BSc (Dist) Simmons PhD UniWashington

Science Education Manager

As the Department of Medical Biology of the University of Melbourne, the institute offers a Bachelor of Science Honours program and a PhD program. In my position of Science Education Manager I deliver lectures and tutorials within these programs, in addition to coordinating the courses and providing student assessment.

The Science Education Unit provides academic evaluation for institute students; professional development workshops and mentoring for postdoctoral fellows, PhD students and Honours students. The Unit also contributes to university committees and provides arbitration and pastoral care for our students.

I have an academic appointment with the institute and am a Honorary Senior Fellow at the University of Melbourne. My scientific background is in neurobiology. I have previously had lecturer and research appointments at the University of Auckland and the Australian National University.
