Position Information

Intending applicants must obtain a copy of the position description (which includes selection criteria) prior to preparing and submitting an application. We encourage people to obtain the position description from the Flinders University website: If you’re unable to obtain the information electronically, or for further clarification about the position after reading the position description, contact the person nominated in the advertisement or position description.

Selection Criteria

To enable the appointment committee to assess candidates' suitability for a position, applicants are required to address the selection criteria specified for the particular post. Applicants should address each selection criterion individually and should argue their case by citing evidence to support their claims rather than just presenting a list of facts. Applicants should be aware that if they do not address the selection criteria, they may not be considered for the position.


Please note that the University does not acknowledge receipt of applications. The Committee will contact short listed applicants for interview soon after the closing date for the position. All applicants will be notified by mail at the conclusion of the recruitment process.
