Become a part of a dynamic community transforming science and engineering
through advanced computing
Engage with multi-disciplinary computational scientists solving
computationally demanding problems, at scale.
Inspire the next generation of outstanding students through research,
education and entrepreneurism.
The Australian National University (ANU) College of Engineering and Computer
Science (CECS) is a vibrant and diverse community of more than three
thousand students, staff, and visitors. Our College comprises three schools:
the School of Computing, School of Cybernetics, and School of Engineering,
supported by the Professional Services Group. We aim to bring together
expertise in social, technical, ecological and scientific systems to build a
new approach. In the College, we draw on our disciplinary foundations to find
and solve problems of global importance. Our people build on our traditional
world-class expertise and take it in creative, unconventional directions.
Through the Reimagine investment, we have the privilege and the responsibility
to build a new legacy for the University, the country, and even the world. We
will deliver on our mission by building a strong community, providing
transformative educational experiences, conducting high-impact research,
seeking meaningful engagement, and becoming a resilient organisation post
COVID-19. Join us in shaping a new intellectual agenda to reimagine
engineering, computing, and the use of technology in the world.
The School of Computing has a strong foundation in computing and information
sciences at ANU. We are a transformative centre for research in artificial
intelligence and machine learning, computer systems and software, and
theoretical foundations of computing. We span traditional and modern thinking,
connecting decades of computer science methodologies with modern data and
computational science. Our mission is motivated by the need to design, drive
and sustain strategic activities via five broad focus areas: Computing
Foundations, Computational Science, Intelligent Systems, Data Science and
Analytics, and the Software Innovation Institute. Be part of an innovative and
forward-looking intellectual agenda, built on a diverse, inclusive culture.
This position is a fixed term appointment for a period of 3 years to
contribute to the Computational Science Activity Cluster.
Applications are particularly invited from researchers who undertake high
impact collaborative and cross-disciplinary research, and whose interests and
expertise include teaching and research supervision. Longer term and/or
ongoing appointment may be offered in exceptional cases subject to performance
and budget availability as well the candidate's demonstrated capability and
desire to complement the College's strategic agendas in teaching, research and
broader engagement within the University and community.
