About the Opportunity

Are you a passionate Occupational Therapist? Do you have a strong commitment to occupation centred practice, education, and research?  The Occupational Therapy Discipline at Griffith University adopts a contemporary view of the profession that enables students to become occupation centred, theory-driven, evidence-based based and client centred.

In addition to delivering high-quality entry-level education, the Occupational Therapy team at Griffith is building a strong research and publication profile, often in partnership with external collaborators.

This is a full time, continuing position based at either the Nathan or Gold Coast campus. It is expected that the successful candidate will be available to attend campus in person as a normal requirement of the role.

About You

You are an Occupational Therapist who is eligible for registration with the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia. You are committed to occupation centred occupational therapy, and, as this is a Senior Lecturer role, you will have a research doctorate in occupational therapy or a relevant field. You are research active and can demonstrate a growing publication and funding profile, as well as be able to demonstrate your experience in occupational therapy education in the higher education sector.

You are a team player, and thrive in a fast paced, constantly evolving environment where you can demonstrate your creativity in solving challenges. You are committed to lifelong learning and education, and you are passionate about the importance of inspiring the next generation of occupational therapists in enhancing the health of individuals, communities and populations.
