  • Be inspired, every day
  • Drive your own learning at one of the world’s top 80 universities
  • Take your career in exciting, rewarding directions

Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work. We’re a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what’s expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

The Opportunity

The School of Physics and Astronomy is seeking to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer on a continuing, full-time basis who can contribute to and extend existing research, teaching and engagement activities within the Monash Warwick Alliance in Particle Physics. The purpose of the Alliance is to strengthen the particle physics activities at both universities by exploiting different areas of expertise. The Alliance has created a number of shared projects and has a total funding of $7M over the period from 2020 to 2025. 

In this role, you will build an outstanding research programme in particle physics, develop an international profile, and attract external funding from National Competitive Grants. The research will take advantage of the membership of Monash University in the LHCb experiment. The LHCb group at Monash is currently involved in the data analysis of rare decays and non-perturbative QCD, development of simulation tools, and R&D for the calorimeter upgrade. For the first three years of the position, there may be the opportunity to spend a substantial amount of time at CERN.

The successful applicant must hold a doctoral qualification in a relevant discipline or have equivalent accreditation and standing. In this position, you will contribute to innovative evidence-based pedagogy in the undergraduate physics curriculum. While placed at CERN, there will be a reduced involvement in undergraduate teaching. With the ability to work positively and motivate and inspire learners, you will play a major role in our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programs and lead research with a particle physics focus. 

As a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer, you will be responsible for the preparation of course materials and delivery of classes. You will lead your own research, collaborate with other research groups, and apply for research grants. The position also involves supervision of coursework postgraduate and higher degree by research students, attending departmental, school, and/or faculty meetings and significantly contributing to planning, committee and administration functions. 

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

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. This position at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
