Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work. We’re a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what’s expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

An exciting opportunity exists for a Research Fellow to join the Evidence Synthesis Qualitative and Implementation Methods Unit of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine. The Research Fellow will work with members of the Cochrane Australia team and the Australian Living Evidence Consortium to undertake research to investigate, and prepare manuscripts describing, the methods of development of ‘living’ (continually updated) evidence syntheses and clinical practice guidelines.

The role is required to develop a series of publications reporting work undertaken by the National COVID-19 Clinical Evidence Taskforce, and other members of the Australian Living Evidence Consortium.

To be appointable to this role you must hold a doctoral qualification in a relevant discipline area or equivalent qualifications or research experience, with undertaking systematic evidence syntheses, including both systematic review and clinical practice guideline development, ideally, but not necessarily using living evidence approaches. You must also have familiarity with GRADE guideline development methods and NHMRC Guideline Approval requirements.

This role is a full-time/part-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.
