The University of Sydney is Australia's first university and has an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. It employs over 7600 permanent staff, supporting over 60,000 students.
The University of Sydney is ranked among the world’s top universities for training of health professionals and for health-related research. The Faculty of Pharmacy is seeking a Lecturer to lead an outstanding research program within the broad area of pharmaceutical sciences, working in one of the five research themes of cancer, cardiovascular and diabetes, healthy services and patient safety, mental health, and respiratory diseases.
Areas of expertise in pharmaceutical sciences across these research themes include target and lead identification and optimisation; preclinical and clinical evaluation; formulation and drug delivery; pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characterisation and modelling; pharmacogenomics and personalised medicine, and ligand/drug-receptor modelling.
As an inspirational teacher in areas that intersect the research themes and learning and teaching requirements of pharmacy students, you will guide the faculty to maintain and further improve its international reputation in both pharmaceutical sciences teaching and research.
This is an opportunity to take on a leading role in collaborative research within the field of pharmaceutical sciences and across other pharmacy-related disciplines. You will join a vibrant and high-achieving faculty that trains approximately 20% of all pharmacists in Australia. You will be expected to have an established research track record within at least one of the research themes listed above.
As a minimum requirement you will have:
- a PhD and relevant expertise in pharmaceutical sciences or a closely related research area
- substantial international postdoctoral experience at a reputable university or research institution
- demonstrated contributions to independent as well as collaborative research with evidence that this research has had impact in and/or beyond the field of pharmacy
- publication record in high-quality (ERA recognised) international journals in the field of pharmaceutical sciences
- the ability to teach within the broad areas of pharmacy including but not limited to pharmaceutical sciences and pharmaceutical / medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutics in both undergraduate and postgraduate professional pharmacy courses (Bachelor of Pharmacy, Bachelor of Pharmacy and Management and Master of Pharmacy) and research degrees (Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy)
- experience in successfully leading multi-disciplinary research teams
- the ability to establish independent and collaborative research programs in any area of pharmaceutical sciences that complements and adds to existing research strengths of the faculty in its five research themes
- evidence of plans for research programs that will attract nationally competitive research funding
- the ability to embrace cultural change and to embody a collaborative and cooperative culture and ethos in all aspects of academic life.
This is a full-time continuing academic career opportunity at a premier Faculty of Pharmacy that will allow you to develop independent research and to become a research leader for the faculty. You will also contribute to research-enriched learning and teaching activities of the faculty and to faculty administration and engagement with the pharmacy profession and the community. Preference will be given to applicants who are pharmacists and/or have a broad teaching profile relevant to pharmacy students.
