We seek to understand the past, but also to create the world of the future. Our College is an exciting place to research, study, and work, supported by best practice teaching methods, practical work-related learning, and advanced facilities.



About the Role

Flinders University is the only university in South Australia to offer entire programs in Geospatial Information Systems (GIS). Our undergraduate programs consist of a three-year GIS degree, an Honours degree, and a double degree in GIS / Archaeology.

The team of GIS academic consists of a small but growing group of staff who present our GIS programs and undertake research in applied areas (including coastal change, wildfire detection and impact, forestry and groundwater). Strong networks existing between GIS staff, other Flinders research groups and industry have resulted in a supply of interesting research topics and subsequent employment.

In this role you will act as a key member of the academic staff and deliver quality geospatial research. In addition to this, you will contribute to the planning and delivery of topics, including development of teaching materials and delivery of lectures/tutorials or other innovative teaching and learning strategies. You will also provide undergraduate/postgraduate teaching and research supervision that, through internal and external collaboration, builds and compliments Flinders University current strengths in GIS.

You will hold an outstanding research track record and contribute to the College's research strengths through high-quality publications and the attraction of competitive external grants.

To be successful in this role you will have a PhD in Geospatial Information Systems or a related discipline with demonstrated evidence of successful teaching experience at a tertiary level. This includes responsibility for topic coordination, course coordination, curriculum design, reviews, and internal and external accreditation activities.
