Griffith University is a dynamic, innovative and well-respected university. The Griffith School of Engineering has been providing tertiary qualifications to the Engineering profession for over two decades, and is known for its innovative and student focussed teaching approaches and its strong industry relationships. There has been a rapid growth in student numbers since 2007 and we now teach over 2000 students at both undergraduate and postgraduate programs in several disciplines, including Civil, Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic and Environmental Engineering as well as in Industrial Design.

The Griffith School of Engineering is seeking an experienced Lecturer to contribute to the programs hosted within the Electrical and Electronic Engineering discipline, which incorporates components of analogue and digital electronics, electrical machines and power systems, control and instrumentation, electromagnetics and communications.

This is a continuing, full time position based at the Gold Coast campus.

The role:

The position involves convening and teaching professional courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels as a member of a small team contributing mainly to specialist courses in computer programming for engineers, and in the engineering design of electronic instrumentation for applications of monitoring and control in areas such as robotics and/or biomedicine. These courses fit into a program complementing other courses in analogue and digital electronics, control and instrumentation, electromagnetism, communication systems, the generation transmission, distribution and control of electrical power, power electronics and electrical machines. Additional expertise in an area relating to the rest of the program would be an advantage. The successful applicant is expected to deliver both advanced courses at a level as befits their specialised expertise and earlier courses at a more elementary level, as well as being expected to conduct high quality research in related areas.

The position is also required to conduct high quality research in areas related to one of the three designated themes within the Griffith School of Engineering or engineering research in another University research centre. The position is suited for an academic who wishes for career development into a role with teaching the Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme as their main focus.

The person:

The successful candidate will have a PhD (or equivalent) in Electrical or Electronic Engineering, or a closely related field. You will be an innovative teacher and have demonstrated capacity, quality and experience in tertiary teaching. The successful candidate will have sustained achievement in high-impact research or show strong evidence of research potential with refereed publications in international journals in an area of Electrical and Electronic Engineering or a closely related area, coupled with the clear evidence of the potential to attract external research grants. You will have the ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with Academic and technical staff, and undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Salary range:

Lecturer, Level B: $89,357 - $106,114 per annum. Salary package including 17% employer superannuation contribution: $104,548 - $124,154 per annum.
