About the Position
This position represents an exciting opportunity for an outstanding research leader to join a dynamic school. The successful candidate will lead La Trobe's research addressing how information about the provision, social context, and reception of health news and information are evolving across the public sphere at a time when such information is increasingly consequential for citizens and society.
The successful candidate will bring an outstanding record of national and international achievement in research, strategic thinking, and demonstrable experience leading and inspiring teams in an innovative environment. You will lead a program of work that will build expertise and research opportunities both within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences' Flagship Research Area of ‘Cultures of Health and Wellbeing' and, through collaboration, across the university's many health-related disciplines, research centres and the newly-launched Care Economy Research Institute to deliver high quality research outcomes as well as driving cross-university and industry collaborations.
This will be a research-only appointment for the first three years before reverting to a continuing teaching-and-research position after that time.
