The University values courage and creativity; openness and engagement; inclusion and diversity; and respect and integrity. As such, we see the importance of recruiting talent aligned to these values and are looking for a Senior Lecturer who has:
- a PhD in rehabilitation counselling or related field
- knowledge of the core competencies of rehabilitation counsellors, and experience teaching in an accredited graduate rehabilitation counsellor education program
- evidence of a clear line of research related to rehabilitation and health such as social inclusion or disability and community participation
