Hi Geographers,

Two new lectureships have been created at Curtin to work within the School of Built Environment (in which geography and planning are located). Also, two new research only positions have been created in the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute (CUSP).

All 4 positions are open to geographers.

I would be very appreciative if you could pass this information on to any candidates you think suitable for these level B positions.

All the best,


Lecturer, Teaching and Research – Sustainability and Built Environment x 2
Five years fixed term, full-time
$97,076 - $115,277 (ALB)

Sustainability and the built environment is a key area of research strength in the Faculty of Humanities and a cornerstone of the Faculty’s teaching programs. It is the primary responsibility of the School of Built Environment and the Curtin University Sustainability Policy (CUSP) Institute.

This position, which is co-situated in the School of Built Environment and CUSP, has been created to advance the Faculty’s above-world-standard research performance in sustainability and urban and regional planning, and enhance its exciting cross-disciplinary teaching program in the built environment.

They will have the skills to undertake industry-facing and industry-embedded research, attract national and international competitive grant funding, and build strong global partnerships. They will be required to teach in the School of Built Environment degree programs and contribute to the CUSP program of scholarly research, while integrating teaching and research activities between the two areas.

To be successful, you will need:
- A doctoral qualification in planning, sustainability or a related built environment discipline with a track record of quality publications in urban and regional planning, sustainability policy, urban design, or geography.
- Demonstrated experience delivering high quality teaching and learning outcomes at a tertiary level.
