Senior Executive Positions

This is a unique opportunity for unstoppable leaders to join the University of South Australia, one of the world’s top young universities# - ranked No. 1 in Australia for quality education* and No. 1 in Australia for research engagement and impact^.

At UniSA, we educate global professionals ready to create and inspire change, and we deliver research that is informed by end users, as well as inspired by global challenges and opportunities, to deliver economic and social prosperity.

UniSA is embarking on an ambitious plan, Enterprise25, to place People, Programs and Precincts at the heart of our operations. This will position UniSA as the go-to university for people who want successful global careers, as well as for industry and the professions that want to collaborate with our researchers to drive and create their own futures.

As part of this transformation, we are creating seven new Academic Units to support our Enterprise25 strategy, and enable a greater focus on the quality of our teaching, research and student experience.

We are now seeking inspirational academic and professional executive leaders to fill a range of roles in our new Academic Units. Each role offers a unique opportunity to shape the strategic direction of the university in line with Enterprise25.

We’re looking for those with the right knowledge, with creativity and a can-do attitude, who know how to communicate and collaborate. We value people who are inspired by new challenges, who ask questions and propose solutions, who are authentic, engaged and committed to our goals as a university.

At UniSA, you’ll enjoy a dynamic and agile culture, which thrives on breaking new ground.

All roles are based in Adelaide, South Australia, one of Australia’s most liveable cities.
