We have created the following position at the University of New South Wales, 
Sydney, Australia. It represents an all too rare opportunity to integrate 
permaculture principles into the "mainstream" of higher education.

The position has been advertised in the Sydney press, also through Sydney 
permaculture and environment networks. To date the response has not been 
overwhelming, perhaps because of the requirement for a PDC. We are prepared 
to be flexible on this - the main point is that applicants should 
demonstrate a familiarity with PC principles.

If anyone out there is interested, please contact me directly, not at this 
address but at:  p.osmond at

Regards, Paul
