A publicly-funded University and inclusive community with 35,000 students across multiple campuses, ACU welcomes people of all beliefs.

Remuneration: Salaries may be negotiated based on qualifications and experience. Indicative salaries: Senior Research Fellow starts at $123,300 + 17% employer superannuation contribution. In addition, the roles attract a generous research allowance. The starting dates for appointees are open to negotiation

*Note: These positions are not fixed-term but continuing, which, in the Australian context, means there is no end date and would normally continue until such time as the staff member resigns or retires. A period of probation may be attached to these positions. Please consult us if you need further information.
