Help TOMORROW's Scientists Learn to Communicate

Job available in Sydney, Perth, or Brisbane --

REF 6810 (on UNSW Employment website)
Salary level 6/7 $62K - $74K per year paid on a pro rata (1-2 days/week) basis, plus 9% employer superannuation plus leave loading.
Wonder what it takes to make an effective blog, wiki, podcast, or web video on a scientific topic?  Tomorrow’s scientists will have to know.
To develop ways to train university science students in how to create such ‘new media’, we need a part-time project officer for a multi-university effort.
The position is funded by a grant from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council, one of a dozen or so such grants awarded this year.  We are just over a month into a two-year project.
The project officer is at the heart of the effort.  You will coordinate the work of the four project principals, assisting in finding and refining teaching materials, maintaining communication with others interested in the project, and helping this effort to ‘snowball’.
If you have a background in science, a keen interest in education, curiosity about new media, good organizational ability, and a nice touch with people, then contact us, obtain a position description, and send your CV.
This is a part-time (14 hours per week) fixed-term appointment available for the remaining 10 months of the first phase of the project, with a possibility of  renewal for the second phase for another 12 months.  We may hire one person at two days per week or two individuals, possibly at different sites, at one day per week each.
We seek an ongoing, part-time, project officer to start as late as February 2010 (and have someone providing assistance in the near term already).
Applicants should systematically address the selection criteria in their application.
Having read all the documentation, you may then direct any enquiries to Dr Will Rifkin at willrifkin at unsw.edu.au<mailto:willrifkin at unsw.edu.au>
Applications close 13 November 2009.
