I have a campus interview for a faculty position at an Australian university, and am wondering if anyone has advice on what it's like to interview in Australia, or has seen any useful online resources regarding preparing for such visits? I've found a bit through googling, but not much. The schedule seems fairly different from the campus visits I've had in the States, in that the job talk is a bit shorter and there is a formal interview with the search committee… and that's about it (plus MAYBE a dinner and some one-on-one meetings, but those don't seem like a given). Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated!

I work at an Australian university as a post-doc, but I had an interview conducted remotely via Skype. The only real piece of advice I have is that if the job has selection criteria, then make sure you highlight those points. I think you obviously got to the interview phase so you probably did well on it already, but I do know it is an important part of the hiring process. Beyond that, I know little of the process for faculty jobs.
Thanks for the info, Anon, I appreciate it! I know the selection criteria are key (as they were in the application phase), so I'll be sure to play those up.
