Lead one of Australia’s great universities

If you are an exceptional leader—able to connect, empower and inspire—this is a rare opportunity.

You will step into a proud 146-year history of progressive societal impact. Shape a thriving culture of academic and research excellence. And lead a diverse and passionate community, with a clear plan to do even more—for our students, our country, our planet. All while enjoying an enviable quality of life in the heart of one of the world’s most liveable cities.

Working closely with our Chancellor, University Council and highly talented and experienced executive team, you will shape and support every aspect of the University’s strategic development.

You will empower our entire community, and inspire us all to keep reaching higher. You will bring people together; seek and celebrate diversity; and exemplify our values: integrity, respect, collegiality, excellence and discovery.

You will move comfortably in all circles, establishing and maintaining relationships for mutual and societal gain. Uncertainty will not faze you. And you'll be absolutely committed to continually enhancing our already world-class education and research as we approach our 150th year.
