Job Description

Applications are invited for a full-time, convertible tenure-track (i.e. the position will be made continuing subject to performance) Lecturer or Senior Lecturer Position in Astrophysics at UNSW Sydney.

The Astrophysics Group within the School of Physics constitutes 7 faculty members working across a broad range of research areas including galaxy evolution, Galactic archaeology, exoplanets, asteroseismolog and Antarctic astronomy. These are our existing research areas, and we are happy to consider all candidates. Strong consideration will be given to candidates that either engage with an existing UNSW research strength, or which strategically complement existing research strengths.  UNSW astrophysicists are closely involved with Rubin Observatory’s upcoming Legacy Survey of Space and Time, the ESO 4MOST surveys, and the Giant Magellan Telescope. 

The position will be balanced between research and teaching. The teaching supports the delivery of our undergraduate and Honours B.Sc. degrees.
