About Monash Doctors

There are more than 900 Junior Medical staff positions at Monash Health in over 200 medical specialties, to help grow your career. We offer unparalleled opportunities in Victoria's largest & most clinically diverse teaching health service.

About the Role

The Clinical Research Fellow will be a key member of a busy and large academic medical oncology unit based at the Clayton campus of Monash Health. The Fellow will provide clinical care to patients enrolled on phase I, phase II and phase III cancer clinical trials across all tumour streams. Trials clinics for all tumour types will be conducted daily at MHTP, at which the Fellow will be expected to actively participate. The Fellow will also be expected to engage in translational research with opportunities for writing manuscripts, involvement in projects and attendance at national and international conferences. The Fellow will also be supported in developing protocols and is expected to fully work up at least one new proposal for an investigator initiated trial. The Fellow will assist with administration regarding collection and presentation of metrics for the Clinical Trials Unit.

The Fellow will participate in the after hours on call service as first on call.

Participation at clinical meetings will include case presentations, journal article reviews and topic presentations.
