Fellow/ Associate Professor College Of Engineering And Computer Science

The Research School of Engineering at The Australian National University (ANU) is one of the premier engineering research institutions in the country and seeks to be one of the top Engineering schools in the world in its Engineering Education programs and the areas of its research strengths.

The School is seeking applications from ambitious researchers in the fields of Systems and Control, Signal Processing and Robotics who share the high value the School places on allowing individuals to reach their true potential in an environment of collegiality, and respect for diversity.

The selection committee will review and assess all applications and will recommend appointment of the successful applicant at either Academic Level C or D, whichever is more commensurate with their experience and qualification. These levels are intermediate levels, but requiring considerable experience beyond completion of a PhD; applications from fresh PhDs will not be considered on this occasion.

Appointment at Academic Level C is expected to be made in line with the College’s Ongoing Position Program (OPP). The OPP will mirror a tenure-track position, initially with a fixed term appointment, normally of 5 years, with the possibility of conversion to an ongoing appointment following excellent performance.

Appointment at Academic Level D is expected to be ongoing. Appointment at the higher level will require substantial research experience and an outstanding performance record and trajectory in the research area.

Qualifications


FELLOW – ANU ACADEMIC LEVEL C:
1. A PhD in signal processing, robotics, systems and control or a related area, with a strong track record of independent research in the field as evidenced by cited publications in leading relevant peer-reviewed journals and conferences, a record of developing and maintaining collaborations and by other measures such as awards, invitations to give talks at leading conferences etc.
2. An expectation of being awarded IEEE Fellow status. Separately, a potential for election to a learned academy at a future date is highly desirable.
3. A track record of articulating and prosecuting innovative research in the field of electrical engineering and a subfield of signal processing, robotics, or systems and control, and a vision for the activities they will undertake at the ANU in the context of existing activities at ANU
4. A record of winning bids for competitive external funding to support individual and collaborative research activities.
5. Evidence of effective teaching at all levels and of the ability to contribute to setting the education agenda of the School in the area of electrical engineering
6. A track record of successfully supervising and graduating high quality PhD/Masters research students
7. A demonstrated ability to communicate and interact effectively with a variety of staff and students in a cross-disciplinary academic environment (perhaps evidenced by differentiated experience in a variety of institutions) and to foster respectful and productive working relationships with staff, students and colleagues at all levels, backed by excellent oral and written English language skills.
8. A demonstrated high-level understanding of equal opportunity principles and a commitment to the application of these policies in a University context.
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR – ANU ACADEMIC LEVEL D:
1. A PhD in signal processing, robotics, systems and control or a related area, with a strong track record of independent research in the field of as evidenced by highly cited publications in leading relevant peer-reviewed journals and conferences, a record of developing and maintaining collaborations with world leading researchers and institutes and possibly by other measures such as prestigious awards, invitations to give keynote addresses at leading conferences, elite membership of professional institutes etc.
2. An expectation of being awarded IEEE Fellow status. Separately, a potential for election to a learned academy at a future date is highly desirable.
3. A strong track record of articulating and prosecuting innovative research in the field of electrical engineering and a subfield of signal processing, robotics, or systems and control, and a compelling vision for the activities they will undertake at the ANU.
4. A strong record of leading and winning bids for competitive external funding to support individual and collaborative research activities, and the ability to identify similar opportunities for others to pursue and to provide mentoring in the process.
5. Evidence of effective teaching at all levels and of the ability to contribute significantly to setting the education agenda of the School in the area of electrical engineering.
6. A track record of successfully supervising and graduating high quality PhD/Masters research students as evidenced by, for example, the subsequent positions held by these students.
7. Ability to provide academic leadership and to mentor and develop colleagues to achieve goals.
8. A demonstrated ability to communicate and interact effectively with a variety of staff and students in a cross-disciplinary academic environment (perhaps evidenced by differentiated experience in a variety of institutions) and to foster respectful and productive working relationships with staff, students and colleagues at all levels, backed by excellent oral and written English language skills.
9. A demonstrated high-level understanding of equal opportunity principles and a commitment to the application of these policies in a University context.
