Es­tab­lished less than 30 years ago, Univer­sity of Can­berra is ranked in the top two per cent of uni­ver­si­ties world­wide. Here, vicechan­cel­lor and pres­i­dent Pro­fes­sor Deep Saini in­vites ex­cep­tional peo­ple to be part of its next chap­ter.

Qantas - - YES, CHEF! -

Marked by dy­namism and de­ter­mi­na­tion, Univer­sity of Can­berra has been on a unique jour­ney since its in­cep­tion. With a fo­cus on pro­duc­ing both pro­fes­sion-ready grad­u­ates and prob­lem-solv­ing re­search, the univer­sity has risen to rank among the world’s top 100 uni­ver­si­ties un­der the age of 50 and sits in the top two per cent of uni­ver­si­ties glob­ally.

Our suc­cess has come from the courage to take risks, make con­sid­ered choices and forgo the temp­ta­tion to fol­low the pre­vail­ing stan­dards and at­ti­tudes of our con­tem­po­raries. Through­out our his­tory, we have chal­lenged or­tho­doxy and boldly traced our own dis­tinc­tive path.

We pride our­selves on be­ing a bea­con of equity, di­ver­sity, in­clu­sion and ac­cess. Ground­break­ing dis­cov­er­ies by our re­searchers have driven com­mer­cial, ad­vi­sory and so­cial en­ter­prises. Among our 84,000 alumni, we boast in­flu­encers in pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors in 128 coun­tries.

It is from this bedrock that Univer­sity of Can­berra is launch­ing the next phase of its jour­ney as a leader in prag­matic learn­ing and im­pact­ful re­search. The com­ing decade will see the univer­sity grow and evolve into a con­flu­ence of schol­ars, learn­ers, in­no­va­tors, prac­ti­tion­ers and en­ablers.

As we en­ter this pe­riod of growth, we are seek­ing aca­demic and pro­fes­sional lead­ers with un­bri­dled po­ten­tial to help re­de­fine the value and func­tion of our univer­sity of the fu­ture.

Our cam­pus, which is un­der­go­ing a sig­nif­i­cant trans­for­ma­tion in prepa­ra­tion for how stu­dents will learn in the fu­ture, serves as an in­ter­ac­tive and con­nected hub from which our pres­ence ex­tends to all corners of the globe. Our lo­ca­tion is piv­otal to our close re­la­tions with the diplo­matic com­mu­nity and a cat­a­lyst for our world­wide en­gage­ment.

If you are a bright, en­er­getic, out-ofthe-box thinker seek­ing a dis­tinc­tive en­vi­ron­ment in which to flour­ish, we want to hear from you. Univer­sity of Can­berra is where you come to build an en­dur­ing and adap­tive ca­reer in an in­clu­sive en­vi­ron­ment; to un­leash your in­ge­nu­ity to solve real-world prob­lems. To­gether, we’re build­ing a com­mu­nity im­pas­sioned about con­struct­ing a bet­ter world.

“We pride our­selves on be­ing a bea­con of equity, di­ver­sity, in­clu­sion and ac­cess.”
