Lecturer in Indonesian Studies

About the opportunity 

Applications are invited for a full-time lectureship in the Department of Indonesian Studies in the School of Languages and Cultures. The Indonesian Studies department offers an area studies major, incorporating sociocultural content into language acquisition at beginners through to advanced levels. While ensuring that language acquisition takes precedence in the lower levels, students are expected to grapple with important questions about the history, anthropology and politics of this vast and complex nation from the ab initio level onwards. This is facilitated at the lower levels through a mixed Indonesian and English language lecture component and at the upper levels through our flagship Indonesian language guest lecture program, in which students come together ten times per semester to attend lectures on topics related to their studies delivered in Indonesian by outside experts.

The successful candidate will make a key contribution to the teaching of Indonesian Studies at all levels. In collaboration with other staff, they will also be involved in curriculum development and the promotion of Indonesian Studies across the University and in the broader community. Some teaching in the Asian Studies program (in English) and Honours and Postgraduate supervision may be required. The successful candidate will be expected to make high-quality contribution to the research profile of the department.
