Job Description

The University

Monash University seeks to improve the human condition by advancing knowledge and fostering creativity. It does so through research and education and a commitment to social justice, human rights and a sustainable environment.

The Opportunity

Monash is seeking an outstanding candidate to lead the Department of Occupational Therapy.  The department, since its foundation in 2006, has gained a reputation as a vibrant and progressive department within the School of Primary Health Care, Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

The successful candidate will have an exceptional track record, with evidence of educational innovation and research productivity at the highest level. In addition, the appointee will be expected to present excellent leadership and mentorship skills required to manage the research and teaching activities of the department as a whole.

Candidates must hold a research doctorate in a relevant discipline and be a member (or eligible to become a member) of OT Australia and to be registered through Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). In their application, candidates should specifically demonstrate how their research has influenced practice and/or policy. A successful track record of attracting research funding both nationally and internationally is also essential, as is a demonstrated ability to successfully lead and innovate in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programs.


The appointment will be continuing and will include the role of head of department for up to five years.

The Benefits
