The Opportunity

The School of Physics and Astronomy at Monash University invites applications for the position of Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Physical Biosciences.

Monash University recognises the need to be diverse, inclusive, and excellent. The School of Physics and Astronomy seeks to increase the diversity of the School, particularly the number of female academic staff members, in order to add distinct viewpoints and broader experiences to research and teaching as well as to inspire the next generation of physics students and staff. Therefore the School will only consider applications from suitably qualified female candidates for this position. The Female-only requirement is a lawful special measure under section 12 of the Equal Opportunity Act and section 7D of the Sexual Discrimination Act.

Candidates will be expected to have an outstanding research record and help our drive for excellence across the School. All areas of Physical Biosciences will be considered. The School’s current areas of strength in Physical Biosciences include biophotonics, x-ray phase contrast imaging, foundations of image processing, biomedical imaging using synchrotron radiation, tomographic reconstruction with radiation and matter wavefields, modelling complex systems and clinical applications of novel imaging modalities. We anticipate growth over the next few years in those areas at the intersection of physics, biology and medicine. We are interested in creative researchers who are able to make an impact in the multidisciplinary field of biosciences. To be considered you will have a PhD in physics, biophysics, imaging, or a related field, proven ability to perform independent research, and a strong commitment to teaching and the supervision of research students.

The School of Physics and Astronomy is a research leader with a strong international reputation in observational astronomy & astrophysics, experimental physics, theoretical and computational physics. Monash University is a leading Australian research university that ranks in the top-100 globally. Monash University is located in Melbourne, which is a major cosmopolitan centre and has been named the world's most liveable city for several years in a row.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
