Curtin University’s School of Science is seeking the expertise of science communicator or education to fill a full-time position for a short-term contract.
Mathematics, science, technology and engineering are all vital to our way of life, our health, and our economy, and Curtin University is extremely proud of its excellent record in research and education in these disciplines. To show its commitment to these important areas, the University is making major investments into the new Resources & Chemistry Precinct, a sustainability institute and to the development of emerging sciences & ICT.
The activities in the School of Science span the disciplines of Chemistry, Mathematics & Statistics, Medical Imaging, Applied Physics, Environmental Biology and Agriculture and Science & Mathematics Education. The School works closely with the other Science schools and Faculties at Curtin as well as collaborations and partnerships with external organisations.
As a School, we are keen to share our passion for Mathematics and Science, and the rich environment that we have created. We must promote the importance of these disciplines and the huge variety of careers that are available to those who gain qualifications in them, increase awareness of Curtin University as a provider of high-quality relevant education and research in these areas, and increase student awareness of and participation in our courses. This position has a fundamental role in assisting us to achieve these objectives.
Key elements of the position are coordination of the science outreach program and the staff within it, development (of new and innovative activities), event management and servicing of current partnerships (with schools, students, scientists, organisations and users of science).
