Our Organisation

RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise. Our mission is to help shape the world through research, innovation, teaching and engagement, and to create transformative experiences for our students, getting them ready for life and work.

The School of Media and Communication aims to produce graduates who will respond creatively to the challenges of a rapidly changing international, media-driven environment. Media and Communication has strong links with industry, and responds to ongoing change brought about by technology and convergence. The School is positioned as a major contributor to and leader of the debate within media-driven industries.

The Role and Your Responsibilities

The Lecturer, Media is expected to contribute to the teaching and research efforts of the School in disciplines related to their field of expertise, which should incorporate recent industry experience in radio production, podcasting, and/or sound design. More specifically, the Lecturer is responsible for carrying out teaching activities within the Undergraduate Media program and should demonstrate an ability to integrate their professional and/or creative practice with teaching and research. The Lecturer will be encouraged to bring their industrial knowledge and experience into their teaching practice and course offerings for students.

The Lecturer is also expected to actively promote the program by establishing and maintaining memberships, links and partnerships with academic, industry and professional communities. The Lecturer is expected to work collaboratively and collegially with fellow academics within the teaching team, and update colleagues and students on developments in their subject area or specialisation. The Lecturer may be responsible for course coordination and may be asked to undertake more specialised administrative and program-based leadership tasks within the School.
