The Opportunity

The Criminology Program in the School of Social Sciences is seeking to appoint a dynamic academic with outstanding research potential, ambitious research objectives and a commitment to teaching excellence.

Criminology at Monash is internationally renowned for its global focus on crimes that cause widespread measurable harm. Monash criminologists examine crime and crime control in a time of massive social change and global mobility. We have a strong research culture, led by a dynamic group of researchers who are collectively leading the expansion of Criminological inquiry in Australia and internationally. Monash Criminology is distinct in Australia for its consistent success in attracting national and international competitive funding for major research. We are research leaders in global fields of inquiry including gender, migration and border regulation, state and corporate harm, human trafficking and labour exploitation. We lead national and international research on imprisonment and social control, gender and homicide, gendered violence and policing. Monash Criminology consistently delivers excellence in teaching and supervision. We teach over 2600 undergraduates every year in Units that are closely aligned with our research strengths, and we supervise over 25 post graduate students.

The School of Social Sciences is known for quality education, outstanding research and international engagement across Monash University’s six globally networked campuses and international alliances (Malaysia, Prato-Italy, Mumbai-India, Suzhou-China, Johannesburg-South Africa and Warwick University-UK), and interdisciplinary teaching and research collaborations on global problems such as sustainability, human security, gender justice and good governance. The Criminology program is a major contributor to the School’s interdisciplinary teaching and research portfolio.

Applicants demonstrating high potential and achievement in core fields of research and teaching in Criminology will be seriously considered.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
