We connect people with knowledge, enabling them to discover and grow.

We are a new world university. Like our namesake Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We’re about what we can give to the world, rather than what we take. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supportive learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. But our vision is about more than educational outcomes—it’s about addressing the real issues in our communities, our region, and beyond. It’s about using our knowledge and passion to shape a brighter future. And it’s having the courage to rise to the challenges of an uncertain and ever-changing world. This is the CDU difference.

The College of Health and Human Sciences at Charles Darwin University is evolving. We are strengthening our portfolio of flourishing programs; with a strong research base and exceptional community links, we are increasing opportunities for students in a range of areas. We are looking for people to join our successful teams - to innovate, to create, to develop and lead our new and exciting programs. Our research focuses on improving the lives of the people in our region, and understanding and making better the societies, economies, health and environments of Northern Australia. This opportunity comes with genuine work life balance, which will allow you the time to explore some of Australia’s best kept secrets that are right here on Darwin’s door step.
