Position overview

This ongoing position is situated within the ANU School of Art and Design. Established within the School in 2016, the Design program combines contemporary digital practices with hands-on studio making. It prepares graduates who are skilled, inventive, versatile and ready to engage with present and future global opportunities and challenges. Our program is strategically undisciplined in recognition of the need for designers of the future to navigate complexity across traditional boundaries. We support a focus on social and environmental responsibility and encourage students to develop an ethical framework as emerging design practitioners. 

The School is seeking a Lecturer to contribute to this ambitious, future-focused design program. The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Design or a related field, contribute to our research and education profile, and have an active research and publication agenda.

The successful candidate will be committed to enhancing innovative design teaching and practice at all levels (undergraduate to PhD), and undertaking supervisory roles. Applicants with teaching and practical experience in one or more of the following areas will be highly regarded:

  • digital design
  • visual communication design
  • user experience design

We also host 13 Australian Research Council Future Fellows and three ARC Laureates. A hub of vibrant activity, we host more than 270 lectures, concerts and exhibitions each year, most of which are open to the public.
