Dear Colleagues,

International Women’s Day provided us with the opportunity to reflect upon the 
diversity within our School. The Melbourne School of Engineering has 182 women 
academic staff, but this represents just 22 per cent of our total academic 
numbers. We are committed to remedying this imbalance and lifting the 
representation of women to 30 per cent by 2022.

To help enact this change, I’m pleased to announce five new continuing 
positions that we are making available to women of exceptional calibre, in all 
fields of engineering, computing and information systems. The five positions 
are across the School and we are accepting applications from all related areas.

 These positions are a key component of a broad suite of programs we have 
implemented at MSE that are aimed at increasing the recruitment, retention and 
promotion of women.

Successful appointees will be given the opportunity to play a significant role 
in realising the industry engagement targets of MSE 2025, develop 
internationally recognised research portfolios, establish funding streams to 
support these portfolios, and to enhance interdisciplinary research within and 
outside the University, whilst contributing to teaching and curriculum 
development within MSE. Applications for part-time or other flexible working 
arrangements will be welcomed and will be fully considered subject to meeting 
the inherent requirements of the position.

Close date: 8 Apr 2018
