University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia

The School of Health Sciences is seeking to appoint three motivated,
energetic individuals to join the research and teaching team within the
Exercise & Human Biosciences Unit, School of Health Sciences. The three
positions to be filled are described below:

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience & Motor Control Ref No: 21762

The primary role of this position is to coordinate and integrate the
School's teaching subjects in Neuroscience and Motor Control &
Dysfunction into both the Medical Science degree and Exercise Science
degree programs. The successful applicant will also be expected to
contribute to teaching and supervision at under- and postgraduate levels
in these subject areas and to demonstrate commitment to maintaining the
School's excellent standards in teaching and learning. In addition to
teaching, the successful applicant will be expected to contribute to an
area that underpins either the basic science programs related to these
subject areas or to applied research areas such as neurological exercise
rehabilitation, neuromechanics or motor control. To be successful you
will have a PhD or education and equivalent experience, demonstrated
capacity for innovative and high quality teaching, the ability to foster
and supervise postgraduate research and the ability to obtain research
funding. Applicants with strong clinical skills in areas related to
Exercise Science are encouraged to apply.

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Human Anatomy & Physiology Ref No: 21763

The primary role of the position is to coordinate and drive the School's
Human Anatomy teaching program as well as to oversee the Faculty's
state-of-the art Human Anatomy Laboratory. In addition to teaching
Human Anatomy & Physiology, the successful applicant will be expected to
contribute to teaching in either professional preparation subjects for
Exercise Science students, such as Exercise Rehabilitation
(musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, neurological and/or immunological
rehabilitation) or subjects related to Cardiorespiratory Physiology.
The successful applicant will also have an identified area of research
ideally related to clinical exercise science or basic science underlying
clinical conditions. To be successful, you will have a PhD or education
and equivalent experience, demonstrated capacity for innovative and high
quality teaching, be able to foster and supervise postgraduate research
and the ability to obtain research funding. Applicants with strong
clinical skills in areas related to Exercise Science are encouraged to
apply. The successful applicant will be required to undertake the role
of Academic Leader in Human Anatomy to oversee development of the
Laboratory into an internationally recognised teaching facility of the
highest quality, which highlights advances made in anatomy education at
the University of Wollongong.

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Exercise Science Ref No: 21764

The primary role of the position is to contribute to teaching and
supervision at under- and postgraduate levels in Exercise Science and
Rehabilitation, particularly professional preparation subjects for
Exercise Science students, such as Exercise Rehabilitation
(musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, neurological and/or immunological
rehabilitation). In addition to teaching, the successful applicant will
be expected to drive new research initiatives involving the use of
exercise to prevent diseases associated with modern society or exercise
as a rehabilitation modality. To be successful you will have a PhD or
education and equivalent experience, demonstrated capacity for
innovative and high quality teaching, the ability to foster and
supervise postgraduate research and the ability to obtain research
funding. Applications will be especially welcome from individuals with
extensive clinical and research experience in musculoskeletal,
cardiorespiratory, neurological and/or immunological rehabilitation.

The University reserves the right to appoint at the level of Lecturer or
Senior Lecturer depending upon the skills, qualifications and experience
of the applicant.

Position Environment:

The School of Health Sciences is the largest of the four Schools
(Graduate Medicine, Nursing and Psychology) within the Faculty of Health
and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Wollongong. Within the
School, research-based BSc(Hons), MSc(Research), and PhD degrees are
offered, which build on under- and postgraduate degree programs in
Exercise Science and Rehabilitation, Occupational Health & Safety
(OH&S), Medical Science, and Nutrition and Public Health. The School of
Health Sciences offers a dynamic research and teaching environment, with
research ranging from molecular biology to applied human studies.
