Monash Vision Group (MVG) has been developing ground breaking technologies to stimulate the visual cortex including developing a cortical recording device. The stimulator and recorder work together for a bidirectional brain interface. MVG is part of the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering (ECSE), in the Faculty of Engineering, Clayton. The group is directed by Professor Arthur Lowery.

Monash Vision Group is one of ten groups to receive $1M funding each from the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Frontiers scheme. MVG will develop plans for two companies. The plans will be part of a competitive process to secure up to $100M from MRFF in 2020.

The Opportunity

This is a key role within the MVG working with the phase one project team. The role will be outward facing, working closely with patient groups, clinicians and hospitals to investigate and identify applications of Brain Machine Interface (BMI) technology. This technology is aimed to provide innovative, safe and effective treatments for a range of conditions and the role offers the chance to be at the forefront of a new treatment paradigms for disease and disability, with the goal of growing Australian medical device capabilities through commercialisation of BMI technologies.

As the opportunities emerge and future plans are developed, stronger relationships will be formed with key providers, including 5-year plans for the development, testing and commercial roll-out of these technologies. The testing plans may include pre-clinical verification using external service providers, and will include clinical testing after ethics approvals. Both will require the development of close working relationships with service providers, such as universities and hospitals.

The position will be required to network across Australia, organise workshops of interested partners and calibrate commitments made by potential partners. Information gathered will be reported to the Project Lead (Brain Machine Interfaces) using your outstanding verbal and written communication skills.

To ensure your success in this role you will hold education, training and/or relevant experience in Clinical Partner Development and business planning within the medical devices industry or a similar medical related sector.

If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

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.
