The University of Melbourne has a strong tradition in medical technologies and bio-engineering. The world’s most successful hearing implant was developed as a result of the unique combination of clinical and engineering skills in the Melbourne Biomed Precinct, leading to the establishment of Cochlear, which now employs around 2400 people and has $800 million in annual revenue. The skills and technology that led to Cochlear have generated a new wave of life-changing therapies, diagnostics and other devices.

The strong collaborative culture that exists among world-leading organisations based in the precinct between medical and engineering faculties, including the Bionics Institute, Graeme Clark Institute, Department of Biomedical Engineering, St Vincent’s Hospital, The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, among others, has led to several innovative projects and devices. The development of biofabrication facilities at the University Department, St Vincent’s Hospital, has further increased opportunities for interaction between clinical researchers, engineers, and materials scientists.

The University of Melbourne is seeking new researchers at academic level C who can join in and benefit from our developing critical mass of research talent and facilities for medical technologies and bioengineering research. We are seeking researchers with demonstrated expertise to build an internationally competitive research program in:

  • design and development of medical devices of all kinds
  • development and manufacture of novel biomaterials
  • relevant software development skills
  • signal analysis and machine learning techniques
  • regulatory/reimbursement strategies
  • skills in commercialisation and entrepreneurship.

Applications are open until 24th July 2018 and will require a:
