9 December 2020

Expression of Interest

Professor and Deputy Director

ANU Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics, The Australian National University

RE-ADVERTISED

THIS OPPORTUNITY WAS PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED IN LATE 2019.  COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS PREVENTED THE PROCESS FROM BEING COMPLETED .

CGA is seeking Expressions of Interest for the appointment of two key senior positions with complementary expertise. The level of appointment will be either at Full Professor (Level E) or Associate Processor Level D. It is the intention that one of the appointees will initially take on the role of Deputy Director, in the anticipation that they will take over as Director within the next three years.

We are seeking inspirational scientific leaders with equity agendas from any area of research covered by the Centre, who can grow ANU’s leadership across all areas of gravitational wave astronomy. If you think you have the skills, vision and drive required to fill these roles, please consider applying, regardless of your current level of appointment.

The appointments come with attractive start-up packages and the ability to help shape the future of the CGA through subsequent faculty hires. They are tenure or tenure-track positions with a negotiable probation period. The University may also consider placement for a significant other if they fit within the profile of the institution.

We are now seeking 2-page Expressions of Interest (EoI), along with a complete CVs. EoIs will be accepted any time up to mid-February 2021.  We then anticipate advertising the positions with a closing date for applications in mid-March  2021.

The successful appointee to the position of Deputy Director must be available to assist the current Director and the CGA staff in research proposals that may be submitted in 2021/2022, but there is significant flexibility in regard to actual commencement date and physical presence at the ANU.

You are encouraged to contact Professor David McClelland (david.mcclelland@anu.edu.au) for further information. Please email your expression of interest and CV to the CGA Administrator, Dr Sareh Rajabi (sareh.rajabi@anu.edu.au), before the closing date.
