Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Terrestrial Vertebrate Evolutionary Biology / Ecology


REF 8734

Salary range: Lecturer $86K ĄV $102K per year, Senior Lecturer $105K
ĄV $120K per year depending on qualifications and experience. There is
an additional 17% employer superannuation.  Lecturer (level B) roughly

and Environmental Sciences (BEES) is seeking to appoint a biologist to
undertake research, postgraduate supervision and teaching within one
of AustraliaĄŚs most dynamic research environments.  The appointee
will be expected to build a research program in areas of whole-organism
biological sciences, specifically in the area of terrestrial vertebrates,
and tosupervise Honours and postgraduate students with interests in the
biological sciences.  UNSW was one of only four universities within
Australia to achieve an average research ranking over 4 in the 2010
Australian Research CouncilĄŚs national ERA research assessment. BEES
was a majorcontributor to UNSW obtaining rankings of 5/5 for biological
sciences (well above world research standards) and 4/5 for earth
sciences (significantly above world standards).  BEES is a large,
multi-disciplinary,research intensive school in the Faculty of Science
at the University of New South Wales, dedicated to pure and applied
research in natural systems spanning the biological sciences to the earth
sciences. The school incorporates a range of environmentally-relevant
disciplines enabling it to undertake comprehensive education and research
in the broad fields of Biology, Marine Science, Geography and Geology.
Within the biological sciences, the school has research strengths in
evolutionary ecology, wetlands and rivers ecology, marine biology and
palaeobiology and is regrowing the general areas of mammalian biology and
plant systems that have been traditional strengths. Over the last decade
UNSW has oriented its whole-organism biology research towards a focus
on integrative and conceptual biology ĄV particularly at the interface
of evolution and ecology.  The School is home to the Evolution & Ecology
Research Centre, the Australian Wetlands and Rivers Centre, the Australian
Tsunami Research Centre and the Palaeontology & Palaeoecology research
