Located in the Department of Chemical Engineering, this newly-created position offers aspiring academics the opportunity to join a highly successful department within our consistently-ranked world-class Melbourne School of Engineering.

You will deliver high quality teaching in graduate and undergraduate programs and be expected to build a world-class, independent and well-funded research program in a field that is consistent with the research interests of the Department. These research areas can be summarised as:

Materials Development – including nanotechnology, polymer science and ceramics processing to develop new materials. Applications range from drug delivery to high temperature rockets.

Separations Technology – encompassing solvent extraction, membrane processing, solid-liquid separations, adsorption and filtration. Applications are focussed on sustainable energy, carbon dioxide capture, mining and water resources.

Surface Chemistry and Rheology – encompassing colloid science, interfaces, atomic force microscopy, suspensions and non-Newtonian rheology. Applications are in minerals processing, consumer products, food processing and wastewater treatment.

Bioprocessing – the use of biology within engineering processes. Applications include food, biofuels, pharmaceuticals, bio-inspired polymers and tissue engineering.

These four domains are underpinned by cross-domain strengths in applied process engineering and in mathematical modelling.

The Department would also keen to see applications from candidates whose research aligns with: Energy storage technologies – encompassing fuel cells, battery technology and catalysis

You will actively collaborate with other research groups in the Department and the Melbourne School of Engineering and interact with industry and/or government agencies. We particularly seek a candidate with strong connections to industry or the ability to build partnerships with key industrial collaborators.

Applications for part-time or other flexible working arrangements will be welcomed and will be fully considered subject to meeting the inherent requirements of the position.
