See the full job ad here: http://jobs.uq.edu.au/caw/en/job/505313/lecturersenior-lecturer-in-digital-media
Applications are due 19 April 11.55pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
We are seeking a colleague in Communication and Digital Media to collaborate in teaching and research that responds critically to contemporary media cultures and industries characterised by the emergence of media platforms, the ubiquity of data collection and analysis, and the accelerating use of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The candidate will join us at a critical juncture, playing a crucial role in shaping the nature and scope of our growing programs, namely the Digital Media major within the Bachelor of Communication.
We are looking for someone whose teaching and research speaks to and investigates the intersection between the practice and the critical theorization of digital media. UQ’s Bachelor of Communication heavily emphasises the exchanges between theory and practice, between thinking and doing, and between critiquing digital culture and seeing oneself as an active participant and shaper of that culture.
We’re particularly interested to hear from candidates whose work engages with computational methods, data visualisation, data analytics, and/or data cultures. We’re open to applications from scholars across humanities, social sciences, media and cultural studies, digital humanities, digital rhetoric, design, computer and data science and/or other relevant backgrounds.
