Drawing on the expertise of our staff and the university's unique research platforms and technology, our mission is to sustain and build on Monash's position with world-class research and teaching in Psychology.

The newly established Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences will provide an exceptional research environment for discoveries that change of our understanding of the brain. Through excellent research and training, a wide network of international partners, and strong industry engagement MICCN will lay the foundation for a pipeline of discovery in areas of critical importance of the human brain and see that knowledge translated into the clinic, the workplace and the community. The Institute represents the largest grouping of cognitive and clinical neuroscientists in Australia and Asia-Pacific

The Anderson Lab within the Sleep and Circadian Medicine Laboratory and Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences (MICCN) is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Post-Doctoral Research Fellow to be part of large multi-disciplinary team examining the anatomy of a fatigue-related motor vehicle crash. The project is funded as part of an ARC Linkage grant which brings together academic excellence with cutting edge technologies and industry partnerships.

The role will involve working with a team of specialists in sleep and circadian medicine, human factors and driver fatigue to unpack the factors that culminate in a near-crash or crash event when driving fatigued. There is also opportunity to take a leadership role in examining age-related differences in these responses.

The role will include:

  • administration and set-up of the research program
  • coordinating communications and reporting between different project teams,
  • assisting with maintaining financial records,
  • preparation of reports, and overseeing project collaboration activities.

The position requires liaison with academics and support staff locally, regionally and internationally, as well as with scheduling staff, and experimental participants, plus partner organisations within the Alertness CRC.

If you have a PhD in the biomedical or biosciences domain from a recognised university or equivalent qualifications and research experience in the area and this looks like a role that would suit your current career focus then we would welcome your application.

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