your DIS­TINC­TIVE aca­demic ca­reer

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - SIGN OF THE TIMES - Pro­fes­sor Deep Saini, Vice-Chan­cel­lor and Pres­i­dent, Uni­ver­sity of Can­berra.

Marked by youth­ful dy­namism and de­ter­mi­na­tion, the Uni­ver­sity of Can­berra has treaded a unique jour­ney since its in­cep­tion. With a dual fo­cus on pro­duc­ing pro­fes­sion-ready grad­u­ates and mis­sion-ori­ented, prob­lem-solv­ing re­search, the Uni­ver­sity has risen in merely a quar­ter of a cen­tury to rank among the world’s top 100 uni­ver­si­ties un­der the age of 50 and sits in the top two per cent of uni­ver­si­ties over­all.

Our suc­cess and im­pact have come from the courage to take risks, make con­sid­ered choices, and forego 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, lead­ing the way into un­charted ter­ri­to­ries and stay­ing the course against sig­nif­i­cant head­winds.

We pride our­selves on be­ing a bea­con of eq­uity, di­ver­sity, in­clu­sion and ac­cess. Ground-break­ing dis­cov­er­ies by our re­searchers have spun com­mer­cial, ad­vi­sory and so­cial en­ter­prises. Our 84,000 alumni hold in­flu­en­tial po­si­tions in pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors in 128 coun­tries.

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

Are you one of them? We’re look­ing for ex­cep­tional aca­demics to tell us where they fit in our bold vi­sion for the fu­ture.

Our peo­ple are our most trea­sured as­set. Our suc­cess has been shaped by the in­ge­nu­ity of our peo­ple, who are the pri­mary means through which we will de­liver on our com­mit­ments. Com­mit­ment to de­liv­er­ing ex­cel­lence in our core mis­sions of teach­ing, learn­ing, re­search, schol­ar­ship, in­no­va­tion and pub­lic en­gage­ment.

As we en­ter this pe­riod of growth and trans­for­ma­tion, we are seek­ing aca­demic and pro­fes­sional lead­ers with un­bri­dled po­ten­tial to boldly take the lead in redefin­ing the value and func­tion of our uni­ver­sity of the fu­ture.

If you are a bright, en­er­getic, outof-the-box thinker seek­ing a dis­tinc­tive en­vi­ron­ment in which to flour­ish, we want to hear from you. The Uni­ver­sity of Can­berra is where you come to build an en­dur­ing and adap­tive ca­reer in an in­clu­sive en­vi­ron­ment, to breathe oxy­gen into your creative pas­sions and to un­leash your in­ge­nu­ity to solve real-world prob­lems.

We’re build­ing a com­mu­nity of schol­ars, learn­ers and en­ablers, im­pas­sioned about con­struct­ing a bet­ter world.

If you are a bright, en­er­getic out-of-the-box thinker seek­ing a dis­tinc­tive en­vi­ro­ment in which to flour­ish, we want to hear from you
