    The Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, has recently established a new Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics (CGA), jointly supported by the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the Research School of Physics.

    The Centre encompasses all aspects of gravitational wave physics and astrophysics, including instrumentation, theory and data analysis, source follow-up and multi-messenger astronomy. It will bring together existing ANU researchers in these areas under one umbrella and expand the capability by making up to seven new tenure-track academic appointments across these research programs over the next year. The inaugural CGA Director is Professor David McClelland.

    We are now seeking Expressions of Interest for the key appointment of a Full Professor (Level E). It is the intention that the appointee will initially take on the role of Deputy Director, in the anticipation that they will take over as Director within the next five years. We are seeking an inspirational scientific leader with an equity agenda from any area of research covered by the Centre, who can grow ANU’s leadership across all areas of gravitational wave astronomy. If you think you have the skills, vision and drive required to fill this role, please consider applying, regardless of your current level of appointment.

    The appointment comes with an attractive start-up package and the ability to help shape the future of the CGA through subsequent faculty hires. This is a tenure-track position with a negotiable probation period.

    We are now seeking a 2-page Expression of Interest (EoI), along with a complete CV. EoIs will be accepted any time up to March 31st 2020. We anticipate advertising the position in April 2020. You are encouraged to contact Professor David McClelland (david.mcclelland@anu.edu.au) for further information.
