About RMIT

RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise in which teaching, research and engagement are central to achieving positive impact and creating life-changing experiences for our students and staff.

We know that sometimes timing doesn't align for the perfect role to be available when you need it - but that's okay. That is why we would encourage you to stay connected with us. We would be very open to receiving your expression of interest (via a cover letter demonstrating the discipline you are passionate about) and resume.

To address the under representation of women in STEMM, we are seeking expressions of interest from women in STEMM for the Schools of Science and Engineering, including but not limited to:-

  • Software Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Physics
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Engineering

The Section 12 of the Victorian Equal Opportunity Act permits the University to conduct female only recruitment in addressing the substantive imbalance of female representation in Science, Engineering and Business, IT and Logistics schools.

Further details relating to the School/College Office may be found on at: www.rmit.edu.au/seh
