CHL is a community of researchers dedicated to investigating and learning with and about the peoples, languages, and lands of Asia and the Pacific. We are proud that the study, teaching, and valuing of Asian and Pacific Studies at the School is unrivalled in Australia. Excellence in Pacific Studies that prioritises and values Indigenous Pacific Islander perspectives, approaches and issues is a core value of our scholarly enterprise, and reflects the ANU’s commitment to justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.

To this end we welcome applications from scholars identifying as Indigenous Pacific, Pasifika, Pacific Islander, Māori or South Sea Islander.

The Pacific Lecturer will collaborate with Pacific Studies and other colleagues undertaking work in all three areas of academic activity – research, education and service (including outreach). The allocation of time to each area will be discussed with the position supervisor annually and be reflective of the appointee’s research agenda, school and interdisciplinary teaching requirements and leadership opportunities within the School environment. The Lecturer may also be required to supervise or mentor less senior staff, and undertake leadership roles as applicable. The staff member will contribute cooperatively to the overall intellectual life of the School, College and University.

The Lecturer will be expected to work collegially, leading by example to develop and maintain effective, productive, equitable and beneficial workplace relationships within all academic and professional School and College staff, students and honorary appointees, as well as with industry stakeholders. This position will also have a mentoring role for students at all levels and will engage in collegial and productive collaborations with local, national and where possible, international colleagues.
