About the opportunity
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine and Health are partners in an exciting new research initiative named the ARC Centre of Excellence for Children and Families over the Life Course (Life Course Centre) which will identify the pathways through which social and economic disadvantage are perpetuated over the life course, within communities, and across generations. The Life Course Centre is comprised of an inter-disciplinary team of renowned social scientists based at four Australian Universities, NGOs, government departments and eminent international research affiliates.
The Life Course Centre now has two Postdoctoral Research Fellow vacancies which will be based in the School of Economics supporting a research program on the cognitive science of disadvantage which encompasses a broad range of issues in neuroeconomics, behavioural economics and cognitive psychology including mental health, child health and development; education; sleep disorders; youths and risky behaviour. The successful candidates will work closely with colleagues in the School of Economics and elsewhere within the centre to provide leadership and foster excellence in research, and further the goals of the Centre.
Your key responsibilities will be to:
- contribute to the knowledge within the discipline or area of expertise
- undertake original research (independently and as part of a team) within discipline or area of expertise
- bring and maintain a research profile which meets University expectations and standards
- develop research collaborations which will ultimately result in knowledge or technology transfer leading to commercialisation, improved policy or practice and/or enhancements to industry, the profession or the community
- significantly contribute to successful applications for competitive research grants and/ or funding to deliver research impact
