Remuneration and Benefits

The classification for this position is Academic
Level A (LEVA), which has an annual
remuneration range of $79,954 to $108,490 pa.
Which is inclusive of an annual salary range of
$68,139 to $92,458 pa and 17%
superannuation.

In July 2020 QUT staff voted in favour of a
variation to its Enterprise Agreements. The
variations were approved by the Fair Work
Commission in August 2020.

The variation impacts leave loading (for new
staff no loading will be paid or accrued during
the period the variation is in effect), salary
increases (the salary increase which was due
to occur in the first full pay period of December
2020 has been deferred until the first full pay
period of December 2021) and superannuation
(superannuation will be paid to staff as though
the salary increase which would have been



paid in December 2020 has taken effect and,
subject to the rules of the superannuation fund,
a defined benefit member will continue to make
contributions in alignment with the contributions
made by the University). A link to the variation
is here.

We actively seek to attract and retain the best
talent to the organisation, and in exceptional
circumstances, the successful candidate may
be granted a salary loading in addition to the
above salary range.

Beyond personal and professional fulfilment, a
career at QUT brings a broad range of tangible
benefits. With competitive remuneration
including superannuation, the University offers
real and generous benefits.

QUT is a high quality and flexible organisation
that is proud of its excellent employment
conditions which include but are not limited to:

  • Reduced working year scheme
  • Parental leave provisions
  • Study support encompassing leave and
financial assistance
  • Comprehensive professional development
  • Salary Packaging

Further benefits can be found at the Working
at QUT page.


Information for applicants

This position is open to applicants who have
unrestricted work rights in Australia for the
duration of the fixed-term appointment. In
support of our strategic priority of Indigenous
Australian success, Aboriginal Australians and
Torres Strait Islander people are encouraged
to apply

For further information about the position,
please contact Dr Pascal Duijf, Group Leader,

contact Human Resources on (07) 3138 4104.

Candidates who are interested in the position
are encouraged to apply even though they
may feel they are not strong on individual
selection criteria.

In assessing merit, the panel will take into
consideration “performance or achievement
relative to opportunity”. We recognise that
many staff today have a range of personal
circumstances, and career histories that

challenge traditional ideas of an academic
staff member. This may mean, for example,
prioritising the quality of achievement rather
than the quantity, as considerations of part-
time employment, career interruptions and
significant periods of leave are taken into
account when assessing performance or
achievement.

The selection panel is also committed to
conducting a process which is fair and free
from bias, including unconscious bias.

When applying for this position, your
application must include the following:
  • Cover Letter;

  • A document indicating how you meet the

above Selection Criteria (maximum 4
