The Opportunity

The Experimental Neuropsychology Research Unit (ENRU) within The Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health at Monash University is seeking a talented, dynamic Project Coordinator.

You will contribute towards the research effort of the University and more importantly, support the recently launched TRACK-FA study. This project will investigate the nature of brain changes over time in people with Friedreich ataxia (FA) and how these changes relate to clinical, cognitive and blood markers known to be affected in FA. Participant enrolment in TRACK-FA commenced in early 2021, with the Melbourne site testing its first participant in April.

TRACK-FA proposes the first prospective, multisite longitudinal magnetic resonance (MR) study in FA across six academic sites, including Monash University, University of Minnesota (USA), Aachen University (Germany), University of Campinas (Brazil), University of Florida (USA), and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (USA), sponsored by the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) in the USA, as well as leading industry partners globally. This study is the first of its kind and aims to investigate and validate candidate biomarkers of disease progression for upcoming clinical trials in FA.

You will be responsible for coordinating the management of the TRACK-FA project, as well as providing logistical support and project coordination to support the TRACK-FA neuroimaging consortium chaired by the Coordinating Principal Investigator. In this role you will be responsible for coordinating efforts across all six academic sites, supporting the TRACK-FA academic and consortium meetings, managing ethics amendments, and supporting the Monash REDcap database repository.

To truly excel in this role you will have:

  • Highly developed project management and coordination skills
  • Leadership, consultation and negotiation skills
  • Expertise and experience with research project implementation and the provision of specialist advice to senior managers in a complex organisational environment
  • A passion for program, project and research management

We are seeking someone with demonstrated project coordination experience, ideally across large teams. It will also be an advantage if you have experience in human clinical research projects and/or clinical trials, particularly in the area of neurological or degenerative diseases.

This role is a part-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. This position 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".
