G'day !

Applications are now open for two new positions in Media & Communication at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia:

Lecturer (Media and Communication)

The successful applicant will primarily be responsible for teaching and coordinating undergraduate units. Unit coordination responsibilities will be tailored to make best use of the specialisations of the successful appointee, but could include the Media and Communication undergraduate units New Media Technologies, Introduction to Media and Communication and Media Myth Busting; and the postgraduate unit New Media Studies.

The successful applicant will be encouraged to maintain and develop a research profile commensurate with the level of appointment and will have access to the Faculty short term professional development scheme for the purpose of supporting research activity.

Associate Lecturer/Lecturer - Professional Communication

Communication skills are recognised globally as key professional skills, both within the emergent Creative Industries and across the broader service industries and professions. We are seeking to strengthen QUT's long record of achievement in the Professional Communication field by appointing a new staff member who can contribute to units covering applied theory and practice in organisational and group communication, political communication, strategic speech communication, professional writing, and design and management of communication resources.

The Associate Lecturer/Lecturer will contribute to the delivery of a range of Media and Communication and interfaculty courses, across a number of Professional Communication units. The successful applicant will join the Journalism, Media & Communication discipline and will contribute to the development of course material and to the coordination and teaching across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate professional communication units both within and beyond the Creative Industries Faculty.

Both are ongoing and full-time (i.e. essentially equivalent to tenured positions, under the US system). Applications close on 3 November.

Note that the first of these is open to domestic Australian applicants (citizens / permanent residents) only.
