Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work.

The Opportunity

A Level B research-only academic is expected to carry out independent and/or team research within the field in which they are appointed and to carry out activities to develop their research expertise relevant to the particular field of research.

Monash University recognises that the health and social impact of addiction is one of the major challenges facing Australia, and has recently established the Monash Addiction Research Centre (MARC), a world-first centre that brings together the greatest minds from across the university to develop innovative approaches to tackling addiction across the full spectrum of society.

One key component of the Centre will be a hub of research activity in Frankston on the Mornington Peninsula, an area that has faced significant social dislocation and hardship and understands more than most the impact of addiction-related issues. Monash is investing over $20 million on research in the Peninsula and by developing real-world solutions, aims to create a paradigm shift in the way government, industry and the community talk and respond to addiction.

The objective of this position is to support senior researchers at MARC to drive addiction treatment research. Studies will harness expertise across Monash to test novel implementation studies exploring new ways of delivering screening, brief intervention and treatment approaches to address addiction in the geographic region of Frankston.

The position will involve coordination of existing studies, assisting and lead grant submissions, and considerable opportunity for publication from a range of existing data sets.

Integral to this position is the development and maintenance of positive working relationships with government and other key stakeholders across health and other sectors, as well as active collaboration with internal and external researchers.

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.
