About the opportunity

Join us as Chair of Lifespan Oral Health at the University of Sydney School of Dentistry where you'll lead a research team and work with other faculty research leaders to shape the future of health in this country and beyond. With a focus on improving oral and general health outcomes for the population, you'll use implementation science principles and interdisciplinary collaboration to lead primarily externally-funded translational research teams to reduce the burden of oral disease in all populations.

As an accomplished academic with a passion for improving oral health outcomes, you'll maintain your reputation by actively contributing to research and scholarship, academic debate, policy development, and innovation within the Sydney Dental School and the broader community. You'll mentor staff within the Sydney Dental School and engage with students to instill the importance of oral health and promote oral-systemic connection.

As senior research leader, you'll work to improve the reputation of the University of Sydney and the Faculty of Medicine and Health (FMH) by fostering a culture of excellence and guiding academic staff and students towards success. With the authority to make decisions in the day-to-day operation of the role in line with the research and teaching goals of the agreed strategy, you'll have a significant research leadership role encompassing the breadth of the FMH.

We're looking for an outstanding academic with a national or international reputation in oral health research, strong record of training research students and early career researchers, and a wide network of established relationships with key academic, industry and professional institutions, partners, and stakeholders. Join us and use your talents to make and shape the future of healthcare.

You will have a distinguished record of academic teaching excellence demonstrated by successful student outcomes, impact on student learning, awards/prizes, and innovation. You will have a vast network of established relationships with key academic, industry, and professional institutions, partners, and stakeholders to enhance the discipline's standing and that of the School, Faculty, and University. You will have demonstrated experience in translating research into practice, including an understanding and application of implementation science in their research. You will have advanced stakeholder management skills with proven capability to build and maintain strategic partnerships and collaboration with diverse groups, including clinicians, staff, academic institutions and other organisations, towards research success. Finally, you will have excellent written and oral communication skills to engage different audiences.
