    Lecturers – Physiotherapy
    Discipline of Physiotherapy
    Faculty of Health Sciences
    Reference No: 792/0417

    · Teaching and research roles in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and/or neurological physiotherapy
    · Collaborative and supportive team environment
    · Two continuing full-time or part-time (0.5 FTE minimum) roles, remuneration package: full-time up to $143K package (base salary $102K- $121K, plus leave loading and up to 17% superannuation)

    About the opportunity
    The Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Sydney is a world leader in health sciences research and education. The strategic direction of the faculty is to be known nationally and internationally for the impact of our transformational education and research, and importantly, our research will be deeply embedded with our global partners.

    The faculty’s Discipline of Physiotherapy is actively involved in ground-breaking multi-disciplinary research that has had a substantial impact on the health and quality of life of the community across the lifespan: from evidence-based management of musculoskeletal problems, increasing mobility and function for patients with neurological conditions and cardiopulmonary conditions, to exercise rehabilitation for patients with chronic disease. One of the hallmarks of the faculty is research-informed teaching, and consequently we ensure that our undergraduate and postgraduate physiotherapy programs are enriched by cutting-edge research.

    We wish to enhance our established research and teaching programs with two physiotherapy appointments at Lecturer level. We are seeking to appoint highly-motivated professionals to teach in neurological physiotherapy and/or musculoskeletal physiotherapy. You will join an established and highly-skilled teaching team and make a substantial contribution to the continued success of our well-funded research.

    There will be opportunities to contribute to ongoing curriculum review, ensuring that our programs produce future leaders in clinical physiotherapy, health care, health research and health education. These are stimulating positions that offer the opportunity to be involved in cross-disciplinary research within the Faculty of Health Sciences, throughout the University of Sydney, and with international partners.

    About you
    The University values courage and creativity; openness and engagement; inclusion and diversity; and respect and integrity. We see the importance in recruiting talent aligned to these values in the pursuit of research and teaching excellence. We are looking for a Lecturer/s who have:
    · a PhD in a field relevant to physiotherapy or have evidence of submission of a PhD for examination
    · clinical expertise in neurological physiotherapy and/or musculoskeletal physiotherapy
    · postgraduate clinical qualifications (highly regarded, but not essential)
    · a record of journal publications and scientific conference presentations
    · experience in research-led teaching of physiotherapy at the tertiary level
    · experience with research student supervision (desirable)
    · previous experience in curriculum development (desirable)
    · excellent English language communication skills; and demonstrated ability to work in a multi-disciplinary team
    · eligibility for registration as a physiotherapist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
