    Rehabilitation Research Centre
    Associate Lecturer/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer
    3 Year Contract
    Reference No. CC97/10

    The Rehabilitation Research Centre is an emerging multi-discliplinary centre
    within the Faculty of Health Sciences with close links to medicine, allied
    health sciences and biomedical engineering. Key objectives for the
    Rehabilitation Research Centre include increasing research productivity,
    publication and scholarship in the area of rehabilitation, providing a
    stimulating research environment to attract Postgraduate students to the
    Centre and strengthening relationships between the Rehabilitation Research
    Centre and other clinically and research orientated institutions.

    An Associate Lecturer/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer is sought to add to the
    Centre's research profile and to provide supervisory input to postgraduate
    students enrolled in the Centre via the Faculty of Health Sciences.
    Increasingly, research students from non-traditional rehabilitation
    disciplines (eg. human movement studies, biomedical engineering and exercise
    sciences) are choosing to pursue scientific studies in multi-discliplinary
    outcomes following rehabilitation of individuals with chronic disease and
    disability. The successful candidate will collaborate on some of the
    Centre's existing research projects, but there is a strong expectation that
    the candidate will undertake new directions of rehabilitation research with
    the potential to attract external research funds and post-graduate students
    in his/her field of interest. Interacting with a larger group of doctors,
    clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and
    biomedical engineers is possible via the Centre's close links to hospitals
    within Sydney and at the main campus of the University.

    Essential: The successful applicant must have post-graduate qualifications
    at the PhD level (for Senior Lecturer appointment) or demonstration of
    attaining a PhD within the probationary period (for Associate Lecturer or
    Lecturer appointment; PhD conferred within 6-months from initial date
    employment). A strong research background in one or more of the following
    areas must be demonstrated:
    o rehabilitation of children with chronic disease or disability
    o rehabilitation of asyptomatic elderly adults or elderly adults with
    age-related disease or disability
    o multi-discliplinary rehabilitation outcomes after exercise conditioning
    in diseased or disabled populations
    o multi-discliplinary rehabilitation outcomes after exercise conditioning
    in a rural/agricultural environment
    o biomedical engineering or clinical biomechanics research related to
    daily functional tasks in populations with chronic disease or disability
    A record of publication international refereed journals, as well as capacity
    to attract external research grants (for Associate Lecturer/Lecturer
    appointment) or demonstrated track record in successful competitive external
    research grants acquisition (Senior Lecturer appointment) are essential
    criteria. For the appointment to Senior Lecturer there must be demonstration
    of successful supervision of post-graduate research students.

    Desirable: A solid background in rehabilitation research with undergraduate
    qualifications in medicine, clinical psychology, physiotherapy, occupational
    therapy or a similar allied health sciences discipline are desirable
    criteria. Demonstration of successful supervision of post-graduate research
    students is an asset. A previous background in exercise conditioning as
    rehabilitation for individuals with disease or disability and good knowledge
    of statistical data analysis techniques related to small sample research
    studies are desirable criteria.

    Period of Employment: The appointment is for 3 years with the possibility of
    a further offer of up to 3 years subject to need and the availability of
    funding. The position is available from early March, 1997.
