The School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science seeks to appoint a Lecturer (Level B) in Creative Writing to contribute to teaching, research and service in the School.

Creative Writing at Griffith is an active community with a large and vibrant teaching program, an award-winning staff, and a strong research profile as evidenced by our ‘above world standard’ ERA ranking (4).

The successful candidate will be expected to teach and convene courses in Creative Writing; develop undergraduate curriculum; supervise Honours and Higher Research Degree students; undertake and publish high-quality research within the discipline; and make other valuable contributions to the life and culture of the School.

This is a fixed term (until August 2025), full-time position based at either the Gold Coast or Nathan campuses. It is expected that the successful candidate will be available to attend campus in person as a normal requirement of the role. Further, you may be required to work on either a temporary or an indefinite basis at any premises, which the University currently has or may subsequently acquire or at any premises at which it may from time to time provide services.
