Tenure-track position

Apply – deadline Monday, 16 Oct 2017
The School of Physics at the University of Melbourne is seeking the appointment of an outstanding female academic to a continuing (tenure-track) position of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in astrophysics. The successful applicant will also be awarded an ASTRO 3D Fellowship within the ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3-Dimensions (ASTRO 3D), which allows for full time research during the first six years of the appointment.

ASTRO 3D spans six (6) Australian universities, three (3) national infrastructure facilities, and seven (7) international partner institutions. ASTRO 3D combines Australia’s leading optical, infrared and radio telescope technologies with sophisticated theoretical simulations and ambitious new data intensive science techniques to build a comprehensive picture of the evolution of matter, the chemical elements, and ionizing radiation in the Universe from the Epoch of Reionization to the present day.

The position is open to female researchers in any area of ASTRO 3D science. The appointee is expected to attract postgraduate students, engage collaborative links, and secure competitive research funding. The lecturer will supervise research students at MSc and PhD levels. At the conclusion of their ASTRO 3D fellowship, they will also have a core commitment to teaching within the School’s undergraduate and MSc programs.

The University seeks to increase the representation of women in areas where they have been traditionally under-represented. Pursuant to a Special Measure under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic), The School will, therefore, only consider applications from suitably qualified female candidates for this position.
