The aim of the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre is to conduct ethical, innovative and internationally competitive research investigating outcomes and the effectiveness of intervention programs for individuals with brain injury or orthopaedic injury sustained as a result of trauma, with the ultimate aim of maximising their functional, psychological and social outcomes. 

The Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre has an exciting opportunity for a Research Officer to provide support for ongoing research projects within the research unit. The key components of the work will involve clinical interview, cognitive assessment, and follow-up of patients with head injury, data entry, grant applications and conduct of literature reviews. 

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • A tertiary qualification in psychology or a related field
  • Training and experience with administering cognitive assessments
  • Sound analytical, technical and data analysis skills and a demonstrated capacity to apply effective technical methods, processes and systems

This position involves conducting cognitive testing and for that, we are ideally seeking someone with postgraduate tertiary qualifications in the relevant field.

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