Register as a Casual Academic
Thank you for your interest in working with Charles Sturt University as a casual/sessional academic.
Charles Sturt employs casual/sessional academics each year to assist us in providing quality learning experiences and outcomes for our students. As a University that has embraced on-line learning, our workforce is increasingly required to work with a range of technology tools for example, paperless marking and online meeting and collaboration spaces. This is particularly important because our campuses and students are located across Australia and internationally.
In most cases casual academic staff are employed to undertake lectures, tutorials and marking. If you are passionate about helping students to achieve, are qualified at AQF Level 8 or above, comfortable working with a range of tools and prepared to work ad-hoc hours then we would encourage you to register your interest. You only need to register once, even if you are interested in working across multiple schools or disciplines.
If you are experiencing difficulties submitting your application via our online system please contact the Division of People and Culture for assistance.
