The Opportunity

The Communications and Media Studies program at Monash University is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified 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.

This position requires 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, Cultural Economy. Other possibilities include a first year undergraduate units, Masters units or new units to be developed by the appointees.

The successful candidates 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 with expertise in cultural and creative industries and/or media and cultural policy. You will also be able to 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.

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