Associate Professor – International Relations

The Australian National University - Department of International Relations

The Australian National University (ANU) is one of the world’s foremost research universities. Distinguished by its relentless pursuit of excellence, the University attracts leading academics and outstanding students from Australia and around the world.

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 Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs forms part of the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific and is dedicated to advancing analysis and understanding of the international, political, societal, and strategic affairs of Asia and the Pacific. The School is constituted by five academic operational areas: Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy; International Relations; Political and Social Change; State, Society and Governance in Melanesia; and Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.

The Department of International Relations, the first of its kind in Australia, is a world-leading centre of the study of the challenges, opportunities, and processes that shape global and Asia-Pacific affairs. Since our foundation in 1949, we have approached the challenge of thinking about global and regional affairs with a combination of academic rigour and ethical awareness. Today, the Department follows in the footsteps of the discipline-leading men and women who have worked here in the past and upon whose inheritance we continue to build. The Department’s vision is to provide ethically motivated research across theory and practice.

The Department of International Relations is seeking to make one continuing academic appointment at the level of Associate Professor.

We welcome applications from any area of the discipline, but particularly from the sub-fields of International Relations Theory, International Political Economy, Asia-Pacific Security and Peace and Conflict Studies.

The Senior Fellow / Associate Professor will play a major role in all departmental activities, including in actively obtaining external research funding, the planning and execution of research projects, and the delivery of high-quality publications that advance the state of knowledge within the broad field of International Relations.

The Associate Professor will teach into both graduate and undergraduate programs. The Associate Professor’s research profile provides for sustained engagement and outreach with government and the public. The position also undertakes departmental administrative tasks as required.
