Dear colleagues,

I would like to bring the following continuing position to the attention of ASA members.

The School of Physics at the University of Melbourne is seeking the appointment of an outstanding female academic to a continuing position of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in astrophysics. The successful applicant will also be awarded an ASTRO-3D Fellowship within the ARC Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3-Dimensions (ASTRO 3D), which will allow for full time research during the first six years of the appointment.

ASTRO 3D spans six (6) Australian universities, three (3) national infrastructure facilities, and seven (7) international partner institutions. ASTRO 3D combines Australia's leading optical, infrared and radio telescope technologies with sophisticated theoretical simulations and ambitious new data intensive science techniques to build a comprehensive picture of the evolution of matter, the chemical elements, and ionizing radiation in the Universe from the Epoch of Reionization to the present day.

The position is open to female researchers in any aspect of ASTRO-3D science. The appointee is expected to attract postgraduate students, engage collaborative links within the School as well as externally, and secure competitive research funding in line with the strategic direction of the School. The Lecturer will supervise research students at undergraduate, MSc and MPhil/PhD levels.  At the conclusion of their ASTRO-3D fellowship, the successful candidate will also have a core commitment to teaching within the School’s undergraduate and MSc programs.

Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Stuart Wyithe (swyithe at unimelb.edu.au)<mailto:swyithe at unimelb.edu.au)>, or other members of the Astrophysics faculty at the University of Melbourne.

The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas where they have been traditionally under-represented.  Consistent with this, the School of Physics is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across physical science disciplines.  Pursuant to a Special Measure under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic), the School will, therefore, only consider applications from suitably qualified female candidates for this position.

Best regards,


Professor Stuart Wyithe | Head, School of Physics
