Position overview

The ANU College of Asia and the Pacific (CAP) leads intellectual engagement with the Asia-Pacific region through research, teaching and contributions to public debate, and seeks to set the international standard for scholarship concerning the region. 

The Crawford School of Public Policy is Australia’s premier public policy school, with recognised world-class expertise and experience in resource and environmental management and development, and on key Asia-Pacific countries.

The Crawford School of Public Policy is seeking an outstanding early-career academic to contribute to the Institute for Infrastructure in Society (I2S). The Institute aims to deliver social value through providing research evidence to reduce socio-environmental risks, improve community experiences of major infrastructure project delivery, inform best practice industry-government-community engagement and improve policies that govern social impact management. The Institute works in direct partnership with industry, government, civil society and communities. It is committed to highly engaged research that values the close, effective and meaningful working-together of academics and non-academics to generate new knowledge and related products, services, policies or practices throughout the infrastructure sector.

As the Research Fellow, you will work primarily in the Next Generation Engagement Program- the Institute’s flagship research program and Australia's largest study into community engagement in infrastructure. You will focus primarily on the growth, development and use of the Program’s ‘Infrastructure Engagement Excellence Standards’, a world-first series of research-derived standards establishing the qualities of best practice community engagement for major projects. Later year work will involve assessment of live infrastructure projects against the Standard. You will work directly and collaboratively with industry and government to contribute to ongoing research projects, develop new projects with the team and independently, and support the Institute’s ongoing success. You will also be supported to develop your individual research agenda alongside this primary focus.

You will be welcomed as an active member of a community of world-class scholars, delivering high-quality research and service/administrative support within the Crawford School, to advance the research and policy impact priorities for the School, College and the ANU. I2S offers a highly collaborative, creative and empowering culture committed to delivering the highest quality research to contribute to society while supporting team members to achieve their individual potential.

This opportunity is available as a full or part-time (min. 21 hours per week), negotiable, fixed term appointment for four years (2021-2025).
