    The Opportunity

    The Bachelor of Media Communications program at Monash University is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified Lecturer to contribute to teaching and research in the field. The Bachelor of Media Communications program operates within the School of Media, Film and Journalism in the Faculty of Arts.

    The Bachelor of Media Communication (BMC) is a specialist degree that responds to an increasing global demand for graduates with a deep understanding of the role of media in contemporary social, cultural and economic life, as well as strong professional skills in communication, media, journalism, screen, and PR. The degree is informed by a rich tradition of critical and historical thinking in the study of media, as well as by an experienced Industry Board that works to maximise the quality and relevance of the degree.

    The appointee will need to be an active, committed, and innovative pedagogue who will contribute to high-quality teaching in the BMC, while employing multiple learning approaches that help to accelerate students' knowledge and links to Industry. The appointee will be engaged in creating modules that are effective in advancing graduate employability through industry engagement and exposure to workplace contexts.

    At Level B, they will have the capacity to contribute to teaching and research across one or more of the streams in the BMC: Journalism, Media, Public Relations, and Screen. In particular, they will contribute to industry- focussed units and experiences in the BMC, as well as professional placement programs.

    The successful appointee will coordinate units, prepare and present lectures and/or seminars, tutorials, undertake marking, contribute to curriculum development, and supervise HDR students. The units in which they will be involved will be negotiated on appointment and will change over time.

    The appointee for this position will possess research expertise in at least one of the following areas: Journalism, Media, Public Relations, and Screen. Their research publications and/or creative outputs will demonstrate expertise in, and knowledge of, critical theoretical traditions and sociocultural perspectives in their specified area(s).

    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. This position at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
