Careers

We are recruiting multiple positions in the new School of Cybernetics.

 

The School of Cybernetics is a brand new organisation in the ANU College of Engineering & Computer Science. It is now the home of 3Ai and will build on our foundational work.

 

As well as housing 3Ai, the School of Cybernetics will build capacity in Systems and Design. The School will be structured in clusters responsible for the education, research and engagement activities in specific focus areas. This is an opportunity to create new ways of working, researching, educating and engaging, to imagine something different, built on a diverse and inclusive culture.

Educational Developer - Professional stream

Location: Canberra

Classification: ANU Officer levels 5, 6/7 (banded) or 8 

Salary package: $71,878 - $106,517 per annum plus 17% Superannuation 

Term:  Full time, Continuing

  • Be part of the launch of a new School of Cybernetics at the Australian National University
  • Support the establishment of innovative, interdisciplinary, outwardly focused programs blending education, research and engagement
  • Collaboratively develop and implement strategies to deliver truly transformational educational experiences

 

There are up to three continuing appointments available, to contribute to collaboratively designing, driving and sustaining a program of strategic activities that will launch the new School of Cybernetics. The School of Cybernetics will include a Strategy area of activity. This brings together business management, engagement and impact, and educational experience functions. In educational experience, our aims are to find new business models and revenue streams, and create new educational experiences, methods and approaches that can flow through into the rest of the educational activities in the College and ANU. This will require a hybrid team of academic and professional staff; while each staff member will be recruited into one of these categories, in practice the work will involve a blend of professional and academic activities, as well as close collaboration with others. To this end, we are interested in recruiting a hybrid team with a range of capabilities and levels.

 

We welcome a diversity of backgrounds, experiences and ideas and encourage applications from individuals who may have had non-academic career paths, who may have taken a career break or who have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia.
