The School of Aerospace Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering (AMME) is
one of Australia’s leading research and teaching engineering schools, with
degree programs in mechanical, mechatronic, aeronautical, space, and
biomedical engineering. The school has over 1800 students and has seen
strong growth in demand for teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate

AMME staff conduct world leading research and development in the areas of
aerospace, biomedical, combustion, design, fluid dynamics, materials,
rheology, robotics and thermodynamics. Based on a strong growth in student
numbers and an outstanding record of research excellence, we are currently
seeking outstanding academics across a variety of levels and research areas
within the School of AMME.

The School of AMME is looking to make a number of faculty appointments
across our broad engineering disciplines.  With these appointments, the
school aims to strengthen its position as an international leader in
research that contributes to the solution of key global problems. We are
seeking applicants with demonstrated research and teaching excellence
across a range of engineering fields, including aerospace, biomedical,
mechanical and mechatronic engineering. Candidates with innovative
approaches to multidisciplinary research and potential for strong
interactions with industry, as well as with existing research strengths in
AMME, are encouraged to apply.

In addition to leading research, successful candidates will be expected to
take responsibility for teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate
level. Specific areas of teaching will be determined in consultation with
the Head of School and may comprise first and second year introductory
engineering units of study as well as specialist higher-level
research-focused electives.

We are seeking candidates with:

   - a PhD (or equivalent)
   - a track record of securing external funding and performing
   high-quality, independent and collaborative research
   - a track record of publication in leading international peer reviewed
   journals, with a commensurate citation impact
   - a track record of excellence in teaching associated with core
   undergraduate and postgraduate units of study
   - experience in supervising undergraduate and postgraduate research
   - the ability to develop new areas of curriculum should the need arise
   - a record of industry interaction and liaison
   - the ability to contribute to the administration of the school, the
   University and the wider community.

The following roles are currently available:
