Lectureship in Film & Television and Digital Media Design Swinburne University of Technology

The Faculty of Design at Swinburne University of Technology is adding several new positions this year to meet the needs of a growing student body and our increasing research intensity. We are now adding three positions each in media that may be of interest to readers of this list—one in digital media design, and two in film and television.

At Swinburne University of Technology, we focus on design as thought and action for solving problems and imagining new futures. We emphasize strategic design to create value through innovative products and services.

Creativity, critical inquiry, and ethics guide the Swinburne philosophy of respectful design. We value understanding, empathy, and appreciation for people, for nature, and for the world we shape through design. Our designers, researchers, and graduates serve business, industry, and the public sector. We base our actions and choices on sustainability principles for positive social and economic outcomes.

We emphasize rigorous research for effective results in today’s challenging design profession. All new appointments to the academic staff have a PhD degree. Teaching, creative practice, and research are the foundation of robust professional education. We expect senior staff to have a strong research profile, and we expect junior staff to
demonstrate the potential for innovative research. Our emphasis published research enables us to share what we do with Australia and with the world.

We describe our faculty culture as: equitable, respectful, creative, innovative, resilient, vibrant, and inspired. We state our focus in four words: “Design respectfully, grow responsibly.”
