The Opportunity

If you are interested in working within a highly successful Faculty, based at our beautiful campus in Parkville across from Royal Park, and enjoying the benefits of working in a top 100 university, then we look forward to hearing from you!

The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is seeking to add your unique skillset in Medicinal Chemistry in the role of Lecturer where you will have the opportunity to make significant contributions to both undergraduate education and postgraduate training programs.

You will also have the exciting opportunity to develop your research by joining the world’s #2 ranked Faculty in Pharmacy and Pharmacology (QS Rankings 2021) and successful applicants will take up a position within the Medicinal Chemistry Theme at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS). The Medicinal Chemistry Theme specialises in small molecule drug discovery, chemical biology, fragment based design and peptide science.

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 some 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 Level B commensurate with qualifications and relevant experience.

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. This position at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
