Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Communications and Media Studies
The Communications and Media Studies program at Monash University is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified Lecturer and Senior Lecturer to contribute to teaching and research in the field. The Communications and Media Studies program operates within the School of Media, Film and Journalism. Its research agenda includes investigations into the governance, practices, theories and cultures of communications industries and audiences. It offers an undergraduate major to Honours level in the Bachelor of Arts. It has thriving graduate programs in the Master of Communications and Media Studies and the Master of Cultural and Creative Industries. Current Australian Research Council funded projects include research into sports media broadcasting, popular music histories in Melbourne, urban cultural policy, graduate career trajectories in visual arts and creative writing, the exchange between 'fringe' and 'mainstream' cultural practices in Australia and the history of public service broadcasting.
These positions require active and innovative academics to contribute to quality teaching through unit coordination and project supervision at undergraduate, Honours and Masters level. The successful appointees will coordinate units, prepare and present lectures and/or seminars, undertake marking and contribute to curriculum development. The units in which they will be involved will be negotiated on appointment. The discipline is looking particularly for academics to coordinate and teach a Masters coursework unit, Communications Research Methods. Other possibilities include a first year undergraduate unit Understanding the Media, the Masters unit Communications Theories and Practices or new units to be developed by the appointees.
The appointees will hold a PhD in the discipline area and show capacity to contribute strongly to research development in Communication and Media Studies at Monash. We would be particularly interested in applicants who are able to combine critical Media Studies approaches with an interest or expertise in strategic communication or another area of professional practice and/or expertise in feminist media studies The appointees should also show capacity for development in leadership roles, particularly in the management of Masters programs.
These roles are full-time positions; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
