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.

Crawford School of Public Policy is one of four Schools within CAP and one of the world’s leading public policy schools. Crawford School is the University's focal point for contributing to public policy research, education and policy impact. Its graduate programs have trained many of the region’s leaders, and its research has impacted on policy making. Public policy scholarship at Crawford School is characterized by high quality, policy-relevant research across a range of disciplines.

The Policy and Governance program (POGO) at Crawford School conducts research on pressing policy, institutional and development challenges in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. Program faculty come from diverse disciplinary backgrounds and employ in their research a rich variety of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches. There is a strong connection between research and teaching in the program. POGO offers a new Executive Masters of Public Policy, a redesigned and relaunched Masters of Public Policy with multiple specialisations and a soon-to-be refreshed Masters of Public Administration.

We are seeking to appoint up to two outstanding early to mid-career academics with a background and expertise in Public Administration, Public Sector Management, or Policy Studies. The appointments will be at the Lecturer (B) or Senior Lecturer (C) level, depending on the attributes and experience of the successful applicant. The Lecturer/Senior Lecturer will teach courses across the MPP and MPA, contribute to curriculum renewal and teach into other Crawford and ANU teaching programs. In addition to teaching in the group’s graduate teaching program, the appointees will also contribute to research supervision, undertake collaborative and independent research leading to high quality publications, contribute to the School’s public and policy engagement activities, and seek external research funding.

Increasing the representation of women and academics from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds is a strategic priority for Crawford School. We strongly encourage applications from these groups.
