Professor and Deputy Director

Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute

  • Globally renowned expertise in regenerative medicine
  • Utilise Australia’s largest university’s excellent facilities and reputation

Based in Melbourne, Monash University is Australia’s largest university with internationally recognised expertise in life sciences and biomedicine. Established through a joint venture with the Victorian Government, the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) builds on the University's strengths in biomedical research and supports the critical infrastructure required to deliver the next generation of discoveries in regenerative medicine.  One of the world's largest regenerative medicine and stem cell research centres, ARMI comprises 18 research groups and 270 researchers, students and staff focused on unraveling the basic mechanisms of the regenerative process, enabling doctors to prevent, halt and reverse damage to vital organs due to disease, injury or genetic conditions. 

Expressions of interest in all areas of regenerative, biomedical and stem cell research are welcome, but we are particularly interested in clinician scientists and researchers focused on cardiac biology, Alzheimer and dementia and those with an interest in organoid biology.  Individuals with a focus on clinical research; with research expertise that complements current ARMI investigators; or with proven ability to integrate clinical and basic science elements into a successful translational research program are highly sought after. The University is an inaugural member of the SAGE pilot of the Athena SWAN accreditation program and has a strong focus on helping women advance STEMM disciplines and suitably qualified female scientists are encouraged to apply.

The Professor and Deputy Director will maintain a vigorous research program that addresses fundamental questions in the broad field of regenerative medicine and provide leadership and vision and assist in the management of the Institute to strengthen its profile, research and education networks. The incumbent will have access to state-of-the-art technological core facilities and will need to possess a PhD and/or MD and a record of leadership, sustained competitive funding and publications.  Further information about ARMI is available on our website (http://www.armi.org.au).  Confidential enquiries can be made to Professor Peter Currie, Director, + 61 3 990 29602 peter.currie@monash.edu .

Applications close 31st January 2018 and should include a cover letter, CV, publications list, a statement of previous research achievements, a research plan (max 8 pages) and details of 3 referees.  Please submit applications to Prof Peter Currie, Director peter.currie@monash.edu
