  • Amplify your impact at a world top 50 university as a Research Fellow
  • Join our inclusive, collaborative community and advance living evidence synthesis
  • Be surrounded by extraordinary ideas and the people who discover them
  • The Opportunity

    We are excited to announce two Research Fellow positions with Cochrane Australia and the Australian Living Evidence Consortium. The Research Fellows will advance the application of living evidence synthesis, informing guidelines that evolve with new research findings. This work supports the preparation of research proposals and the production of high-quality research publications, offering a unique opportunity to impact clinical practice guidelines and health outcomes.

    Successful candidates will use living evidence synthesis methods to identify, screen, appraise, and synthesise evidence for living evidence summaries, crucial for developing dynamic guidelines. Responsibilities include conducting research independently or as part of a team, producing conference and seminar papers and publications, and preparing research proposal submissions to external funding bodies.

    We are seeking candidates with a doctoral qualification in a relevant discipline and strong skills in manuscript and research proposal preparation, with a solid track record of refereed research publications. Ideally, candidates will also have substantial experience in systematic evidence syntheses, including systematic reviews and clinical practice guideline development, preferably using living evidence approaches.
