RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise. Our mission is to help shape the world through research, innovation, teaching and engagement, and to create transformative experiences for our students, getting them ready for life and work.

The College of Design and Social Context encompasses RMIT University's renowned art, architecture, media, communication, built environment, design, education and social science disciplines and is comprised of eight Schools. The College has 24,500 students and 1,000 staff.

The School of Architecture and Urban Design delivers innovative scholarship in architecture, landscape architecture, interiors and related fields of design. Innovation in learning and teaching is a key strength of the school. Practice-based and vertically integrated scholarship involving students, staff and practitioners provides an engagement in research-led design projects.

The Role and Your Responsibilities

The School of Architecture and Urban Design seeks an Associate Lecturer who will be engaged in teaching and research activities that consider the role and use of contemporary technologies relevant to a range of interior futures and an expanded understanding of interior design. The successful candidate will be responsible for carrying out teaching activities and for maintaining and advancing their scholarly, research and/or professional capabilities relevant to the discipline.

The Associate Lecturer will be required to teach and conduct classes in disciplines relevant to their field of expertise and assist in the academic and administrative, consultative and coordination tasks involved with these courses. Functions associated with the position include presentation of lectures and tutorials, assessment of students and course administration in line with the University's quality assurance requirements. The Associate Lecturer is also required to undertake research activities in line with the University's research strategy.

Skills & Experience Required

The successful candidate will be a design practitioner with a demonstrated emerging design practice informed by practice-led research. The Associate Lecturer will be required to bring understanding of a broad range of contemporary technologies both analogue and digital. Ideally this should include knowledge in design processes, manufacturing, production of experiential or ephemeral environments and other innovative engagements with technologies. It is expected that the candidate will bring critical thinking upon how contemporary and emergent technologies can innovatively affect a range of interior futures, drive venturous design and allow speculation upon new potentials for expanded interior design practice.

The successful candidate will have demonstrated ability to teach broadly in the discipline area of Interior Design and will have qualification in the relevant discipline area and have commenced or enrolled to commence their PhD.
