College overview

The Australian National University (ANU) College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics (CECC) is a vibrant and diverse community of more than three thousand students, staff, and visitors. Our College is comprised of three schools: the School of Computing, School of Cybernetics, and School of Engineering, supported by the Professional Services Group.

We are proud to attract great thinkers from industry and other academic disciplines, varied backgrounds and areas of expertise. We believe the responsibility of engineering and computing is to bring to together expertise on people, technological systems, and science to put technology at the service of creating a more sustainable, responsible and safe world.

The School of Engineering brings together a diverse and welcoming community that is motivated to seek “wicked problems”. We connect divergent thinkers, to explore and pose solutions, that cross the traditional interdisciplinary and global boundaries.

Position overview

We are seeking two outstanding academics with research interests in photovoltaic solar energy, one each in silicon photovoltaics and in perovskite photovoltaics, to join the Energy Cluster of the ANU School of Engineering.  Applicants should have a strong record of photovoltaics research, as well as interest and expertise in education and engagement.

We welcome and develop diversity of backgrounds, experiences and ideas and encourage applications from individuals who may have had non-traditional career paths, who may have taken a career break or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia.
