About UNSW Sydney:

  • One of the world’s top engineering universities
  • Cutting edge facilities and world-leading researchers
  • Commitment to educational excellence and innovation in teaching

At UNSW, we pride ourselves on being a workplace where the best people come to do their best work.

UNSW Engineering is recruiting outstanding and inspirational individuals to join our world-leading group of researchers and teachers to build on our success and take the Faculty into the world’s top 20 engineering faculties.

As Australia’s leading engineering faculty, we create bold new solutions to globally relevant challenges to improve lives.  We combine the world’s best facilities and innovative research with an exciting and connected education experience to open doors for our graduates.

About The School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering:

The School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering aims to bring high quality educators to UNSW to further enhance the thriving teaching and research programs across four streams: aerospace, mechanical, mechatronics, and manufacturing engineering. We have excellent staff that inspire and enrich the education of our students, state-of-the art research facilities, and strong interaction with industry. In particular, the School has recently made a significant investment to create a world class experimental mechanics of materials group in our Advanced Structures and Manufacturing research concentration. To further enhance its excellence in education and research in this area, the School is seeking one high-calibre academic staff member with experience and track record in multiscale computational mechanics modelling of advanced materials and structures. Of targeted interest are candidates with expertise with mesoscale mechanics modelling methods, such as molecular dynamics, phase field, and/or dislocation dynamics, and integrating them across lengths scales with more traditional continuum mechanics approaches.

About the role:

The successful candidate will be expected to develop modern meso-scale modelling techniques across multiple length scales. This new position aligns well with the Faculty’s research foci on Civil Environment/Transport, Biomedical, and Energy/Combustion.

One position is available.  The appointment would be:

  • at level C ($123k - $141k per annum), level D ($147k - $162k per annum) or level E ($188k per annum), plus 17% superannuation and leave loading, commensurate with academic qualifications and experience,
  • full time,
  • to a Convertible Tenure Track Employment Contract for an initial fixed term period of 5 years, with conversion to continuing appointment based on satisfactory performance and there being sufficient productive work available.

The Faculty reserves the right to offer an appointment on a continuing basis or to directly appoint to advertised positions.

About you:

We are looking for exceptional candidates for one academic position. The purpose of this role is to develop and deliver next generation teaching methodologies in computational modelling of engineering materials and structures, enhance our research quality, and strengthen our partnership with industry and government agencies. Skills in all aspects of mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, materials science, or physics are valued.

As the successful candidate, you will have:

  • A PhD in mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, materials science, physics, or a related field, or equivalent relevant professional experience
  • A demonstrated ability and willingness to deliver high quality and innovative teaching and student experience to both undergraduate and postgraduate students
  • A demonstrated track record in integrated computational materials engineering, multiscale modelling, and related research

UNSW Engineering strongly encourages female applicants and actively supports women to succeed through specific Faculty and UNSW initiatives and generous parental leave provisions and flexible work practices.

Applicants from industry and professional backgrounds are especially welcome and should demonstrate their equivalent level of standing as demonstrated by professional experience.

UNSW desires to be the exemplar Australian university and employer of choice for people from diverse backgrounds.  UNSW aspires to ensure equality in recruitment, development, retention and promotion of staff, paying particular attention to ensuring no-one is disadvantaged on the basis of their gender, cultural background, disability or Indigenous origin.

The preferred candidate will be required to undergo pre-employment checks prior to appointment.
