Dear list members,
The School of Geosciences at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia has announced a search to fill two continuing positions at the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer Level. We are seeking candidates who have significant experience in applying synchrotron-based methods to High Temperature Geological Processes (one academic position) and Low Temperature Geological Processes (one academic position).
The deadline for applications is Friday, 25 October, 2013, 11:55 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
Detailed descriptions of these opportunities are provided below.
All the best,
Applications are invited for two continuing academic teaching and research positions at Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (B/C) Levels as part of a strategic initiative in the Faculty of Science to strengthen its profile in the application of synchrotron methods to geoscience research.
The successful candidates will carry out collaborative research within the School of Geosciences and at the Australian Synchrotron Facility (which is located adjacent to the Monash University Clayton campus). The appointees will contribute to establishing a world-class synchrotron geosciences research group and help to meet the demands created by dynamic and expanding undergraduate and postgraduate student enrolments.
Candidates will be chosen by their ability to carry out transformative research in their field and will have a proven record of success in competitive research grant funding, peer-reviewed publication, and teaching and mentoring, relative to experience. The appointees will also be required to teach at the undergraduate level and to supervise student research at the Honours and postgraduate levels. Applications are sought from candidates with appropriate expertise in two broadly defined fields:
High Temperature Geological Processes
Continuing academic position at the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level (Level B/C) in high temperature geological processes with significant experience in using synchrotron techniques in their research. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in geochemistry, igneous and metamorphic petrology, volcanology, rock physics, planetary science, economic geology, geometallurgy or mineralogy.
Low Temperature Geological Processes
Continuing academic position at the Lecturer/Senior Lecturer level (Level B/C) in low temperature geological processes with significant experience in using synchrotron techniques in their research. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in environmental geoscience, low-temperature geochemistry, geobiology, biogeochemistry, or geomicrobiology.
Lecturer (Level B) roughly equates to Assistant Professor and Senior Lecturer (Level C) to Associate Professor in the North American system.
Appointment will be made at a level appropriate to the successful applicant's qualifications, experience and in accordance with classification standards for each level. Monash offers a range of professional development programs, support for research, study and overseas work, generous maternity leave, and flexible work arrangements.
