The Opportunity

Monash is seeking to appoint a Professor or Associate Professor to build upon its longstanding research strengths in Medieval and Renaissance history and to position the Monash Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS) as a global leader in these fields. This teaching and research position offers an opportunity to build research collaborations both within Australia and internationally, and to use innovative teaching practices to extend the well-established cohort of undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Medieval and Renaissance history has a prestigious history at Monash dating back to the 1960s, and there is a strong current cohort of undergraduate and postgraduate students in these fields. The Monash Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS) was established in 2012 and has grown rapidly to be one of the most dynamic and successful centres for the study of pre-modern European history in Australia. The Centre is located at Monash Clayton campus and uses the Monash University Prato Centre in Italy to offer several of its undergraduate units in intensive mode and for an annual postgraduate conference. The Monash University Prato Centre is the hub and host for the annual meeting of the Prato Consortium for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. The Consortium – an initiative of the late Professor Bill Kent – was established in 2009 in collaboration with six international partners, along with the State Archive of Prato, and membership now extends to a dozen high-profile universities in Europe, Canada and the USA.

The successful applicant will be appointed at the level and appointment type appropriate to their qualifications, experience and in accordance with the relevant classification standards.

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

If you have a passion for leading research centres, and believe you can fulfil the requirements of this high profile role, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

Your application must address the selection criteria.

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