50 Vice Chancellor’s Research Fellowships, Western Sydney University, Australia. Deadline: 22 September 2019.
Western Sydney is recruiting 50 early and mid-career researchers, nationally and internationally, over the next five years through a new Vice Chancellor’s Fellowship Scheme. One of these will be in Cultural Policy and Planning with the Institute for Culture and Society. The Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow or Senior Research Fellow with expertise in this focus area will work in close partnership with a range of cultural agencies, local governments and intergovernmental organizations in the analysis and design of cultural infrastructure and cultural development planning at a local level and international level, including arts strategies and cultural policies.
It is anticipated that the Research/Senior Research Fellow roles will have a 70% research component. The remainder of their workload will involve contributing to the School/Institute teaching program including, but not limited to the preparation and delivery of lectures & seminars, development of course material with the appropriate advice and support of more senior staff, marking and assessment and student consultation.
