Professor or Associate Professor or Senior Lecturer or Lecturer in Software Engineering
Under the leadership of the new Dean, Professor Jon Whittle, the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University is seeking to expand its existing expertise in the area of Software Engineering with at least three new academic appointments, including at least one at the Professorial level.
We are seeking:
- An established academic leader, at the Professor/Associate Professor level*, with a demonstrated track record of excellence in research and teaching to lead our software engineering research, teaching and industry engagement.
- At least two academics at the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer* level, to contribute to our software engineering research, teaching and industry engagement.
* Note: Australian Lecturer is equivalent to US Assistant Professor; Australian Senior Lecturer is equivalent to US Associate Professor; Australian Associate Professor is equivalent to UK "Reader"; Australian Professor is equivalent to UK/US Professor.
Exceptional candidates in any area of software engineering research are encouraged to apply. The faculty is in a growth phase and is investing in areas of strategic and cross-disciplinary research such as our Centre for Data Science, our Centre for Organisational and Social Informatics, the recently established Oceania Cybersecurity Centre and our innovation labs such as SensiLab and Immersive Analytics. The new appointees in software engineering will be encouraged and supported to collaborate with colleagues from these centres and across the faculty, the University and with our external industry partners.
The faculty offers a generous start-up package including start-up research funds, scholarships for PhD students and a reduced teaching load for the first two years.
A member of the prestigious Australian Group of Eight Universities, and ranked in the top 80 in the world across all four major University rankings, Monash University is the only Australian university with a dedicated Faculty of Information Technology. Our research and education programs cover the full span of IT, from Computer Science and Software Engineering, through Networks and Security, to Business Information Systems and the Digital Humanities.
These positions will be based at our Clayton campus (located in Melbourne's south eastern suburbs), where we offer a 4 year Bachelor of Software Engineering (Honours) degree, accredited by both Engineers Australia and the Australian Computer Society and a Software Development major in the 3 year Bachelor of Information Technology.
These positions are full-time continuing positions (i.e. permanent, subject to meeting probationary objectives, as per UK system); however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated. Monash is participating in the Athena Swan Charter to enhance gender equality in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) disciplines, and we particularly encourage female candidates to apply.
Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash jobs"
