As a new faculty, it is our priority to develop an Indigenous Strategy to affect long-term change in the educational outcomes of Indigenous students and the intellectual and cultural integrity of Indigenous teaching and research across the faculty.

We are currently recruiting for a Senior Lecturer (Level C) or Associate Professor (Level D) to conduct high quality research and make a significant contribution to educational excellence in the School and Faculty. This position sits in the School of Education which is led by Professor Kim Beswick, and affords opportunities to work with the Gonski Institute for Education.

As a Level C academic, you will have advanced qualifications and/or recognised significant experience in the research and education of Language and Literacy. At this level you will have a doctoral qualification or equivalent accreditation and standing. As a Level D academic you will be expected to make a significant contribution to all activities of the organisational unit or interdisciplinary area and play a significant role within their profession or discipline. Academics at this level may be appointed in recognition of distinction in their disciplinary area

A successful Level C-D candidate will also be considered for the award of a position on the prestigious UNSW Scientia Program.

About the UNSW Scientia Program

The UNSW Scientia Program is one of the cornerstones of UNSW’s 2025 Strategy. A primary goal of the Program is to enhance UNSW's research performance by attracting and retaining exceptional early to mid-career researchers, with outstanding research track records. Scientia academics will be leaders in their School and Faculty and engage with the three pillars of social engagement, global impact and academic excellence.

UNSW Scientia academics have access to a range of development opportunities including career coaching tailored to their level of experience across research, teaching and leadership. Scientia academics will be mentored and will also develop the skills required to become mentors and research leaders themselves.

Appointments are made on a Convertible Tenure Track contract. The initial engagement is for 4 years fixed term with the possibility to convert to continuing tenure. The Scientia Program also allows flexibility to take research breaks to do other studies, take an industry engagement or follow other interests. We are also open to part-time appointments.
