As a research academic you will deliver outstanding research and scholarship in Applied Economics, specifically in the areas of Macroeconomics, Public Economics, Development Economics, Energy Economics and/or Health Economics.

Strong research infrastructure is at your disposal to allow you to leverage your creativity and expertise to deliver world class research. These facilities include:

• The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre
• The Trading Room
• The Curtin Hub for Immersive Visualisation and eResearch (HIVE)
• Cisco, Internet of Everything (Cisco IoE)

International partnerships and significant collaborations enrich the School’s research, while its industry links provide excellent opportunities for external engagement. Within Curtin there are numerous opportunities to collaborate with researchers in the following areas:

• Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre
• Curtin Graduate School of Business
• Curtin’s new Medical School
• Curtin Institute for Computation
• Curtin’s Centre for Hydrocarbon Production and Optimisation

You will hold a doctoral qualification in Economics (and/or related disciplines) and have an international reputation as an accomplished scholar, combining an outstanding record of publications and citations with demonstrated success in securing research income through competitive grants and/or fellowships. Demonstrated experience in supervising postgraduate research students, mentoring staff and promoting interdisciplinary collaboration are essential.
