We are seeking applicants with diverse skills and expertise to contribute to our growing community at the School of Public Health. We are seeking casual academic staff to run tutorial classes and/or mark assessments. The School of Public Health welcomes applications from candidates with expertise in the following discipline areas:

  • Epidemiology and biostatistics
  • Health promotion and protection
  • Determinants of health
  • Research methods
  • First Nations’ health
  • Health services, systems and policy

Applicants must have the right to work in Australia for the duration of their employment. Honours or postgraduate qualification(s), current enrolment in a higher degree research or postgraduate coursework program, and/or industry experience relevant to the teaching discipline will be highly regarded. Relevant teaching experience is desirable and beneficial to hold, but is not essential.

New applicants must be available for compulsory training sessions scheduled for the week prior to semester.
