The Opportunity

The Department of Neuroscience, in strong partnership with the Alfred Health Department of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Radiology and Psychiatry, has 17 different research groups and over 140 staff and students. We perform neuroscience research and training relevant to a broad range of neurological and related disciplines, including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and other neuroinflammatory conditions, neuroophthalmology, headache and pain, neuroimaging, neuromuscular disorders, Parkinson’s Disease, dementing disorders, neurocognitive and neuropsychiatric disorders, brain tumours, stroke and traumatic brain injury/spinal cord injury. Within the department is the Integrated Bioinformatics Research in Artificial Intelligence and Neuroimaging (iBRAIN) research unit.  Under the leadership of Prof Meng Law and Dr Ian Harding, the iBRAIN research unit focuses on using clinical and preclinical imaging, bio-fluid, and cognitive markers for understanding the expression and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, including tracking brain health in ongoing clinical trials.

An exciting opportunity exists for a Research Fellow to join the iBRAIN research unit with the aim to take responsibility for the analysis of human structural, diffusion, and/or susceptibility MRI, alongside opportunities to develop skills in PET and MR-PET fusion analyses, as part of ongoing research studies and clinical trials in neurological diseases.

The Research Fellow will have access to career and research grant proposal development support, and will be expected to actively drive the preparation and submission of research publications. Supervision of graduate students and research assistants may also be required. 

Applicants must (i) have completed a PhD in either neuroscience, biomedical engineering, electrical and computer systems engineering, medical physics or a related discipline, (ii) have expertise in MRI data analysis, and (iii) have a track record of MRI research published in recognised academic journals.

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.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
