Looking to move to Melbourne, ASAP

I am currently a resident in Missouri, USA. I don't plan to evoke my USA citizenship, but I do want dual citizenship with USA and Australia. I am a high-school student also looking for school in either Melbourne or Sydney for Marine Biology (studying the zoology of the Great Barrier Reef). But I have some problems;
1. Does Melbourne University have a system where if I plan on getting m citizenship, can I get commonwealth?
2. What is the average cost of living? From what I can find, it's through the roof Protected content dollars a week)
3. How long does it take to get permanent residency, and then citizenship?
4. What is the likelihood of getting a Marine job right out of college with a Master's?

I have a lot more questions, but these are how I want to start off. Thank you(:
