The Opportunity

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

The Communications and Media Studies teaching program offers an undergraduate major to Honours level in the Bachelor of Arts, and teaches into the new Bachelor of Media Communication. It also has thriving graduate programs in the Master of Communications and Media Studies and the Master of Cultural and Creative Industries. The program’s researchers are engaged in a series of internationally-focussed projects that explain what it means to live in an age of powerful media and cultural institutions, proliferating digital and mobile technologies, and everyday media and cultural practices. Projects include those funded by the Australian Research Council and industry partners.

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 appointee 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 Senior Lecturers who are able to coordinate and teach into Masters units, undergraduate units and/or new units to be developed by the appointee.

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 Digital Media Research – Tools and Methods.

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

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check. This position will require a current Victorian Working with Children Check (employment).
