Opportunity to be part of a sector leading program
Western Sydney University has established a sector-leading program to strengthen career pathways for casual academic staff by creating the equivalent of 150 full time positions by 1 March 2025. The WSU decasualisation program will play a significant role in reducing the level of insecure work in the Australian higher education sector.

With this in mind, the University is looking to recruit candidates it can invest in and develop over the long term, including training over the confirmation period to support candidates to retain stable, ongoing employment. On that basis, the University is looking for candidates who have full time working rights until at least 1 March 2025, in place at the time of application.

Successful candidates will undertake teaching, while also having the opportunity to develop a research portfolio and contribute to the University through governance activities at the School and/or University level.

Successful candidates will be subject to a two-year confirmation period and must provide evidence at the time of application that they:

  • have been engaged as a casual academic for at least 2 teaching sessions within the previous 2 years at an Australian Higher Education institution; and
  • hold or have submitted all requirements for a PhD or other relevant Level 10 AQF qualification; and
  • have not previously held an ongoing position with an Australian Higher Education provider in the previous 3 years; and
  • are an Australian Citizen, Permanent Resident of Australia or have full time working rights until at least 1 March 2025, in place at the time of application.

Candidates must submit evidence of the above requirements, along with any evidence they have of successful teaching results, such as Student Feedback on Teaching survey outcomes.

School of Law
The School of Law is committed to excellence and innovation in teaching, research and community engagement. It has a research focus on Public and constitutional law, Human Rights and Social Justice issues and a leading clinical program through the Justice Clinic.

The School offers LLB, JD and combined LLB undergraduate degrees, and an LLM degree, as well as providing law teaching for business degrees at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. LLB programs are taught at Parramatta and Campbelltown and there are approximately 1,6000 EFTSL in the Law School.

The Role
A substantial part of the role involves teaching, including the development, design and delivery of innovative and engaging teaching materials. You will also be allocated time to develop your research portfolio and have the opportunity to be mentored in your research by Senior academic staff within the University. In addition, you will be expected to participate in administrative and governance related activities.

To be successful in the role, you will need to demonstrate excellence in teaching and a high level of energy and commitment to further developing a research profile that is fresh and relevant to the particular discipline.

All academics are expected to teach into one of the Priestley 11 core subjects and the School currently has specific needs in private and commercial law.

This is a full-time, ongoing appointment based at Westerns Parramatta South Campus.
