Position overview


The Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) is recognised globally as a leading provider of executive-level education for the public sector. ANZSOG was created by government for government, with the active collaboration of its member universities. It is owned by the 10 Governments across Australia and New Zealand (both national and each state/territory in Australia) and 15 member Universities.

ANZSOG delivers:

  • Post-graduate education incorporating the core disciplines that inform effective public administration.
  • Executive education led by distinguished academics from the world’s leading education providers, respected leaders, and past and present senior officials from ANZSOG’s ten member governments.
  • ‘Safe’ places for high performing senior practitioners to discuss and draw practical learnings from theory, research and case studies, to inform policy debates and service delivery reform.
  • Targeted learning environments for senior practitioners across Australia and New Zealand to learn from one another and build lasting professional networks, benefiting governments, communities and citizens.

The successful applicant will be expected to work collegially with other members of the School of Politics and International Relations, both professional and academic staff, and within the ANU community.  The Academic is expected to make significant, independent and original contributions to ANZSOG’s research program within her/his field of expertise and to the ANZSOG organisational unit at ANU. The person will work collaboratively within the ANZSOG network of scholars and practitioners across the two countries and internationally. The position will also play a vital role in further developing ANZSOG’s research working with Professor John Wanna.  The appointee will have an undergraduate, graduate and executive professional teaching responsibility and assist in the supervision of research students.
