The Univeristy of Tasmania is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Theatre based in Hobart in the School of Creative Arts and Media (CAM) which is part of the College of Arts, Law and Education. This position is a teaching intensive role with an expected 60% teaching allocation in a full time equivalent workload.

The Lecturer in Theatre will join the Theatre and Performance team to deliver the Theatre and Performance major as well as contribute to cross disciplinary Creative Curriculum units in the School of Creative Arts and Media. The Creative Curriculum units provide frameworks for students to build their interdisciplinary expertise through collaboration and work-integrated learning, as well as providing a place-based, collaborative, and responsive environment for new practice.

To be successful, you will be a dynamic academic with knowledge and experience in the delivery of contemporary theatre and performance pedagogies. The Lecturer in Theatre will contribute to academic programs and operations in Hobart and other campuses as required and will have expertise in teaching and curriculum design; delivery of interdisciplinary creative arts units; and experience in blended learning and online teaching.

The Lecturer will also contribute to the strategic research, impact and engagement agendas of the School, College and broader University. A strategic priority for the School of Creative Arts and Media is to increase participation in, and contribution to, cultural activities across the state as well as engage with the artistic and cultural fabric of Tasmania, and the potential for creative arts pedagogy to address social, environmental, and cultural challenges. To support this priority, the Lecturer in Theatre will initiate and develop a network of partnerships with organisations, professional bodies – including the festival industry and theatre sector – and the creative arts and local community, through their research, teaching and community engagement activity.

Through the Southern Transformation Project (Hobart) and the new Hedberg building, the University of Tasmania is making a significant investment in the creative arts, as part of a vision for the University as a site for collaboration between community, industry and the University via creative projects. In 2020 the School of Creative Arts and Media refined and enriched our creative arts program through the 2020 Curriculum Renewal project. The University’s commitment to contemporary arts practice and scholarship continues through the appointment of exceptional creative practitioners and scholars.
