The University of Sydney is Australia's first university and has an
outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. It
employs over 7,500 permanent staff supporting over 49,000 students.

The University of Sydney’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences has a
proud history of intellectual rigour and offers a vibrant research and
teaching environment. The School of Philosophical and Historical
Inquiry (SOPHI) is one of five schools in the Faculty, made up of the
departments of Archaeology, Classics and Ancient History, Gender and
Cultural Studies, History and Philosophy. The School brings together
an exciting group of academics and students who participate in a wide
array of undergraduate and postgraduate programs. It is home to some
of the leading researchers and teachers in Australia and the world, as
well as regularly hosting prominent visitors and international
colloquia.  The University is recognized for research excellence in
Cultural Studies, having received the highest ranking for this field
of research in the last two ERA exercises.

Applications are invited for a continuing position in Gender and
Cultural Studies at the level of Senior Lecturer in the Department of
Gender and Cultural Studies. The Department has a vibrant
interdisciplinary research culture and a reputation for excellence at
all levels of teaching. It offers a dynamic undergraduate curriculum
with majors in both Gender Studies and Cultural Studies.

The department is seeking an applicant with a demonstrated
international research profile in Cultural Studies or a related
discipline who can demonstrate a high level of excellence in
undergraduate teaching and in research. We are particularly interested
in appointing a candidate who specialises in the cultural dimensions
of globalisation, questions of everyday life, home and belonging, and
cultural approaches to the environment and material culture.
Expertise in ethnographic and/or qualitative research methods is
highly desirable. The appointee will be expected to teach large
undergraduate units of study in gender, communities, belonging and

will be expected to pursue an active research program, participate
fully in the Department’s research culture and undertake appropriate
administrative roles and curriculum development as required.

or a related field, and be able to provide evidence of research
publication and current research activity in their field. Demonstrated
experience and excellence in teaching large units at an undergraduate
level is essential as is experience in supervising Honours, Masters
and Higher Research students. A demonstrated ability to attract
competitive research funding is required. Evidence of professional
service and leadership in the field of Cultural Studies, Gender
