Research Fellow at Monash University

Monash University has an opening postdoctoral researcher position in sustainable development. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before March 12, 2019.

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.

Join BehaviourWorks Australia (BWA), a leading behaviour change research enterprise within the Monash Sustainable Development Institute (MSDI). The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team of talented behaviour change researchers who work collaboratively with their government and industry partners to find behavioural solutions to social, environmental and organisational problems.

Support the senior research team in conducting research that responds to the partner's needs and provides them with the evidence they need to make better program and investment decisions. These partners include State and Federal government departments, government-owned corporations, non-government organisations and industry groups seeking to have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of the Australian community in areas such as health, environmental protection, safety, social inclusion and sustainability.

While you will be expected to work across a range of collaborative research projects, one role will focus specifically on supporting a major environmental project being undertaken by BehaviourWorks' government partners to address the problem of waste and the other will have a particular focus on running behaviour change trials in multiple contexts.

You will be involved in conducting literature and practice reviews, audience research and developing, monitoring and evaluating behaviour change interventions. You will produce industry reports and peer-reviewed publications and, depending on interest, deliver training. You will also contribute to MSDI's over-arching research agenda, which uses the SDGs as a framework for addressing sustainability challenges.

This role offers enormous scope to develop your career in this rapidly evolving field and will suit someone who enjoys the challenge of applied research.

This role is a full-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.
