Job Description

Make the most of your PhD in Communication Design, Graphics or Interaction/UX Design

Permanent, full time research-active lecturing role at NZ’s 2nd largest and fastest growing university

Based at AUT’s City and South Campuses

AUT’s School of Art & Design is a very highly regarded and rated centre of academic excellence for art and design, education, and research. We are seeking a Lecturer in Communication Design to join us as a new and emerging academic for 2019 through the Maori and Pacific Early Career Academic Programme.

Our staff work in collaborative teaching teams and the ethos of the school is welcoming, encouraging, and focused on helping staff develop their careers effectively and within their areas of professional interest and aptitude. The School does extremely well in Māori and Pacific student retention and completion rates, but there is less equitable diversity in the current academic staff profile. We would like this to change, so we are seeking an appointment for a great design studio lecturer who also is able to bring their perspective to a School increasingly engaged with collective indigenous approaches to design and research.

We are interested in a range of sub-disciplinary design practices that fall under the broad coverage of the Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) degree programme. This programme has streams in the City and South campuses, and specialisations currently include Interaction/UX Design, Graphic Design, Photography and Illustration. Other areas of specialisation across the School’s programmes include Digital Design and/or Design Thinking. For these positions, we need someone with advanced studio teaching pedagogy expertise and ideally with national or international industry experience.

What will the role involve?

  • Planning, implementation and evaluation of studio learning environments for Communication Design.
  • Scholarly teaching, co-teaching and supervision; employing disciplinary methods to integrate the processes of teaching and learning
  • Undertaking research that works within the Faculty and/or School’s research directions
  • Supervision of postgraduate students and their research

There is a reduced teaching load for the first year of appointment to allow for growing into the exiting pedagogy and for allocating time to research and mentor selection.

What kind of person are we looking for?

  • Completed PhD in Communication Design/Graphics/Interaction/UX Design fields (or submission for examination prior to 22 February 2019)
  • Research Interests – Communication/Graphic/Interaction Design and/or learning and teaching
  • Teaching Interests in studio pedagogy and other teaching (open to expertise)

Additional important eligibility criteria for all appointments to the Maori and Pacific Early Career Academic Programme: 

  • This must be your first full-time, permanent academic teaching position in either a university or other tertiary education provider. You will also have no more than 5 years fixed-term contract academic teaching experience (in total) in a university or other tertiary education provider.
  • You must have a completed PhD within 3 years of application to this programme, or will have submitted your completed thesis for examination by 22 February 2019
  • Programme is open to applicants of Māori or Pacific genealogical descent
  • You must be able to start before 25 February 2019.

AUT has fantastic staff benefits including free study, a personal fund for your continued professional development, free membership to AUT gyms and generous leave allowances.
