The Department

Monash School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine is a teaching and research unit of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. Within the School is the Centre of Cardiovascular Research and Education in Therapeutics (CCRET), which houses major clinical quality registries in cardiovascular diseases. The Australian and New Zealand Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons (ANZSCTS) Cardiac Surgery Database is a registry that monitors the safety, quality of care and outcomes for cardiac surgery by benchmarking and reporting performance information back to cardiac surgical units and governments across Australia and New Zealand.

The Role

The focus of this role will be to coordinate specialty projects and provide expert advice to support the operations and advancement of the ANZSCTS Database Program. The Senior Project Officer will work collaboratively with clinicians, executives, and other professional and academic staff, both internal and external to Monash University.

We are looking for an active self-starter who can engage a variety of stakeholders, demonstrate sound judgement, and apply project management skills to negotiate the best project outcomes. You will be tertiary qualified with a broad knowledge of clinical registries or large health databases. Experience working in a health service environment would be advantageous, but not essential, and the position may suit someone transitioning from a clinical role to public health. To be successful in the role you will have strong written and verbal communication skills, be highly organised and adaptable, and thrive while working both autonomously and as part of a dynamic and experienced team.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about the opportunity to contribute their talent to a Program dedicated to improving care for patients having cardiac surgery.


  • Excellent technical and general writing skills; specifically policies, reports and proposals
  • Project management experience and high-level planning and organisational skills, including the ability to prioritise tasks, work effectively under pressure and achieve goals within established timeframes
  • Demonstrated data literacy skills, with an appreciation for working with health datasets
  • Highly developed interpersonal and communication skills in dealing with a range of individuals and groups
  • Ability to work independently and autonomously under broad direction, and as a member of a cohesive team
