Flinders University is a globally focused, locally engaged institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research.
Flinders is ranked the number one South Australian university for teaching quality, learning engagement and student support. 90% of our assessed research has been ranked at or above world standard. Flinders’ commitment to making a positive impact is reflected in our strategic plan Making a Difference: the 2025 Agenda.
To achieve the University’s 2025 Agenda the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences is looking to appoint outstanding academics across a range of discipline areas and levels of seniority.
The College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences enjoys a well-justified reputation for excellence in teaching and research.
Encompassing teaching and research activities within languages, culture and communication, social sciences, performing and creative arts, and history and archaeology, we aim to bring together high profile interdisciplinary and disciplinary projects dedicated to major cultural, environmental, geographical, historical and social challenges of our time.
Humanities at Flinders
With research activity currently ranked as ‘above world standard’, historians and archaeologists at Flinders University investigate the recent and the much more distant past. Australian and South Australian history are key areas of focus, particularly war studies, humanitarianism and migration history. The College is home to the 2017 and 2018 South Australian Historian of the Year.
In English literature, Flinders staff have excelled in publications relating to the Early Modern period, producing works dealing with satire and the history of emotions. Modern and contemporary English literature are also areas of interest. Flinders researchers make substantial contributions to research in feminist criticism, to the study of comic and satirical modes of expression, and to new forms of literary communication, including digital and visual.
Flinders is continuing to enforce its strength in philosophy, particularly in analytical and continental areas. Focus lies in moral and political philosophy, where research also strengthens activities in other disciplines in the College, such as indigenous studies, women’s studies and sociology.
If you’re excited by change, if you have a passion for excellence and innovation, and if you want to work in an organisation dedicated to student success and outstanding research, this is your opportunity to make an impact.
