Science jobs from MIMR-PHI Institute of Medical Research:
MIMR-PHI Institute of Medical Research: In January 2014, the Monash Institute of Medical Research (MIMR) and Prince Henry's Institute of Medical Research (PHIMR) merged to form MIMR-PHI Institute of Medical Research, creating one of the largest medical research Institutes in Australia. The mission of our researchers is to improve global well-being through excellence in medical research and clinical applications.

The positions: MIMR-PHI is seeking to expand its research base through the recruitment of several new group leaders with active research programmes in any of the following themes: cancer, endocrinology, genetics and epigenetics, inflammatory and infectious diseases, fetal and neonatal medicine, women's and children's health, reproductive health or stem cells. Applications are sought from highly motivated individuals at any career stage with outstanding track records of achievement relative to opportunity and with evidence of success in obtaining competitive research funding from national and/or international bodies. We are seeking individuals who will be able to engage in collaborative research projects with researchers at MIMR-PHI and/or with researchers/clinicians based at the Monash Health Translation Precinct. Applicants will be expected to take up their positions in early 2015. Successful applicants will be offered an attractive salary package, including highly competitive laboratory start-up funds, and will have access to all of the infrastructure and facilities available on site, as well as to those based at Monash University. For further information, please refer to the MIMR-PHI website

The Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP): MIMR-PHI employs over 300 staff and 100 postgraduate students and has an expected annual research budget of over $48 million. Scientists and clinicians of the new institute are at the forefront of discovery and translational research in the themes listed above. MIMR-PHI is a key partner in the MHTP with Monash University and Monash Health which services over 40% of Melbourne's population and has a combined research budget of $69 million. As part of a co-operative initiative between all partners, a new $84 million state-of-the-art Translational Research Facility (TRF) is currently under construction at this site. The TRF, due for completion in 2015, will promote interactions between medical researchers and clinicians: to provide world-leading healthcare; to shape discovery research according to clinical needs; and to translate innovative scientific discoveries into tangible outcomes, including best clinical practice. MHTP researchers and clinicians will be located along thematic lines to encourage inter-departmental and cross-disciplinary research. The TRF building will house a new clinical research floor, a platform technology floor (Medical Genomics, Cell Therapies, Micro-imaging and Biomarkers/Proteomics), as well as multidisciplinary research floors.
