The Epidemiological Modelling Unit (EMU) is seeking a highly-skilled and independent Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow to undertake a significant leadership role in its non-communicable disease and demographic modelling research agenda. The appointment will be made at a Level B or C, depending on experience.
EMU is housed within the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine’s (SPHPM) Division of Research Methodology. The Unit undertakes a broad range of epidemiological, statistical and actuarial modelling to determine the likely effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of clinical and public health interventions. EMU undertakes both communicable and non-communicable disease modelling, and is looking to build its expertise and research agenda in the latter.
In non-communicable disease modelling, key collaborations will be the Centre of Cardiovascular Research and Therapeutics, clinical triallists and disease registries within SPHPM, as well as industry and other academics at Monash and elsewhere. Skills in epidemiology, demography, comparative effectiveness research, chronic disease policy and prevention, Markovian processes, Bayesian inference, statistics and computer programming (in platforms such as R) would all be particularly relevant.
A Level C research-only academic is expected to make independent or original contributions to the research effort within her/his field of expertise and to the organisational unit or inter-disciplinary area of which he/she is a part. An academic at this level is expected to play a major role in research, including the exercise of significant leadership in independently building the non-communicable disease modelling research agenda.
A Level B research-only academic is expected to carry out independent and/or team research within the field in which he/she is appointed and to carry out activities to develop her/his research expertise relevant to the particular field of research.
At a Level C, you will hold a PhD in a related discipline, with a strong record of publications, in addition, you will have provided student supervision including supervision of honours students and the co-supervision of PhD students, along with the ability to work independently in a research environment.
At a Level B, you will hold a PhD in a related disciple, and in addition, you will have demonstrated postdoctoral research experience which has resulted in publications, along with demonstrated statistical analysis and manuscript preparation skills.
This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to “How to apply for Monash jobs”
