Honours Research Projects
As a research only institute with an international reputation, Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) immerses Honours students in an active research environment working under the guidance of Australia's leading safety science professionals.
Our research academics and their teams have a wide variety of areas of expertise and interest within injury prevention and injury outcomes or recovery from injury and trauma. We offer exciting opportunities for Honours students in applied research areas that have real-world applications and outcomes research that makes a difference to people's lives directly and indirectly through changing policies and practice around injury prevention and outcomes.
MUARC offers honours supervision on a range of injury-related subject areas, including:
- injury outcomes
- transport safety
- workplace safety
- disaster resilience and response
An honours research project in MUARC will compliment honours coursework in many discipline areas. We welcome students from a wide range of Honours programs and disciplines, including:
- mathematics and statistics
- health economics and econometrics
- medical sciences (e.g. biomedical science, physiology, physiotherapy)
How do I apply for a honours research project?
Because MUARC is a cross-faculty research centre, you must apply to undertake honours through another Monash School or Faculty. You will need to meet all eligibility criteria of that Faculty.

Vacation Research Opportunities
Vacation research scholarships run over the University summer and winter breaks.
The program is intended to encourage and attract promising students interested in pursuing a career in research or academia.
Research scholarships aim to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students with:
- experience in an area of research
- an insight into future opportunities within research
- encouragement to pursue a career in research or academia.
If you're interested in a research career or furthering your studies through an honours program, this is a great opportunity to get ahead during the University breaks.
If successful, you will take part in research-related activities for a specific scientific project for a 13 week period during the summer break or 4 week period during the winter break, under the supervision of a senior researcher.
2022-2023 Summer Vacation Research Scholarships
Applications for the 2022-2023 summer program will be open from Monday 8 August to Friday 26 August (5pm) here.
