Position Summary:

The Lecturer Flinders NT will be a key team member of the academic staff of the Darwin-based NTMP Indigenous Support Unit (ISU). The Lecturer will be responsible for defined areas within the revision, development and teaching of Indigenous health and cultural safety curriculum, along with related pedagogical research. In consultation with the Deputy Director of Poche, and in line with their skills and interests, the incumbent will develop, seek external funding for, and undertake a program of Indigenous health-related research.

The incumbent will participate in and contribute to the co-ordination of Indigenous health / cultural safety curricula and pedagogical approaches across the ISU, Poche Centre for Indigenous Health and more broadly the College of Medicine and Public Health. The Lecturer will be involved in strengthening existing partnerships and exploring new partnerships with external stakeholders - including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, peak bodies and pan-indigenous health organisations - that have potential for providing improved teaching, learning and/or research outcomes for the University.
