About the College

The Strategic Plan calls for the University to serve society through transformational research and education. As one of the great universities of the world, ANU is driven by a culture of excellence in everything we do. 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. The ANU College of Engineering, Computing and Cybernetics (CECC) hosts three of the key disciplines necessary to help us design, build, regulate and secure the future.

CECC is a vibrant and diverse community of more than three thousand students, staff, and visitors. We welcome and openly acknowledge differences in expertise, research / education / professional focus, experience and perspective. Our College comprises three schools: The School of Computing, School of Cybernetics, and School of Engineering, supported by the Professional Services Group.

The School of Computing has a strong foundation in computing and information sciences at ANU. We are a transformative centre for research in data science and privacy, artificial intelligence and machine learning, computer systems and software, and theoretical foundations of computing. We span traditional and modern thinking, connecting decades of computer science methodologies with modern data and computational science. Our mission is motivated by the need to design, drive and sustain strategic activities via five broad focus areas: Computing Foundations, Computational Science, Intelligent Systems, Data Science and Analytics, and the Software Innovation Institute. The Software Innovation Institute supports an innovative and forward-looking agenda utilising software for social good, building on a diverse and inclusive culture.

About the opportunity

There are multiple fixed term roles available for a period of 1-3 years, hosted at the Software Innovation Institute in the ANU School of Computing.

Applications are particularly invited from developers and researchers who undertake high impact collaborative and cross-disciplinary research and/or development in the areas of, but not limited to, privacy, health, data science, and federated machine learning. You will also bring to the team a strong background in software engineering and will have the opportunity to mentor a team of junior software engineers.
