The Opportunity

The Faculty of Information Technology offers vibrant and creative programs across all core IT and related subject areas, and in addition has extensive research efforts organised around core competency areas as follows: Systems and Cybersecurity, Data Science, Education, Computer-Human Interaction and Creativity, and Organisational and Social Informatics.

The Digital Health theme in the Faculty of Information Technology draws on capabilities in all the above areas, and is further grounded in collaborations with a range of other faculties across Monash, including Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences; Engineering; Business and Economics; Art, Design and Architecture (MADA); Science and Arts.

The focus of the collaboration is on human-medical system interfaces, developing and designing unique control methods for clinicians working with medical imaging and cardiac intervention systems in ‘no touch’ sterile environments.

As the successful candidate, you will be focused on researching and creating novel prototype and production level software to support the high-level objectives of the clinical staff in the above-mentioned cardiac care contexts. 

You will also work closely and in direct collaboration with the equivalent post-doctoral appointee undertaking design research.

To truly excel in this role you will have:

  • Extensive experience in complex software design and development, and in a range of application development environments
  • Relevant experience in the development of human-centred computer interfaces.
  • Specific experience in the development of human-medical system interfaces, or complex visualisation or control systems is also highly desirable
