Position overview

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) leads intellectual engagement with the Asia-Pacific region through research, teaching and contributions to public debate, and seeks to set the international standard for scholarship concerning the region. 

The Crawford School of Public Policy is Australia’s premier public policy school, with recognised world-class expertise and experience in economics, political science, environmental management and development, and on key Asia-Pacific countries.

The Development Policy Centre (Devpolicy) is a research centre within the Crawford School. The Centre conducts research and promotes discussion in three areas: Australian aid effectiveness, the Pacific and Papua New Guinea, and global development policy.

The Fellow or Senior Policy Fellow will engage with other consortium members, participating in the management and governance of the PRP as well as make vigorous contributions to current policy thinking, analysis and debate in Devpolicy’s fields of research, including on economic development and labour mobility in the Pacific and PNG.
