This Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor of Orthodontics will provide academic and clinical leadership in Orthodontics for the Melbourne Dental School at The University of Melbourne, as well as for private practitioners.

Orthodontics is a major specialty in dentistry and the Melbourne Dental School provides teaching and clinical training in Orthodontics at graduate, postgraduate and continuing dental educational levels.  At the postgraduate level, the School provides a Doctor of Clinical Dentistry (Coursework) degree in Orthodontics that leads to specialist registration with the Australian Dental Practice Board.

The incumbent would be expected to assist in co-ordinating the teaching of orthodontics in the current programs of the Dental School, including the appointment of sessional staff.  In addition, the incumbent will be required to assist with the development and co-ordination of the orthodontic component of the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, as mutually agreed with the Heads of Orthodontics and Paediatric Dentistry at the University of Melbourne.

The position has a clinical, didactic and research focus and therefore it is expected that the appointee will maintain part time clinical practice in orthodontics in the private or public sector, which may be the University of Melbourne Dental Clinic (MDC).

The successful applicant will be expected to devote a significant proportion of time to the clinical teaching of Orthodontics.  In addition, the successful applicant will be encouraged to undertake research and administer coursework commensurate with the level of the position.  The person must demonstrate experience in teaching Orthodontics.  The Growth and Development Section within the Melbourne Dental School undertakes teaching and research in the fields of Paediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics and Cariology.
