Women Only

As a member of the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) program, Swinburne is taking positive steps to effect change and we are committed to advancing gender equality in academia and in particular in STEM disciplines. Department of Education, Skills and Employment data (2020) showed that 46% of University staff in teaching and research roles were women but women only filled 28% of STEM teaching and research roles.  While women comprise almost half of the nation’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) PhD graduates, less than 20% of senior academics in STEM disciplines at Australian universities are women. We understand that to attract and retain the best scientists and ensure research excellence and impact, it is important that we commit to providing diverse, secure, exciting and rewarding career paths to our best researchers who will be our future STEM academic leaders.  

Pursuant to a Special Measure under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic), we will only consider applications from suitably qualified women for these positions (includes all people who identify as women).
