Exciting new opportunity for an academic with expertise in Health Economics

We are looking for an academic with a passion for teaching our undergraduate and postgraduate students about the importance of health economics in the development and evaluation of public health interventions.

The School of Public Health has a strong multidisciplinary culture as it recognises and respects the need for multiple disciplines to work together to inform public policy about interventions to protect, monitor and evaluate the health of the population. As a health economist with an interest in informing health policy, you will have a comprehensive knowledge of the Australian health system, economic theory, evaluation and modelling, and its application to public health. You will take personal satisfaction in applying good pedagogy to engage, educate and develop your students and instill in them a sound knowledge of health economics and its relevance to the proper understanding of the value of a public health activity.

Across the year you will coordinate three courses – an undergraduate course (“Hacking Health”) in the Bachelor of Health and Medical Sciences and two Masters level courses (“Health Economics” and a new short course co-developed with policy makers on “Making healthy public policy”). You will also teach short modules in the Masters of Public Health and the medicine program.

To be successful at Lecturer, Level B, you will need:

  • Doctoral or masters qualification in health economics or in a health related field (eg Public Health) with a strong component of health economics; or equivalent training and experience.
  • Demonstrated experience in the conduct of tutorials, practical classes, lectures/seminars, and workshops.
  • Demonstrated experience in curriculum development and review.
  • Research interests that are cross-disciplinary and collaborative.
  • Proven contribution to research projects including grant funding applications, analyses, publications and project management.

In addition to the above for Senior Lecturer - Level C, you will also need:

  • Experience in course/program coordination and the conduct of tutorials, practical classes, lectures/seminars, and workshops.
  • Demonstrated ability in high quality course and curriculum design, and in the delivery of high quality student centred learning and teaching at an undergraduate and postgraduate level that includes the capacity to incorporate new technologies and new approaches to teaching and learning.
  • Supervision of major honours or postgraduate research projects.
  • Demonstrated academic and management leadership skills, including the ability to mentor other academic, research and professional staff.
  • Strong record of publications, including papers in leading international journals and/or presentations at international conferences.
