Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor (Level B, C or D) 2 positions available Unit for History and Philosophy of Science Faculty of Science Reference No. A39/86466
The Unit for History and Philosophy of Science (HPS) of the University of Sydney is seeking to appoint two Lecturers (at Lecturer Level B, Senior Lecturer Level C or Associate Professor Level D). The rank and remuneration of each appointee will depend on teaching experience and research accomplishment and potential. Strong records in both are necessary. One appointment will be continuing (tenure track) and the other initially for three years with continuation contingent on funds.
Candidates are welcome from all sub-fields of the discipline and from all areas of expertise, but one appointment is expected to be in the history and philosophy of the biomedical sciences. The successful candidates will be expected to cooperate throughout HPS, and a demonstrated ability to converse with scientists and scholars from other disciplines will be an advantage.
The Unit for HPS is part of the Faculty of Science, and draws under/post-graduate students from both science and the humanities. The appointments are in response to continuing growth in the number of students, scholarly output and competitive funding. The successful candidates will be expected to actively contribute to further expanding the Unit’s international reputation for excellence in teaching and research.
Remuneration package for Lecturer Level B: $80,126 – $95,150 p.a. (base salary $67,708 – $80,403 p.a., leave loading and 17% employer’s contribution to superannuation).
