RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise.  Our mission is to help shape the world through research, innovation, teaching and engagement, and to create transformative experiences for our students, getting them ready for life and work.

The School of Media and Communication aims to produce graduates who will respond creatively to the challenges of a rapidly changing international, media-driven environment. Media and Communication has strong links with industry, and responds to ongoing change brought about by technology and convergence. The School is positioned as a major contributor to and leader of the debate within media-driven industries.

This Lecturer, Media position is open to a radio specialist with proven expertise, experience, and teaching capacity across live and pre-recorded audio production, that can include podcasting.
