The Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra has advertised for heads of three Research Schools: Electrical, Energy, Materials Engineering; Aerospace, Mechanical & Environmental Engineering; and Computer Science.
"ANU is seeking to appoint three new School Directors who will play a
pivotal role in shaping the future of the College of Engineering and
Computer Science (CECS) as a hub that will grow and inspire a new
generation of creative thinkers, who will challenge historic biases in a
truly inclusive environment.
The three new roles represent part of the University’s ambitious
Reimagine Project, an interdisciplinary venture with the aim to attract
the very best and brightest from around the world to identify,
articulate and solve problems. Not just in the traditional spheres for
engineers or computer scientists but those with varied backgrounds and
areas of expertise, who aspire to innovate and lead new approaches to
technologies, intelligence and data and human interface.
The new Directors will provide the vision and leadership to reinforce
the distinctive, applied identity of the Schools and will be motivated
by a desire to drive excellence in research, education, engagement and
impact. With delegated powers for academic and resource management,
candidates will demonstrate the intellectual, strategic and operational
leadership qualities to engage colleagues and industry partners in
shaping and delivering the Reimagine strategy that will enhance the
University’s international reputation and network of relationships.
Given the scope of the roles, applications are welcomed from
engineering and IT research-led academics, as well as those pioneers
with appropriate leadership expertise across business and industry."
