Lecturer in Criminology
School of Law
Three year fixed-term, full time position
Lecturer Level B | $93k-$110k plus 17% employer superannuation contributions
Salary Packaging opportunities
The Bachelor of Criminology and the corresponding majors in Criminal Behaviour, Crime Science and Legal Studies have enjoyed enormous growth over recent years. Criminology forms an integral part of the School of Law at Murdoch University with which it shares a world-class learning environment and a commitment to excellence in education.
The Lecturer in Criminology will be teaching focussed, with a strong commitment to engage with students and their learning success. Tasks will include the delivery of lectures, tutorials and workshops, developing units, having input in program and curriculum development, creating learning materials and activities (for classroom and online learning), and designing and marking assessments.
The position will collaborate with existing staff within the discipline and in cognate areas to supervise Honours and PhD students. Whereas teaching and teaching related activities will take up the bulk of the responsibilities and can take up to 80% of the workload, there will be some room to develop or continue to develop a research or scholarly record.
Skills and Experience
The successful candidate will have a PhD in criminology or a related area. Teaching experience and familiarity with the developments in teaching and learning in a tertiary environment, including teaching online and through Learning Management Systems will be crucial. However we also encourage applications from candidates with relevant and substantial professional experience who can demonstrate a passion for teaching and a willingness to develop their skills. Effective communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to work as part of a collegial team are also of utmost importance.
Applicants should refer to the Position Description for further detail on the duties, skills and experience required for this role.
