About the Role
As the Lecturer in Physiotherapy, you will harness innovative teaching practices and technologies to deliver an interactive and personalised approach across the suite of Physiotherapy topics in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. You will be responsible for making an independent and high-quality contribution to teaching via curriculum design and review, and the creation and coordination of lectures, tutorials, and workshops.
As you will be concurrently engaged in practice as a Physiotherapist with clinical experience in cardiorespiratory physiotherapy, you will ensure teaching is in step with contemporary practice by applying your understanding of the nexus between teaching and learning, research, scholarship, and practice.

You will have an extensive track record of high-quality teaching performance at a tertiary level, inclusive of simulation and/or clinical settings. With your exceptional communication and interpersonal skills, you will maintain strong relationships with diverse range of staff, students, and industry stakeholders. Your natural ability to collaborate and engage with relevant external professional domains will develop productive partnerships that can provide opportunities to students and promote graduate employability. With your comprehensive knowledge of industry needs and demonstrated experience in tertiary teaching, you will harness your high-quality written communication skills to develop curricula, and coordinate topics. Your keen attention to detail will allow you to prioritise and coordinate tasks to ensure deadlines are met, while always demonstrating a commitment to high quality service delivery.
To be successful in this position, you will also:
- Have a doctorate in a relevant field or equivalent clinical experience and professional standing in Physiotherapy.
- Hold and maintain unconditional registration as a Physiotherapist with AHPRA.
