Sarah P’s comments: Monash U. is a branch of this Australian University with eight campuses: six in Australia, one in Malaysia, one in South Africa, and a centre in Prato, Italy. They appear to be growing and posted two positions in 2015 and one in 2016 however I recommend reading the Glassdoor Reviews before deciding to apply.
