*Our Organisation*

RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise.  Our
mission is to help shape the world through research, innovation, teaching
and engagement, and to create transformative experiences for our students,
getting them ready for life and work.

The School of Media and Communication aims to produce graduates who will
respond creatively to the challenges of a rapidly changing international,
media-driven environment. Media and Communication has strong links with
industry, and responds to ongoing change brought about by technology and
convergence. The School is positioned as a major contributor and leader of
the debate within media driven industries.

*The Role and Responsibilities*

An outstanding opportunity exists at RMIT to build your career, working
with leading cultural and social researchers, and become a key member of
the research team for the Future Fellowship project ‘Early Start Arts to
Counter Radicalisation’. Led by Chief Investigator Professor Anna
Hickey-Moody, the project builds on existing research strengths at RMIT in
socially engaged arts practice, cultural studies, and sensory, digital and
visual methodologies. The project aims to:

1) Develop the first Australian and British series of early start arts
programs for counter radicalisation.

2 Catalogue and understand if and how non-verbal, aesthetic and culturally
coded forms of information change how interfaith children relate to each

3) Create and publicly display art works that will develop new and positive
‘faces’ (Noble 2012: 220) of Muslim children in Australian and English
popular culture.

4) Map the distribution and impact of the public artwork.

The project is a community and early childhood approach to building
interfaith community with a view to strengthening social cohesion.  To be
considered for this position  applicants will need experience in one or
more of the methods employed: socially engaged arts practice with children
aged 3-10, adult focus groups, large scale postal surveys and street
surveys, public art, big data mapping. Experience with NViVO is highly
desirable. The Fellow will also assist in sourcing additional specialist
methodological expertise as needed.  Across the life of the project, the
Fellow will undertake empirical fieldwork and site maintenance in
Melbourne, building and maintaining strong relationships with the
institutions and communities involved in the project.

The Fellow will also maintain data sets, assist with project management and
collaborate on publications arising from the project. Within a year of
appointment, the Fellow will be invited to lead some project outputs.
