SSC is home to the largest Software Engineering group of academics in Australia. The group specialises in the areas of Human Aspects in Software Engineering, Software Engineering for Next Generation (of technologies and ideas), and Artificial Intelligence for Software Engineering. A large part of the group’s research is industrial based.

This position will suit active and innovative early to mid-career academics who are keen to develop their academic careers and contribute towards high quality teaching, research, and graduate supervisions. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with a friendly, supportive team. Moreover, Faculty members regularly collaborate together on multidisciplinary projects and with external stakeholders (e.g., industry, government). You will also play a major role in our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programs and lead research with a strong software engineering focus.

The successful applicant will hold a doctoral qualification in Software Engineering, Computer Science or relevant discipline areas with relevant software engineering experience. We are particularly interested in covering research and teaching in topics related to Software Engineering for AI, DevOps, Modern Software Architectures, and Software Entrepreneurship.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the preparation of course materials and delivery of classes and work placement support, where applicable. It will be expected that they will be successful at generating grant income and conducting high quality research in Software Engineering and disseminating findings in top ranked international academic venues, while also striving for wider industry, societal reach, and impact. The position also involves supervision of coursework postgraduate and higher degree by research (HDR) students, attending departmental, school, and/or faculty meetings and significantly contributing to planning, committee and administration functions.
