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.

research students.
