Position overview

ANU has an international reputation for research and education relevant to the health and well-being of the population of Australia, as well as that of the developing world. This is achieved through discovery research, applied research in health service settings, research-led teaching in health and medical sciences, and the translation of research findings into practice and policy. The ANU College of Health and Medicine comprises the Research School of Psychology, the ANU Medical School, the John Curtin School of Medical Research and the Research School of Population Health. These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels.  

The Community Engagement Coordinator will undertake consultation and engagement with Indigenous communities to support the research activities of the National Centre for Indigenous Genomics (NCIG).  NCIG consults deeply and continuously with Indigenous Australians to deliver a world-standard, Indigenous-led model for Indigenous genomic research.  Broadly, NCIG is involved in two streams of research:

  1. creation of an Australian 'reference genome' which will provide ongoing underlying data for a wide range of medical research;
  2. identifying the views of Indigenous Australians on best practice for governance of genomic data (collection, management, storage and use).
