The Opportunity

The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences is the University's largest research faculty. World-class researchers work across disciplines including laboratory-based medical science, applied clinical research, and social and public health research. 

The faculty is home to a number of leading medical and biomedical research institutes and groups, and has contributed to advances in many crucial areas. Our expertise in life sciences and biomedicine is recognised both nationally and internationally. From a teaching perspective, our education curriculum covers a range of disciplines, including medicine, nursing, radiography and medical imaging, nutrition and dietetics, paramedic studies, biomedical sciences, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, behavioural neurosciences and social work. We take pride in delivering outstanding education in all courses, in opening students to the possibilities offered by newly discovered knowledge and in providing a nurturing and caring environment.

The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) is a state-of-the-art regenerative medicine research facility situated at Monash’s Clayton campus. The institute is a joint venture between Monash University and the Government of Victoria. ARMI employs a multi-centre, cross-disciplinary and highly focused approach to develop innovative clinical protocols as well as pursue rapid commercial transfer of its technologies related to regenerative medicine. At the core of ARMI strategy is the Future Scientific Leaders Program based on the model at the world renowned European Molecular Biology Laboratories (EMBL) established throughout Europe. The program allows young scientists the freedom to pursue discovery-based research and position them to become the scientific leaders of tomorrow.

The institute builds on the University's existing strengths in biomedical research, and supports the critical infrastructure required to deliver the next generation of discoveries in regenerative medicine.

As the successful candidate you will be a vital member of the administrative team which provides support to the Office of Director and the broader ARMI staff and students. You will have excellent interpersonal skills, provide outstanding customer service and organisation of varied events that meet quality expectations. This role will also support the activities of the Centre for Commercialisation of Regenerative Medicine, Australia (CCRM Australia).

Expression of Interest

Professor of Cardiovascular Research 
Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute 
Monash University

Expressions of interest are invited from established researchers to establish a research program focused on Cardiovascular Science at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University. Applications in all areas of Cardiac and Vascular Biology and disease are welcome, but we are specifically interested in those researchers whose interests are in regeneration and stem cell biology or tissue engineering or epigenetics as applied to cardiovascular diseases.

Candidates for this Professorial position must have an MD and/or PhD degree, evidence of sustained competitive funding, and an outstanding publication record of quality peer reviewed science. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a vigorous research program that addresses fundamental questions in the broad field of cardiovascular biology. Candidates with a focus on clinical research and with research expertise that complements those of current investigators at the Institute are of special interest.  Clinician scientists are particularly encouraged to apply and an option for a clinical appointment may be available in within Monash Heart to appropriate candidates.   

The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute currently has 16 research groups, and a total of 230 researchers, students and support staff from 21 different countries. Its location on the Monash University campus offers a highly stimulating biomedical research environment allowing Institute researchers to work closely with other university research organisations including the Monash Institute for Medical Engineering (MIME) and Biomedical Discovery Institute (BDI) and CSIRO, one of Australia’s leading multi-disciplinary research institutions. The vision promoted at ARMI is to exploit and connect the multi disciplinarity of its groups, aligning their complementary capacities around key research pipelines; Heart and muscle development and regeneration, Immunity and Regeneration, Stem cells and Regeneration and Neural regeneration. 

Of particular importance for this position is the establishment of the Victorian Heart Hospital (VHH) on the Monash University Campus.  The VHH will enable world class research and education in addition to specialised clinical care with key features including an expanded medical and cardiovascular health research program that builds upon the current activities of both Monash University and the Monash Cardiovascular Research Centre. 

The successful applicant will have access to the state of the art clinical and basic science research facilities planned for this hospital and have significant opportunity to shape the research environment of the hospital precinct as it emerges. 

An increasing focus on translational research is an integral part of the Institute’s research mission, and individuals that have a demonstrable ability to integrate clinical and basic science elements into a successful translational research program will be highly sought after. The successful candidate will be expected to strengthen the Institute and Monash’s profile and research networks both from an internal and external perspective, engaging with the wider cardiovascular research community, locally, nationally and internationally.

The successful applicant will have access to state-of-the-art technological core facilities within the university, including flow cytometry and advanced molecular imaging (small animal NMR and microPET, check), micro and light imaging and state of the art animal facilities.

Further details are available from:  Prof. Peter Currie, Director,

To Apply: Applicants should submit an expression of interest including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a list of publications (indicating ten most significant publications), a statement of previous research achievements, a research plan (maximum 8 pages/font 12) and a list of at least three reference persons, all in a .pdf binder.

Your complete submission, referenced “ARMI Group Leader in Cardiovascular Research” should be sent to Caz Aitken at                  

We look forward to receiving your application!
