The Opportunity

The Department of Business Law and Taxation (BLT) is a leading business law department and part of the Monash Business School. It has a comprehensive teaching and research program that focuses on the many dimensions of commercial, business and taxation law both locally and internationally.

The Monash Business School is based in Melbourne, the world’s most liveable city for a 6th consecutive year (ranked by the Economist Intelligence Unit). Melbourne is well known for its coffee, restaurants, night-life and is recognised as the sporting capital of Australia. Melbourne is proud of its excellent healthcare, education, diverse culture and booming infrastructure; making Melbourne a welcoming and exciting place to work and to call home.

BLT is one of seven departments in the Monash Business School, awarded with the esteemed 'triple crown' accreditation of AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA placing us in the top 1% of business schools in the world! The discipline of Law at Monash University was also awarded the highest possible (5-star) rating in the latest Excellence in Research for Australia Report.

The Department has Associate Professor and Professor positions focusing on one or more of the following areas: commercial law, business law, corporations law, taxation law, banking law, finance law, sustainability regulation, financial services regulation, workplace law, IP Law, marketing law, Asian business law and international trade law. 

The successful applicants will be skilled educators with a proven commitment to high quality teaching, as well as to ongoing scholarly research in a research-intensive university and have excellent interpersonal skills and be committed to making a positive contribution to leadership in an academic environment and to our collegial culture.

As law and taxation scholars, the members of BLT have a unique opportunity to demonstrate to students the key role that law plays in a global business context. We conduct research about law, taxation, human rights and corporate social responsibility using traditional legal, empirical legal, comparative and interdisciplinary methods. Our location within the Monash Business School gives us opportunities to push the boundaries of legal research to explore questions about law that cannot be addressed using traditional methods. We explore the impact of law, regulatory alternatives beyond formal law; and access to justice.
