The Arts and Cultural Management Program is located in the School of Culture and Communication, one of five Schools in the Faculty of Arts. The School hosts a range of graduate teaching programs including Global Media and Communication, Arts Curatorship and Creative Writing, Publishing and Editing as well as an arts-focussed humanities undergraduate curriculum.

Arts and Cultural Management is a significant area of international graduate education in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne and represents a growing field of engagement with the global and national cultural sector for the University. Following a period of significant growth, the Arts and Cultural Management Program seeks an energetic and committed individual who is able to take responsibility for teaching and research in key areas of the program: arts and cultural production in the Asia-Pacific region, cultural economies, creative entrepreneurship and convergent models of the cultural and creative industries.
The Arts and Cultural Management program is focused on the relationship between management practices and creative production, in Australian and international contexts. The program delivers subjects in the key areas of management, law, cultural and industry policy and marketing. Challenging analytical content further assists graduates to participate in the ethical, political and philosophical dimensions of creative practices in an international context. Students can choose electives which enable them to develop a closer understanding of specific industry sectors including the moving image, the performing arts, visual arts, media and heritage.
Applicants will be expected to have a PhD and research and publication profile in arts management or a related field; and a working knowledge of global trends within the sector. They will have expertise in one or more teaching areas of the program, arts management, the commercial arts and entertainment sector, cultural economy and the creative industries. Candidates should have demonstrated graduate supervision experience, and a track record in curriculum development and teaching innovation. The appointee will be expected to develop research partnerships, projects and publications in collaboration with other members of staff and foster international partnerships. Candidates with experience or interests in research methods, methodological innovation and knowledge translation are especially welcome.
The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching at the graduate levels and will assist in the development of new subjects as appropriate. The incumbent will also undertake research resulting in publications with leading publishers in the field, and will take on administrative tasks associated with the appointment. The successful candidate will also undertake work towards developing and strengthening relationships between the program and relevant industry and cultural sector organisations, both nationally and internationally.
