Expression of Interest



ANU Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics


The Australian National University Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics (CGA) encompasses all aspects of gravitational wave physics and astrophysics, including instrumentation, theory and data analysis, source follow-up and multi-messenger astronomy. It brings together ANU researchers in these areas under one umbrella. The CGA is looking to expand its capability by making multiple tenure-track academic appointments across these research programs over the next year.

We are currently seeking Expressions of Interest for the appointment of a key senior position in the area of gravitational wave instrumentation at Level E, Full Professor.

We are seeking an inspirational scientific leader with an equity agenda, who can grow ANU’s leadership across gravitational wave detector instrumentation. If you think you have the skills, vision and drive required to fill this role, please consider applying.

The appointment comes with an attractive start-up package and the ability to help shape the future of the CGA through subsequent faculty hires. This is a tenure-track position with a negotiable probation period. The University may also consider placement for a significant other if they fit within the profile of the institution. There may be additional incentives available to an appointee from a diverse or underrepresented background.

We are now seeking a 2-page Expression of Interest (EoI), along with a complete CV. EoIs will be accepted any time up to the end of Feb 2022.  We then anticipate advertising the position with a closing date for applications in March/April 2022. 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.
