to make rapid decisions, based on a programmed understanding of their visual environment.
