The Opportunity

Monash University is honoured to be the first Australian university to receive a licence to operate in China, one of the world's largest and fastest-growing economies, via the partnership at Suzhou with the Southeast University (SEU), one of China’s key national universities as well as establishment of Monash Suzhou. The SEU-Monash partnership consists of the Joint Research Institute (JRI) and the Joint Graduate School (JGS), and will produce postgraduates and researchers with ideas to change people’s lives in the region and the world for the better.

The JRI conducts multi-disciplinary research projects in areas of strategic importance to industry in Australia and China. To facilitate the collaboration, Monash established The Monash Suzhou Science and Technology Research Institute (MSSTRI) and currently has five priority research themes that address strategic issues of mutual interest, including:

  • Advanced computation in science and engineering;
  • Advanced materials and manufacturing;
  • Energy and environment;
  • Future cities; and
  • Life sciences

Due to sustained growth, and the introduction of new Masters courses, we are now seeking an individual who is passionate about undertaking research in advanced materials, and engaging in teaching the next generation of engineers. 

You will undertake multidisciplinary research in additive manufacturing with application as structural and/or functional materials. Your research will be expected to fall under primarily the Advanced materials and manufacturing research theme outlined above. You will also contribute to the teaching efforts in the JGS, specifically in supporting the delivery of the Masters of Advanced Materials and Manufacturing, engaging with and nurturing our students.

To be successful in this position you will have completed a doctoral qualification in Materials Engineering or another related discipline and have subsequent research and teaching experience in areas aligned with materials, have a record of publications, and high-level technical skills and abilities.

An appropriately qualified appointee will be offered an honorary adjunct appointment as an Adjunct Lecturer or Adjunct Senior Lecturer with the Faculty of Engineering of Monash University, to be held conjointly with the appointment in the Monash Suzhou Science and Technology Research Institute (MSSTRI).
