A division within the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (MCM), the discipline of Music Therapy is the largest of its kind in any Australian music school, having been established in 1978 and grown steadily over the past three decades. It is a flourishing area that has produced graduates of outstanding quality and competitive success who fill international positions in Universities and have established numerous new positions. The division focuses on research driven practice, with a balance of theory, methods, clinical training and research.

We invite applications from experienced music therapy researchers and educators who have demonstrated their commitment to building partnerships with graduate researchers, academic colleagues and industry partners.  Ideal candidates will have the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will enable them to become leaders within the music profession nationally and internationally as well as making an academic, research and pedagogical contribution to music therapy within the MCM.

You will hold a PhD in music therapy, have expertise as a music therapy teacher in both face-to-face and online platforms, have demonstrated teaching skills at the University level, accreditation with the Australian Music Therapy Association and an academic publication record.
