Position Summary:

Under the guidance of the Director, the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health, will make a significant contribution to developing the capability of the Indigenous health workforce. This position will establish the College of Medicine and Public Health (CMPH) and Flinders University more generally as a national and international centre of excellence in research, education and community engagement in Indigenous Health, with a particular focus on developing leaders in Indigenous health.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health is a priority area for Flinders University and the CMPH with initiatives in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health distributed across a diverse central-Australian corridor from South Australia in the south to the Northern Territory in the north.

The Director will join the CMPH Executive and provide input into the overall direction of the College, and will be expected to partner with Indigenous health entities across South Australia, the Northern Territory, and Australia more generally.

In accordance with the University’s Employment Strategy for Indigenous Australians and pursuant to section 65 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 SA as amended, applications are invited from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people only.
