School of Agriculture and Food Sciences

The School of Agriculture and Food Sciences is Australia’s most diversified agriculture research and teaching school, comprising research and teaching experts in agribusiness and the science disciplines of animals and wildlife, plants and soil sciences, food and nutrition science. With nearly 350 staff, 300 higher degree research students and over $40 million in operating and research income, the School has helped UQ to become recognised as the world’s top ranked tropical agriculture university, and the leading agriculture university in Australia.

Located at St Lucia and Gatton, the School is a large and dynamic multidisciplinary hub focused on applied research and teaching within the Faculty of Science.  We are committed to finding innovative and technology focused solutions to global challenges.  The School offers a range of undergraduate postgraduate coursework and research degrees encompassing agriculture and related disciplines ranging from Bachelor Degree to Doctorate.

With a diverse group of internationally regarded scientists, the School hosts six research concentrations, of which three are aligned with the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation– a joint initiative between The University of Queensland and the Queensland State Government. Quality laboratories and facilities and strong partnerships with industry, community and government bodies, provide an environment that enables world class research and research training in a collaborative and cooperative spirit for postgraduate students and researchers.

About This Opportunity

The School is seeking highly motivated and energetic individuals with a record of high quality teaching in undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Soil Science discipline area. Essential to the role is an ability to proactively contribute to the development of course content and to undertake teaching, research and engagement activities.

This position will be seen as a key contributor to the school’s research agenda and will have a focus on establishing a national and international research program and obtaining competitive external research grant funding. The role will also work both independently and collaboratively with research teams within the School and undertake the supervision of research students.

This position is located at our picturesque St Lucia campus, renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses, and located just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, and with outstanding public transport connections, our 114-hectare site provides a perfect work environment – you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.

For US applicants, please note that Australian Universities use British terminology, as such a Lecturer position is equivalent to that of a non-tenured Assistant Professor position in the US.

You should also have a strong desire to develop a successful and highly-productive research career aligned with the School's research themes, the capacity to work with multidisciplinary research teams, outstanding communication and engagement skills, and the ability to work effectively in teaching teams and actively contribute to the curriculum.
