The Opportunity

A new research group within the Turner Institute in the Monash School of Psychological Sciences is seeking to appoint a dedicated and passionate Research Fellow to conduct research into male suicide prevention interventions. This position is funded through ‘The Buoy Project’: a large multi-university project, funded by the Australian Government Research Fund, that is advancing male suicide prevention in Australia.

The Research Fellow will generate research relevant to male suicide prevention interventions and contribute to two key projects: a randomised controlled trial of a school-based intervention for adolescent boys, and an evaluation of suicide prevention services for the construction industry, with additional projects likely. You will be responsible for undertaking daily activities of the projects and contributing to research outputs and there is also scope for contributions to journal publications and conference presentations.

Ideally, we are seeking an early career researcher with a doctoral qualification in psychology, public health or a closely related field with relevant research experience.

This role is a part-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. This position at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Monash University seeks applicants for this opportunity who are able to demonstrate and present valid and current Australian work rights.

Your application must address the selection criteria.
