About the Role

Established in 2019, The Research Centre for Palliative Care Death and Dying (RePaDD) examines the complete experience of death and dying for people living with a life-limiting illness, their carers, the clinicians caring for them and the broader community. RePaDD hosts several nationally funded palliative care programs, which aim to build awareness and capacity in the Australian community and the health and aged care workforce. The centre plays a pivotal role in the synthesis, development, and translation of evidence to improve society’s experience of death and dying.

In this role you will contribute to quality research and/or evaluation endeavours, as well as contribute to the planning and delivery of topics within the Palliative Care suite of postgraduate courses. This includes development of teaching materials, delivery of lectures/tutorials or other innovative teaching and learning strategies and examinations. You will also make an independent contribution to strengthening existing partnerships or exploring new partnerships with external stakeholders that have the potential for providing improved teaching, learning and/or research outcomes for the University within digital health and associated areas.

About You

You will demonstrate a passion for delivering inspiring and innovative teaching informed by approaches that enhance the student experience and support students with academic and/or other challenges impeding their academic progress. You will contribute to ethical, high quality and innovative research and evaluation through activities such as scholarship, quality publication, external grant acquisition and presentation that aligns with the RePaDD and contribute to supervision of student research programs.

You will use your excellent communication and interpersonal skills to foster positive relationships with staff, students, and industry that role model the values and ethos of the University.
