The Opportunity
The Faculty of Information Technology is seeking lecturers (Level B/C) to join a highly motivated team of teaching and research staff. You will be expected to contribute to the teaching, research, administrative and engagement activities of the faculty and the University.

Specifically, applicants for the position must be capable of undertaking high-quality teaching in one or more of the following areas:

  • Computational Science (especially computational simulation modelling and visualisation)
  • Network and Information Security
  • Software Engineering
  • Mobile Computing
  • Interaction Design and Digital Creativity.

In addition, applicants for the position must be capable of contributing to the research agenda of at least one of the faculty's strategic research flagship programs:

  • Computational Biology
  • Machine Learning
  • Modelling, Optimisation and Visualisation
  • IT for Resilient Communities.

However, excellent applicants will be considered, even if your IT research falls outside of these research flagships.

You will have a PhD in a relevant field of information technology or engineering. Also you will have demonstrated capacity to independently and effectively conduct lectures, tutorials, assessment and examination marking in relevant unit areas, and evidence of teaching quality (eg student evaluations, peer review, innovations in teaching delivery).

The positions will be based at either the Caulfield or Clayton campuses, but the appointees will be expected to carry out duties at both campuses as required.

These roles are full-time positions; however flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Appointment will be made at a level appropriate to the successful applicant's qualifications, experience and in accordance with classification standards for each level.
