Position overview


The Research School of Engineering is one of two Research Schools within the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS). This is an exciting time to join our School and be part of a community that prides itself on solving “wicked problems” in collaboration with the best minds in the world from across a broad range of disciplines. We take pride in pursuing our fundamental mission – discovery and making knowledge matter – to the very highest quality.


We are seeking applications from enthusiastic early to mid-career academics who have the potential and deep commitment to help define the future of their discipline. You will have the opportunity to present a ground-breaking vision for your research and education, and their importance to the future of engineering. Applications are particularly invited from researchers whose interests are in the broad areas of Electrical Engineering and Materials Engineering, whose breadth of vision reaches across traditional discipline silos, includes strong links with external organisations and industry, and is synergistic with the existing research groups within the School.


We welcome and develop diversity of backgrounds, experiences and ideas and encourage applications from individuals who may have had non-traditional career paths, who may have taken a career break or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia.


There are currently a number of positions available at Academic Levels B, C and D which are ongoing (tenured) or tenure track depending on the skills and experience of the successful candidates. Successful candidates will be offered individualised attention and be part of a culture with a strong sense of community to define their own research agendas, apply for competitive funding, develop their own laboratory facilities and where appropriate, build a research team. These positions come with a yearly budget to cover visitors and conference travel as well as significant start-ups funds for the very best applicants.


The Australian National University provides attractive benefits and excellent support to maintain a healthy work/life balance and offers generous remuneration benefits, including four weeks paid vacation per year plus additional leave for the Christmas close down period, assistance with relocation expenses and 17% employer contribution to superannuation. Generous parental leave, the possibility of flexible and part time working arrangements, a parental and aged care support program, dual career hire programs, ANU school holiday programs, and childcare facilities on campus are also available.
