    About the employer

    Monash University 

    Monash University Is the largest university in Australia, ranked in the world's top 100 and a member of the prestigious Group of Eight.  We're named after Sir John Monash, and fuelled by his desire for our students to leave here with a greater sense of purpose, and the skills and confidence to create positive change. 

    In under 60 years, we've grown from a single campus into an education and research powerhouse with a presence on four continents, committed to the challenges of the age.

    Our work is making an impact all over the world, from bringing clean water to villages in Africa to creating new life-saving medicines.

    An international experience

    With four Australian campuses, one in Malaysia and over 100 international partners, we're making a difference on a global scale.  You'll have access to more research collaborations, more global partnerships, and a greater choice of overseas opportunities.

    We're active in over 150 fields of research across our 10 faculties, in areas as diverse as additive manufacturing, drug development, domestic violence and sustainable design. Many ideas developed at Monash - such as a new Malaria vaccine and 3D-printed engines - have been commercialised and are making a difference to the world we live in.

    Partnerships in industry and government

    Home to various precincts of innovation, we foster collaboration across traditional and unexpected disciplines.  We build teams and form links, we bring together diverse minds - researchers, companies, businesses and technology - creating knowledge hubs of the future.
