About the role:

This is an academic position with a teaching specialist classification within Melbourne Law School (MLS) at the University of Melbourne. MLS is developing an elearning strategy that forms part of a broader Digital Strategy and that will involve the increased use of technology to enhance the teaching and learning experience across the School's teaching programs. The strategy includes developing blended learning approaches in the Juris Doctor (JD) and breadth (undergraduate) programs, and wholly online subjects and courses in the Masters program.

The appointee will be expected to contribute substantively to the implementation of MLS's elearning strategy across the JD, breadth and masters programs. This aspect of the role may include providing support and advice to other colleagues and the MLS leadership team with respect to elearning and its implementation.

The appointee will join a group of academics who have a wide range of teaching and research roles and interests in the field of competition and consumer law at MLS and will have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to the various research and engagement related activities of this group, as well as of the broader Faculty.

About you:

You will have a PhD in law, you should have advanced knowledge in the field of competition law with a strong international and comparative competition law orientation, and demonstrated leadership in the design and development of academic programs and in particular in online teaching programs.

You will have demonstrated academic excellence evidenced by an outstanding contribution to teaching and in particular online teaching, with a high level of proficiency in the use of information technology and in particular software used in higher education online teaching.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills and a demonstrated ability to play a leadership role as well work as a member of a team, with people from diverse backgrounds and at all levels of seniority, including with external stakeholders.
