Position overview

The ANU College of Law currently has multiple vacancies and invites applications from forward-thinking academics who are ready to thrive in one of the world’s best law schools. The ANU College of Law is interested in all areas of legal research and legal education.

As an academic in the ANU College of Law you will ensure our students and scholars are not just equipped to respond to the challenges of today, but are ready to capture the opportunities of tomorrow. You will be dedicated to legal education and research at the highest level, and strive towards continuous improvement in the law for the benefit of national and international communities. You will also share the commitment the College places on supporting staff to reach their full potential in an environment of collegiality and respect for diversity.

The ANU College of Law is recognised as one of Australia’s leaders in legal research and education. Located in Australia’s capital city, Canberra, the ANU College of Law is home to a thriving research community including the Centre for International and Public Law (CIPL), the Centre for Law, Arts and the Humanities and a law reform and social justice initiative. It has built strong networks with lawmakers, the judiciary and legal academics throughout Australia and the world.

Start date negotiable but with a preference for early 2022. The College recognises that travel to Australia, even for Australian citizens and permanent residents, is likely to remain challenging for some months to come. Newly appointed staff can commence work remotely if necessary.
