  • Lead nursing research to influence the continuous improvement of safe, effective, evidence-based healthcare delivery
  • Build strong relationships with appropriate partners and foster a shared ethos of research, teaching and education
  • Supervision of Honours, Masters and Higher Degree by Research students required


Cabrini Health and Monash University are delighted to announce the joint appointment of a Director of Centre for Nursing Research – Cabrini Health, and an Associate Professor of Nursing Research – Monash University. This Level D academic position will work with clinicians to identify key clinical issues relevant to both Monash University and Cabrini, and will enable nurses and midwives to examine practice, challenge current thinking, consider new ideas and identify approaches to assess changes in practice. This in turn, will see the profile of nursing and midwifery research and innovation increase with greater cross-organisational working and collaboration. The location of an Associate Professor of Nursing across the two organisations provides a sound link between the Monash student community, researchers and clinical nurses.

Cabrini’s research teams are collaborating with teams across the Monash Partners group and there have been excellent grant and publication outcomes as a result.  Applicants for this role should have a national reputation for outstanding research and the ability to generate and personally attract research income.  They must be able to demonstrate strong links with industry, health services and other disciplines, and be an experienced leader not only in research but also in leading junior researchers.

This position will be jointly based at the Cabrini Centre for Nursing Research in Malvern and Monash University’s Clayton Campus in order for the appointee to provide the basis for collaboration of staff and students between the two organisations.


Ideal fields of research expertise for the Nursing Research role in alignment with Cabrini’s four strategic pillars, and in particular their focus on the vulnerable market are:

  • Ageing,
  • Big Data,
  • Health Economics
  • Health Services Research,
  • Quality Standards,
  • Health Outcomes – particularly in relation to pressure injuries and falls.
