The Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre has an exciting opportunity for a Research Officer to provide support for ongoing research projects within the research unit. The key components of the work will involve clinical interview, cognitive assessment, and follow-up of patients with head injury, data entry, grant applications and conduct of literature reviews.


Who We Are

The aim of the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre is to conduct ethical, innovative and internationally competitive research investigating outcomes and the effectiveness of intervention programs for individuals with brain injury or orthopaedic injury sustained as a result of trauma, with the ultimate aim of maximising their functional, psychological and social outcomes.


To be successful Research Officer with us, you must have:

  • A tertiary qualification in psychology or a related field

  • 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


This position involves conducting cognitive testing and for that, we are ideally seeking someone with postgraduate tertiary qualifications in the relevant field.

If this sounds like a position that suits your current career focus we look forward to hearing from you.

This role is a full-time position; however, part-time flexible hours 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.
