About the position
Bond University's Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine has a multi-disciplinary base across various programs, including Medicine, Biomedical Sciences, Nutrition and Dietetic Practice, Exercise and Sports Science, Health Sciences, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.
The Healthcare Innovations discipline is responsible for a suite of postgraduate programs focussed on the effective adoption of innovations into healthcare practice particularly directed at understanding healthcare needs, developing healthcare systems and services for effectiveness and sustainability, health workforce planning and knowledge translation.
The Faculty is also home to the Bond University Institute of Evidence-Based Healthcare. The Institute is a successful, multidisciplinary team established in June 2010 by Professor Paul Glasziou. The Institute delivers world-class research, engagement and training that serves as a national and international resource for scholars, clinicians, system leaders, patients and families in the implementation of evidence-based clinical care. The co-location of Healthcare Innovations and the Institute within the Faculty provides rich opportunities for collaborative research and engagement with healthcare services and the involvement of Institute staff in teaching of Healthcare Innovations programs.
The Faculty is seeking to make two appointments to the Healthcare Innovations discipline at Associate Professor and Assistant Professor levels to contribute to the ongoing development and delivery of the Healthcare Innovations programs. The successful candidates will contribute to a dynamic team's teaching, learning, research, and community engagement activities. Core subjects include applied learning in health systems, education, evidence-based practice and knowledge translation, health service improvement, implementation, and innovation. They will demonstrate academic leadership, including mentoring and development of staff, and ongoing development of curriculum.
