The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, is the largest faculty at Monash University and offers the most comprehensive suite of professional health training in Victoria. We consistently rank in the top 40 universities worldwide for clinical, pre-clinical and health sciences.

Contributing to the global health care agenda, the Faculty aspires to lead in all areas of research activity and influence local, national and international policy to improve health and social outcomes and health inequalities.

  • Develop project budgets and prepare financial projections, including developing financial models for business case and grant proposal developments, which inform faculty and university investment decisions
  • Proactively identify research funding trends in government-related and/or biomedical and medical technologies research and education, and lead the faculty response to thrive from these emerging opportunities

To ensure your success in this role you will have extensive relevant experience, preferably in a biomedical research, government or industry-related environment and hold a post-graduate qualification in a relevant field.

If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.
