Position overview

ANU has an international reputation for research and education relevant to the health and well-being of the population of Australia, as well as that of the developing world. This is achieved through discovery research, applied research in health service settings, research-led teaching in health and medical sciences, and the translation of research findings into practice and policy. The ANU College of Health and Medicine comprises the Research School of Psychology, the ANU Medical School, the John Curtin School of Medical Research and the Research School of Population Health. These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels.  

The ANU Medical School educates and develops medical graduates who practice medicine with compassion, conscience and professional excellence and demonstrate knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and societies and can extend the boundaries of medical knowledge through research, sharing this knowledge with patients and colleagues, locally, nationally and internationally. The School partners with a number of Indigenous and mainstream healthcare organisations throughout the ACT, south east region of NSW and in remote NT to provide early and regular access to clinical teaching and training.

As the Associate Lecturer, you will provide academic input into the Indigenous health curriculum at the ANU Medical School and contribute to the Schools goal of closing the gap in health outcomes for Indigenous Australians. You will be required to further develop the Indigenous Health Program and will work closely with the Indigenous health staff and key School staff to achieve these goals and objectives.
