Macquarie is a university engaged with the real and often complex problems and opportunities that define our lives. Since our foundation 54 years ago, we have aspired to be a different type of university: one unbound by ivory towers and sandstone walls. Rather, we are focused on fostering collaboration between students, academics, industry and society, encouraging all to traverse the boundaries of their own perspective and affect change.

The Faculty

Macquarie’s Faculty of Human Sciences holds a distinctive place on the global stage. With several internationally acclaimed centres producing ground-breaking research in areas like linguistics, psychology, cognitive science and education, our faculty is a place of passionate educators and unbridled discovery. Supported by state-of-the-art facilities including the Australian Hearing Hub, we work together to investigate and answer some of the big questions about what makes us human.

The Role

Our Faculty Research Coordinator works closely with Faculty academics to provide advice and guidance in the development of a range of research initiatives and supports the Faculty Research Manager in the development and implementation of Faculty research strategies and plans. Strong coordination skills combined with a focus on quality outcomes and delivery will enable the successful applicant to oversee the administration and delivery of internal research schemes and other related projects.

You will be comfortable working with and analysing large data sets to guide and support strategic decision making and identify potential opportunities.
