The Opportunity

Are you interested in applying your games development expertise in an educational environment?

If you are after career change, Monash University can help make it happen. In the only stand-alone Faculty of Information Technology in Australia, we can offer you the opportunity to shape a new curriculum, develop new innovative teaching methods and produce the next generation of games developers. In this position, you will be part of a dedicated and enthusiastic teaching team, and have the opportunity to work with researchers in the sensiLab (link), our innovation laboratory for visualisation, interaction and fabrication.

We are seeking a dedicated and enthusiastic communicator to fulfil a new role as a Lecturer (Practice Academic) in the Faculty of Information Technology to help us roll out a new studio-based Games Development major. If you have the ability and drive to design, develop and deliver innovative and exciting curriculum incorporating cutting-edge industry practice to produce employable graduates, this could be the position for you.

As a Practice Academic, you will:

• help strengthen links between the games industry and the University
• engage and collaborate with professional bodies to ensure we deliver an education based on industry best-practice
• identify and develop opportunities for student engagement and practical work experience in the games industry context
• provide leadership with computer game related events and activities, such as Computer Games Boot Camp (cgbc.monash.edu)

Your role will include designing and developing engaging teaching materials as well as high-quality and innovative assessment, teaching large and small classes, supervising final year capstone studio projects and acting as an adviser for undergraduates.

To be successful in this role you should have substantial experience in the games industry, and a Masters or PhD qualification in a relevant discipline area would be an advantage.

If you feel that you have the skills and experience to thrive in this role we encourage you to apply.

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

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs"
