    The Opportunity

    Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of Indonesian history at Monash University's Faculty of Arts. Join one of Australia's most dynamic arts faculties, renowned for its strengths in humanities, performing arts, languages and social sciences.

    The Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Indonesian History sits within the School of Philosophical, Historical and International studies which undertakes teaching and research which includes diverse areas such as: the philosophy program; the centre for human bioethics; the history program; the centre for medieval and renaissance studies; the centre for the study of ancient cultures; the centre for religious studies; the Monash indigenous studies centre and the Australian centre for the study of Jewish civilisation.

    The role of the Research Fellow is to contribute to the rich legacy of the late Professor John Legge (AO), the foundation Professor of history at Monash. This two year appointment, with the possibility of extending to a third year, offers an exciting opportunity to collaborate with leading historians both within the University and beyond.

    About You

    We're seeking a passionate individual who thrives both independently in a research environment and as a collaborative member of an interdisciplinary research team.

    As the successful candidate you will have the opportunity to collaborate with other historian researchers at the University and beyond to develop your own publication and research portfolio in the field of Indonesian history. Ideally you will have been awarded your doctorate within the past three years in order to maximise the opportunity to successfully apply for an ARC Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA).

    Diversity is one of our greatest strengths at Monash. We encourage applications from First Nations people, culturally and linguistically diverse people, people with disabilities, neurodiverse people, and people of all genders, sexualities, and age groups.

    Join the pursuit of our purpose to build a better future for ourselves and our communities –#ChangeIt with us.

    Monash avidly supports flexible and hybrid working arrangements. We have a range of policies in place enabling staff to combine work and personal commitments more easily.
