About the program: Generation Victoria (GenV)

GenV is the largest children’s cohort ever to be planned in Australia. It is targeting all 170,000 Victorian babies born in 2021-2. It hopes to lead to new discoveries, new ways to predict and treat problems, and better or safer care for children with both common (like obesity, allergies and poor mental health) and less common (like epilepsy and cerebral palsy) problems. By bringing together administrative, biological, clinical and GenV-collected data into a single resource, it aims to speed up health and other solutions for children and mid-life adults (their parents). Please see for additional information about GenV.

This is an exciting once-in-a-life-time opportunity to provide senior epidemiological leadership and ambassadorship to this landmark study. As GenV’s Senior Epidemiologist you will be instrumental in the growth of GenV’s science and people. You will be centrally involved in study design and the birth cohort protocol development and related grant applications. Your leadership in epidemiological methods will include sampling design and the validity and feasibility of comprehensive exposure and outcomes measurements. You will also advance linkage to administrative and clinical data sources. A junior epidemiologist will report to you and you will work with GenV staff across all streams and with stakeholders internal and external to MCRI. You will lead some content areas as it relates to your own expertise, experience and track record.
