    The Centre for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering (CRSE) is a joint
    initiative between the Schools of Human Movement Studies, Mechanical,
    Manufacturing and Medical Engineering, and Physics. The CRSE has been
    established to contribute significantly to the development of Queensland
    University of Technology (QUT) as a major Centre with an international
    reputation for research in this field. This will be achieved with the
    development of strong alliances with medical, community and commercial
    organisations to address major health care issues through collaborative
    research, consultancy and education. The Centre seeks a Director who is an
    active and internationally recognised researcher in one or more of the
    following priority areas of research and development: design, manufacture
    and evaluation of prostheses and orthoses; and the development of
    non-invasive physiological measurement devices and techniques with
    applications in occupational, sport or rehabilitation settings. The
    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
    with organisations and individuals at all levels. Applicants should have a
    PhD in a field within rehabilitation science and engineering or have
