Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Indigenous Rock Art Project

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Indigenous Rock Art Project

Reference: 102379
Element: Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research
Overview:
The Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research (GCSCR) is a broad-based humanities and social science research centre operating within Griffith University’s Arts, Education & Law Group. It is closely aligned with the School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science. The Centre has recently reshaped its research programs and priorities. One of its themes is Heritage and Wellbeing, led by Professor Paul Taçon and Associate Professor Sarah Baker. The Centre also hosts the Place, Evolution and Rock Art Heritage Unit (PERAHU), directed by Prof Taçon. Recently, Prof Taçon was awarded a prestigious Australian Research Council Australian Laureate Fellowship with funding for Postdoctoral Fellowships and PhD scholarships. The overall aim of the Laureate research project is to ensure the most precious aspects of tangible heritage Indigenous people say needs safeguarding – rock art landscapes – are better conserved, appreciated and understood for the benefit of contemporary communities and future generations.
The Role:
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow position is suited to outstanding doctoral graduates who will carry out high-quality, internationally relevant research while also building the research capacity and performance of the Unit and Centre. This position would be based at the Gold Coast campus in the Centre’s Place, Evolution and Rock Art Heritage Unit (PERAHU) and will conduct research and provide an intellectual contribution to the development of publications, presentations and research reports arising from the Laurate research project directed by Prof Taçon. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will also be required to develop their own case studies within the broader frame of the Laureate project and will be required to undertake essential research administration tasks.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will participate in research activities to answer three key research questions:
1. Why are rock art complexes important for Indigenous people and especially for Indigenous well-being?

2. How can we better conserve and manage rock art landscapes for the benefit of future generations?
3. Why is there currently little rock art conservation concern in Australia compared to many other countries and why do rock art sites continue to be threatened by economic activity (such as mining, agriculture and infrastructure development) before their economic contribution and social values are evaluated?
This is a fixed term (5 years), full time position based at the Gold Coast campus.
The Person:
The successful candidate will have completed a PhD in the last five years in the Humanities or Social Sciences or a cognate discipline, preferably in Archaeology, Anthropology and/or Conservation Science, with a developing publication record; demonstrated experience and understanding of rock art research, history and conservation, as well as heritage and well-being; highly developed skills in conducting, organising and managing research projects; and demonstrated excellent communication skills.
Salary Range:
Research Fellow Grade 1: $69,699 – $81,988 per annum. Salary package including 17% employer superannuation contribution: $81,548 – $95,926 per annum.
