    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

    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.
