Overview

ECU is seeking two female academics aspiring to be part of a teaching and research team at a University recognised internationally for its excellent quality of education and research and has a particular focus on environmental sustainability in its engineering teaching and research programs. These are both ongoing positions - one in Electrical Power and the other in Civil Engineering.

As a proud member of the Athena SWAN Charter, Women in STEM Decadal Plan Champion and an WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality, ECU is committed to removing barriers to gender equity in the workplace. We aim to attract and retain those who have chosen a pathway in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM); qualified female candidates are encouraged to apply.

Through a range of strategies outlined in our Athena SWAN Action Plan and the ECU Gender Equality Strategy 2019-2021 we are working to breakdown structural and cultural barriers and driving diversity in higher education and research.

The application process for Athena SWAN accreditation identified areas of priority for the university which included recruitment of women in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). With participation rates for female academics in STEM at 24%, and only 4% in the School of Engineering in 2017, the School of Engineering set targets and committed to strategies that would increase female staff academic numbers within the school and address the gender imbalance. The School successfully met its first target of 12% in December 2019 and continues to participate in university initiatives to improve gender balance in Engineering.

About the roles

The School offers a broad range of undergraduate, postgraduate by coursework and higher degrees by research programs in both Civil and Electrical Power Engineering. We are looking for female candidates who can make a significant contribution to the School’s world-class research and teaching activities. The successful candidates will have a strong track record in research and teaching in either electrical power engineering or civil engineering. Work experience in either the power or resources industry will be an advantage. The successful candidates will have the opportunity to leverage on the unique and world-class research facilities towards industry collaboration and high impact research outcomes.

Applicants will need to demonstrate personal attributes that are congruent with the University’s values of Integrity, Respect, Rational Inquiry and Personal Excellence.

At ECU you will be encouraged and supported to further develop your career in a number of ways including tailored mentoring, networking opportunities both within the school and across the University. The university has a strong focus on being inclusive, flexible and relevant and we offer dedicated schemes to remove obstacles and enable career development and progression. ECU offers and promotes employees having flexible working arrangements that help you manage your work and life responsibilities. Additionally, the self-directed nature of an academic career allows a level of flexibility outside of timetabled commitments.

Testimonial

"I have joined the School of Engineering at ECU in 2019, as it is one of the top engineering schools in Australia and worldwide. I was particularly impressed by the state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, which are amongst the most up-to-date and best equipped facilities that I have seen anywhere. I enjoy working at ECU because of the positive, vibrant and stimulating work environment; it values, supports, and promotes academics who strive for excellence and it provides many opportunities for advancement and professional growth and development. So far, I have received a great deal of support from my colleagues and I have been able to advance my career in many different ways. As a female academic, I really appreciate the work-life balance school policy and the flexible working environment."
