A perverted professor who posed as teen heartthrob Justin Bieber to purloin raunchy pics from underage girls has been hammered with more than 900 child sex offences.

Cops say Australian law lecturer Gordon Douglas Chalmers, 42, was charged last November for using Facebook and Skype to groom kids for sex and child porn.

U.S. and German detectives tipped off cops in Brisbane where Chalmers lectures at the Queensland University of Technology.

Chalmers’ most recent sick gambit was to pose as 23-year-old Canadian singer Bieber, currently touring Australia on his Purpose World Tour.

“The fact that so many children could believe that they were communicating with this particular celebrity highlights the need for a serious rethink about the way that we as a society educate our children about online safety,” Det.-Insp. Jon Rouse said in a statement.

“The breadth of offences committed in this instance is frankly horrendous.”

Following the tip off, cops searched Chalmers’ social media accounts and cloud servers where they found a treasure trove of smut. Some of the sex charges go back more than a decade.

He is also charged with rape.

Detectives wouldn’t say how many children were allegedly victimized by the law school sicko or what countries they were in.

But Rouse said: “(The investigation shows) the global reach and skill that child sex offenders have to groom and seduce victims.”

Bieber has an avid army of underage and naive, young girls who worship the Stratford, Ont. native. It was a devotion Chalmers allegedly preyed upon, convincing the Girls that he was the Baby hitmaker and promising his love if they sent him explicit snaps.

It isn’t the first time that a pedophile or sexual opportunist has preyed upon young women.

In 2000, a Mexican man -- dubbed the Ricky Martin Rapist -- preyed upon young American women partying in Tijuana, using his close resemblance to the gay pop star to drug the girls, then rape them.
