research, consultancy and education. The Centre seeks a Director who is an

appointment will be for an initial term of three years with the possibility
of an extension for a further two years. A suitable candidate will be
appointed as Professor of QUT.

QUALIFICATIONS/SKILLS: The Director will provide outstanding leadership,
technical and organisational skills and ensure that the Centre is managed
with a strong strategic and commercial focus in the area of rehabilitation
technology. The Director will be responsible to the Management Committee of
the Centre and will lead a team of full-time researchers, together with
involved staff from the three contributing Schools. The Director must be
able to interact with government and industry leaders and other research
organisations in Australia and overseas, and to communicate and interact
