Challenging role in a ground-breaking start-up institute for ANU
Research activities at the highest international level in a highly diverse and collaborative environment 
Opportunity to leverage Australian National University"s role as national university and establishing links into government policy 
College overview
The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science is embarking on a 15-year project to reimagine a new type of engineering and computing, one that is custom built and fit for the middle of the 21st century. Known as the Reimagine Project, this initiative aims to get us thinking about what our world will be like in 2050, when we are completely embedded in both a digital and physical environment, and to encourage us to take charge and shape a new intellectual agenda.  Our lived experience is increasingly one of large-scale systems of people, whose actions and interactions are influenced by our digital, physical and biological environment. We and our technology are highly interconnected and yet highly diverse.  Somebody, somewhere designed, built, operates and uses almost everything.
Cyber Institute Overview
The Cyber Institute is a strategic interdisciplinary initiative in the Australian National University’s the College of Engineering and Computer Science in partnership with the National Security College. 
Our goal at the Cyber Institute is to understand and shape the future of cyber.  That means:
being a trusted adviser to government, industry and the community;
building capability and breaking new ground in the collaborative development of cyber professionals and delivery of expertise and education;
forging new, mutually beneficial partnerships with national and international research organization’s, industry and government agencies;
undertaking leading-edge, interdisciplinary research and translate that research directly into operations and policy; and,
building the repository of intellectual leadership in the field.
We are establishing a very different program in Cyber Mastery, grounded in both conceptual thinking and in operations, to build the cyber leaders and professionals of the 21st century for government, industry and academia.  Our research aims to lean into what cyber, and the consequences of cyber, may look like in 15 to 20 years’ time.  Both education and research will leverage the Australian National University’s breadth of expertise as well as its operational capability and technical depth.
Position overview
The Cyber Institute is seeking academics and practitioners who are able to contribute to the mission of the Institute. These roles have a rare opportunity to shape the future of cyber.  We expect that the Fellows will make a proactive contribution to the Cyber Institute’s education, research and engagement activities.  You will contribute to the co-design, co-development and co-delivery of relevant modules comprising the Cyber Mastery and associated programs; developing creative and practice-orientated work programs and initiatives; and generate research-based teaching materials and practices. 
Because cyber is dynamic and ever-changing, we welcome practitioners as much as we welcome those engaged in long-term thinking around how to secure the future of technology for the benefit of humanity.  We are as interested in people who engage in deep research at the intersection of fields as we are in those who are interested in leading the way through a different model of university education.  We are looking for people who are able to work closely and collaboratively with end-users and partners, who have an entrepreneurial bent and enjoy a challenge.  And we are after team players: those who are invested in the success of the team as much as they are in achieving excellence in their own right. 
Applications are invited from outstanding thinkers with a depth of expertise in one of these areas alongside the breadth of vision needed to re-frame and solve the most important, complex problems of the cyber world. You will be part of a culture with a strong sense of community to discover and define the best outcomes for the Cyber Institute. You will enjoy working in a team, and will be a natural collaborator, facilitating the setting of new standards of excellence and inspiring future faculty and students.
We welcome people from a diversity of backgrounds, experiences and ideas and encourage applications from individuals who may have had non-traditional career paths, who may have achieved excellence in careers outside of academia.
