About University of Melbourne
The University of Melbourne is consistently ranked among the leading universities in the world, at number 1 in Australia and number 32 in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2017-2018). We are globally engaged, comprehensive, research-intensive and committed to responding to the major challenges of our time.

About Melbourne School of Engineering (MSE)
Working at MSE is exciting and fast moving. We are working hard to transform engineering and IT research and teaching, guided by MSE 2025, our ten-year strategic plan. With an expected investment of $1 billion in people and infrastructure, we are creating the entrepreneurial leaders and technology of the future.

About the School of Electrical, Mechanical and Infrastructure Engineering (EMI)
We encompass the Electrical, Mechanical and Infrastructure Engineering Departments, recognising that engineered systems of present and future significance increasingly have connections to all three.

We are the oldest engineering school in Australia – initially founded in 1861 – and have evolved into a vibrant community of internationally recognised researchers focused on addressing major challenges of today and into the future.


The Opportunity
The Department of Infrastructure Engineering (IE) combines the suite of sub-disciplines of civil; environmental; ocean engineering and geomatics into one department creating an unusually broad scope for our research and engineering education. Our aim is to build integrated capabilities that allow us to comprehensively solve infrastructure problems that are sustainable into the future.

We now seek to appoint an accomplished academic with research leadership in Geotechnical Engineering to join our existing team of internationally recognised academics.

physical modelling of geotechnical infrastructure
This newly created position is designed to add momentum to these efforts in both fundamental and applied research, and in building strong links to local and international industry.

You will play a leading role in contributing to the teaching and research program in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering, and to enhance the interdisciplinary research within the School and the University in collaboration with external organisations.


This exciting career opportunity will support you, independently and as a member of the team, to work across all four pillars of an academic career and you will have responsibility to:

pursue internationally leading research
deliver teaching and teaching innovation
engage with industry and other partner institutions
take on leadership roles within the University
