A Director of Medical Research is available at Australian National University. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. Applications are invited up to 2 Oct 2018 .

The Australian National University (ANU) is delighted to offer this outstanding leadership opportunity.

Since its founding 70 years ago The Australian National University (ANU) has led the nation in delivering research that has changed the world. Founded in 1948, The John Curtin School of Medical Research (JCSMR) is Australia's national medical research institute. JCSMR has a distinguished record in fundamental and applied biomedical research, including the award of two Nobel Prizes for work conducted in the School. Our current faculty profile extends from senior scientists with international name-recognition, to a strong and growing cohort of highly talented younger research leaders who will ensure that our long-established reputation for research excellence will be sustained into the future.

Research at JCSMR is conducted in four Departments: Immunology & Infectious Disease, Genome Sciences, the Eccles Institute of Neuroscience, and the Australian Cancer Research Foundation Department of Cancer Biology & Therapeutics. The School provides world-class research infrastructure, including the Australian Phenomics Facility (animals), the ACRF Biomolecular Resource Facility (sequencing and synthesis), and the Imaging and Cytometry Facility.

ANU has an ambitious agenda for health and medical sciences over the next 5 years and, following the retirement of the present Director, seeks a leader of international stature to be the new Director and to lead the JCSMR as it continues to achieve great things in both research and translation to health outcomes. We seek a leader with vision and the passion to inspire, who will go beyond established boundaries and who will forge new paths to the future.

The position is full-time, fixed-term for five years with the potential for renewal. A competitive salary package will be negotiated with the successful applicant.

For information about the position or the application process, please contact Dr Rachel Lucas, Director RLCSearch, telephone +61 (0) 402 891 029 or email

Applications will close at 5:00pm Australian eastern time on October 2nd 2018.
