In particular, by contributing to our new, cutting-edge, Masters of Pharmaceutical Sciences, you will have a major impact on students' learning experience and the creation of a skilled workforce in the critical and growing pharmaceutical sciences industry.

    You will also have the exciting opportunity to develop your research by joining the world's #1 ranked Faculty in Pharmacy and Pharmacology (QS Rankings 2022) and successful applicants will take up a position within one of five major research Themes within the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS). Applications are encouraged from across the spectrum of pharmaceutical science-related disciplines, including medicinal chemistry, drug delivery, disposition and dynamics, and drug discovery biology.

    The Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) integrates research from five fundamental research themes to identify, develop, optimise and deliver new drug treatments – ultimately translating basic research into clinical trials. These research themes are Drug Delivery, Disposition and Dynamics, Drug Candidate Optimisation, Drug Discovery Biology, Medicinal Chemistry and Medicine Use and Safety.

    MIPS is Australia's largest, most experienced and successful group of pharmaceutical scientists with over 250 staff and 250 PhD students undertaking basic and translational drug discovery, drug delivery and drug development research in state-of-the-art laboratories on Monash's Parkville campus.

    A successful candidate will have a doctoral qualification in the relevant field, with significant research experience and experience in curriculum and subject material development as well as the ability to work independently and as part of a team. These attributes will assist you to build an internationally recognised research program, to prepare and deliver seminars and lectures, to supervise undergraduate and postgraduate research students and ultimately to deliver impact in the fast-moving field of medicine research and education.

    The successful applicant will be appointed at either Level B or Level C, commensurate with qualifications and relevant experience. Please specify in your cover letter the level that you are applying for.
