College overview

The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) is dedicated to contributing to The Australian National University’s reputation for excellence in research and research-led education, bringing together expertise across a range of areas to reimagine the role of engineering and computing for future generations. CECS is a diverse and vibrant community dedicated to discovery and to making knowledge matter. Our academics and students are engaged in ground-breaking, cutting-edge research, in exciting areas such as renewable energy, robotics, telecommunications, biomaterials, human-machine interaction, and artificial intelligence.

Position Overview

The Research School of Computer Science is one of two founding units within the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS). Two new schools have recently been announced: Aeronautical, Mechanical and Environmental Engineering, and Design Engineering.

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 seek applicants who have the potential and deep commitment to help define the future of their discipline. You will have the opportunity to present a vision for your research and education, and their importance to the future of computer science. Applications are particularly invited from researchers in computer science whose interests align with or complement existing strengths of the School, whose breadth of vision reaches across traditional discipline silos, and whose record includes strong links with external organisations and industry (where appropriate).

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 several 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, build a research team, and develop their own laboratory facilities where appropriate. These positions come with a yearly budget to cover visitors and conference travel as well as significant start-ups funds to attract the very best applicants.

To enquire about these positions please contact the Chair of the Search Committee, Professor Bob Williamson, via email to bob.williamson@anu.edu.au
