About the School of Computing and Information Systems (CIS)

We are international research leaders with a focus on delivering impact and making a real difference in three key areas: data and knowledge, platforms and systems, and people and organisations.

At the School of Computing... and Information Systems, you'll find curious people, big problems, and plenty of chances to create a real difference in the world.

The Opportunity

You will join our successful HCI team in the School of Computing and Information Systems (CIS) and be working with world-leading researchers on a range of exciting areas.

These include:
• design of interactive systems

• natural user interfaces
• games
• digital health
• design for the ageing population
• physiological sensing
• human-centered AI

• and mixed reality

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work with state-of-the art facilities, including an industry-grade usability lab with multiple observation rooms and audiovisual capture.

You will also have access to a recently renovated lab that allows for the design and development of device prototypes, full-body motion capture, 360 immersive video projection, and eye tracking (both desktop and mobile).

The labs will be integrated into a purpose-built facility to be hosted in the Melbourne Connect precinct in our Parkville Campus, due to open in late 2020.

In addition, there is opportunity to collaborate with several exciting initiatives. These include a new NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence on Digital Interactive Technologies for Chronic Health Conditions, an ARC Training Centre in Cognitive Computing for Medical Technologies, and ARC projects in Human-Centered AI as well as Smartphone use.

You will contribute to our extensive teaching program, including an HCI-focused stream of the Masters of Information Technology. You will also have an opportunity to be part of a broader initiative to enhance the Engineering Design expertise in the Melbourne School of Engineering.

You will also make a significant contribution to the teaching and administration of the school. We welcome applications from researchers interested in interdisciplinary research. Active collaboration with other research groups at the University of Melbourne is encouraged, as is interaction with industry and government agencies.

About You:

You will be an aspiring leader in HCI, with ambition to publish in high quality journals and conferences, mentor research students, and secure independent grant funding to support a program of research in collaboration with the HCI team.

At the level of Lecturer, you will be capable of demonstrating:
