The Department of Epidemiology & Preventive Medicine is part of the School of Public Health & Preventive Medicine, located on the Alfred Hospital campus. The core skills of the department relate to epidemiology (the study of the distribution, risk factors and causes of disease) and its application to problems in clinical medicine and public health.

This position is to support the continuation of the Australia Breast Device Registry (ABDR), a clinical quality registry for high risk implantable breast devices. The ABDR seeks to enhance the long term monitoring of implanted breast devices and improve patient safety. The ABDR is housed within the Clinical Outcomes Data Reporting and Research Program (CORRP) of the DEPM in Melbourne.


The ABDR Ethics Research Officer will work with the ABDR Relationship Manager and Clinical Leads to engage and manage sites and surgeons eligible to participate in the ABDR. This role will manage submissions to Human Research Ethics Committees (HRECs) and Governance Committees, manage implementation of the ABDR at sites, and support sites on an ongoing basis. The Ethics Research Officer will play a key role in establishing appropriate contacts at each site, and resolving issues that arise during the recruitment and implementation process. The role will also provide ongoing support with site staff to ensure the ABDR is managed within the project protocol at each site. This position will also support other research-related activities and projects.

The position requires a strong understanding of the ethics and governance model underpinning clinical registries, the ability to liaise with stakeholders and channel information, and the preparation of documents. 


The appointee will have:

  • a tertiary qualification in a relevant field; or
  • substantial relevant skills and experience in ethics, governance, and site management; or
  • an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training. 


  • Salary packaging
  • Novated leasing
  • Discounted car parking
