The Opportunity

The School of Biological Sciences is seeking to appoint multiple new colleagues who will cultivate and demonstrate excellence in both research and teaching within the field of Ecology. 

We welcome applicants from any area of Ecology, but particularly encourage applicants with experience and research interests in field ecology, experimental ecology, plant ecology, phytoplankton ecophysiology, or ecological genomics. We also encourage applicants with research interests that align with the objectives of Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future (SAEF), an Australian Research Council Special Research Initiative administered by Monash and part of the Australian Antarctic Program.

Reporting to the Head of School, the successful candidate(s) will be expected to develop and lead a high-quality research program in any area of Ecology and to contribute positively to the scholarly activities of the School, Faculty and broader University community. The successful candidate(s) will also be expected to contribute to the teaching programme in the School of Biological Sciences including our core unit Ecology & Biodiversity, as well as relevant units related to the expertise of the successful candidate.

The School of Biological Sciences has an international reputation for the highest quality research and education programs. We aim to be a global leader in discovery and curiosity-driven research in the life sciences. Areas of particular strength include evolutionary biology, conservation biology and ecology, and genetics and genomics. To help us achieve our aims, we have a collegiate and inclusive community of academic, research and professional staff and a large and high-achieving student population. 

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.

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.
