Position overview

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) leads intellectual engagement with the Asia-Pacific region through research, teaching and contributions to public debate, and seeks to set the international standard for scholarship concerning the region. 

The Crawford School of Public Policy at The Australian National University is Asia and the Pacific’s preeminent graduate public policy school. The Crawford School is home to some of the region’s most important researchers and many staff are involved with government committees and play key advisory roles across government, business and civil society. Students at the School are valued members of the region’s leading public policy community and contribute to our impact on the world’s most pressing issues including governance and public policy, water, food, energy, economic development, security, and the environment.

Following a successful external review of its activities, the School is embarking on the next phase of its evolution under the directorship of Professor Helen Sullivan. 

We are seeking to appoint a distinguished academic with a background in Public Administration, Public Policy, Public Sector Management or related fields.

The appointment will be at the Professor (E) or Associate Professor (D) level, depending on the attributes and experience of the successful applicant.

The Professor or Associate Professor will be expected to make a major contribution to our newly redesigned Masters offerings of the Crawford School, including the Executive Master of Public Policy and the Master of Public Policy and the Master of Public Administration.

Increasing the representation of women and academics from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds at senior levels is a strategic priority for the Crawford School. We strongly encourage applications from these groups.
