We’re a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what’s expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

The Opportunity

The sub-Faculty of Biomedical and Physhological Sciences (FBPS) are looking for an assistant lecturer who will contribute to the teaching and curriculum development within the Centre for Human Anatomy Education (CHAE). In addition to conducting tutorials and practical classes, the Assistant Lecturer will be required to develop educational materials required for use in self-directed practical classes and case-based interactive small group teaching and radiological teaching in medicine using the new Sectra tables.

Responsibilities for the role will include:

  • Taking a lead role in conducting tutorials and practical classes in undergraduate medicine, postgraduate medicine, radiography and biomedical science units
  • Developing online-deployable pre-lecture and pre-practical content in coordination with senior staff for CHAE-coordinated/taught units and
  • Organising and coordinating assessments/formative activities, their marking, and distribute student-feedback across CHAE-coordinated/taught units

The successful applicant will have an understanding of pedagogical processes in tertiary education, satisfactory knowledge of human topographical anatomy, as appropriate for a junior clinician to practice under supervision, or for a scientist to conduct independent research. An MBBS degree (or equivalent), a PhD in Anatomy and Development Biology or a related discipline, and engagement in relevant research is strongly preferred.

If this sounds like a role you could be interested in, and you’re excited at the thought of working in one of the largest and dynamic biomedical research and teaching environments in Australia, then we want to hear from you.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
