We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin, we think differently.

We value diversity and our culture of belonging to make deep and abiding connections with our staff, students, First Nations peoples and the wider community. We will be Australia's most connected university with our people at the heart of all we do. Because we believe you make CDU. That is the CDU difference.

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 programs. We are looking for people to join our successful teams. This role will both challenge and reward, offer flexibility and career development. It 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 doorstep.
