The ANU Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics is seeking an inspirational scientific leader in any field across Gravitational Wave Astrophysics with equity agendas, who can grow ANU’s leadership in gravitational wave astronomy. It is an expectation that this position will take on the role of Director and play a significant part in shaping the future of the Centre. The appointment comes with an attractive start-up package. The University may also consider placement for a partner as per the University dual career procedure.
The Australian National University Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics (CGA), is a joint facility of the Research School of Physics (RSPhys) and Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics (RSAA), featuring pre-eminent astrophysicist Nobel Laureate Brian Schmidt, Australia’s leading Relativist Susan Scott and fellow Prime Minister Prize recipient and leader of Australia’s gravitational wave instrumentation program David McClelland. 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 brings together existing ANU researchers in these areas under one umbrella.
CGA is a team of experimental and theoretical physicists, engineers, and astronomers who work collegially towards their shared goal of advancing gravitational wave astrophysics research and translating the science and technology to a wide range of high-precision measurement applications. We thrive on learning and advancing together. We value equity and diversity and implement action-oriented strategies toward fostering an inclusive, diverse, welcoming and respectful culture in our workplace where everyone can bring their whole self to work and flourish.
