Important notes

  • It is expected that the majority of applicants will receive an outcome within the timeframe listed in the 'Outcome notification' section of the table above. In some cases, because these positions are dependent on student enrolments, applicants may not receive a final notification until the teaching start date for the teaching period. Applicants who are enrolled as PhD or Masters students must have been confirmed in their candidature and not be past 3.5 years (PhD) and 1.5 years (MA) full-time equivalency. Currently enrolled Research Higher Degrees (RHD) students at the University of Melbourne applying to become a tutor must have the support of their supervisor
  • In most cases, it is essential to have a minimum of an honours degree in a relevant discipline (Please note: that if you are applying for a casual academic staff role in the Asia Institute or the School of Languages and Linguistics this criterion may not apply. Please contact the Program Convenor for clarification)
  • Late applications will not be accepted unless an exceptional circumstance arises based on a school's requirements. All casual academic staff selected need to have applied formally
