Position overview

The Australian National University (ANU) has an international reputation as a leading university in research, education, and policy expertise. Distinguished by its relentless pursuit of excellence, the ANU attracts leading academics and outstanding students from Australia and around the world.

The Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs forms part of the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific and is dedicated to research, education, and policy engagement relating to both international and Asia Pacific politics, security, diplomacy, and strategic affairs. The School is constituted by five departments: the Department of International Relations; the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy; the Department of Pacific Affairs; the Department of Political and Social Change; and the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.

The Department of International Relations, the first of its kind in Australia, is a world-leading centre of the study of the challenges, opportunities, and processes that shape global and Asia-Pacific affairs. Since our foundation in 1949, we have approached the challenge of thinking about global and regional affairs with a combination of academic rigour and ethical awareness. Today, the Department follows in the footsteps of the discipline-leading men and women who have worked here in the past and upon whose inheritance we continue to build. The Department’s vision is to provide ethically motivated research across theory and practice.

The Professor or Associate Professor will hold an important position within the Department and the School, making a major contribution to the teaching and research program.

The appointment will be at Academic Level D (Associate Professor) and/or Level E (Professor), depending on the attributes and experience of the successful applicant(s). The Department is seeking to make a number of hires as part of this hiring round.
