The Opportunity

The Centre to Impact Antimicrobial Resistance (“ImpactAMR”) is forging solutions to achieve minimisation and reversal of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). We are working to mitigate the current AMR crisis exacerbated by antibiotic use and climate change, and to stem the tide of the impending threat of AMR to vulnerable groups in Australia and the world. The Centre has core interdisciplinary strengths in Environmental and Evolutionary Science, Sociology and Anthropology, Biomedical Sciences, Engineering and Nanoscience. The Centre will nurture strategic relationships across Asia, leveraging the relevant expertise and global connections of Monash University including through the Revitalising Informal Settlements and their Environments program. The Centre’s pillars are set to reverse the TIDE of AMR, by:

  • Training and educating the next generation of experts and develop health and community services
  • Inventing novel medical materials and surfaces establishing pathways to commercialisation
  • Discovery of new knowledge of mechanisms to slow or reverse evolution of pathogens
  • Engaging for coordinated action across sectors and low resource countries to ensure translation to policy and practice

The Executive Assistant will provide support to the Director, Centre to Impact AMR to develop, establish and embed key administrative and operational practices throughout the establishment phase of the Centre to Impact AMR.

The Executive Assistant is required to undertake key support functions to ensure the smooth and professional operation of the office including: drafting correspondence, facilitating communication, scheduling meetings, providing secretarial support for committees and working groups, managing and screening telephone calls, diary management and liaising with university staff and external bodies.

The Executive Assistant will also provide general administrative support for projects and events and have a focus on excellence in process and judgement to provide sound and timely advice and executive support.

The Executive Assistant will work with the Director and senior Centre staff to create and promote an environment of diversity and inclusion.

As the successful candidate, you will be responsible for coordinating the activity of the Director and senior Centre staff, for facilitating efficient communications within the Centre, liaison with Monash University services and support in the organization of projects and events. 

If you have a degree or high-level experience in any relevant area, it need not be in an area of science, you are encouraged to apply. You should detail your relevant experiences in terms of your ability to assist in developing and embedding key administrative and operational practices during the establishment phase of the new Centre.

If this sounds like a position that suits your current career focus we look forward to hearing from you.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
