The School of Physics seeks to appoint an outstanding Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Level B/C) who will make innovative contributions to the teaching program. A major focus of the position is to provide leadership in the development and implementation of "Studio Physics" through the Physics and Astronomy Collaborative-learning Environment.
You will also be expected to conduct independent research and develop scholarly and professional activities in physics or astronomy. Modern laboratory facilities are a high priority in the school's strategic plan. The school's research laboratories were recently moved to a $175M building - the New Horizons Centre. Premium laboratory space, with excellent vibrational and temperature control, will be provided to an appointee in experimental physics in this new building. The Monash Centre for Astrophysics (MoCA) includes theorists and observers studying cosmology, stellar nucleosynthesis, extragalactic astronomy, solar astrophysics, star formation, planetary dynamics and high energy astrophysics.
To be considered for this appointment, you will hold a PhD in Physics or Astronomy and have a record of publications and citations in high impact physics or astrophysics journals. You will be expected to attract national competitive grants, establish an independent research program and supervise research students.
The successful candidates will be appointed at the appropriate level based on their skills and experience.
