Directors of the Research Schools of:

  • Electrical, Energy, Materials Engineering
  • Aerospace, Mechanical & Environmental Engineering
  • Computer Science

ANU is seeking to appoint three new School Directors who will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) as a hub that will grow and inspire a new generation of creative thinkers, who will challenge historic biases in a truly inclusive environment.

The three new roles represent part of the University’s ambitious Reimagine Project, an interdisciplinary venture with the aim to attract the very best and brightest from around the world to identify, articulate and solve problems. Not just in the traditional spheres for engineers or computer scientists but those with varied backgrounds and areas of expertise, who aspire to innovate and lead new approaches to technologies, intelligence and data and human interface.

The new Directors will provide the vision and leadership to reinforce the distinctive, applied identity of the Schools and will be motivated by a desire to drive excellence in research, education, engagement and impact. With delegated powers for academic and resource management, candidates will demonstrate the intellectual, strategic and operational leadership qualities to engage colleagues and industry partners in shaping and delivering the Reimagine strategy that will enhance the University’s international reputation and network of relationships.

Given the scope of the roles, applications are welcomed from engineering and IT research-led academics, as well as those pioneers with appropriate leadership expertise across business and industry.
