The Opportunity

The Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health (housed within the School of Psychological Sciences) provides an exceptional research environment for discoveries that change our understanding of the brain.

Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI) conducts basic and translational research of the highest quality and hosts state of the art MRI facilities for animal and human imaging, and molecular and X-ray imaging facilities for investigating small animal models. These capabilities are supported by expert personnel and a suite of ancillary facilities, including patient support, radiobiology and (limited) short-term animal holding. 

This Research Fellow position will be responsible for the analysis of simultaneous MRI-PET and MRI neuroimaging projects. This will include (but is not limited to) simultaneous BOLD-fMRI/FDG-PET methods development and applications of MR-PET and MRI in ageing and cognition and will also support ongoing projects in the laboratory.

You will contribute to manuscript preparation of MRI-PET and MRI projects and have access to career and research grant proposal development support. Supervision of graduate students and research assistants may also be required. 

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • A tertiary qualification in psychology or related field
  • Strong quantitative skills and experience in PET and/or MRI
  • Sound analytical, technical and data analysis skills and a demonstrated capacity to apply effective technical methods, processes and systems
  • Strong attention to detail and accuracy and an understanding of confidentiality, privacy and information handling principles
  • Demonstrated project administration skills with the ability to support research projects in accordance with agreed standards and timeframes

Ideally, we are seeking someone with a PhD in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, medical physics or related discipline, and will be seeking to develop an academic career in neuroimaging research.

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.
