Position Summary

In line with the Melbourne School of Engineering’s strategic direction (MSE2025), these two positions are hosted as academic teaching roles within the School of Computing and Information Systems (CIS). The School has increasingly focussed on its graduate teaching and its research program and aims to be one of the great Schools of Engineering & IT in the world.

The School wishes to appoint two Teaching Fellows / Senior Teaching Fellows to pioneer the refreshing the methodologies used, development of an innovated- and project-based Masters’ course with a focus on the computer science, software engineering, or information systems discipline, and also link the projects with industry for students to gain valuable insights on large-scale contemporary projects. This revolutionary body of work will engage in leading-edge educational pedagogies.

The successful candidates will be passionate about education in computing and/or information systems and enjoy teaching. They will recognise the unique opportunity to create and deliver a program from the ground up, establish a more effective relationship with the relevant industries as well as appreciate the challenges to implement these changes through the subjects taught at CIS. Furthermore, the candidates will be seeking to develop an international profile in innovative IT education.

This is an opportunity to join and help build a team that derives great personal and professional fulfilment through its commitment to introducing dedicated IT graduates to organisations and a community in need of their skills.

The University seeks to increase the diversity of its workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this, MSE is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across engineering disciplines. Under a Special Measure, under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) the School is seeking to lift the representation of women from 20% in 2017 to at least 25% over the next 5 years, and strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates.

The Melbourne School of Engineering is strongly committed to supporting diversity and flexibility in the workplace. Applications for part-time or other flexible working arrangements will be welcomed and will be fully considered subject to meeting the inherent requirements of the position.
