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

With a research establishment of over 20 economists and a vibrant PhD program, the Centre for Health Economics (CHE) is an internationally renowned institution that has been at the forefront of important research in the economics of health and health care for more than a decade.

As a consequence of winning a new research grant, we are seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to work on a project with senior health economists at the CHE. The project will evaluate the impacts of increased gambling opportunities on the gambling preferences and behaviour of Australians, and its consequences for their mental health, financial wellbeing and quality of life. 

The role will provide the research fellow with the opportunity to develop their research skills, research experience, and research profile.

To be successful you will have a relevant honours or postgraduate-level qualification in economics, health economics, econometrics, statistics or public health. You will possess excellent quantitative skills, along with good written and oral communication abilities.

The role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated. The position is for 1 year in the first instance, but successful applicants will have an opportunity to participate in the longer-term development of this stream of research within the CHE.

Your application must address the selection criteria, and include your CV and 3 references (contact name, phone number and contact email). Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
